Yet another Red Hat 7.2 problem updating to KDE 3.0


I am having a problem updating to KDE 3.0.

I am running Red Hat 7.2.

I downloaded all 180 files from the i386 directory on ftp.kde.org.

According to the README:

Quote:
To remove the old packages and install the new ones, run:

cd /where/you/downloaded/the/KDE3/RPMS
rpm -e `rpm -qa |egrep ^kde`
rpm -Uvh *rpm
So this is where I am now:

Quote:
[root@space jwp]# rpm -e `rpm -qa |egrep ^kde`
error: removing these packages would break dependencies:

Does anyone know what the problem is?

Why don't the KDE instructions for Red Hat 7.2 work?

I never tried to install KDE, but KDE 3.0 comes with RedHat 7.3. You can download the beta iso's (SkipJack) from any RedHat mirror.

Check this out. I re-installed a totally fresh copy of Red Hat 7.2, without KDE installed at all.

Then, I downloaded all of the redhat 7.2 rpms from the ftp.kde.org.

Then, I typed the following command in the directory where I have all the rpms, and this is the result:

Quote:
root@space i386]# rpm -Uvh *rpm
error: failed dependencies:
zip is needed by ark-3.0.0-1
unzip is needed by ark-3.0.0-1
pkgconfig is needed by gphoto2-devel-2.0-2
Xconfigurator < 4.9.42-1 conflicts with hwdata-0.9-1
libfam.so.0 is needed by kde2-compat-2.2.2-1
librpm-4.0.4.so is needed by kdeadmin-3.0.0-2
librpmbuild-4.0.4.so is needed by kdeadmin-3.0.0-2
librpmdb-4.0.4.so is needed by kdeadmin-3.0.0-2
librpmio-4.0.4.so is needed by kdeadmin-3.0.0-2
lm_sensors is needed by kdebase-3.0.0-2
libsensors.so.1 is needed by kdebase-3.0.0-2
libpisock.so.4 is needed by kdepim-pilot-3.0.0-1

libodbc.so.1 is needed by qt-ODBC-3.0.3-5
libpq.so.2 is needed by qt-PostgreSQL-3.0.3-5
So, can anyone explain how to install KDE 3.0 on a Red Hat 7.2 system??

www.kde.org

Read.

Or shortcut: install 7.3 like the rest of us. It's smooth as silk. Nothing to fiddle with.

I hate it when people give me smart-ass responses like that.

I've already read www.kde.org. And I've already read the instructions for installing the Red Hat 7.2 rpms.

I followed them EXACTLY, and had the problem that I described above. Therefore, I come here looking for an answer, and find that nobody else has been able to install KDE 3.0 using the instructions that they give you:

Quote:
Recommendation: Since we have switched to building more modular KDE
packages, users of KDE 1.x or 2.x should remove the older KDE packages
and then install the new ones rather than trying to update.
Deleting the old packages will not delete settings etc. stored in the
users' home directories.

To remove the old packages and install the new ones, run:

cd /where/you/downloaded/the/KDE3/RPMS
rpm -e `rpm -qa |egrep ^kde`
rpm -Uvh *rpm
I ran that command rpm -e `rpm -qa |egrep ^kde` and got an error message about dependencies. See my original post.

All those dep error messages are the main problem with the redhat package manager, the packages that depend on kde 2x are complaining that they need the packages your removing. Try using the nodep switch if your desperate to try kde3 but don't complain if something else stops working. And make sure that the packages that qt/kde3 need are up to date.
