How to install KDE


I have Fedora Core 2 and I want to install the newest kde. I have downloaded all pakeges for my distro.
How to I install kde? There's 131 files. I don't want to go installing every single one of them...

141, I don't think so
ftp://ftp.oregonstate.edu/pub/kde/st.../Fedora2/i386/
Here is the install guide
You could always try something like this
Code:
rpm -ivh kdelibs-3.2.3-0.1.i386.rpm
rpm -ivh kdebase-3.2.3-0.1.i386.rpm
mv kdebase-3.2.3-0.1.i386.rpm ..
mv kdelibs-3.2.3-0.1.i386.rpm ..
rpm -ivh --nodeps *

YUM

download YUM

Yum can install and remove rpm packages as well as Yum is an automatic updater . It automatically computes dependencies and figures out what things should be occured to install packages.

rpm -ivh --nodeps *
I downloaded the files from your location.
I tried installing the arts-1.2.3-0.1.i386.rpm since it's needed by the rest.
But this is what I got:

Code:
[root@localhost kde]# rpm -ivh arts-1.2.3-0.1.i386.rpm

What should I do now? The rest doesn't want to install without this file?

Thanks, I managed to install all the rpm pakages with this.
But my Kde still doesn't look any different!

All KDE 3.2.X versions up until now looks identical, there's only bug fixes and not many new features(if any at all).

But my kde doesn't look as nice as on Knoppix!
I want it to look like this:

Isn't that more or less the KDE 3.X default look? Change the style to Keramik, Icons to Crystal SVG, and set the colors to KDE default.
Or maybe Fedora had it modified like they did with RH9, not sure.
