Hello, I have downloaded and installed KDE 3 from blastwave.org.  I'm 
running Solaris 10
SunOS jtmuzix 5.10 Generic_118833-36 sun4u sparc SUNW,Sun-Blade-1000
I have a user jtmuzix with $PATH that includes /opt/csw/kde-gcc 
directory.  I have also added

setenv  LD_LIBRARY_PATH ${ LD_LIBRARY_PATH}:/opt/csw/kde-gcc/lib

to my .login file.

without any text with just an X.  I click on that box and it either 
freezes or goes back to the Solaris login screen.  Any ideas on what's
