I would like to add that a Trinity developer is working on .spec files for
RPM builds, so while there is no official timeline, a Trinity RPM
repository may come on line in the future.  Unlike the OpenSUSE version of
KDE3, Trinity is under active development and not only contains many new

You may want to subscribe to the trinity-announce mailing list, as an
announcement will be posted there when/if the RPM repository is ready for
