Question Problem installing new programs... KDE problem?


Hello,

I just downloaded the Mandriva LE 2005, after getting the system installed, I wanted to add some more programs that I wanted to use. Namely * showimg-0.9.4-1 * and * ksmoothdock-3.5.1* . But I could get neither of them configure and compile correctly. During ./configure , it says :

....
....
checking for Qt... libraries /usr/lib/qt3//lib, headers /usr/lib/qt3//include using -mt
checking for moc... /usr/lib/qt3//bin/moc
checking for uic... /usr/lib/qt3//bin/uic
checking whether uic supports -L ... yes
checking whether uic supports -nounload ... yes
checking if Qt needs -ljpeg... no
checking for rpath... yes

checking for KDE... configure: error:
in the prefix, you've chosen, are no KDE headers installed. This will fail.
So, check this please and use another prefix!
[root@localhost showimg-0.9.4-1]#
....

This is not the first time this problem has occurred. There was some problem compiling new packages in Mandrake 10.1 too. I selected any individual package that I could put a tick during the system installation, just i suspect that it still has not installed all the lib* that are needed.

But in 10.0, they both compiled and worked fine. So I finally get this 2 packages installed in Mandrake official 10.0 and then upgrade the system to Mandriva 10.2 , but i do not want to do this every time i install an extra package....

Sounds like you need to install the KDE-devel packages.

ALso, whay are you compiling those apps? They are available as Mdk rpms for LE 2005...

thanks. i will try to install the kde-devel , but wouldn't it be installed by default? i don't see any option in the installation wizard that i can choose to install this.

I tried to innstall the software from rpm package, but it didn't work neither.

[root@localhost main]$ ls lib*kde*dev*.*

libkdetoys1-devel-3.3.2-6mdk.i586.rpm

..... this is the only kde devel package i can find on the DVD..... does Mandriva exclude all the kde-devel packages ??? ......

Mandriva excludes most of the devel packages from its free download version (to make it fit on 3 CDs ).Visit http://easyurpmi.zarb.org/ to set up your repository mirrors. If you follow the directions on that site, you can access the entire suite of non-proprietary software Mandriva has available, including all the devel packages. For LE2005, choose the "2005" sources. Make sure to include mirrors for "main", "updates", "contrib", and "plf" (both free and non-free). It's almost like buying the PowerPack Edition.

You need to install libkdecore4-devel. Do as root,
Code:
#urpmi libkdecore4-devel

As Padma said just install the programs using the install programs thingo in the MCC. Now that you've setup your URPMI sources they should all be there. You're asking for a whole lot of unecessary pain and trouble by trying to compile them from source.

You sources may need updating, do as root
Code:
#urpmi.update -a
#urpmi libkdecore4-devel

examining MD5SUM file
examining synthesis file [/var/lib/urpmi/synthesis.hdlist.jpackage.cz]
examining synthesis file [/var/lib/urpmi/synthesis.hdlist.Installation DVD (cdrom1).cz]
examining MD5SUM file
examining synthesis file [/var/lib/urpmi/synthesis.hdlist.contrib.cz]
examining MD5SUM file
examining synthesis file [/var/lib/urpmi/synthesis.hdlist.plf-nonfree.cz]
retrieving source hdlist (or synthesis) of "updates"...
...retrieving done
examining synthesis file [/var/lib/urpmi/synthesis.hdlist.updates.cz]
reconfiguring urpmi for media "main"
examining MD5SUM file
examining synthesis file [/var/lib/urpmi/synthesis.hdlist.main.cz]
examining MD5SUM file
examining synthesis file [/var/lib/urpmi/synthesis.hdlist.plf-free.cz]
after that i run
Code:
urpmi libkdecore4-devel
and i still get
Code:
[root@localhost chaosbringer]# urpmi libkdecore4-devel
Some package requested cannot be installed:
libkdecore4-3.3.2-124.2.102mdk.i586 (due to unsatisfied menu-xdg[>= 0.6-5mdk])
libkdecore4-devel-3.3.2-124.2.102mdk.i586 (due to missing libkdecore4-3.3.2-124.2.102mdk.i586)
Continue? (Y/n)

The mirror that you are using does not seem to have all the right packages. Try running
Code:
#urpmi --auto-select --auto
Once thats done done try the commands above. If it still doesn't work, then you need to look for a newer menus-xdg 0.6.x package from sites like rpm.pbone.net and install it.

It could be better to remove all your sources and set them up from scratch using a different mirror.
