[PlanetCCRMA] changing stuff

  (Sorry for the repost if this message was delivered earlier. I'm not 
sure it was ever actually sent...)

  I have two related questions:

    1. My client wants to upgrade his KDE system in his current Planet C 
RH9. Can he do so safely (without harm to the Planet C system), and if 
so, what's the recommended way to upgrade ? He has a fast connection and 
can hypothetically do the upgrade over the wires.

    2. I'd like to check out Werner Schweer's MusScore, his WYSIWYG 
notation editor, but alas, it requires QT 3.3. Similar to question #1, 
what's the best way to go about doing that ?

  I recently added Python 2.3 to my /usr/local hierarchy, believing that 
it wouldn't cause problems, but for some reason now my system wants to 
recognize that installation as the bona fide (instead of the Planet's 
2.2). Alas, it isn't configured for Tkinter (why oh why isn't that done 
as a matter of course?), and I'm loathe to add yet another non-Planet 
package to the /usr/local tree. Fie on all dependencies ! ;-) Any 
suggestions ?

Best regards,
