k3b install


I got the tar for k3b, and did the ./configure a couple of times. I keep getting some error about .... I forget... something kde header ... use a different prefix or something...

As per the INSTALL file you should do ./cofigure --prefix=`kde-config --prefix`

I tried that, but no go, it still said try a different prefix. I did it again with --prefix=/usr/. Didn't work. I'm not sure what to type for prefix.

Anyways, I got pissed and googled install k3b, and found some instructions for using apt to install it. I added the repository to my sources.list file that was specified in the instructions, and tried:

apt-get install k3b

It found k3b, but it tells me some stupid dependency in uninstallable: libsamplerate.so.0

This is talking about FC 1 by the way. I remember installling k3b with apt when I had RH 9, and it installed without complaint.

Hi snafu,
providing the exact error message would have been very helpful. However, if you want to install from rpm anyways, try some of the following suggestions:
1) update your rpm database: apt-get update
2) add repositories (namely the freshrpms ones are great) and run apt-get update. This will give you many more rpms to try.
Good luck,

thanks. After adding the repository that has apt (I think it was the xcyb repository) I did do an apt-get update. Then apt-get install k3b. It does its thing and then displays that libsamplerate.so.0 is an uninstallable dependency.

I don't know why but I seem not to be having much luck with apt now that I have FC 1. I am still pretty much a linux noob, but I had good luck with apt when I was using RH 9. As I am writing this (on a win2k machine), I am reinstalling RH 9 over FC 1 on my other machine. Guess I'll just stick with what works for me.
