If your distributer doesn't have updated packages in it's repositories, you'll have to either find unofficial packages, build yourself or switch to a distro that does. Can't offer anything more specific since I don't even know which operating system you're running?

I wonder downloading tarball archieves and compile it is the good thing than rpm.
If you can, download and install apt and it SHOULD be able to handle that for you.
What is apt? Where can i download it?

i gotta warn you compiling takes forever. and don't compile or install as root also i gotta suggest using konstruct to download/build/install. just go into the folder kdebase and type "./configure" then "make install".. that should install it at /home/"yourname"

I wouldn't install from the original sources unless you need a custom setup or you're using something like Slackware that doesn't have RPMs. For something like KDE (and especially GNOME), there's a lot to compile, so it gets to be really time consuming.

Since there aren't any packages available for your specific distribution, I would honestly suggest just sticking to the version it comes with until Mandriva makes updates available.

If you like to stay up to date without hassle, a different distribution using apt-get or a ports-like setup that updates frequently would be better.
