from upthread:

"> I've just tried a virtual machine installed with "minimal X";

I had already minimal installed to Intel/Radeon hardware and added KDE3"

I guess what we're really working on here is how to replace KDE3 with TDE.

Other than Firefox & SeaMonkey, nothing I recall. I have more than 30 
multiboot systems, and this has been my first openSUSE TDE try. Before I've 
only used TED on *buntu, and very little of that because of my distaste for 
*buntu's Debian foundation and *buntu tweaking.

Didn't help.

It contains only:
	include /etc/*.conf

> /etc/*.conf, and /etc/profile.d/*.sh

In /etc/profile.d/, 'll | grep kd' produces null.

/etc/ # ll

'mv kdelibs3.conf kdelibs3-conf' or kdelibs3-cfg and reboot didn't help, nor 
did rerunning ldconfig after the rename and another reboot.

Does every KDE3 package in the openSUSE catalog have a TDE replacement? If 
so, then all of kde*3* probably needs to be zypper rm'd, and the KDE:KDE3 
repo rr'd. As of now there remain 21 such packages:

words are persuasive." Proverbs 16:21 (New Living Translation)
