Re: [SLE] KDE 3.3 is Out -- Taking the Plunge (?)
  • From: David Chapman <linux-lists@xxxxxxxxxxxx>

Excellent instructions.
Thank you

The only error I have found is with the font installer in Kcontrol centre.
>error report<
The diagnostics is:
/opt/kde3/lib/libkfontinst.so.0: undefined symbol: FTC_SBit_Cache_Lookup
Possible reasons:
An error occurred during your last KDE upgrade leaving an orphaned control
module
You have old third party modules lying around.
Check these points carefully and try to remove the module mentioned in the
error message. If this fails, consider contacting your distributor or
packager.

Any help with this please.
