Upgrade to KDE 3.1.x via apt-get

Hi, first post (almost newbie but linux fan)!

Nice to see there is a RH specific forum.

I 've fallen in love with apt-get for updates (RH 8.0)!

The problem is that looks like that I cannot upgrade to KDE 3.1.x via apt-get.

First I have some problem finding an up-to-date apt repository and to get access to it because all the ones I tried are ALWAYS logging me out because too many users (i use apt-get update/upgrade).

The second problem is that using:

apt-get install kde

tells me that package kde was not found found.

Looks like that the apt repository must have a kde and kde-extras bz2 package.

So, can somebody please suggest me a smooth upgrade path to KDE 3.1.x in RH 8.0 (possibly via apt-get)?

Thanks a lot,

On the page there is a link:
If you go here, it will explain how to use apt to get KDE 3.1 with Redhat. Another thing you can do (which I did) would be to download the files from KDE and just do an rpm -Fvh on all the files. HTH
