There are bugs, so be forewarned: kde-redhat is presently providing
beta releases (kde4.0.5 can at best be considered an alpha). And, yes,
there are some conflicts. I found that I had to uninstall
kipi-plugins, digikam, libkipi and libkdcraw. I prefer digikam to
gwenview and the kipi-plugins are nicer to use than ImageMagick, but I
will likely only have to put up with this minor inconvenience until
the end of July, when kde4.1 is officially released.
This will get your system upgraded:
sudo yum --enablerepo=kde-unstable --enablerepo=kde-unstable-all
Once kde has arrived at a more robust and stout level of maturity, I
will likely discontinue use of kde-redhat. I cannot predict how rocky
the road back to the official fedora repositories will be, but I
expect that it will be a very smooth one, as the version numbering and
kde-sig should take care of that very competently.
OK thanks. That's pretty much what I wanted to know.
