Default KDE Versions in CentOS ?

HI LIst;

What version of KDE is included in the latest version of CentOS ?

Also, is there a way to get KDE4 in CentOS ? If so, Can I have both
KDE3.x and KDE4 installed and switch back and forth between the 2
versions if needed ?



Thanks in advance...


/Kevin

I think it should be possible as long as they are installed in
different locations, e.g. compile everything from source and install
to /usr/local/kde4 or something.

But if you break it you get to keep all the pieces!

If you HAVE to have the latest KDE, CentOS is not the best distribution for
you. Enterprise distros are designed for stable longevity, and adding the
latest and greatest every few months would just break it. You can get away
with changing smaller pieces sometimes, like Openoffice or Firefox, but KDE
and Gnome are pretty deeply intertwined into the base OS libs and would be
real easy to break. If you want new and shiny,and don't mind re-imaging
desktops once or twice a year, you can use Fedora or Ubuntu, with their fast
and liberal development cycles. If you want something that will be safe and
stable for the life of the hardware, with one install and only security
updates, CentOS is a better fit.

CentOS has a cousin called Fedora that has the latest and
greatest KDE, Gnome etc which you could look at. Why are
you using CentOS if you have the luxury of considering
"upgrading" KDE?

It's possible, but no one has yet done the work to build/package kde4 for
CentOS (would require upgrading some "core" components, one of which...
qt4)

Not easily anyway, same answers as for fedora apply here:
