I’ve resisted too long. Finally I was coerced into it. After having spent a lot of time on a different project, I’ve tried to spend a little more time in KDE 4, and then Konqueror stopped working. It would give me a fatal error every time i tried opening. I found someone else reporting the error and it had been suggested to go ahead and upgrade KDE. I checked for new packages in Hardy Heron, but none were available. The upgrade from the run prompt using
kdesudo “adept_manager –dist-upgrade”
After a successful install on the machine that has the most packages, I chose to repeat on the other machines. Yay, I’m able to use Konqueror again.
I’ve also been very happy with some of the other improvements. While I was disappointed to see that KDE3 is missing, KDE4 now supports saving sessions and locking the terminal. Both were my biggest complaints aside from crashes.
