Of course you cannot install KDE 3 binaries which were made for 13.0! I remember someone on IRC trying to do that one year ago. It didn't work back then and it won't work now either.

As a general rule:

NEVER MIX BINARIES FROM DIFFERENT VERSIONS (OF SLACKWARE).

You've been very lucky.

"NEVER MIX BINARIES FROM DIFFERENT VERSIONS (OF SLACKWARE)". *Most* of the time this rule of thumb is simply not true. You may have to carry forward some libraries, but that is all there is to it.

Actually the last KDE 3 (3.5.10) was for 12.2, and I have been carrying forward that version for quite some time. I think that missing hal will be the stumbling block for running that version for 14.0.

At the moment I run Trinity 3.5.13 on Current (which at the moment is identical to 14.0). There are some glitches, but nothing fatal.

Thanks for the tip.

I had some problems last time I tried Trinity.

(sigh) Hello, XFCE.

Differences of semantics. :-)

What we usually say is: do not mix. Of course, stuff like xlander hasn't been recompiled recently and yet it works well. But for packages that have changed, don't attempt to take one from version X of the distribution and use it on version Y. Don't attempt to do backports.
