Thank you for your answer. In fact i was not expecting to have an official
build, not yet :)

I was wondering if there was any problem in compiling and installing KDE on a
solaris 10 box. So far i have read only few discussions about this.

That's a good point :-)

Anyone succeded in installing it from the companion cd ? At installation time,
solaris 9 companion CD is not recognized. I will try to install it once the box
is fully installed.

Do we have to compile KDE with gcc ? or is it possible to compile it with Forte
compiler ?

Kind regards,
