I did just that and started to port today's CVS snapshot of knowit to KDE4, 
find the initial port at


(will move it to playground when okayed by MichaƂ)

It's not finished, I just made it compile and not crash at startup. The 
mainwindow comes up and it loaded my .kno file without problems. Some code is 
known to be not ported, I disabled those sections using #ifdef 

Feel free to test and contribute. As for Andreas, I don't have the time to 
maintain the application, I probably will just do a basic port to make it 
work for me, on Linux and OS X.
