Sorry, but I don't have the exact error reports as I wanted the system to be 'usable' again as fast as possible and I forgot about them.
I wanted to install quanta from pkgsrc. It's pkgsrc-current extracted from the tarball around 11 october. I use kde 3.1. After doing 'make install' in /usr/pkgsrc/www/quanta, the process ended with an error compiling kdebase2.2. At this moment, the kde desktop wasn't usable anymore. (the icons didn't function and the K-menu was almost empty.) Then I 'did make update', and kdebase2.2 was fetched and compiled, but it failed to install because arts had to be pkg_delete'd first.
I found this rather strange and decided to leave it alone.
After rebooting, kde doesn't start anymore (startkde doesn't exist).
on a system with kde 3.1
It's a qt2-application. /usr/pkgsrc/www/quanta3 (qt3) probably works. If qt2 and qt3 can't coexist on a system, shouldn't there be a warning when installing quanta on a qt3 system?
