Installing KDE3.1.3 on stable system using the "stable" mirror at download.kde.org


Hi..

I have trouble installing the KDE3.1.3 on my brand new Debian woody 3.0r1 system..

I've added this line to the sources-list file:
deb http:||download.kde.org|stable|3.1.3|Debian stable main
(can't post links yet - that's why I use | instead of /)


But why can't I install the things..

Trying an apt-get install kdebase:

When I try installing fx. the kdegraphics package this happens:

echelon:/# apt-get install kdegraphics --simulate

Some packages could not be installed. This may mean that you have
requested an impossible situation or if you are using the unstable
distribution that some required packages have not yet been created
or been moved out of Incoming.

Since you only requested a single operation it is extremely likely that
the package is simply not installable and a bug report against
that package should be filed.
The following information may help to resolve the situation:

Sorry, but the following packages have unmet dependencies:
kdegraphics: Depends: kamera (>= 4:3.1.3-0woody1) but it is not going to be installed
Depends: kcoloredit (>= 4:3.1.3-0woody1) but it is not going to be installed
Depends: kdegraphics-kfile-plugins (>= 4:3.1.3-0woody1) but it is not going to be installed
Depends: kdvi (>= 4:3.1.3-0woody1) but it is not going to be installed
Depends: kfax (>= 4:3.1.3-0woody1) but it is not going to be installed
Depends: kghostview (>= 4:3.1.3-0woody1) but it is not going to be installed
Depends: kiconedit (>= 4:3.1.3-0woody1) but it is not going to be installed
Depends: kmrml (>= 4:3.1.3-0woody1) but it is not going to be installed

Depends: kuickshow (>= 4:3.1.3-0woody1) but it is not going to be installed
Depends: kview (>= 4:3.1.3-0woody1) but it is not going to be installed
Depends: kviewshell (>= 4:3.1.3-0woody1) but it is not going to be installed
Depends: libkscan1 (>= 4:3.1.3-0woody1) but it is not going to be installed
E: Sorry, broken packages
echelon:/#
------------------------------------------------------------------------


It acts weird (in my opinion) and maybe I don't quite understand how the packaging system works, but it is added as a stable source.

I would rather use the kde.org-link instead of the unstable source! Not because of KDE but because of the GNOME2.2 I would like to be able to run too, and it seems it could give me some trouble.. But first I want to install the KDE3.1.3 from the stable kde.org mirror!



Thanks

Cant apt-get KDE3.1.3

Hi,
You might try running <apt-get update>
While it is updating the cache, you might watch for any messages to the effect :

can't stat kde org stable or something like that.

I tried the source you posted, and it did not work. You might go back to where you got the source, and make sure you copied it exactly to your /etc/apt/sources.list.
If it is correct in your sources.list, then the <apt-get update> command should help.

Hi again...

Thanks... The mirror must be broken then, if you remembered to change the "|" to "/"..

I better tell the KDE.org site that it is, cause I had it installed on another machine and the last couple of days I haven't been able to install the KDE3.1.3 on another machine and I thought I was getting crazy..

apt-get update <-- yeah, I've been running it a lot of times lately ;-)


I'll see into it..

You can check out the address at www.kde.org/download



Besides - could I just download the i386 packages from:

ftp://ftp.kde.org/pub/kde/stable/3.1.3/Debian/pool/main

and use the "dkpg -i *" to install fx. the kdebase directory first and then the kdegraphics and so on?


Thanks

Preben

Btw. when running the "apt-get update" theres a "Ign" infront of the mirror - does that mean anything. Well, of course it means something, but does it have a practical "error"-making problem?

Thanks

I only have two lines in my /etc/apt/sources.list;

deb http://security.debian.org/ stable/updates main
deb http://http.us.debian.org/debian stable main

I actually have some others, but they are commented out. Earlier, I commented out these two lines and added just your:

deb http://download.kde.org/stable/3.1.3/Debian stable main

I did <apt-get update> with JUST your source and I saw all the "cant stat whatever" messages.

I went back and uncommented my two lines, and left in your source, and did <apt-get update> again. I do not get the "can't stat whatever" messages, but I do get:

Ign http://download.kde.org stable/main Release

I am guessing that Ign stands for ignore, although I am not at all sure.
I do not believe you can apt-get KDE3.1.3 with this source.

I do believe the <dpkg -i (deb package)> will work.

I have just installed KDE 3.1.3 and I did it this way. Added the following line to my sources.list;
deb http://download.kde.org/stable/3.1.3/Debian stable main
Ran apt-get update and then did; apt-get install arts kdelibs kdebase kdegraphics kdeadmin.
The install went like a dream. After this I did apt-get install kdemultimedia.

Why don't you just do 'apt-get install kde' ?
That will install all KDE packages.

Because there doesn't exist a meta-package for KDE 3!

Maybe the meta package for KDE2.2 will work, but I don't know.

Or it could be that you didn't want to install the kdegames or something like that - it's nice being able to avoid such things, that ain't necessary!

Btw. your name sounds danish - are you a dane? I am!
