But I (a debian user) want to be able to run binairies I got from company XYZ.
is that not impossible since they want to build against <any_distro> and have
links to the wrong libs?
Also I have never been successful in running KDE2 binairies alongside KDE3
anyway, they always crash; or just look horrible. So we screwed up the
kde2 BackwardsCompatability anyway. I'd say forget about it..
Hmm, that last sentence makes me realise why debian is taking so long :) Hope
they are less pessimistic then me about the outcome!
