Problem in installing amaroK 1.4.3 on RHEL 4


HI,
What is the best way to install amaroK 1.4.3 in RHEL 4 ?
I downloaded amaroK 1.4.3 rpm from rpm.pbone.net. But it needs KDE >= 3.5.4 . How can I upgrade RHEL KDE version to KDE 3.5.4 ? Where can I find required packages? Please help !!!

First visit Dag Wieers site and install both the rpmforge-release and yum packages;

http://dag.wieers.com/home-made/apt/FAQ.php#B
http://dag.wieers.com/packages/yum/

Next visit the kde-redhat project site; http://kde-redhat.sourceforge.net/ and install the gpg-pubkey and kde.repo according to the directions, then type something like;

yum upgrade kdebase kdelibs arts amarok

Hi Lenard,

After following your instructions when run
"yum install amarok" I get the following error report:

[root@146 sabu]# yum install amarok

Why is this and what is the solution ?

Try one of the kde repo files here instead, you have three to try;

http://apt.kde-redhat.org/apt/kde-redhat/redhat/

Update: after switching to the redhat-release rpm file for RHEL4, the kde.repo file works for me. I'm running the RHEL5Beta2 so I had to change redhat-release version to use/check the repo files.

Download and install the old fashioned way, for example;
Code:
rpm -Uvh http://apt.kde-redhat.org/apt/kde-redhat/redhat/4WS/i386/RPMS.stable/amarok-1.4.4-0.1.el4.i386.rpm
Or visit: http://apt.kde-redhat.org/apt/kde-redhat/redhat/4WS/

Hi Lenard,
Installing "the old fashioned way" worked. I manually downloaded
every package and dependancies updating KDE and installing amarok.
Though it was boring there was no other way to get the packages I needed.
I feel RHEL should ship yum with it. I miss it when using RHEL.
