Fedora Core 2 KDE 3.3 rpms
 
Can someone tell me where I can find the stable release KDE 3.3 rpms for Fedora 2?
I looked at the kde mirrors but there not there. Even better if there is a yum
repository that would be great.

Go to any Fedora mirrors, and look at the development folder for your arch. You'll have to dig through the files in the Fedora folder as you'll find rpms for both kde-3.2.3 and kde-3.3

Or if you in your yum.conf file (/etc/yum.conf). Unmark those under fedora development, then run yum upgrade kde*
Worked for me.
But there are no stable yet, but those in development are pretty stable.

rejser's suggestion worked for me
 
As resjer said, uncomment the 'Development Tree' entry in /etc/yum.conf, specifically, these lines:

[development]
name=Fedora Core $releasever - Development Tree
baseurl=http://download.fedora.redhat.com/pub/fedora/linux/core/development/$basearch/

Then, as root, on the command line, do:
# yum upgrade kde*

This will download a lot more package headers than normal, and will eventually ask if you want to download and install the updated packages and dependencies. Respond with 'y' here to continue.

To upgrade and satisfy all the dependencies, yum had to download something like 78 packages, it took about an hour on a DSL connection.

Once yum had finished the updates, I logged out, logged back in, and am running KDE 3.3. I'm very happy that this update does indeed fix the problem with K Menu editor not working. I am now able to edit the menu without a problem.
