There are a few releases done for KDE 4 on Solaris 10. You have KDE 4.2.4 and 4.3.0 (both 32-bit and 64-bit versions). One copy is stored on the http://solaris.bionicmutton.org website built on Solaris 10 and OSOL snv_111b (aka OpenSolaris 2009.06). The merged distribution of KDE 4.3.0 and OSOL comes on Korona 0.0.2 (http://www.genunix.org/dist/korona/Korona-0.0.2.iso). Use this to help review work on KDE 4.3.x work on Solaris 10. Belenix is also releasing KDE 4 on Belenix 0.8.
Recommendation Note: Only use KDE 4.3.x and higher for Solaris 10 and OpenSolaris 2009.06-based distros.
Blastwave.org maintains KDE 3.5.10/Koffice 1.6.3/Amarok 1.4.10 for Solaris 8-10 and OpenSolaris-based distributions. KDE 3.4.3 is no longer used at Blastwave.org.
