      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...

            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,
            e.

            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.
