Well, the ftp-directory you mentioned is the right one, it's just that
the new version of KDE (1.1) was just released and the guys at KDE
haven't hade the timw yet to make rpm's for you. However, if you are
really anxious to get KDE you could either download an earlier release
or you could download the .src.tar.gz's from
and compile them manually.
Concerning the issue why RedHat 5.2 doesn't come with KDE, I have no
clue. However I still don't think that it is anything that I "can't
For me it's like KDE isn't that big deal anyway. It comes with some
great apps, but the environment is a hog when it comes to memory
consuming. I still prefer the fast and stable WindowMaker. Besides, KDE
is to much like Windows, but hey, it's your choice and I think the guys
at KDE makes a great effort in providing a easy look for everyone
converting from Windows to Linux.
