Ilya, the fact is that by causality/coincidence the project trinity
and some rpm windows-like distributions use the same "prefix" (/opt
/opt/kde3 in redhat or suse), and therefore, by any
causality/coincidence have a match/compatibility, but trinity never
was compatible with applications preinstalled or precompiled unless
rebuild against trinity desktop/libs.
