I've created a test user where I test much of this from. What would you
consider the best source for KDE 3 rpms for SuSE 7.3 at this?


Hmm... I didn't have any problems with RC3 installing on SuSE 7.3. Perhaps
if you gave us a little more info on the actual message we might be able to
help. I would really suggest holding off for 3.0 official RPMs. I just
installed this last night when you mentioned you had problems and I have a
test system I enjoy breaking ;-). Or perhaps reinstall the RPMs you
originally had and modify the startkde file in /opt/kde3/bin.

Thanks Anthony. In the interim, I went to and
downloaded/installed their SuSE rpms rc3b3 which work pretty well. The
only problem was that I couldn't install the "kdeedu3-3..." rpm and
received a msg with regards to something to do with "PREIN" ????


The problem with DCOP server is caused by missing entries in the
startkde file. Below is a patch that should fix your startkde file to
make KDE3 work again. Good luck. Oh and sorry about this not
threading correctly, I lost the original email and pulled the subject
off the SuSE web site.
