[kde-solaris] KDE 3.1.4 installation problems

While i can't vouch for the integrity or correctness of any mirror 
sites, you should probably try to download from a different mirror 
site again (i would recommend ibiblio).

The instructions for pam, NAS, etc. should be found in the 
installation instructions. If they are missing, or the file seems to 
have been truncated, something is definitely not ok. If anything, the 
installation instructions for 3.1.4 are even more specific than those 
for 3.1.3.

It looks like kdelibs and/or kdebase have not been installed correctly 
or completely ...

I am surprised that, in case these packages are corrupted (truncated 
or incomplete), pkgadd would still install them ...
