KDE 4.x ?


Not sure if this is the right forum or not -feel free to redirect me if necessary...

I'm running several Fedora 7 and Fedora 8 machines - all with KDE 3.x
I would like to try KDE 4.x. Is it possible to install that on one of my existing machines without removing KDE3? Can I switch between the 2?

Or should I just wait until Fedora 9 comes out with KDE4 and use it then?

If I can install it now, are there tutorials or documentation that describe how to make it run side by side with KDE3?

thanks,

nbc

On openSUSE, KDE3 and KDE4 can be installed side by side and you can switch between the two. I am sure the same would apply to Fedora, but I am not sure if the Fedora developers have released KDE4 for Fedora 8. KDE4 will definitely be in Fedora 9.
