      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

        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

              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

                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

                      you have to manually rebuild the src rpm using rpm --rebuild

                      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 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.
