Re: [kubuntu-kde3.5-users] 64bit & Selected KDE 3.5 packages?

I'm using a 64 bit intrepid with KDE3.5 and it works well.
I suppose for jaunty there are also 64 bit packages available.

I think, the packages of this KDE3.5 repo are based on the KDE packages
of hardy. Tim only changed minor things like the location of the KDE files.
Therefore you have the same options for package administration as in hardy.
The only problem I recognized is that you cannot install the KDE3 and the KDE4
version of a program at the same time, because the manuals of the KDE3 packages
are still located in the old path and therefore conflict with the manual of the
KDE4 package. But If you need both packages you can force the installation
(via dpkg --force-all <deb_file>).
