 Qt version 2.1.0 has been released. These binaries where built with the 
 release package. You can get it here, or you can get it elsewhere, but
 you will need to upgrade. DEVELOPERS: the new QTDIR is /usr/lib/qt2.
 When you upgrade plese consider copying your old /opt/kde2 to an
/opt/kde2.old directory and then installing. This way you have something
to go back to.

 These files are available via ftp from:
 or via http at: (follow links for kde2 Alpha 
 You will also be able to find these at (after a few days):
 The installs have been tested by me on a Mandrake 7.0

 most recent version of rpm, I would suggest
 an upgrade. You will need to do a --force and a --nodeps on the rpm 
 If you are running prior Alpha's I highly recommend you 
 update. There are a lot of fixes and some structural 
 changes in the packages. 
 You will also find Source tar.gz's in the same
