Angry KDE problem with upgrade


I recently upgraded my machine to KDE 3.2, and now several KDE apps that worked in KDE 3.1.4 now no longer work. The apps that I have noticed so far are kmuddy, and k3b. Whenever I try to run them, they just return a segmentation fault. I tried reinstalling kmuddy from the RPM, but it still produces the same results whenever I try to run it. I tried reinstalling it from the sources, but it won't get past the configure, with the error:

checking if UIC has KDE plugins available... configure: error: not found - you need to install kdelibs first.


But I have kdelibs and kdelibs-devel both installed. I haven't tried reinstalling superkaramba or k3b, but I think all three apps have the same problem. I'm running fedora core 1. Can anyone help me?

I think I may have more than one version of QT installed (3.1 and 3.2), but the rpm database doesn't show anything. It may have been installed by a tarball. Where can I check to see if it is installed?

Thanks in advance....

When you did the upgrade it should have required you to uninstall k3b which you obviously then have to re-install again afterwards.
When you upgrade, kdelibs/arts/qt3 all have to be installed first, then ideally kdebase3, then everything else in any order you want. If you didn't do it in that sequence it may possibly be a cause of your problems.

I re-installed them, but it didn't help. Here's how I did it:
(sorry it is a little messy, it didn't come out exactly right, but you can get the idea...)

Yes, I'm running Fedora Core 1. I had to install redhat-artwork, because of a dependency with kdelibs.

So, that's what I did, but it didn't make any difference. I suppose I should mention that I did uninstall all of the KDE packages before installing them again.


Thanks for any help!
