Unhappy CentOS 5.3: Error compiling kdepimlibs


I just installed CentOS 5.3 which came with KDE 3.5. I am trying to download and install the latest KDE 4.x version and I am getting the following error while trying to build kdepimlibs.

I also downloaded and installed the latest version of boost_1_39_0 but still get the error above.

Please help.

Why are you building it from source ? for fun ?
if not ( FOR FUN ) and "because i want to" then i would use the kde4 centOS repo then run

" yum groupupdate kde-desktop "

http://wiki.centos.org/AdditionalResources/Repositories
and from that help page
http://kde-redhat.sourceforge.net/
Quote:
*

kde-redhat.sf.net - This repository provides more recent (bleeding-edge) versions of KDE for use on Red Hat based systems. This repository has a decent reputation and a sizable support community.

Note: - This will update MANY packages to newer versions than Base CentOS ships, including all of KDE, QT, samba, etc. A CentOS team member commented at revision 25: "This seems to work OK on all machines I have tried but your machine will be far from CentOS with many changes to the [Base] CentOS Operating System." Information concerning setup is available here: http://kde-redhat.sourceforge.net/

I certainly am not doing it for fun since I have been struggling with it for over a week. More like I did not know of any other way. So I downloaded the kdesvn tool and started to build the latest KDE.

That being said, please pardon my ignorance John, but what do you mean by "use the kde4 centOS repo"? Where do I get this from? At this moment, all I have is all the kde4 sources downloaded by kdesvn. I suppose my original question should have been "what is the best way to get the latest KDE release on CentOS?".

I will be waiting for more enlightenment from you.

Thanks,
SV

it is on this page
http://kde-redhat.sourceforge.net/
Quote:
yum

Download

* Fedora: kde.repo
* RedHat Enterprise (and compatibles: CentOS, Scientific Linux, etc...) kde.repo

and drop it in /etc/yum.repos.d/

Note to x86_64 users: You may have to enable both x86_64 and i386 repos.

To install, a simple
yum groupupdate kde-desktop
yum update
ought to fetch and install the packages for you.

To keep up to date, you can periodically run
yum update
on your system as well.
install ( save and move it to /etc/yum.repo.d ) the centOS kde.repo

just like the instructions say. and the prerequisite EPEL repo ( http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/EPEL )

Thanks for all your help John. I was able to successfully follow the instructions for updating my kde-desktop. One question though, the latest version of KDE appears to be 4.3 with the Plasma Desktop shell. My machine still shows 3.5 after all the updates. Any ideas how I can acquire or enable the 4.3 version on my desktop?

Thanks again,
SV

I don't have kde 4 installed on CentOS 5.3 so...
I do need a stable Cent OS

as for turning on 4.3 ?
a guess try renaming the ".kde" folder ( in your home folder ) to " .kde-old " and rebooting
this will force the system to remake the folder .

I guess what I am asking is the quickest way for me to install KDE 4.3 on my box. I do not mind building it myself but it doesn't seem to be working. I keep running into compilation issues. If I could download some kind of RPMS and install it, that would be the best options.

I do appreciate your time responding to my questions and would like to request some pointers in the right direction. Essentially, what would be my options here given my requirements?

Thanks,
SV
