Question installing yast2


Hello there.

I'm using suse 7.3 but i insttalled kde3. kde3 needs qt3 so i got rid of my qt2 and installed qt3. Now some older programes don't work because they rely on qt2. But that does not realy matter since i did'nt use those programes that much. But what is a bit of a problem is that yast2 does not work any more either. Does any one know how to install yast2 for qt3. I have looked on the suse web site and there are lots of rpm's dealing with yast2. Which one's do i need ?

I did'nt download kde3, it came with the c't magezine. By the way, I installed KDE3 by compiling the source, it's the way i always install new software.

I have ben looking at some doc's and it seems that you don't need to get rid of qt2. Have a look at http://developer.kde.org/build/build2ver.html

He there, thanks for sorting this out for me. But i think i will install the newest version of all the software instead of intalling qt2 next to qt3. My primary concern is yast2. You said yuo installed KDE3 by using suserpm's. Perhaps thats what i should have done to. yast2 probebly comes with these rpm's. I did not know this.

When you install the rpm's from suse you get kde3 installed and kde2 is not deleted.You do have to add kde3 to xdm or kdm or whatever you use.
In your place i would rather try to get qt2 running again and see if things work ok then.
I had kde3 installed for a brief period only because of trouble with crashes - didn't have much luck with Suse rpm's.

He there, yes i think i will install qt2 after all. It's strange that kde3 did'nt work for you, I did'nt have any problems what so ever, except for yast2 ofcourse.

Yes,but you compiled it from source.I used Suserpm's.Always had trouble with Suserpm's - mozilla and galeon didn't work; compiled it from source.The list goes on.Use debian now - everything works;a wonder has happened!!!
