Thread: Will 'KDE Four Live' effectively offer a KDE4.2 SUSE 11.1?

  1. #1

    Default Will 'KDE Four Live' effectively offer a KDE4.2 SUSE 11.1?

    When the final KDE 4.2 is released this month and the KDE Four Live CD is updated, I'm unsure as to whether this represents a standard openSUSE 11.1 install option or this disc is somehow specially geared towards KDE, without the regular SUSE base?

    If we cannot expect to see an installable CD of openSUSE 11.1 with KDE 4.2 made available (needing instead to use the factory repositories to update a 4.1.3 installation), does the Four Live disc not fit the bill? Does it contain all the same base SUSE 11.1 packages, with the ability to install system updates, just like the original 4.1.3 CD?

    It's based on openSUSE and it's Build Service where the packages are built. As You could see there was a KDE3.5.10 LiveCD (unofficial) so there probably will be an unofficial KDE 4.2 LiveCD. Probably you'd still have to use the factory repo of KDE (not the unstable as there are now KDE 4.3 packages) as the "official" KDE in openSUSE is at version 4.1.3. I just installed KDE RC and am quite satisfied with it.
