Well now i don't have Xinerama.. i did not edit my XF86Config file from the time i reinstalled KDE so Xinerama should still work..
i even deleted the /opt/kde and /usr/lib/qt* dir's again and installed the generic kde packages.. and i still don't have Xinerama.. what did i do?
Do you still have the newly downloaded KDE Slackpacks on your system? If so, do an upgradepkg:
upgradepkg <existing kde package>%<new kde package>
This will remove the old package, then install the new one. If they are the same name, just do upgradepkg <kde package>
. This should update it to where it should be.
Also, make sure that KDE 3.1 doesn't require a newer version of X than what you have. If so, you'll need to download the latest X and X devel packages that will be required. Hope this helps.
