Yes - I know - I really wanted to fix the issue - it would have given me a bit more in my PCLOS "education".
I have to tell you that I have tried to re-install 2009.2 on that PC again - I get a great KDE3.5 install but - again - when I do get the KDE4 up on it - it just refuses to play nice. OK - what I have done now - was to pull the HD out and install a new 500 gig SATA - and I am now installing a clean - fresh copy of 2009.2 ( I'll pull my data off the other drive later ).
I am contemplating 2 things 1) with a clean install - try the process again. Do the Upgrades - etc and the KDE4 upgrade or 2) wait til PCLOS releases with the KDE4 ready to go and see if that works out.
I am leaning towards the later ( number 2). WHY ? because I now believe that the PC I am trying to upgrade has underlying issues. With a clean install and all the upgrades marked and installed from heanet repo, I can't seem to get the resolution higher than 1024x768. The OS detects the card correctly but that's all. Something to look into Monday.
It's Friday late afternoon here - I am going to pick this up on Monday - I am not giving up.
I just installed a fresh copy of 2009.2 updated it using the kde3.pclosusers.com repo, and than using the same repo installed KDE4.3 without any issues.
I updated kde3 using the following repository
Use this line in your /etc/apt/sources.list
pclinuxos/2007 main extra nonfree kde
DO NOT select any other Repository
After I updated 2009.2 (KDE3.5) I edited the above line to read rpm http://kde3.pclosusers.com/pclosfiles/
pclinuxos/2007 main extra nonfree kde4
Than in synaptic I clicked "RELOAD" and than selected and installed "task-kde4-minimal" I than rebooted and went back into synaptic and installed "task-kde4" and "task-kde4-extra" I rebooted once more and went back into synaptic and clicked on UPDATES and marked them and installed them. Couldn't ask for an easier update.
