KDM Theme manager error


Well, i installed KDM Theme manager 0.9.1 from .rpm, because it was needed for some themes for KDM, and, surprise surprise : when i try to launch it from control panel, i get :
Quote:
There was an error loading the module.

The diagnostics is:
/opt/kde3/lib/kde3/kcm_kdmtheme.so: undefined symbol: _ZN9KListView18setShadeSortColumnEb
Possible reasons:
An error occurred during your last KDE upgrade leaving an orphaned control module
You have old third party modules lying around.
Check these points carefully and try to remove the module mentioned in the error message. If this fails, consider contacting your distributor or packager.
Now i have no idea what this error is talking about, i didn't do ant kde upgrades, not that i remember, and don't know how to handle modules and whatever.So please, if anyone into this problem, I'd appreciate any help....10x in advance.NoLimitz.

"i didn't do ant kde upgrades, not that i remember"

KDM is part of KDE.

"i installed KDM Theme manager 0.9.1 from .rpm, because it was needed for some themes for KDM, and, surprise surprise : when i try to launch it from control panel, i get . . ."

Was the rpm compiled to run on SuSE 9.3? If not you should back the rpm out and either install a rpm for SuSE or else compile the KDM theme manager from a tarball.

As an alternative:
The theme manager is a GUI used to edit /etc/opt/kde3/share/apps/kdm/themes. You could try editing /etc/opt/kde3/share/apps/kdm/themes using a text editor.

10x about the path to find kdm...as for the rpm, i'll try to find one for suse, because most(95%) of the apps i have as source code do NOT compile and give me errors.dunno why...like autoconf and automake missing although i have the newest ver, unexplainable errors.don't know what's happening around my comp.maybe the gcc compiler broke??it all seems all right in YaST.
