      The official how-to from Mandrake. It is quite simple.
      Thanks
      flipsoft

      Also I downloaded every package except for the ones with the -devel-
      wording in them.

        Thanks flipsoft I'm still a n00b I have all the RPM's but it seems
        that one was corrupted, that's why it didn't work, now I'm going to
        try the installation again.

        That s Ok! Everyone was a n00b once! If you want another cool thing for KDE3 goto

          That's Ok! Everyone was a n00b once! If you want another cool thing
          for KDE3 goto
          ftp://ftp.ibiblio.org/pub/Linux/distributions/contrib/texstar/Mandrake-8.2-i686/

          and download the mosfet-liquid-0.9.4-2mdk.i686.rpm package for KDE3.
          This is by far the coolest theme ever. I think people should package
          this sucker as the default KDE3 theme.

          Ok, Here is the bass ackwards method I used to install KDE3 on a pristine RH7.1 installation (very painfull) first off... rpm -ev `rpm -qa|grep ^kde` get rid
          Message 4 of 20 , May 1, 2002
            Ok, Here is the bass ackwards method I used to install KDE3 on a pristine
            RH7.1 installation (very painfull)

            first off...
            rpm -ev `rpm -qa|grep ^kde`
            get rid of all the 'base' kde packages...

            download all the redhat rpms for kde3 (minus the i8n files you don't need)

            now... the qt3 rpm is CORRUPTED :( it isn't good, the qt3-mt.so.3 file is
            bad.

            so download the qt3 src rpm and compile it (a good 1-2 hour process on my
            I8.1)
            remove all the qt rpms you find using rpm -qa|grep ^qt

            it will bitch and moan about broken dependencies, use your best judgment.
            you will also have to download many of the redhat 7.2 and 7.2 update rpms...

            in terms of the order... I forgot :( but it is easy to figure out by using
            alternating rpm -Uvh *rpm looking at the missing dependencies and
            installing those, then re-running rpm -Uvh *rpm

            if you have any other questions, feel free to ask me, I'll be glad to help on
            an individual basis...

                  kde 3 requires the fam daemon (file alterations
                  monitor). Do you have that one? I ask because on
                  slackware fam is not included with kde 3, I had to
                  look it up on linuxpackages.net and install it
                  separatelly. funny, I found within some gnome distro
                  :-)

                  Cheers,

                  I tried upgrading to KDE 3.0, and I have screwed something up... When I tried to rpm -Uvh *.rpm I get this message: qt-Xt-3.0.3-5.i386.rpm: read manifest
                  Message 8 of 20 , May 3, 2002
                    I tried upgrading to KDE 3.0, and I have screwed something up...

                    When I tried to 'rpm -Uvh *.rpm' I get this message:
                    qt-Xt-3.0.3-5.i386.rpm: read manifest failed: Success

                    and it stops.
                    Did you have this problem, too? I'm running basically a stock RH 7.2 with
                    the 2.4.7 kernel. Will I need to compile the qt from source?

                    Thanks for any advice,

                    Brian

                        ... like I said... the redhat binary rpm for qt3.3 is no good... you have to manually rebuild the src rpm using rpm --rebuild it s something to do overnight

                          it's something to do overnight etc :)
                          but I did that and it works perfectly!
                          and it's more 'form-fitting' to your machine.

                              Now my KDE3 is running after i reinstalled MDK 8.2 Still have a problem with the startup, the KPersonalizer is running on every startup even if I do what says

                                Now my KDE3 is running after i reinstalled MDK 8.2

                                Still have a problem with the startup, the KPersonalizer is running
                                on every startup even if I do what says on the readme, to put some
                                lines in the config.

                                Also somtimes when i make a click on home and Konqueror is opened, I
                                go to mnt directory and it Konqueror just disappear and i have to
                                open it again.

                                But i can live with this, by far KDE3 is better than XP or GNOME.
