well all is well and on its way on my Laptop now and compiling
QT4.4.0 and once that is finished I will start it with kde4-base.
BTW, I have on it kde3 too.

Still I like to get it gooing with the eternal HD with zfs, and
as a clean kde, as I have nothing els on it yet, just to start
with kde4 and nothing else. :-)

How can I use the cvs there?
