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: firstname.lastname@example.org 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 // Martin Konold, Herrenbergerstr. 14, 72070 Tuebingen, Germany // // Email: email@example.com // 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.
