Red Hat 7.3 actually comes with KDE3.0.0, but labels it as KDE3.0.1
in kdeversion.h. Change the following lines:

#define KDE_VERSION 301
#define KDE_VERSION_STRING "3.0.1"


#define KDE_VERSION 300
#define KDE_VERSION_STRING "3.0.0"

and PyKDE should build. You can change kdeversion.h back to the
original values after building PyKDE.

The next release of PyKDE will use:


to determine the KDE version. As far as I know, this info is
correct in all distributions.

Note that PyKDE-3.2.4-1 only supports KDE through 3.0.0. Support
for 3.0.1 and 3.0.2 are forthcoming in the next release.
