If you can't find any RPMs for your distro (from Mandriva or a 3rd party -- check you'll probably have to remove your current KDE install* and rebuild from source, directions for which can be found in the documentation.

* Strictly speaking, you don't have to remove your current version, but it will confuse RPM if you install a compiled version over an RPM version.

BTW, Mandrake 10 is getting a little old; you might want to consider upgrading to a more recent mandriva release.

I have the same situation, and tried to compile from the source and got a couple of questions... Should I compile it to /usr ( as previous KDE) or to /usr/local/kde (as installation recommends?)
