You must be using the KDE version prior to beeing patched. Download the latest KDE packages and upgrade, you'll be fine then.

Im on KDE 3.5.4, installed from the packages upgraded from the version before. Do you mean 3.5? If so do i need to upgrade anything else to use it? Is it easy?

Any help appreciated.

It was fixed Tue Sep 26 05:57:52 CDT 2006, you should just have to upgrade kdebase to the -7 package.

A big thanks to coolo (Stephan Kulow) for coming up with a patch. :-)

Nykey means: you are not running Slackware 11.0 but a version of slackware-current from a time before the "feature only available with HAL" error was patched.
Does that sound right?

To be honest no Im still on 10.2, and upgrade it using slapt-get. I just got the kdebase 3.5.4 package from the site but when i try to upgrade it it says skipping, already installed.

How about you post the output of this command for starters:
Code:
ls -al /var/log/packages/ | grep kde

Do you now see the difference ? You are using the 3.5.4 packages build 1 and the latest ones are build 7 so you're about 6 'versions' bellow... that's why things aren't working and I've said that on my previous post too. Never trust anything automated and check for yourself. I, for one, would suggest you to start learning the so called "slackware way" of installing/upgrading packages on your system, because it is the safest even tough a little bit time consuming... but it's worth the effort of knowing your system is solid.

I upgraded to the kdebase-3.5.4-i486-7.tgz package but KDE wouldnt start, it said alot of stuff about missing directories, fonts, i think. Not sure how i can paste exactly what came up here, so i went back to the older 1

Any ideas?

The kdebase for Slackware 11 was compiled against a newer X version, which seems to make the difference (somebody correct me if I'm wrong on this). You will either have to go back to an older kdebase, install HAL and DBUS and recompile kdebase --with-hal, or put up with not being able to mount in konqueror. Or upgrade to Slackware 11.
