KDE / Xinerama lost


Wow.. looks like i've really done it now..


I run slackware linux, and before -current came out with a kde 3.1 set of packages, i used a generic set made by someone. Once Slackware came out with the 3.1 .tgz 's i deleted my /opt/kde dir and my /usr/lib qt* directories.. and then reinstalled KDE from the -current files.

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.
