    Anyone tried KDEMod 4.2?

    Still mega curious about this. Supposedly 4.2 is this giant improvement. Might be enough to make me do the ol' switcharoony, but I'm not sure.

    I have kdemod 4.2. It's way better than 4.1. Less bugs, faster etc

    I'm on KDE 4.2 RC1, and it is faster, especially konqueror. Dragonplayer seems smoother. Some things still crash for me as they have always done (on any kde4 installation), notably plasma, konqueror, juk, shaman (arch only), and rarely, dolphin. Not any real changes to the design/interface. For me, there were no problems or drawbacks in upgrading from 4.1.

    Those crash are packaging related.

    What do you mean by 'packaging related'?

    That KDEMod repositories suck. And most problems are caused by their mistakes. If you truly want to test KDE 4.2 as it is, use OpenSUSE 11.1 Build Service (Fedora packages are better too).

    Well I ain't getting rid of Arch no way no how, so OpenSUSE 11.1 is out, so's Fedora. Heavily tempted to give 'er a go. If things go **** up I'll just reformat, since I've been wanting to switch filesystems for a while now.

    There's an Arch KDE 4 live CD, if you want to give it a shot before installing it:

    Tough, if you truly think about using KDE 4 as your main desktop, OpenSUSE is still the best option.

    Yeah, thing is, I've used OpenSUSE before. I don't like YAST, I don't like RPM-based distros, and I'm not going to install something that comes on a 4 gig DVD. SUSE's another distro with the theory of "throw everything in there to make sure the user has what they need". I just want the DE, not the OS.

    Then, your best shot (even tough I don't agree with anything you said) is to compile KDE 4 from sources (or wait for 4.2 final).
