I've installed KDE3.2 on Slackware after a recent upgrade to Kernel2.6.4 (for which I upgraded to Slackware current
packages of module-utils binutils and a few other packages).
The KDE upgrade used the LXF (Linux Format) dvd packages. I removed all kde packages (after "telinit 1" to get singel user mode) by doing something like
#removepkg `ls /var/log/packages | grep kde`
(note the back ticks, not apostrophes)
Then I uninstalled qt with removepkg. Next I installed the qt-3.3.0 from the source tarball (long compile) using the configure switches recommended on the KDE site (I think they are in the COMPILE file too? in the kdelibs package???). There was also some variables to export to the shell. To check the qt install I did just the
of the kdelibs install.
When I got it to pass without stopping and complaining about QT I just installed the precompiled packages for kdelibs, then kdebase, then all the other packages in the /dvd/Desktop/KDE3.2/Slackware/ directory.
This is where the problem comes in. One of the installed packages is an arts package. I note that kdelibs configuration says that --with-arts needs to be specified if arts is wanted, but I assume that was specified when the Slackware packages were made?
The only problem with my install (all the eye-candy looks fine and dandy!) is that sound is not working (alsaconf finds and configures my sound card and uses the via vt82xxx module). The sympoms are the message "libkcm_arts.la" is missing according to Kcontrol (the controlcentre) when I try to use the system sound applet-thingy.
Do I need to reinstall and compile my own kdelibs and/or kdebase (I think that libkcm_arts.la is actually part of kdebase)? I can't really do this easily as it takes forever compiling this stuff (well over an hour for kdelibs alone!) ... and then I might have passed the wrong configure options!!
How else can I fix it?
I can't find any packages called libkcm* except some called libkcmlaptop.
