From MEPIS Documentation Wiki
!!! Warning! The info contained in this article pertains to older versions of MEPIS !!!
This was tested on the SimplyMEPIS build 3.4-3. KDE 3.5 is provided with SimplyMEPIS 6.0.
- Enable etch in /etc/apt/sources.list (edit the file as root)
- Run apt-get update
- Then apt-get install kdm kdebase hal (respond "Y" when asked if you are sure, but be careful, don't respond "Y" if apt-get tries to remove important packages -- there's no way to know in advance, since it depends on the Etch status at the time you upgrade)
- Choose "N" when asked about replacing configuration files. (that's not a rule, usually you need to judge case by case, but I chose "N" to keep it simple and I didn't have any problems)
In case you have problems mounting disks: Start KUser and add user 'hal' to the group 'disk'. Save changes. Reboot
