You can build your own KDE:

KDE Light is actually a mix of KDesktop, openbox, and fbpanel. Kdesktop renders the icons and desktop, openbox handles the window management, and fbpanel gives a lightweight launcher for people who need that sort of thing.

Pocket Linux created it when they were looking for a lightweight alternative to KDE while retaining the look (Seems to me that Icewm would be a perfectly fine alternative, as would EDE).

AFAIK, they never released a package which you could compile it yourself.
Maybe you could download pocketlinux (or easys as it is now called) and try it.

I've seen easys mentioned elsewhere (DW?) and finally got around to trying it. Well, to start, it's a misnomer like so many distros. The upfront selections would be a complete mystery to a neophyte, but shouldn't pose any difficulties to our readers. The installation failed several times to lock-up, but eventually got there. The default partitioning is curious; the bootloader is LILO.
The desktop is spartan. Not sure what these guys are trying to achieve? At least I was able to set up my static IP network, unlike some dumb offerings. But it crashed, stuck up some bizarre resolution back at the prompt, etc., etc.

Yes, folks - one more lemon to overlook, I'm afraid.......

Anyone seeking a basic distro for older systems could do a lot worse than Absolute, provided you can handle a minimal amount of shuffling with the installer and LILO. Compact it ain't, but fast & Slack it is.

Jason I've built a kde base that allows users to add kde programs with puppy it will be included in my next Living Water release and than Fire Hyrdrant, It still uses Rox-filer, and JWM (I might change it to IceWM)
