Fedora KDE Spin
The KDE SIG prepares live images with the newest available KDE release for every release of Fedora. If you want to use KDE in Fedora this is the proposed way for an installation.
The KDE SIG proudly released KDE live images for the past releases of Fedora 7, 8 and 9. You could download the newest release, Fedora 9, directly from Fedora's download page: http://fedoraproject.org/en/get-fedora The older but still supported Fedora 8 is still available via BitTorrent or a mirror near to you (you'll have to browse to the directory releases/8/Live/):
The next release of Fedora will bring KDE 4.1 to your desktop and is scheduled for October 2008.
The KDE live images are composed from the official livecd GIT. The latest development version is available here: http://git.fedoraproject.org/git/?p=hosted/livecd;a=blob;f=config/livecd-fedora-kde.ks;h=97f0e00ee10fbc4645517835f8466a3ea3356690;hb=HEAD
This is the TODO-List for the KDE live images until Fedora 10 is released.
- Make sure that that at least the image for i686 is not bigger than 700 megs.

Differences to a default installation
This section describes why some packages of the group "KDE (K Desktop Environment)" are not included in the live images. The usual reason for this is the limited space on the images. Please be aware that the excluded packages may change in the development process until Fedora 10 gets released.
|package name:||Explanation for the removal|
|digikam||Duplicate functionality with gwenview, the default image viewer.|
|kaffeine||Duplicate funtionality with dragonplayer, the default video application.|
|kdeedu||not enough space and not so important like other applications|
|ktorrent||kget is also able to do basic torrent downloads|
|scribus||only needed for specific tasks and not enough space for this|
