VERY IMPORTANT: THESE BINARIES ARE CREATED FROM THE CVS AND MAY NOT BE
IDENTICAL TO THE BETA THAT WAS RELEASED. THESE ARE NOT OFFICIAL KDE
BINARIES. THIS CODE IS BUILT FROM THE CVS - MOST OF THE TIME IT WORKS.


MORE IMPORTANT: (And don't say I didn't tell you!) MAKE A COPY OF YOUR
.kde and /opt/kde2 directories so if something doesn't work you have
options (like going back).

This will be the last build in June. Please note there are new package
names in the RPMS and some of the packages have been split into multiple
RPMS. Please even if you are ftp'ing check the web page at
http://us.mandrakesoft.com/~molnarc/index.html for directions.

ALSO, THE PACKAGES HAVE MOVED TO A NEW SERVER THANKS TO MANDRAKE. PLEASE
CHECK THE LINKS BELOW.

 A new version of the KDE ALPHA binaries are available
 at us.mandrakesoft.com.  Please read the README file in the
 same directory. Just in case you missed it "READ THE README" prior to
 doing anything! If you need help installing please go to www.kde.org and 
 look for directions.

 These binaries are built from CVS as of 19 May
 2000 at 12:00am Eastern Standard Time (-0500).

 Please bring all install questions to the un-official
 kde-alpha list at kde-alpha-request at nebsllc.com.

 Qt version 2.1.1 has been released. These binaries where built with the
 release package. You can get the released version used to build this code at 
 any Mandrake mirror, or you can get it elsewhere.

 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:

 ftp://us.mandrakesoft.com/pub/kde

 or via http at:

 http://us.mandrakesoft.com/~molnarc (follow links for kde2 Alpha
 binaries)

 You will also be able to find these at (after a few days):

 http://www.htw-dresden.de/~s2697
 
 The RPMS can be found in the next few days at any Mandrake Cooker 
 mirror site. Make sure you get the 20000619 version.

 The installs have been tested by me on a Mandrake 7.1
 machine. They have also been reported to work on all
 other distributions.

 The rpm's are built with Mandrake 7.1. If you are not running the
 most recent version of rpm, I would suggest
 an upgrade. You may need to do a --force and a --nodeps on the rpm
 installs.

 If you are running prior Alphas or Betas 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
 directory.
