I installed KDE 2.2 on my RH 7.1 box when it was released. Works good except for the minor problem with aRts. The currently available RPM's are compiled on a roswell box. : It isn't a smooth upgrade and definitely not something for a newbie to try. RedHat apparently is not going to release a version compiled for RH 7.1. Their priority is bug fixing the Roswell beta, but I can't blame them for that, new releases are how they make money. I'm going to do a clean RH 7.1 install on another partition (I don't want to overwrite my current install) and re-compile the source RPM's, if it is possible to do this without to much work. If I can get them compiled for a smooth upgrade maybe we can get Aragron ( hint, hint ), to post them to the site. I will let you know what is happening.
