Well, it should do for KDE but may be too new for kernel 1.0. You can always try...

Is KDE in Slackware 3.1? I'm not sure but I don't remember seeing it in 3.4 (I still have it installed ). The orginal kernel in Slack 3.4 is 2.2.15 or something near it.

One more time off topic...

When did Slack make the big jump and skip some version numbers, and does anyone know why? If there is a thread about this, could someone point me? Thanks!

've stayed out of this for now, but I do think I should lend a little justification to the version number thing.

First off, I think I forgot to count some time ago. If I'd started on 6.0 and made every release a major version (I think that's how Linux releases are made these days, right? , we would be on Slackware 47 by now. (it would actually be in the 20s somewhere if we'd gone 1, 2, 3...)

I think it's clear that some other distributions inflated their version numbers for marketing purposes, and I've had to field (way too many times) the question "why isn't yours 6.x" or worse "when will you upgrade to Linux 6.0" which really drives home the effectiveness of this simple trick. With the move to glibc and nearly everyone else using 6.x now, it made sense to go to at least 6.0, just to make it clear to people who don't know anything about Linux that Slackware's libraries, compilers, and other stuff are not 3 major versions behind. I thought they'd all be using 7.0 by now, but no matter. We're at least "one better", right?

Sorry if I haven't been enough of a purist about this. I promise I won't inflate the version number again (unless everyone else does again
Here ya go MasterC. It's taken from the Slackware General FAQ on slackware.com

Wow! Thanks for that great info buddy!

Nautilus, your slack8.1 came with the latest and greatest when referring to KDE, but if you are a bleeding edge kind of person, you will want to get the cvs sources, and build them that way. I would check out http://developer.kde.org/build/compile_cvs.html

To find out about it.

Cool

If you use Redhat 8.0, I think you may want to use Gnome. ( I don't know about the previous versions).
In Redhat 8.0, Gnome is significantly faster than KDE for example, the Nautilus is faster than Konqueror, at least in the boxes i'm using both at my work and home. (It's my own experience and i'm not saying that it is true for everyone.)
