I found that the Testing version of k3b, consistent with library packages and
codecs, will install with 4.6.1. So this is no longer a problem. Decibel
libraries were installed with something else which may no longer be on my
system and I never had the decibel player so I can live without that. Other
small apps not yet ready have never been used by me.
So: Are there any outstanding show-stoppers around? Example threads I have
seen about unstable desktop configurations, "systemconfig" kde-restarts
(current version simply crashes on any of its items so ...), kdm behaviors,
etc. Current kde4.4 from Sid has its foibles but since other family members
must use it, I need 4.6.1 (or any other upgrade) to play for most common
