Please note: Some of the screenshots above show map themes from the marble-maps package. This package is still in extras-testing, waiting for at least three more testers before it can be promoted to extras. The same holds for monav-routing-daemon, the offline routing backend. If you can spare some time, please become a tester and vote for marble-maps 1.0.0 and monav-routing-daemon.

I hadn't noticed, but there are Mandriva 2010 Spring packages for KDE 4.5.2 available since some days now on KDE FTP. I currently don't know whom to thank but thank you !! (neoclust maybe ??) Packages for both i586 and x86_64 are available. Here are the upgrade instructions:

First, if you have added the repositories for any previous version, remove them with the following command:

urpmi.removemedia kde-4.5

or whatever name you gave to the repository. Second, add the KDE 4.5.2 repository, please try to use another mirror to leverage some load from KDE's main FTP server. For 32 bit systems use the following urpmi command (as root):

urpmi.addmedia kde-4.5.2

For 64 bits systems use the following urpmi command (as root):

urpmi.addmedia kde-4.5.2

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

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 now perform the installation (as root):

urpmi --auto-update --auto-select

After the packages installation finishes, logout and log back in, That's it. If you have any problem with the upgrade, the first thing to do to tryo to solve it is to log out, move away your .kde4 directory and log back in.

I was going nuts because I could not get a sane configuration for my laptop, which has a nVidia NVS 3100M card.
The laptop is connected most of the time to a docking station, which has a external monitor. I want to use the external monitor when the machine is on the dock, and the internal LCD when it is not. No dual head.
openSUSE 11.3 ships with the nouveau driver. It has wonderful RandR support. KRandTray tool detected both displays and allowed me to turn one off and the other on with 3 mouse clicks. It was not perfect, as I had to do it on dock/undock, but also at boot time.
Sadly, nouveau is buggy. At the beginning I was affected by a random freeze bug which forced me to login from my phone to reboot the system. Deactivating acceleration made this go away, but then randomly you will see in your syslog:
[drm] nouveau 0000:01:00.0: no space while unhiding cursor

And the system will get extremely slow. Reboot needed. This was happening too often. My Linux experience completely ruined. I tried various kernels including Kernel:HEAD, but no luck. Known bug, there is a report in Novell bugzilla too.
On the other hand, the proprietary nvidia driver seemed to work well. But KRandTray did not showed two displays. The problem is that the nVidia driver has a proprietary system to support dual head configurations.
You could run the nvidia-settings tool as root (!!) and change the monitor, but this was a very complicated process. My use case is: I want to hack in a different room, 2 clicks and undock.
Today I found googling a tip that made it work like I expected. You need to configure metamodes. Yes, I have a xorg.conf again. My Screen section looks like this:
Section "Screen"
Identifier "Screen0"
Device "Device0"
Monitor "Monitor0"
DefaultDepth 24
SubSection "Display"
Depth 24
Option "TwinView" "1"
Option "TwinViewXineramaInfoOrder" "DFP-0"
Option "metamodes" "DFP-0: null, DFP-2: nvidia-auto-select +0+0;
DFP-0: nvidia-auto-select +0+0, DFP-2: null"

Each metamode disables one monitor. After relogin I noticed KRandTray still showed one display. But I realized I had two possible resolutions, and selecting between them switched the monitors!. Even less clicks than before, where I had to enable one and disable the other.
Lets see how stable it runs :-) .
You can even bind the switching to hotkeys using xrandr calls:
xrandr -s 0
xrandr -s 1

KAddressbook entries not usable from Kmail.

hat was the problem. I used an akonadi address book in KAddressBook,
but in systemsettings' Resources page, it still pointed to a file
resource. I deleted that and added the akonadi resource created in
KAddressBook, and now it works.

In system settings->Personal Information->KDE resources : use akonadi resource.
