     33  <application>Trinity/KDE3</application> in the standard system prefix:
    3634  <filename class="directory">/usr</filename>. This option allows the use of
    37   <application>KDE</application> without the need for any additional configuration such
    38   as modification of various environment variables or configuration files. Option two is
    39   to install it in a unique prefix such as <filename class="directory">/opt/kde</filename> or
    40   <filename class="directory">/opt/kde-&kde-version;</filename>. This option allows for

     44  <para>The <application>Trinity/KDE3</application> pakages are undergoing
     45  constant upgrades.  With the 3.5.13 version, the core packages are
     46  configured with <userinput>cmake</userinput> and the rest are built using the

     53    components are to be eliminated, the way is to set the variable
    4854    <envar>DO_NOT_COMPILE</envar>. This comes in handy when there are problems

    54     <para>The core <application>KDE</application> packages also honor this
    55     variable, but omitting components from the core packages is not advisable since

    59   <note>
    60     <para>In each of the packages, one other option to <command>configure</command>
    61     can be added: <option>--enable-final</option>. This option can speed up the build
    62     process, but requires a lot of memory. If you have less than 256MB of RAM,
    63     this option may cause swapping and significantly slow compilation.</para>
