Hi there,

Thanks to excellent work of Duncan of the KDE Packaging Group
([email protected]) RPM packages for KDE-1.1 on Red Hat 5.1/5.2
on Intel architecture are available:

new features:

— The RPMS are now relocatable to install to other locations
besides the default /opt/kde

— The Applications in the “optional” collections are separated
into individual packages, so users have full control over which
subset of KDE apps they install. kpackage-1.1.2 is also
included.

— A shell script “install-kde-1.1-base” is included to handle
the installation of the base package (download it and the RPMs,
install qt-1.42 and then run “sh < install-kde-1.1-base”. Follow
instructions. after the base package (kdesupport, kdelibs, kdebase)
is installed, you will be able to run “install-kde-1.1-apps” (or
even, “uninstall-kde-1.1” — unlikely, of course!)

Report any bugs in the packaging to: [email protected]

The KDE Packaging Group.

Builds of these rpms on other architectures (alpha, need
volunteers to do sparc) will be available soon, as will RPMS for
RedHat 5.0 and 4.2.

Yours,
— martin

Anybody who’s comfortable using KDE should use it. Anyone who wants
to
tell other people what they should be using can go to work for
Microsoft.
