I downloaded kde4 rc2 source from, and then followed the building 
guide on the website.  Extracting it, source .kde4rc (also got from the 
website), running cmakekde, and it compiled and installed itself.

Anyway, I think that there should be such a script in the kdebase module...

No.  I have a startkde script for kde3.  But it was installed on /usr and kde4 
was installed on /opt/kde4.

Mandriva 2008

Just wanna give it a try.  And, now I'm doing the kde translation, however the 
kbabel could not process kde4 messages properly.  And my kaider could not run 
on my kde 3.5.8 properly.  That's one of the reason I'd like to see kde4.
