KDE 4 has been announced for a long time and, since I first heard of it, I subscribed to the mailing list. I keep hearing about the new features the kde team for this new version and I’m really anxious to try out. Finally two days ago, I decided I wanted to install the beta version and see how things were for myself. In order to install the KDE 4.1 beta packages, one needs to run an unstable Debian (or Sid) which wasn’t my case since I’ve installed a testing (or Lenny) version two months ago. So, first things first, I had to upgrade my distribution.
Here’s how things went:
deb http://ftp.fr.debian.org/debian/ sid main contrib non-free
deb-src http://ftp.fr.debian.org/debian/ sid main contrib non-free
Everything went fine, except that I lost the setup for my nvidia drivers in the process and had to resintall them but that was easy enough since I had blogged the install procedure last time.
