Install KDE 3.5 only

Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

To put things simply, I'm not a big fan KDE 4.1.

 

I've noticed that although there isn't an option during installation to choose between the two, and that initially KDE 4 is the only version available, after installing certain applications, KDE 3.5 suddenly becomes available. It works, but displays odd behaviour because of the co-existence of KDE 4 components.

 

Is there a way to install Mandriva 2009.0 with just KDE 3.5, and no KDE4 components?

 

Thanks.

Francis

You can not do that with the Mandriva One CD versions. But you can with Mandriva Free or the PowerPack CD/DVD versions.

 

When you are installing your system (for the first time) and you get to the package select section, select custom, then select a very minimal system with icewm-light. After you boot your system for the first time, use rpmdrake to install: task-kde3 and kdebase-kdm-3. Now logout and login to KDE3 and install whatever KDE3 apps you want.

Go here

 

Download and install the xfce version of Mandriva 2009 then install task-kde3.

 

That way you get something completely untainted by the KDE4 virus. (and you might even get to like xfce in the meantime).

 

NB I haven't tried this myself yet though I am pretty sure it will work.
