Can anyone tell me how to install KDE 3.0.4 over 3.0.0

Isn't a little much to ask people to install 112 RPM's? I just got the rpms from and read all the install instructions and readme files but I havent a clue still how to install them. I have tryed to install everyone of the rpms and kpackage just crys about this or that so I goto the shell and I get the same thing. It's either a conflict or a dependancy issue with both kpackage and the shell. So what gives am I just stupid or am I missing something? Maybe the instructions could be written better... Anyhow thanks for any help given in advanced...

There are several options you can try.
First, open rpmdrake as root, and click on the define sources button. Select the directory where you d/l your rpms and define it! next, deselect all the other sources, so that you only see the rpms you d/l listed.

select the ones you want to install and away you go.

If you get dependencies errors, install them in the following ways:

arts, arts devel
kde-libs, kde-libs devel
kde-base, kde-base devel

and the rest dont matter.

Or you could use console and try

<enter root pwd>
urpmi *

hope it works
