KDE 3.2 on Red Hat 9?


How should I go about getting KDE 3.2 onto my Red Hat 9 system?

- use RPMs intended for some other system, e.g. SuSe?

- use Konfigure?

- build from sources?

- wait for a Red Hat distribution?

Thanks for any advice...

If you are used to RPM stuff then just wait a while for rpms for RH9.
You can also build using sources at any time
Its just a matter of preference. RPM is faster way. Building from souces allows more optimization stuff, but much slower.
Wait for newer version of distribution? Well another version of Fedora will soon be ready...but are you gonna wait for this new exiting stuff?

Thank you for your reply... I am used to RPM stuff, but I am usure what packages would be suitable. Can I use a package indended for Fedora on my Red Hat 9 system? A package intended for SuSe?

Do you think there will ever be a Red Hat 9 package?

Not sure about SuSe since I've never used their distribution, but for Fedora being built from RH9 base it should be fine. Another thing is RH9... there shoulbe be some packages after a while since many people still use RH9. I usually prefer compiling software myself so I rarely do rpm stuff even at my other RH9 installation, so I may be wrong. Just make sure you make install clean.. not messed up with old kde

I got the Fedora packages and tried to install them but found they depend on later versions of two system libraries (libsensors.so.2 was one, the other was libsmbclient I think).

I take this to mean I should wait for Red Hat 9 packages or build from source. (?)

libsensors.so.2 - is from package 'lm_sensors' which is used for hardware monitoring.
libsmbclient - is from package 'libsmbclient' which is used for accessing SMB(Samba) servers.
Just update those packages and install your KDE rpms. It would be safest way to install KDE
You may also need to update your qt stuff.

And of course you can build KDE from sources at any time. Though you may need the same libraries as above, but its up to you. So far as I know those libraries are not fatal for KDE installation.

Thanks again for keeping up with this thread. The only source I found for libsensors.so.2 was in a Mandrake package; I couldn't even tell what processor it was for. It seemed a bit of a stretch to throw it at my Red Hat i686 system.

Go to ftp://apt.kde-redhat.org/apt/kde-redhat/9/RPMS.unstable

The University of Nebraska at Lincoln keeps up with the kde rpm packages...
They should have them ready soon for stable release..
As you see the packages currently reside in the unstable directory, I'm
assuming until they get the dependancies straigtened out...

Use apt-get or synaptic and use the following for your sources:
http://apt.kde-redhat.org/apt/sources.list

Cheers
