KDE 4.4.1 available for Mandriva 2010 !!

The first bugfix release of KDE 4.4 was released at the beginning of this month and again thanks to neoclust we have packages for Mandriva 2010 available since last week. You can follow the instructions of my previous post about the upgrade to KDE 4.4.0 to upgrade to 4.4.1. If you are upgrading from KDE 4.4.0 then don't forget to disable or delete the old KDE 4.4.0 repository before starting this upgrade, just in case. Here are the instructions again:

First, Add the KDE 4.4.1 repository, for 32 bit systems use the following urpmi command (as root):

urpmi.addmedia kde-4.4.1 ftp://ftp.kde.org/pub/kde/stable/4.4.1/Mandriva/i586

You can use another mirror if you want. 64 bits packages aren't yet available, but probably they will be this week and you should be able to use the following repository:

urpmi.addmedia kde-4.4.1 ftp://ftp.kde.org/pub/kde/stable/4.4.1/Mandriva/x86_64

Then update the repositories and download all the packages before actually installing them to make sure that the installation is possible:

urpmi --auto-update --auto-select --test

When all packages finish downloading and you see a message at the end saying that the installation is possible, you can now run the same command without the --test parameter to perform the installation:

urpmi --auto-update --auto-select

After the packages installation finishes, logout and log back in, That's it.
