KDE 3.0 to KDE 3.1


Hallo,

i tried to update KDE 3.0 to KDE 3.1 i tried it with rpmīs but Yast wasnīt able to accept the directory where the packages had been( so it could have solved problems like one package needs another one by itself). I only could open and install one by another leading to the problem that sometimes i got the message another package was needed so a few times i could solve it by installing the other package first but some like libkateso.... i havnīt found yet even not on the disk with packages for KDE 3.1 (Linux User Disk - packages for SuSE 8.1 & SuSE 8.0) and after it installed just half of it a reboot leeds just to a shell and canīt start x anymore.
So i decided tor try it with the sources of KDE 3.1.2 . I unpacked first the KDElibs 3.1.2 and started with (first time SuSE 8.0 because this Distro has every package installed from the DVD like all devels and so, i guessed it might needed, the SuSE 8.1 is just a two disc Distro an i donīt know yet whether it has also all libs it would need to compile by itself)
./ configure
but it showed just the message
bad interpreter : Permission denied ???
iīm root and i donīt know what to do anymore?
may someone help me thanks a lot, because i already had two questions in another forum but i did the within the post of another one already stated maybe tht was wrong so i try it now by creating an own direct post..
Please donīt laugh

Thanks for any help

Try upgrading KDE via apt for SuSE.
I have a very good experience with it.

You can download it from here:
ftp.gwdg.de/pub/linux/misc/apt4rpm/suse/extra/8.1/

Apt

Thanks, but the problem is, that i canīt get in the internet with that other Computer where i have this troubles with. Which means i need to do update with sources or rpm-packages from CD īs. I may try to download apt with this computer an put the files on fdd but i guess even with apt i need a connection with the internet or deals it with the sources an packages i have locally stored?

I hope you can connect to the internet with the troubling pc (check with ifconfig and ping).

Even if you can only login in save mode (without X) you can still check and get the files e.g. using w3m or wget.

Try:
wget
ftp.gwdg.de/pub/linux/misc/apt4rpm/suse/extra/8.1/
apt-0.5.5cnc6-rb3.i386.rpm
apt-libs-0.5.5cnc6-rb3.i386.rpm
lua-5.0-rb3.i386.rpm

Internet connection

Hallo aherm,

the problem in not the "troubling" pc to get an internet connection the Problem are instead the stairs between the PC and the phone-line. Means if i tke down the PC an the whole stuff downstairs i can use the phone-line by modem. But i do not really want to bring it up and down so iīm searching for other solutions for upggrading packages.

Thanks anyway for your help.

P.S.: Downstairs is the windows PC iīm writing now on.
