I installed KDE 3.4 today with kdm_3.3.2-1b_i386.deb and 
kdebase-bin_3.4.0-0pre1b_i386.deb. It works fine here.

kdm_3.4.0-0-pre1_i386.deb gives the error message "No greeter widget 
plugin loaded. Check the configuration." But well no bugs should be 
reported on that one I read ;-). Would like to test fast-user switching 
which should work with kdm 3.4.

Transistion from KDE 3.3.2/3.3.1 to 3.4 seemed quite smooth up to know, 
aside from that an "apt-get dist-upgrade" wasn't enough here. I had to 
specifically select version 4:3.4.0-0-pre1 for most of the packages to 
teach apt-get to upgrade them. 

Lets see what comes in the next weeks of testing ;-).
