I've successfully build Kde Beta 5 (final relase) from source on a Mandrake
7.1 Distribution and And XFREE4.0.1,  but KCOntrol won't run,
It crash with the following errors :

Here is a backtrace generated by DrKonqi:

    rtld_fini=0x4000ac30 <_dl_fini>, stack_end=0xbffffb4c)
    at ../sysdeps/generic/libc-start.c:92

And when i launch it from the shell i obtain the following messages :

kio (KSycoca): WARNING: KSycocaDict : mHashTableSize is 0 !
kcontrol: WARNING: No K menu group with X-KDE-KControl-Base=true found !
Defaulting to Settings/
KCrash: crashing.... crashRecursionCounter = 2
KCrash: Application Name = kcontrol path = <unknown>
KUniqueApplication: DCOP communication error!  

Anyone has an ida ?

Thank's for your help.


1. X protocol compressor - dxpc 2.0 final beta released

I have uploaded dxpc-2.0beta4, the final planned beta release of
dxpc-2.0, to ftp.x.org:/contrib/utilities/dxpc-2.0beta4.tar.gz.

dxpc is an X11 protocol compressor designed to speed up X applications
run over low-bandwidth network connections (such as 28.8Kb/s PPP links).

dxpc-2.0beta4 is the last planned beta release of dxpc-2.0.  The final,
non-beta dxpc-2.0 release probably will be distributed in a week or two.
Thus, if you encounter any problems with dxpc-2.0beta4, please report
them soon.

From the dxpc-2.0beta4 README file:
