Common Mistakes

If configure claims Qt cannot be found, have a look at
to get latest copy of Qt 3.3.x version. If you have peeked there already,
grab the CVS module qt-copy from, or a snapshot thereof.


You can use --enable-debug with the configure script, if you want to have
debug code in your KDE apps and libs. I recommend to do this, since this
is alpha software and this makes debugging things a whole lot easier.

More Info

Have a look at the individual subdirectories, if you want to know, what
versions of apps are included.
