How to update to KDE 4.4.1?

Postby CDS on Tue Mar 09, 2010 12:03 pm

Dear forum members,
I tried to update to KDE 4.4.1 by selecting Kubuntu backports in 'Software Sources>other software'. There is always error. I am stuck to update any package. I reinstalled the whole system 3 times. My present system is KDE4.3.5 and the following error is always given. What went wrong? Is there any specific update command particularly for Mint 8 KDE?

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

Re: Hash Sum mismatch issue
thanks for the help, i changed the software sources to main source and that worked for me


I'm strongly suggest you backup your system first such as using remastersys before upgrading to kde 4.4.1 as there's some people (including me myself!) got some (annoying) issues after upgrading..
Cheers.. :)
