Linux After two years, the relatively popular PCLinuxOS distribution has finally put out a new major release, imaginatively called PCLinuxOS 2009.1. PCLinuxOS is a release originally based on Mandrake (now Mandriva), but which has taken on a life of its own. The distribution has one selling point (for some, at least) few other popular distributions have: it eschews KDE4 (for now).

RE: Compatible with Mandriva?

Installing on Mandriva packages made for PCLinuxOS is a really bad idea. The same goes for packages made for Mandriva installed on PCLinuxOS.
I suggest you to try the Mandriva community KDE 3.5.10 package. It is not officially supported by Mandriva but is compiled for Mandriva and it is supposed to work. One place where you can find community packages is here http://mib.pianetalinux.org/miblight/repository-2/
Or you can wait for the community release of Mandriva One 2009.1 + KDE 3.5.10 which should occur about two months after the official release.

Thanks for your answer. Where did you see KDE3.5.10? I could not find it neither in http://mib.pianetalinux.org/2009.0/ nor http://mib.pianetalinux.org/2009.1/.
Why do you think there is going to be a Mandriva One KDE3 version for 2009.1? Was there one for 2009 that I missed?
