Today i'm getting my RMAed HDD back :D

Hoping to install something new, specifically a KDE 4+ distro :)

Please suggest me the best one with decent support. I have 3 in my list Mandriva, OpenSUSE and Fedora.

I will be needing one with large repo, less bugs and latest version of softies.

thanks.

Go for OpenSUSE.. its the best KDE distro out there.. about 18k packages are available for OpenSUSE.. more than Mandriva and Fedora.. the hard ware support is although not as good as Fedora but i assure you that it will get installed and will support your hardware easily... The 1-Click install is also great.. you might wanna checkout www.community-opensuse.org... this will help you a lot incase you go for OpenSUSE...

@Darky.. its not that bloated.. i've been using OpenSUSE since ver. 10.. and it has always worked for me.. Mandriva is great but seriously Fedora sux when it comes to installing softwares.. one has to manually add the Livna repository to the Package Manager..

^^fedora 10 is going to release within few days, should I wait for it ?
I have settled for mandriva for now.

One doubt too, can I have sync for dropbox in KDE ?

I too liked Mandriva but after a couple of updates, my sound always gets cooked whether its The One or any version. One thing i have realised is all the distros are the same, given a few things here and there. Mandriva and openSUSE are quite identical with Mandriva being slightly faster imo.

I think Dropbox is GNOME exclusive :( , i may be wrong.

Personally I feel you should wait for Fedora 10 and then give it a go. I have no qualms against OpenSUSE or Mandriva but I would surely wait.

As for Dropbox, I think it is not GNOME exclusive but Nautilus exclusive, it is like an add-on to Nautilus. So if you can get Nautilus going on KDE then probably you should be able to use it.

Try disabling Pulseaudio :) That might fix the problem or set the master channel to PCM )
