KDE 4.5 RC3 released for Mandriva

KDE 4.5 Release Candidate 3 is released for Mandriva users. The final version will be available next week. This last RC is intended for verifying no showstoppers will creep into the final release of 4.5.0. It will also interest those who want an early look at what is coming to their desktops and netbooks this summer.

To install, please add KDE 4.5RC3 repo first:

urpmi.addmedia kde-4.5rc3 http://ftp.twaren.net/Unix/X/KDE/unstable/4.4.95/Mandriva/2010.1/x86_64/

I use above mirror for my repo for faster access. You may want to use main KDE server for your repo thus:

urpmi.addmedia kde-4.5rc3 ftp://ftp.kde.org/pub/kde/unstable/4.4.95/Mandriva/2010.1/x86_64/

For x86 (32-bit) users, please change the path x86_64 to i586. Then run urpmi --auto-select to update your KDE packages.

Have fun with your new KDE!
