I failed to install KDE in a 128M SD card - not enough space!
Sorry for the delay in answering.
I have installed the packages for kdebase, kdepim and the libaries. So the whole KDE. I installed at the same time "octave" and "vim" and some other minors. I looked at space in SD before and after and it was around 250-300 Mb.
It runs very well althought some applications (konqueror, kate...), takes its time. In fact, konqueror no more than mozilla; around 45 sc. on the 6000 at 400 Mh. Once on the screen, it seems to me a little bit quicker.
My opinion is that it should be installed on SD. It takes a little while to install but afterwards everything is o.k.
Pgas, I don't recommend to launch the X's in the usual way and the run "startkde". I have tried as a variant but there is a mixture of windows from openbox or icewm and the K's.
I suggest for those using KDE and also Matchbox or Rox or any other to write a few short scripts to launch one or the other. Someting like:
ln -s /usr/bin/mbsession .xinitrc
and call it "mbstart". Then: "chmod +x mbstart" and "ln -s mbstart /usr/bin/mbstart" You see the idea....
The same for "kdestart" and any other wanted.
I used "ksnapshot" to obtain the simple jpg attached.
