At first glance there is no difference between these two sources (checked some media infos, checksums, package versions,...)... Whoever did this separation...

No, there aren't.

Code: Select all
# lftp -e ls ftp://distrib-coffee.ipsl.jussieu.fr/pub/linux/Mageia/distrib
cd ok, cwd=/pub/linux/Mageia/distrib

When checking the content of the mirror via rsync you will see that those are only links:

Code: Select all
$ rsync -r --exclude "/**/*" --dry-run rsync://distrib-coffee.ipsl.jussieu.fr/pub/linux/Mageia/distrib/

It was just an idea to give a simple and quick way to install the final release.

Yes, you are right and i think about this sometimes.

This is a good news. It does not take up extra space and repo of 5 is exactly the same as 5.1.

If you really need a supported distro that has KDE4, perhaps you can try Rosa Fresh 11 KDE4, it has updated kernel 5.10. It is the closest sibling to Mageia.
Btw, you are not the last man on the planet using Mageia 5. I still have M5 on two of my old laptops and they run flawlesly :D .
Although, I would suggest upgrading to M8.

A.
Mageia 5.1, KDE4, x86_64
Mageia 8, Plasma, x86_64

Along the lines of running old DE but maintained, there is Trinity installable on Mageia 8. Started as a fork of KDE 3.5
https://wiki.trinitydesktop.org/Mageia_ ... structions
Mandriva since 2006, then Mageia since 2011 at home & work. Thinkpad T43 & T400, Dell M4400, Acer Aspire 7. Workstation using LVM, LUKS, VirtualBox, BOINC

I really want it, but first I need to complete the missing functionality.

Interesting thing but i cant test it (especially python bindings for kde) because: "incorrect MD5 sum" when i try add this repo.
