    Installing and WM from source is a real PITA, espeically on a system designed for use with RPMs. Is there a reason you're trying to do it this way?

    Installing any window manager (WM) from source is a real pain in the ass (PITA), especially on systems designed for use with the Redhat package manager (RPM).

    Although I guess KDE is a desktop environment (DE), and not a WM.

    You should install the KDE rpm's that came with your installation disk.
