I have built the SVN 4.4 BRANCH from source, but I haven't done much
more than start it since I have been having problems getting enough
information to update my build tutorial:


I also found enough information here and there to start a tutorial on
how to configure D-Bus:


I didn't understand the lack of information on building KDE, but then I

This is not a good situation.  It shouldn't be necessary to determine
things by trial and error.

IAC, I will have to look at KDE-4.4.  I will judge it by whether or not
there are still a lot of little things which are, missing, not quite
correct, or broken.  I am not really interested in the new geeeee whiz
