Exactly what kind of voodoo did you have to do to get hydrogen working?

I looked at the web page and i notice it uses QT3(I am assuming were
talking the drum machine program Hydrogen BTW), I don't know if this
is significant but I thought KDE used QT4, maybe some interlibrary
warfare is going on....

I also know that some updates to X are available, these might solve
your problem if you can get them installed.
