As for as I know CentOS does not have KDE 4 packages. Check in their website to confirm.

Please edit your link to http://kvpm.sourceforge.net/

"KDE Volume and Partition Manager" is not a program
by itself, is a front end to 1) parted 2) Linux lvm.

Parted is not very usable internally ...
Suggest : A live Linux cd with Gparted.

Linux lvm : You already have the GUI tool
system-config-lvm

If not ... then # yum install system-config-lvm
.....

knudfl/ Thanks for your kind reply.

About gparted and system-config-lvm, I know them. But KDE Partition Manager - http://www.kde-apps.org/content/show...?content=89595 - has better functions than them.
