First I note that I have been a bit busy for the last week, or so, since 
the uninstall script from R went rouge and screw up my system.

So, I have updated LFS to the current SVN and reinstalled a lot of other 
stuff and it now basically works correctly.

Did we reach any decision of whether we would have a forum (which I 
don't like) or a list for issues related to building KDE from source?

Otherwise, if you have started monitoring the BLFS support list:


and you can ask questions about KDE build and install (from source) 
questions there.

I also note that I said that I would write a new TechBase page:


and now that I have a system that I can build on again, I will start 
working on it next week.

I also note that there is a FAQ for building KDE-4 from source.  If you 
have questions that have general applicability (e.g what version of a 
certain dependency is needed) please post them there.  If you want it 
answered soon, you might post a note here, BLFS or send me a personal 
email.  Your questions may be edited for clarity.

Help is needed to maintain TechBase.  The sections relevant to building 
KDE-4 that others have written have received some hit and run 
maintenance but they have become badly out of date.
