Upgrading KDE


I have been fighting with Red Hat Professional Workstation package manager for 8 hours now trying to get KDE to install. I want to use the new KDevelop since it supports wxwidgets.

Anyways, I cannot solve the dependency issues.

This is my command line:

[root@localhost kde_dist]# rpm -Fvh kdevelop-3.0.2-0.1.i386.rpm kdelibs-devel-3.2.1-0.1.i386.rpm qt-devel-3.3.1-0.2.i386.rpm qt-devel-3.3.1-0.2.i386.rpm qt-designer-3.3.1-0.2.i386.rpm qt-3.3.1-0.2.i386.rpm qt-MySQL-3.3.1-0.2.i386.rpm kdelibs-3.2.1-0.1.i386.rpm arts-1.2.1-0.1.i386.rpm redhat-artwork-0.93-1.i386.rpm arts-devel-1.2.1-0.1.i386.rpm kdebase-3.2.1-0.1.i386.rpm kdesdk-3.2.1-0.1.i386.rpm kdeaddons-3.2.1-0.1.i386.rpm kdebase-devel-3.2.1-0.1.i386.rpm kdesdk-3.2.1-0.1.i386.rpm kdesdk-devel-3.2.1-0.1.i386.rpm redhat-menus-0.40-1.noarch.rpm lm_sensors-2.8.1-1.i386.rpm kdemultimedia-3.2.1-0.1.i386.rpm kdepim-3.2.1-0.1.i386.rpm kdepim-devel-3.2.1-0.1.i386.rpm taglib-1.0-0.1.i386.rpm taglib-devel-1.0-0.1.i386.rpm libmusicbrainz-2.0.2-5.i386.rpm

The output is:

warning: package qt-devel = 1:3.3.1-0.2 was already added, replacing with qt-devel <= 1:3.3.1-0.2
warning: package kdesdk = 3.2.1-0.1 was already added, replacing with kdesdk <= 3.2.1-0.1
warning: redhat-menus-0.40-1.noarch.rpm: V3 DSA signature: NOKEY, key ID 4f2a6fd2
error: Failed dependencies:
libmusicbrainz.so.2 is needed by kdemultimedia-3.2.1-0.1
libtag.so.1 is needed by kdemultimedia-3.2.1-0.1

I have downloaded now 5 different packages (everything I can find) that claims to have libtag.so.1 and 2 or 3 that claim to have libmusicbrainz.so.2. However, rpm does not seem to see the file even though package is supposed to contain it.

Anyone have any ideas what is going on?

Upgrading KDE should really be easier.

yeah that is going to be the long way. I would recommend getting a program called swaret and using that to upgrade KDE

I can't even get swaret to install. I got the gzipped tar file, ungzipped and untarred it, and there is no documentation or install instructions. I untarred it in a download directory. I get the following message when I try to run it. I have a feeling I didn't install it correctly, but I can't find any info at all on what I'm supposed to do to install it.

swaret 1.6.2-1

/usr/share/swaret-1.6.2/swaret.lang.ENGLISH does not exist!

EDIT: Well, it seemed to be looking in /usr/share/... so I decided to untar from /, which basicall worked, it can find its files, but it refuses to run because I'm not using slackware, so I think svaret is out as an option. I'm using red hat prof workstation btw.

Any other ideas?

Yeah help you with swaret cause I had the same problem

First go to where you untar the file. In there should be a docs folder with that. Just move that folder to the where it is telling you it is missing. Make sure you are root!!!!! That should fix that. Also make sure you edit the /etc/swaret.conf and edit the version to current. Then you should be gtg.

Are you running slackware? It seems unwilling to run on anything else.

I have run that on Red Hat. Did you copy that file over?

Yes, it throws an error that I'm not running slackware.

libmusicbrainz.so.2 is needed by kdemultimedia-3.2.1-0.1
libtag.so.1 is needed by kdemultimedia-3.2.1-0.1

ok you have to install those Libaries. It is easier when you are not using RPM's. That is why I got rid of Red Hat and learned Slackware. Other than this I say you have to find those. I really have no other help sorry

The problem is that I have already found them, downloaded them, and put them on the command line. For some reason, rpm doesn't see them.

I've even built my own libmusicbrainz from the tar.

Nothing I do makes it recognize that the library is there.

I'm lost. I just have no idea why it's not seeing them.
