KDE

if you installed red hat linux 7 typical then the KDE desktop is not selected. so install RH7 in custom mode and select KDE desktop.

Well, if you have internet connection, you don't necessarily have reinstall the whole linux system. You can just as easily download the new version of KDE and install it from there. Don't go thru the trouble of reinstalling unless you necessarily have to, not for a problem like this.

Two possible reasons for your trouble:
1. The header files aren't installed (kdesupport-devel)

2. The configure script is doing something wrong e.g. looking for the wrong places in the filesystems to find the required files.

Solution:
Easy: install rpm-files
not so easy: check the configure file and adjust it.

rpm is the redhat package format. These are files ready to install on your system by just typing one command (or one click if you use kpackage or gnorpm).
These packages are named e.g. kdesupport.2.0-5.rpm.

If you are completely new to LINUX i think it's best to start with them first. For KDE you can find them on their website/ftpserver (www.kde.org). There is also a website called http://www.rpmfind.net, where you can search for applications suitable to your LINUX-Version.

hope this will help you a little.
