They say “Never touch a running system.”. Emphasize on “never”, obviously.
I am loosing quite some hours because I “just” wanted to update the KDE packages on the openSUSE system to the latest package version. To find out that the refreshed KMail ignores my command to fetch from the POP3 servers. Ignores my pledge, too. My anger, even. In offline or online mode it shows a new status symbol with the tooltip “The desktop is offline”. Which is wrong. SMTP works even.
Decided to undo the upgrade. Which is not possible. The older package is gone already, no longer available at the openSUSE servers, there is just the new version 3.5.7.enterprise.0.20070731.694771. I could go back to the 3.5.5 version, which came with the Golden master version of 10.2. I don’t think I want to try that, there isn’t a downgrade script for the settings AFAIK.
Now, does anyone know what to do? Has somebody perhaps a copy of an older package of kdepim-3.5.7 for openSUSE 10.2 she could sent me (the link of)? Is there perhaps a way to make the openSUSE buildservice to give me my personal variant of a package on request?
I might not be alone. I would like to enter the bug with the openSUSE bugzilla, but I got moved to a Novell system, not where I thought to end given this is a project on it’s own?
