Re: KDE Not Upgrading

in situations like this, if theres a package I want, and it doesn't
upgrade from running apt-get upgrade, I usually call it via install


apt-get install ark artsbuilder karm ..etc..

you probably only have to do a couple, chances are that the packages
depend on some common thing that for some reason the system doesn't
want to install by itself. but the specific instruction to install
a specific package, in my experience, will trigger the system to
do so. Be careful, take a look at what it will install, I reccmend
doing an apt-get -s first, to simulate what will be installed.


Thank you thank you thank you! After messing around in dependency hell (and actually having KDE and KDM removed) I finally have KDE3! :)
