hotplug support is integrated into udev now. Read udev's changelog for
more information.

Install licq-plugin-kde

Xorg + nvidia drivers don't work worse than with XFree here.

Nothing is removed but replaced by packages with new names which was
necessary because of the C++ compiler transition process.

I had no problem with the current KDE so far. At least there seem to
be not more bugs than in older KDE packages. ;)

Take a look at the docs, especially for the new udev-package, because
the configuration of hotplug changed.
