Today is the release day of KDE 4.0.0. The packages should find their way into the repository soon or they are already there. What's missing is another live image to test the new stable version of KDE without the need of installing rawhide.

http://www.fedoraforum.de/iso/test/rawhide-KDE4-i686-20080109/rawhide-KDE4-i686-20080109.4.iso
http://www.fedoraforum.de/iso/test/rawhide-KDE4-i686-20080109/rawhide-KDE4-i686-20080109.4.sha1sum

Package list:
http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/SebastianVahl/CurrentPackageList?action=recall&rev=25

Some screenshots of a running livecd:

Some notes:
- the live image is for i686
- the packages are from 2008-01-09
- system-config-date is a newer version (which removes some dependencies: https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=420101) - the updates for xorg-x11-server and xorg-x11-drv-vesa aren't included because the rest of the new x-server was missing
- installation should be working again
- firstboot seems to be re-written and is lacking the possibility to add a new user. This has to be done manually with "adduser"

If you file bugs please add them to the KDE4Live-Tracker: https://bugzilla.redhat.com/showdependencytree.cgi?id=421891

The problems from the former kde4 live image are collected here:
http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/SebastianVahl/KDE4LiveBugs
Please verify if they are still existing. If so, please file bugs and add them to the page and/or the tracker.

And please note: This is a test release for the inclusion of KDE 4.0.0 in Fedora. If you think there are other things, which could be enhanced, please notice us. If you find problems, please bug them. If you think you could/would help us constantly, feel free to join the KDE-SIG and/or participate in our SIG-Meetings:
http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/SIGs/KDE
http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/SIGs/KDE/Meetings

Help us to create a great user experience with KDE 4 in Fedora 9.

This said, have fun with it. :)

I got the iso and burned it on several different media but I always get and error--something to do with isolinux. I just wonder if it is because of my old hardware Compaq workstation 790- dual P 3 xeon, ATI 9600xt AIW.

Has anyone had good luck booting this?

I haven't even been able to connect to the website again for the sha1sum.

Thanks,
