How to install kde 4.9 to Mageia 2
Hi folks and greetings. My doubts here are if there is a way to install the latest kde version to Mageia 2, namely 4.9. Is it now included into the repositories for update? Or maybe (I haven't found one myself so that's why I am asking here), is there a how to upgrade it? Some repository I can add, maybe?
I hope you can give me an answer for yes and how, no matter what your answer is I'll be glad to know.
Thank you very much for your time.

This is not possible for now as updates do not switch to newer version but include patches in existing version. This will possible as soon as backports media is available. We hope to be able to open it in coming weeks.

If running the latest KDE is important to you, why not try running Cauldron? I run Cauldron (Mageia's rolling dev release) and currently use KDE 4.9.1 without issues. They just released 3 alpha 1 which probably has it too.

Just remember that both the alpha and cauldron releases are not for those that require stability or are new to linux.
