    how did you manage to get KDE4 installed on BT4? I was under the impression it didnt work with BT? Is it stable and working ok?

    KDE4 by default is still not stable enough... when it reaches 4.3 or 4.5, well, then, probably. It's too young still.

    Upgrading from the Ubuntu repo's will overwrite the kernel, which will make you lose all the patches the BT devs have put in.
    Of course, if you really wanted to have some fun, go to Wal-Mart late at night and ask the greeter if they could help you find trashbags, roll of carpet, rope, quicklime, clorox and a shovel. See if they give you any strange looks. --Streaker69

    Default Out-of-context/ rant

    I know this forum is for Backtrack/Linux only; however, I could not help but mention my disgust with kde-4.2.3 on BSD/Unix, my Sony Vaio felt like I was running Windows Vista/slow and sluggish, so I removed it.

    Good luck with that on Backtrack.

    Explain how you are running the Ubuntu repos on BT4? I am interested in how you did that. Or am I not understand you correct?

    Ubuntu 9.04 is great. I have had no problems with it. Kubuntu....... well I don't like KDE4 very much. Its all show.

    You just add them to your list.
