KDE 4.9.x is not supported by FC17?


I was trying to upgrade my FC 17 Beefy Miracle's KDE but the latest 4.9.0 and 4.9.1 is not finding its path. Am I missing something? I use Ubuntu 12.04 also and there is KDE 4.9.0 (didn't get the latest release 4.9.1 in there, though). But in Fedora, it's 4.8.5.

What could be the problem?

KDE 4.9 was released in August but Fedora 17 was released back in May. Use Rawhide or wait for Fedora 18.

Does that mean the KDE version can't be upgraded since it is released after FC 17? That didn't happen in the case of Ubuntu. The day KDE 4.9 was released I did an apt-get (update and upgrade) on Ubuntu 12.04, and it was upgraded!

Thumbs up

@snowpine I feel dumb as I didn't open all links while searching for 'how to get kde 4.9 in fedora 17'.
Now I think I have got my answer here: http://desix75.wordpress.com/2012/08...ing-fedora-17/

Though it indicates to 'unstable and testing' versions. God forbid, I don't want to feel dumber by getting a load of bugs with this unstable release! I'm going for it, anyway.

Thanks, dude for trying to help out.

P.S. I have used backports PPAs there, though. I thought I should mention that, forgot to mention in the previous post, sorry!
