Switching between installed KDE versions


I'm considering installing KDE4 to play with it a little, but should I find it too buggy, I'd like to be able to return to KDE3.5. Does anyone know what environment variable has to be set to switch back and forth between KDE versions?

I believe you use "XSESSION=kde-X.XX" in the file /etc/rc.conf for that. It may vary depending on your distro though.

You can create separate KDM sessions for KDE 4.x and 3.x and at login, choose the version you want to login to.
