Updated (02/16/2010): repository URL’s changed and 64 bits packages are now available 馃檪

This last Tuesday KDE SC 4.4 was released and on a lightning-fast time, neoclust managed to have packages available for Mandriva 2010 on KDE official FTP mirrors (thanks neoclust !!). If you want to upgrade to it, it’s really easy. First, Add the KDE 4.4 repository, for 32 bit systems use the following urpmi command (as root):

32 bits:
urpmi.addmedia kde-4.4.0 ftp://ftp.kde.org/pub/kde/stable/4.4.0/Mandriva/2010.0/i586
64 bits:
urpmi.addmedia kde-4.4.0 ftp://ftp.kde.org/pub/kde/stable/4.4.0/Mandriva/2010.0/x86_64

After adding the KDE 4.4. repository you will need to update, download and install all of KDE 4.4 packages. You can do all of this in one command, but I, for safety, prefer to do it in two steps. First, update the repositories and download all the packages before actually installing them to make sure that the installation is possible:
urpmi –auto-update –auto-select –test
When all packages finish downloading and you see a message at the end saying that the installation is possible, you can now run the same command without the –test parameter to perform the installation:
urpmi –auto-update –auto-select
After the package installation finishes, logout and log back in, that’s it !! you will have a brand new, shiny, awesome and rocking KDE 4.4 desktop 馃榾
Enjoy !!
