Comment 1 William Kenney 2014-08-02 22:44:02 CEST
Same thing happens when I attempt to install Gnome
IceWM-light gets installed instead.
Comment 2 Dick Gevers 2014-08-08 02:20:18 CEST
In my experience 90+ percent of KDE4 gets installed, but kdebase4-workspace, kdm and task-kde are not. 

So if an urpmi command for those 3 is executed after install, plus drakedm to have kdm become the preferred display manager, this problem is solved.

IceWm is the fallback DM if the preferred DM does not work.

It's already in BZ:

Worked on it this morning and found the culprit. Mail sent on dev ML:

"While working on alpha 2 isos, I found a conflict between kf5-libkscreen
and mageia-kde4-config. Having the first package on iso prevented
mageia-kde4-config to be installed and then borked all isos. Can you
please have a look on this?"

So rebuilding isos excluding kf5-libkscreen for now as long as it's not fixed properly

ok found, this is because kf5-libkscreen and libkscreen provides both 


we need to version some requires. I look at it.
