Question getting devel packages


I'm trying to compile/install the program kdenlive, and it needs "kdelibs-devel" (I have an old version)

On the kde website, I don't see "libkde-devel"!

There are no rpm packages for the distro I'm going to use (SUSE 9.2 and slackware 10.0) though I might update to newer versions in the next few weeks.

Are *-devel packages just source files and documentation?

Does anybody know how to install that package from a source package? (like from the package kdelibs-3.5.5.tar.bz2)

a -devel rpm is source code headers and other parts of the original package that are equired in order to compile otehr code which uses the given program. normally an RPM only contains the compiled code that is executed, whether it's a library or a program. that's fine to just use it, but to compile other thigns and mess about with it, the -devel stuff comes in.

sorry for the double post...I didn't know how to delete the post when I posted it in the wrong place (Linux - Desktop)

Is there a way that I can delete my posts?
You can delete this thread anyway.

You are asking about a source, not a source package.

Decompress/untar the source and read the ReadMe.

It should tell you what you want to know.

haha...I wonder how many people compile kde
This kdelibs tar.bz2 isn't an ordinary package!

Anyway, someone said this:
Quote:
if you install compiled source code packages and install with "make install" all files including -devel files are installed.
I saw around 700 *.h files in an "include" directory in the kdelibs source file. So I guess copying these to /usr/include/<something> would be the same as installing a -devel package

On Suse, you need to install the kdelibs3-devel package. Its available on the Suse discs, so you can install it using YAST. I don't think you need kdelibs devel on Slack since it does not normally split binary and devel packages.

ha. hahaha! The problem is that I need kdelibs >= 3.4.
there's only version 3.3 for SUSE 9.2

I need kdelibs-devel to compile kdenlive:
http://kdenlive.sourceforge.net/wiki...ng_from_source

I installed it on my knoppix live cd with apt-get, but it took more than an hour to finish!

I might install knoppix on my hard drive, but it's a total mess now:|
(e.g. there are 14 GB's free space at the end, but I can't create any partitions there.)
I actually have 3 hard drives...
