It's 2 weeks now that I'm trying to install KDE on my zipslack 10.0. I've successfully installed the following packages (from /slackware-current/slackware).
Stuff needed by KDE or arts:
- libart_lgpl-2.3.16-i486-1.tgz <- required by KDE
esound-0.2.34-i486-1.tgz <- required by arts
libmng-1.0.5-i486-1.tgz <- required by KDE
audiofile-0.2.6-i486-1.tgz <- required by arts
libvorbis-1.0.1-i486-1.tgz <- required by arts
libao-0.8.5-i486-1.tgz <- required by libvorbis
libidn-0.5.8-i486-1.tgz <- required by KDE
libmad-0.15.1b-i486-1.tgz <- required by arts
glibc-2.3.3-i486-2 <- wymagane przez KDE
I ran this script to set the environment variables (based on the one from the KDE installation instructions):
export KDEDIR PATH LD_LIBRARY_PATH LIBRARY_PATH
Configured the xorgconfig, copied /etc/X11/xinitrc.kde to ~/.xinitrc, started the X and the KDE config wizard appeared. I set it all and ksplash sprang up. It went well until initializing peripherals. It just started doing NOTHING AT ALL. I could move the mouse etc., it didn't crash, just stopped working. After some time ksplash disappeared (without moving on to the next stages of KDE startup) and the screen was entirely blank (except the mouse pointer, of course). I was so pissed off I just shut the X down and rebooted... I tried it a few times, but it's always the same. WTF is happening? How do I fix it?
