Default How to upgrade to KDE 4.6
I am very new to bsd and kde as well ,I have always used gnome
so as i am sure you know KDE 4.6 has been released and tbh it looks
really good .I really want to upgrade to that and i find out that it
is already been ported for bsd.
can someone please put me in the right direction of how i can
upgrade to 4.6 ?
i have find this guide :
Now you can get KDE SC 4.6 via svn checkout:
svn co
svn co
svn co
svn co
Then try:
sh Tools/scripts/portsmerge
sh Tools/scripts/kdemerge
Happy updating!!

But when i enter sh Tools/scripts/portsmerge i get >No such file or directory
and when i checked i dont have any such file .
sh Tools/scripts/kdemerge
returned alots of options so i assume i need to enter more options and path
i think this is a guide for people that know what they are doing
can someone please help me sort this out?

Updating all of KDE can be a big task. You might be best off waiting until PC-BSD 9 comes out, which will probably feature KDE 4.6. It'll save you some headaches.
