A Fourth or July weekend present for all of you! (Where you wondering what
you can do over this long weekend? now you know :-)) These binaries have
been pretty well tested for basic functionality. The RPM's have been
rebuilt to solve several dependency problems. If for some reason you
have conflicts with the RPM's do a --force --nodeps on the install.
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. (DEVELOPERS: The date in kapp.h is changed to 20000630).
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 30 June
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.
These binaries are built with QT 2.1.1 (-3mdk if you are a mandrake
rpm user). You must have qt 2.1.1 with jpeg support compiled. Get it
in the same directories as the packages or at any Mandrake-devel
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:

You will also be able to find these at (after a few days):
The RPM's will appear on the Mandrake-devel (cooker) mirrors in the
contribs directory within the next few days. They have been uploaded
to the primary host.
The RPM installs have been tested by me on a Mandrake 7.1
machine. They have also been reported to work on all
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.
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
