First, I can say for certain that you need to upgrade


and due to mutual dependencies, the easiest way is to upgrade all 4 of 
them at the same time either with Kpackage or with the command line.

This is probably the devel package for: "kdebase3"

This is probably the devel package for: "kdelibs"

Not sure what that is.  Probably it was changed to: "kdesdk" so you will 
need to remove it before upgrading.

Note that: "--force" will not override dependencies.  As stated above, 
you need to upgrade all 4 packages.

Now, to upgrade KDE, you will need to upgrade ALL of the packages at the 
same time.  You will need to either have a new version package for each 
old version package installed or you will need to remove the old version 
package not being upgraded.

You might also need to upgrade Qt and aRts.
