How do I upgrade from KDE 2.2 to KDE 3.0.3 (on mandrake 8.2)?
I was just over at www.kde.org, and was reading about ugrading to KDE 3.0.3. I am currently running KDE 2.2 on Mandrake 8.2. I clicked the link for the pre compiled packages, and a whole bunch of links came up for different files to download.
Is there a simpler way to do this upgrade?
Is there any online documentation that would help me out with doing this upgrade?
Im new to linux (just got it running today), and I have a feeling im gonna need quite a bit of help for the next couple of weeks

Hope you have good luck with that superguybob. When i went to do the upgrade i had to install each pack separatly and even force some to get them installed. It was kindof a pain but worth it in the end. I could not get the command line method of installing all the packets at once to work. I am also new on Linux.
Can any one tell me why KDE did not have a one file download? That would really have helped me out.
Have a good day!

"Make a directory and download all the RPMs into it. The QT libs are with the other RPMs you are downloading. After you get them all, open a console, change to that directory, su to root, and enter the command urpmi *.rpm Be sure to have your Mandrake disks handy. The install will ask to pull some files off them. When all done, log out and then log back in with KDE3. "
