These will appear firstly on ftp://ftp.de.kde.org/pub/kde/stable/1.1pre2/distribution/rpm/RedHat-5.1/i386 ftp://ftp.de.kde.org/pub/kde/stable/1.1pre2/distribution/rpm/RedHat-5.2/i386 and shortly delayed on ftp://ftp.kde.org/pub/kde/stable/1.1pre2/distribution/rpm/RedHat-5.1/i386 ftp://ftp.kde.org/pub/kde/stable/1.1pre2/distribution/rpm/RedHat-5.2/i386 Unlike the earlier RPM packages, these are fully relocatable using "rpm .... --prefix=<your desired location>" and all associated configuration scripts should reflect your chosen location ($KDEDIR) Extremely simple post-installation scripts "usekde <user>" and "kdm_on"/"kdm_off" are described in the accompanying "readme-redhat-rpms" document. qt-1.42-3rh5x.i386.rpm, which now includes the qimageio extension library requested by many users, is supplied with the KDE RPMS. Send comments about problems with the RPM packages to <firstname.lastname@example.org> (RPM packages for RedHat 4.2 and 5.0 will appear soon) Volunteers to rebuild the RPMS on other architectures are requested to contact email@example.com. Yours, -- martin // Martin Konold, Herrenbergerstr. 14, 72070 Tuebingen, Germany // // Email: firstname.lastname@example.org // 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.
