First, Add the KDE 4.5 RC2 repository, for 32 bit systems use the following urpmi command (as root):
urpmi.addmedia kde-4.5rc2 ftp://ftp.kde.org/pub/kde/unstable/4.4.92/Mandriva/2010.1/i586/
You can use another mirror if you want. For 64 bits systems use the following urpmi command (as root):
urpmi.addmedia kde-4.5rc2 ftp://ftp.kde.org/pub/kde/unstable/4.4.92/Mandriva/2010.1/x86_64/
Then update the repositories and download all the packages before actually installing them to make sure that the installation is possible (as root):
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 (as root):
urpmi --auto-update --auto-select
After the packages installation finishes, logout and log back in, That’s it.
thanks for the link. I thought the dir name was 4.5rc2. 🙂
I notice a bug with klipper(makes it almost unusable), which doesnt exist in kubuntu 10.04 kde 4.5 rc2 packages. Where can I report this bug?
As they aren't official packages I think the best way is to contact the packager directly, try his blog:
