KDevelop 3 on Red Hat 9


Hi, I've been trying to install the latest version of KDevelop (kdevelop.org) in order to have wxWindows support but I'm getting some problems here. The version I currently have installed is 2.1.

I downloaded the rpm for 3.0 or 3.1 (can't remember) but when Ii tried installing it, I get an error that some dependency (libGLcore.so.1) is missing (or somethin similar to that). I installed it (kdevelop) using the --nodeps option but when I type kdevelop to run it, version 2.1 starts. I downloaded this rpm (libGLcore) from a site that I got on this forum and tried installing kdevelop 3 again (using the -ihv and -Uhv options), but it's telling me that I already have it installed.

Any suggestions?

Well, without the library it needs, it will never run properly. Next, you have to find where it installed the binary, and if it is in your path. Just type 'kde' in a shell and press space. If you get something like 'kdevelop3.0', then it is installed. Try to find out if the required library is present, and if not, install it.

I did install the library, but I keep getting the error saying that I already have kdevelop installed.

I tried typing 'kde' in a shell but I'm getting
Quote:
bash: kde: command not found
Also, 'kdevelop --version' spits out this info
Quote:
Qt: 3.1.1
KDE: 3.1-12 Red Hat
KDevelop: 2.1.5

Well, I said to type "kde" in a shell and then pressing <TAB>. This will give all the commands starting with kde in your path. Also, if you have installed libraries, you also have to check whether their path is in /etc/ld.so.conf. If not, you have to add it and then run 'ldconfig' as root.

Oh ok, these are the results I got
Quote:
kdebugdialog kdeinit kdeprintfax kdesud
kde-build kdeinit_shutdown kdesktop kdesu_stub
kde-config kdeinit_wrapper kdesktop_lock kdevdlg2ui
kded kdekillall kdessh kdevelop
kdedoc kdelnk2desktop.py kdestroy kdevelop-2.1.5
kdeeject kdepasswd kdesu
I'm seeing kdevelop-2.1.5 there and not 3.0/3.1.....dunno what to do from here

Also, when I ran ldconfig I got this message...
Quote:
ldconfig: File /usr/lib/libGLcore.so.1 is too small, not checked.

So, it seems that you have not installed kdevelop 3 correctly. Ok, so now we have to start from scratch. Your library file seems to have some problem with it. Did you install it as an rpm or did you install it from source?

And, when I went to the kdevelop home page, I saw that kdevelop 3.0 is in alpha stage. Unless you know what you are doing, I advise you not to install alpha packages, as they will affect the stability of your system.

I installed it as an rpm. Also the kdevelop I installed was via an rpm.
