WOOT! Just got finished installing it on my desk top. Got to say I love the addition of the Google search in my Konqueror toolbar as well as the new setup tab in the Control Center for my Samba Server. Cant wait to see what happens with 4.0. Time to go back to playing with my new install to see what other goodies are at my disposal.

Thanks

find a decent ftp server that has the rpms and download them all to the same folder. Open that folder in the console and , as root, type:
Code:
rpm -Uvh --force --nodeps *.rpm
most of the new features are immediately available afterwards, but i usually reboot after upgrading the kernel or the window manager. Force of habbit, i guess..

i've never used slack.. but here's what i found, maybe this will help:

Quote:
Unofficial Slackware-10.0 packages


If you have any problems with installing this release, please send an e-mail to
Jean-Christophe Fargette : kde@fargette.com

Installation (For people that doesn't want to read the Slackware documentation...)
First remove the old packages with the "pkgtool" utility. There are all the kde* packages, arts, qt, kdevelop, quanta and koffice.
Then install the new packages with pkgtool or installpkg with_package_name.tgz

I'm upgrading to KDE 3.3 using Konstruct. I'm using Libranet 2.8.1. And i get this error. You're missing the bzip2 development files. I tried apt-get install bzip2-dev and bzip2-devel but they aren't packages. can you guys help me out? Will libranet do rpms?

Thanks for you help.
