I used the devel repo to upgrade to KDE 4.6.1. I only selected the packages listed under KDE Desktop. It successfully upgraded to 4.6.1 but now when I go to start my graphical PiSI, mi PiSi cat bounces up and down for a few seconds then just vanishes. Should I have upgraded every package in devel?
When I updated I scanned for updates and selected them all, even the ones that weren't associated with the KDE desktop. The total download was over 500MB and I think some of the software in the KDE desktop rely on other applications. Everything is interconnected one with the other, it was almost like upgrading the entire Pardus OS.
My advice would to be for you to do a fresh install of Pardus, add the Devel repo and then search for updates. After the search is done, then download all the updates, non-KDE included and everything will work.
I'm impressed with KDE 4.6.1 on Pardus, it actually fixed a few things with the OS that I had trouble with, like power management troubles with the Opera web browser.
I know it sucks doing a fresh install, but after you do and you install ALL the updates, you'll be glad you did.
