KDE upgrade on Red Hat Enterprise Server 4


Hi,

RHEL4 comes with KDE 3.3.1 and I need to upgrade KDE to KDE 3.3.2 or later in order for "Kiosk Admin Tool" to work. We have support for RHEL4 ONLY.

When I try to install 3.3.2 or later package I get dependencies error. I tried up2date for RHEL4 but did not work. I even tried "apt-get update"...it gaved a "failed dependencies" error...

My question is ..is it possible to upgrade KDE 3.3.1 to 3.3.2 and above? If possible, how to I do an upgrade?

Many Thanks.

up2date and apt-get work with the packages found in the repositories that you told them to use. The various dependencies that you need are not in those repositories. You could try to find a Red Hat repository which contains a later version of KDE and its dependencies.

Where did you get KDE 3.3.2? You can probably get its dependencies from the same place. Then you can install all of those packages using the same method that you used to attempt to install KDE 3.3.2.

In addition to up2date and apt-get you should consider using the rpm command or compiling from source.
