Su SE nevertheless offers packages with KDE 2.0 pre-release snapshots.
Alrighty, now that YAST knows where to go and how to get there, we need to perform the system update.
Let's open YAST (or go back to it if you still have it open).
The great thing about having it ON is that you will have the very latest available software at your fingertips when you go into YAST to install packages.
However, the drawback is that it can take several minutes to refresh each of your Installation Sources.
It's security update mechanism is called Yast Online Update, or YOU.
This makes sure that any security patches available for your current software are downloaded and applied. I would like to outline how to make sure, through YAST, that you have all packages on your system updated to the latest possible version. It's worth a note, however, to mention that because a lot of these packages are bleeding edge, slight system instability may occur from performing the updates listed here.
From this "Software Source Media" window, click ADD, then HTTP: A little window comes up asking you to fill in the information about the Installation Source. All we need are the server name and the directory on the server. When you're done, click OK: After a little patience, you'll see that the PACKMAN Installation Source appears in the list of our "Software Source Media" window: You will also notice that there is a column called REFRESH. If the REFRESH value is set to ON, it will "refresh" the list of available packages from all of your Installation Sources when you go in to install packages in YAST.
If it is set to OFF, it will not refresh these lists.
