Fedora 10 and KDE 4.2.1

Yay, KDE 4.2.1 has been released and already landed in the kde-redhat / testing repository’s. Thanks people of Fedora KDE SIG (Fedora KDE Special Interest Group)! Read the official announcement here: KDE 4.2.1 Release Announcement.  And check the changelog here: KDE 4.2.1 Changelog.

For people who whould like to give it a try before it lands in the official Fedora repository’s, here’s a quickstart guide taken from the KDE-RedHat website on how to make use of the repository’s using Yum:


  • Fedora: kde.repo
  • RedHat Enterprise (and compatibles: CentOS, Scientific Linux, etc…): kde.repo

and drop it in /etc/yum.repos.d/

Note to x86_64 users: You may have to enable both x86_64 and i386 repos.

To install, a simple

yum groupupdate kde-desktop

yum update

ought to fetch and install the packages for you.

To keep up to date, you can periodically run

yum update

on your system as well.

Keep in mind that these are 3th party repository’s and are not officially supported by RedHat or the Fedora Project.
