Step 4

Step 5
- You must configure your .bashrc and add the next environment lines :

-------------------------------------------------
export KDEDIR=/usr/local/kde3

export QTDIR=/usr/local/qt

export MANPATH=$QTDIR/doc/man:$MANPATH

export PATH=$QTDIR/bin:$KDEDIR/bin:$PATH

export LD_LIBRARY_PATH=$QTDIR/lib:$LD_LIBRARY_PATH

export YACC='byacc -d'
--------------------------------------------------

Note 1 : Create the kde3 directory in /usr/local

Note 2 : Create the qt directory in /usr/local:

Step 6
- untar qt-x11-free-3.3.3.tar.gz file in /usr/local/qt directory.

Step 7
- Logout from session.

Step 8
- Login as root

Step 9
- Go to the /usr/local/qt directory and run the ./configure script with this parameters :

./configure -system-zlib -qt-gif -system-libpng \
-system-libjpeg -plugin-imgfmt-mng -thread -no-stl \
-no-xinerama -no-g++-exceptions

Step 10
If the ./configure was OK. Now compile with make.

Step 11
- If the compiling was OK type make install.

Step 12
- ldconfig

Step 13
- Edit the /etc/ld.so.conf file and add the next line:
/usr/local/qt/lib

Save and exit.

Step 14
Now you must compile the KDE sources follow the next way :

1.- arts
2.- kde-libs
3.- kde-base
4.- kde-artwork

- Untar arts-1.3.1.tar.bz2 and compile (./configure && make && make install)
- Untar kde-libs-3.3.1.tar.bz2 and compile (./configure && make && make install)
- Untar kde-base-3.3.1.tar.bz2 and compile (./configure && make && make install)
- Untar kde-artwork-3.3.1.tar.bz2 and compile (./configure && make && make install)

Step 15
If KDE it's not your window manager type "switchkdesk KDE"

Step 16
Run startx. Enjoy!

Note : By default KDE come in English. If you want to change this you must compile kde-i18n-3.3.1.tar.bz2. (./configure && make && make install)
