I think, the big problem with this upgrade is that it differs too much
from the other kde versions for woody.
Is it really necessary to upgrade to xfree 4.3.0?
The 3.2.0 kde packages dealt well with 4.1.0 and also got along with
libqt3-mt and the 3.2.2 packages now come with libqt3c102-mt.
I think these packages were build on a sid or sarge system and not on a
woody system, is that possible?
