Cool Danger in upgrading kde3.5 to kde4 on existing Fedora 8 system?

Hi all,

I want to upgrade to KDE4 and it looks like an upgrade has been added to the fedora 8 repo:
[scattaneo@chives ~]$ yum info kdebase4
Available Packages
Name   : kdebase4
Arch   : i386
Version: 4.0.4
Release: 2.fc8
Size   : 4.1 M
Repo   : updates
Summary: K Desktop Environment 4 - Core Files
Core runtime requirements and applications for the K Desktop Environment 4.

This package does not include the KDE 4 versions of applications which are
provided by KDE 3 because of file and configuration setting conflicts.
Before I make the upgrade I was wondering if any one else has done this and run into problems. At the moment, I really dont want to spend a lot of time working with broken libraries (I am willing to re-install kde apps IF needed) so I would rather wait if there are known issues so far.

You will certainly have plenty of bugs. But still will be usable. It will be a much better idea to keep both the versions.

Plenty of bugs for sure and not all that usable, IMHO.
I wouldn't recommend it at all.


fedora, kde4
