"make install" problem (KDE 3.1, kfrontend in kdebase)

Hello to all,

I have a problem with "make install" (kde 3.1, kdebase): compilation
was OK, but during installation I get the following:

charlie:/home/alex/KDesktop/kde3.1/kdebase-3.1/kdm/kfrontend # make install

[snip]

I don't have "kdm-keys" on my system, but it never was a problem (I've been
compiling KDE on my own for quite some time now). Does anybody have a clue?

Cheers, alex.

In case somebody else gets the problem: I have found the reason for
the mysterious crash. I have reported the bug (a buffer overflow in
genkdmconf) to KDE team under

http://bugs.kde.org/show_bug.cgi?id=54787

Cheers, alex.

1. "mounted cd-rom" and "mounted samba share" icons on KDE 3.1 desktop

I have just installed Mandrake 9.1/KDE 3.1 on my machine. I noticed
that I now have a set of icons coresponding to automounted
directories. For example, I have both a "Mounted CD-ROM" and a
"Mounted Samba (Windows)"-type icon. While I think this is a nice
trick, I would like to remove these icons from my desktop (I prefer
the command line for such things). However, I could not find any way
to achieve this; right-clicking on the icons does not offer a "delete"
choice. I would greatly appreciate if somebody would enlighten me as
to what KDE option or configuration file do I have to modify.

Thank you in advance for all your help.

Gerd
