KDE 4.0 surely looks interesting and I've already spent some time preparing
the update, that is adding some packages that KDE 4 depends on and creating a
kde4 repository, which is a slightly modified copy of the kde repository.
If you want to give it a try there's an experimental KDE 4 patch queue in
submaster ( http://www.rocklinux.net/submaster ). Once you have build the
packages you want you can test them by e.g. switching to runlevel 2 or 3 and
running 'startx /opt/kde4/bin/startkde' as root. This way you don't have to
change your default window manager or desktop environment.
Here is a list of packages I've built so far and the order in which they were
built (on top of a recent crystal installation):
I''ve briefly tested the binaries and they worked without obvious errors.
However I suggest to keep KDE 3 as the default for a little longer, maybe
even until KDE 4.1 which is planned for June or July, and gather some
experience with this major update first.
