Kde 3.0

Hi I have finally managed to get KDE compiled and installed from source.

I have installed the following in order: -

Qt 3.05
Arts 1.0

When I ran KDE I got the KDE 3.0 splash screen up but also Kicker crashed, which left me with no panel.

I then tried recompiling kdelibs and make install>No effect repeated this for KDEBase>No effect

I tried installing the Rh RPM for KDELibs and hey presto it worked (no more crashes on boot)

However now I am having problems opening the Rh package manager and get errors appearing when opening text files telling me prog doesent exist but then the file opens.

Also I cant get into KDE via my user account unless I set the Init Level to 5 (GUI) and logon and select KDE from there, this doesnt happen when Im logged in as root

WHat do I need to do to solve these problems??

Reinstall package manager from rh cd??? If so whats the name of the rpm and what cd is it on

Install all other KDE 3.0 packages i.e. those that were installed for KDE 2.2????

Reinstall Rh 7.2 without any Gui's then install and compile from command line????

I had a similar program (with crashing KDE apps) when KDE3 was compiled using gcc from MDK8.0 . I replaced it with gcc 3.1.1, compiled again and it works fine now.
