Unhappy [ZipSlack 10.0] Installing KDE on ZipSlack - HELP!!!


Hi,

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).
X.org:
  • x11-6.7.0-i486-4
    x11-devel-6.7.0-i486-4
    x11-docs-6.7.0-noarch-1
    x11-fonts-100dpi-6.7.0-noarch-1
    x11-fonts-misc-6.7.0-noarch-1
    x11-fonts-scale-6.7.0-noarch-1
KDE:
  • qt-3.3.3-i486-1
    arts-1.3.1-i486-1
    kdelibs-3.3.1-i486-1
    kdebase-3.3.1-i486-1
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):
Code:
#!/bin/bash
KDEDIR=/opt/kde
PATH=$KDEDIR/bin:$PATH
LD_LIBRARY_PATH=$KDEDIR/lib:$LD_LIBRARY_PATH
LIBRARY_PATH=$LD_LIBRARY_PATH
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?

TIA,

Rookie One

KDE works fine on ZipSlack. Also I don't remember running any scripts for KDE when I was running ZipSlack. Did you wait enough for KDE to load? It sometimes stays for a while with a blank white/gray screen and then continues. This is very possible as I see your hardware specs.

Nice! Fluxbox is great, but KDE is not a s**t IMO.
