Hey All, 

I've installed all the RC/Beta 4 packages ( I believe the Desktop is still 
under Beta 4, but the kde4libs are RC ) and I must say, some good strides 
have been made, but they should have considered keeping everything at the 
Beta 4 level even if the libs are considered to be RC for simplicity sakes. 
Many people will install the latest version thinking that it's a full RC and 
as you can see when you install, it isn't. 

One big thing I don't see right away is I don't get the pretty flower 
desktop.. Why? Killing Plasma and running it says bad image path.. Doh!.. I 
am going to have to make sure I installed that package I guess. 

WHOA.. Nice splace screen.. haha.. 

Remember password under kdesu.. hummmm where does it store. 

Now with the new kdesu I can't open things, have to run as root from konsole. 

YaST QT Icon is UGLY... In the "taskbar"

Alot more coming up..
