2.2GB is about what a default KDE install would use.

Bad news. I'm going to hold you to it. The good news is that personal
experience shows that's also the right amount:

It's not fscked up that badly on my 32bit x86 system.

As for the 32bit PPC system, if/when someone sorts out the RPM
dependencies so they don't end up pulling in a huge number of
incompatible 64bit packages, I'd say the same. Unfortunately, at the
moment the 32bit packages still "depend" on the 64 bit packages, and so
it fscks up the package management and makes using the updater a very
dangerous, and system destroying, prospect.
