Unhappy KDE 3.03 Upgrade Problems

I DLed the packages from the slackware-current directory at sourceforge for KDE. I used upgradepkg to update all the KDE packages, I also installed the new g++

When I try to launch KDE with startx, it starts normally. Then when the splash would appear, a window instead appears and says "could not launch kdeinit, check your installation" . I click ok, then I get, "could not launch ksmserver, check your installation."

This is what I get when trying to launch KDE:

ksplash: relocation error: /opt/kde/lib/ undefined symbol: _ZNK7QPixmap6metricEi
kdeinit: relocation error: /opt/kde/lib/ undefined symbol: _ZNK11QTranslator9classNameEv
Warning: connect() failed: :No such file or directory
ksmserver: relocation error: /opt/kde/lib/ undefined symbol: _ZN12QPaintDevice13setResolutionEi
Warning: connect() failed: :No such file or directory
Error: Can't contact kdeinit!

Help appreciated.

Slackware 8.1 - mostly updated

I don't use Slackware, but I recently upgraded from KDE2.x to KDE 3. The first thing I had to do was upgrade Qt to version 3. Are you using Qt 3?

If your using slackware-8.1 don't bother installing from slackware-current unless you prepared to install everything, they are compiled with diferent versions of gcc and are not binary compatable.
For slackware-8.1 kde packages go to your nearest kde ftp mirror.
