        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 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...
          here is the list of the ones I had to install:

          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...

                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

                  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

                              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.
