What did you have to do to get KDE back on your machine? I was pretty upset
at how SuSE did these packages myself. The packages off of kde.org did not
have any of these quarks. Only issue I had with them were fairly minor in
the lack of full SuSE menus. But to uninstall my previous kde2 packages and
as seems to be the case on this laptop the init.d startup script for kde, is
uncalled for IMO.

And to the wholier than thou people out there talking about not installing
core software on production machines and blah blah blah......I did say this
was a LAPTOP. Not a server by any stretch. Get off your high horse and if
you don't have something productive to contribute to a thread why not just
say it out loud and save everyone else the bandwidth.......
