Every few weeks I do a cvsup run and check out the latest and greatest KDE2
source, but it is far from soup; it's beta, and imho, still early beta. The
code base is being worked on rather intensively, so that on any given day
it's a tossup whether what cvsup delivers will build or not!

My advice would be to restore the earlier kde (perhaps doing without kdm?)
and then either play with the source code for KDE2 or install binaries of
it. There are a number of ways to set up a "dual boot" kde system with both
versions on it; see the kde site for suggestions on how to do this, or I
could tell you how I do it.
