Description of problem:
After I upgraded my RH 7.2 to RH 8.0, kdeinit doesn't start.
I've already installed KDE 3.0.3 on my RH 7.3 from package available on KDE site
and prepared by RH, and it worked, but when I upgraded to RH 8.0, the
installation program has reinstalled the KDE 3.0.3 and, then, kdeinit didn't start.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:
Didn't try

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install RH 7.2
2. Install KDE 3.0.3 on RH 7.2 with RPM on KDE site prepared by RH
3. Upgrade to RH 8.0 and reinstall KDE 3.0.3
4. Boot PC, log in and start KDE.

Actual Results:  kdeinit doesn't start.

Expected Results:  kdeinit MUST start :)

Additional info:

Kdeinit fails with a "relocation error" on FT_Get_Next_Char

relocation error: /usr/lib/libXft.so.2: undefined symbol:

Calling ldd on kdeinit (and on almost every other kde program
installed by RH8.0) i get the following results ldd -r

It seems it's a mismatch between kde app packages and Xft
delivered with RH8.0. It's strange that some people got KDE
working on RH8.0. I tried to update manually every package again,
and I downloaded and forced upgrading of Xft from RedHat site.
But I still get the error on kdeinit.
Gnome is ok for me, and it uses Xft as well, so it seems that Xft
rpm is ok, and the problem should be in kde packages.

It's not a bug in kdelibs. It seems that the update process did not work correct
on your system.

In your case here i recommend you should uninstall all qt/kde rpms frist and after
that you should install qt/kde from RHL 8.0.

Please make sure that all qt/kde rpms should be cleanly removed before you
install the new qt/kde rpms.

I've fixed this bug!!! 
The solution is create these symbolic links: 
lrwxrwxrwx    1 root     root           29 Oct 14 11:46 
/usr/X11R6/lib/libfreetype.so -> /usr/lib/libfreetype.so.6.3.1 
lrwxrwxrwx    1 root     root           29 Oct 14 11:44 
/usr/X11R6/lib/libfreetype.so.6 -> /usr/lib/libfreetype.so.6.3.1 
lrwxrwxrwx    1 root     root           29 Oct 14 11:46 
/usr/X11R6/lib/libfreetype.so.6.0 -> /usr/lib/libfreetype.so.6.3.1
