Backports 4.2 vs. PPA 4.2
 
Now that 4.2 is in both the backports and the ppa, which is better to use?

If backports are preferred and one has been using the ppa, is there anything
that needs to be done, other than removing the ppa from sources.list?

I notice that kadressbook in the ppa is version 4.1 which was very buggy even
though kontact is 4.2. is kaddressbook 4.2 available for kubuntu, or is this
only being implemented in mandravia and others? If so, how do I force the
install?

Thanks.

I removed the ppa and did a dist-upgrade. No problems on 5 computers.

No idea. The current version in backports is 4:4.2.0-0ubuntu1~intrepid3

Was just looking for a package in the kubuntu-experimental and there
is only 16 packages left there
(https://launchpad.net/~kubuntu-experimental/+archive/ppa). It looks
like they have removed all KDE 4.2 packages from the experimental or
is it another PPA you refering to?
When the KDE 4.2 packages was added to backports I had to deactivate
the experimantal PPA as I got a lot of errors.

The packages from the experimental ppa have (mostly) been moved into
backports so that is the one to use. At this point 4.2 packages really are
backports from Jaunty now. I believe we may use kubuntu-experimental for
testing out Koffice2 packages in the near future.

Ah! This is an important information, shouldn't this be posted on
kubuntu.org as updated news?

Thanks. That is what I will have to do as it seemed to work for Alvin as
well.
