Using APT to install K3B


Hi,

I'm trying to install K3B and having problems with dependencies. Earlier today I was kindly advised to try APT.

I seem to have installed APT okay. Then following the K3B website I added a couple of lines to /etc/apt/sources.list - it now looks like this (I can't post URL's so I've doctored it a bit for this post):

rpm <URL>ayo.freshrpms.net redhat/9/i386 os updates freshrpms

rpm <URL>rpms.xcyb.org/redhat/9 i686 stable bleeding
rpm-src <URL>rpms.xcyb.org/redhat/9 i686 stable bleeding

Now from the APT HOWTO I'm not sure whether I needed to download the package first but in any case I've downloaded k3b-0.11.9-1.xcyb.rh9.i686.rpm to /usr/src/K3B

I've gone to this directory and done:

# apt-get install k3b-0.11.9-1.xcyb.rh9.i686.rpm

And I get:

Reading Package Lists... Done
Building Dependency Tree... Done
E: Couldn't find package k3b-0.11.9-1.xcyb.rh9.i686.rpm

Any ideas what I'm doing wrong? - I feel I'm missing something obvious...
Sincerely

Simeon Bamford

u need to
#apt-get update
to update your package list, then u can
#apt-get install k3b

u can also #apt-cache search k3b
and it will give u a list of k3b packages u can install
