Surprise! In addition to version 4.9.0, KDE also releases the version 4.8.5. We will have at least one of the two? :?:

kdegraphics4 is a metapackage graphics applications works fine

4.8.2-4.8.3-4.8.4-4.8.5are minor versions (with bug fix)of KDE 4.8 perhaps there is no difference
I always trust mandriva packages (also unofficials from helio and neoclust)never ended with broken system

it seems that kdegraphics4 and kdegraphics4-core are deprecated. someone can confirm ?
they are not used by 4.8.4
if you uninstalled them then this does not uninstall other packets

but ksnapshot surely not deprecated

i tested kdepim suite 4.8.4 by updating lde to 4.8.4 , with rm 2012 lts ee rp1

kontact crashes : you can't use kontact

kmail crashes : you can't use kmail

with mandriva 2010.2 (2010.3) i586 kontact and kmail don't crash and are usable

it's a nogo for me
