Hi, I've been having the same problem with RH9 and KDE3.2.1. I've posted the same question on the KDE forums here
There have been a couple of answers that may work for you. So far they haven't for me. I'd be interested to hear of any RH9 users that have installed KDE3.2.1 successfully *from source* via Konstruct and if so did they have a similar issue.
