KDE Bundle


Is there any RPM (or combined package of some sort) that will install all of the packages required by KDE3? No matter how many hundreds of libraries and packages I download myself to upgrade to KDE3, it never seems to be enough. For those of you who also use *NIX software on the OS X side using Fink, the term is "a convenience bundle".

If there isn't one of these, then is there any other way of upgrading to KDE3 without having to manually download hundreds of RPMs based on dependency errors of already-downloaded RPMs?

if you have mandrake then you can easily upgrade with the package manager, or jsut use urpmi from a command line.

Is there a manual anywhere on how to use Mandrake's Package Manager? I have seen it before (and even launched it), but I couldn't figure out how to make it work right. If I can figure it out, that would certainly save me a lot of time (and a lot of bandwidth ).
