n00b questions about Kopete


First off, I have an older version of kopete installed on my Suse 10.0 x86 box. However, I would like the latest version. I've tried compiling , but i get no where with it and have had to give up.

Is there a Suse 10.0 rpm for the latest version of kopete?

The other question I have is regarding uninstalling kopete.
When I uninstall the current version that I have and re install a newer version, the account information that I had on my original install version ( MSN, ICQ account details) re-appear.
I'd like to be able to completely uninstall kopete, including all account information.

Where is this information stored, so I can delete it?

If you want to delete Kopete's configuration completely, you have to delete

Source code


Perhaps you should not delete these items immediately, but only rename them.

thanks for the info.

Presumably there's no Suse rpm for the latest version of Kopete?
I've had a search around and found nothing.

use the opensuse build service. IIRC, it has packages for Kopete 0.12.1 which is not the latest. It may have packages for Kopete 0.12.2 already as well, but i don't know.

Ok, I've no idea what suse open build project is, but I've had a look on the web and it seems to be something like some thing to promote new versions of Linux. It sounds a bit vague to me, but there you go.
It also says that


Users can easily browse through and download the latest packages
although for the life of me,I can't see where this section is.
I've done a search for Kopete on the open build project and come up with nothing.

Can you point me in the right direction?

Many thanks,
