Slackware is wonderfully tolerant. Try removepkg for all the packages in the /kde directory on the DVD and then just install those 3 if it bworks great, if not just install the package it complains about and try again. If you cannot figure it out just re-install all the packages in the /kde direcory.

caveat: change the runlevel to 3 in /etc/inittab to be on the safe side.

This post was 6 years old. Of course it isn't going to work, it is based on the old KDE3, not KDE4 that is included in Slackware 14.x. I don't know if any testing has been done to find out the minimum packages required to start KDE, but feel free to experiment (but do it in a new thread).

You could figure it out yourself, here is something that I use to figure out some dependencies:

https://www.linuxquestions.org/quest...1/#post5521811

What you might want to look at is: DEPENDENCIES & listdeps.sh

Also there is sbbdep that can be found here.

Indeed. This thread is not as prolific as SICKBOY's masterful necro thread. But, it is up there.
I suspect the OP may be long gone.

I must say that I *do* find this thread interesting in that I would like to install k3b with the minimum number of KDE packages required for it to operate correctly. So rather than going through the hit and miss of installing k3b and then adding packages as needed until it works, I might just install the minimum KDE needed to operate AND k3b. Maybe.

According to Salix, you need the following dependencies for k3b.

acl,attica,attr,bzip2,dbus,eudev,expat,flac,fontconfig,freetype,gamin,gcc,gcc-g++,glib2,gst-plugins-base,gstreamer,harfbuzz,icu4c,json-c,kdelibs,libICE,libSM,libX11,libXScrnSaver,libXau,libXcursor,libXdamage,libXdmcp,libXext,libXfixes, libXft,libXi,libXpm,libXrender,libXtst,libXxf86vm,libasyncns,libcap,libdbusmenu-qt,libdrm,libdvdread,libffi,libjpeg-turbo,libkcddb,libmad,libogg,libpng,libsamplerate,libsndfile,libvorbis,libxcb,libxml2,libxshmfence,l ibxslt,mesa,orc,phonon,pulseaudio,qca,qt,soprano,sqlite,strigi,taglib,utempter,util-linux,xz,zlib

So, after a quick comparison between that and the kde/ directory, I only see kdelibs and libkcddb as KDE dependencies for k3b.

NOTE: Salix and Slackware are not the same thing, but they tend to be close enough that their dependency tree is generally accurate. Hopefully this works.

Yes, thanks a bunch, bass...when I get around to installing k3b into my new 14.2 install I'll start with those couple of KDE packages and see how things go as I believe I have the rest of those packages installed! 2 thumbs up!
