Hi,
Iwas wondering if it's possible to use kde 3.4 with Blag? If so what's the best way to get it?
Thanks

Take a look here:
http://download.kde.org/binarydownload.html?url=/stable/3.4/RedHat/Fedora3/i386/

There may be some other KDE/FC3 packagers out there too.

This is assuming you are running BLAG30000.

Hi Jebba,
I downloaded kde-base from one of the mirrors you told me about. Thanks.
I suppose that was the right one to download first?
It's an .rpm and me being pretty new here can you tell me how to install it so it comes up as an alternative wm when I log in?
I used to use Blag 10k about 6months ago but this new release 30k is wonderful.
So far I've got system sounds, streaming audio (Goon Show :-), xine playing dvd's. The scanner works. You name it, straight out of the box. I'm going to put it on my laptop now. It's a keeper and it's got character!
thanks

Glad you like it. Stepping you through an install of KDE that isn't in the repo...well, that's a lot of steps...

If you're new to this, you may not want to do it, unless you want to get your hands dirty. But in sum, you can just download all the RPMS on kde.org and then `rpm -Uvh kde-XXXX.rpm` and they'll install...

I guess some of the mirrors on kde.org don't give you everything you need to install all of the rpm's. More than a few times I was asked for the BLAG CD. I haven't done it on 30K yet but I just used Synaptic on 10K to get KDE. It seemed much less trying than hunting for dependencies. :idea: Is there a repository for KDE in 30K, Jeff?

Ya, KDE is in the repo for 30k, but he wanted the bleeding edge version of KDE. Well, i'm not sure that's what he wanted, honestly, but it's what he got. ;)

You can install KDE on 30k with synaptic, but it's version 3.3.1.

I wanted 3.4 but I installed from KDE from the repository and it works just fine.
