KDM from KDE3.2beta1

I am using the script like this in $HOME/.bashrc for new KDE:

export QTDIR=/usr/local/qt-3.2.2
export KDEDIR=/usr/local/kdeCVS


export QMAKESPEC=$QTDIR/mkspecs/linux-g++


export PATH=$KDEDIR/bin:$QTDIR/bin:$ACDIR/bin:$AMDIR/bin:$KDEVDIR/bin:$PATH

export KDEHOME=~/.kdeCVS


Note that I had to install new autolocal, autoconf, qt and additionally 
kdevelop. If you do not need to set up something like them, exclude the 
lines from script. Using KDEHOME you can have two local .kde directories 
to be used with original and newly installed KDE.
