There are no KDE 4 packages for VL 5.8 . If you want to install it, I'm afraid you'll have to build it from souce if you want it real bad.

There are KDE 4 packages for VL 5.9, but they are still very experimental. I have tried them, but I really dislike kde4, even though I love kde 3.x.
KDE4 doesn't seem half as functional as KDE 3.5.x. However, it uses some 100 MB of memory more.

If you're going to try KDE 4, I would suggest keeping 3.x around.

Have to agree with The Headacher on this one (not that I don't usually).  I have both KDE 4.0 and KDE 3.5.8 on my system.  I'm not a big KDE user, but if I had to choose, it would definitely be 3.5.x.

Right now 4.0 is sort of the "Vista" of *nix desktop environments, i.e. lots of promises and not much to show for it except it needs more resources than its predecessor.  Having said that, it is a .0 release, and we probably won't have to wait 5 years for 4.1.  The next release will probably be more stable, more fine tuned, and have a lot of of the customization options put back in.  Probably.  We'll see.

Okay, grateful for the clarifications, definitely should be arming of patience, and hope that the packages are mature enough to use without conflictos.
