i have done a full install of slackware 12 and upgraded the kernel to 2.6.23 from kernel.org. after that i tried to install kde4 so i downloaded the latest kde4 rc2 source through svn. but when i ran ./compile to gave a message kde4 has to be compiled with cmake, i tried to compile with cmake but compiling quits with error Qt qmake not found. but kpackage shows both cmake and qt3 installed, so i downloaded and installed qt4 nad tried compiling but again getting the same error. anybody successfully installed kde4 pls guide me how to compile kde4 as i'm very eager to have the new desktop in my system.
tried all things in the kde4 forums but no use still getting the following error
root@gopi:/media/opt/KDE/kdelibs# rm CMakeCache.txt
root@gopi:/media/opt/KDE/kdelibs# cd ..
root@gopi:/media/opt/KDE# cd kdelibs-build

Thanks for your suggession bsdunix i tried to change root's path with export command and it worked. i manage to compile and made install for kdelibs, kdepimlibs. but kdebase would not compile it gives out dependancy error "blitz not found", i tried to install blitz through slapt-get but it returned "no such package blitz" i googled for blitz and got to some blitz java like software which is not free but commertial software i got confused and tried the softpedia link for blitz java spaces 1.29 for linux and downloaded both binary and sources files. but could not find how to install that becoz it doesn't have the configure, install or make files to compile and install the sources instead it has folders with jar files. terribly confused how to install this pls tell me how to install blitz and compile kde4base.
Thanks for your link i'll give it a try and come back tonight. i really want to have kde4 in my system. i see in the sources it has to be compiled with cmake, is there any prefix to be used while compiling blitz. just give the commands to install blitz.
Thanks a lot Alien_Hominid for your help to install KDE4 in my system. i got the sources compiled today morning and will test it and comeback as soon as possible. by the way as the sources are compiled and buid for my slackware12 is it possible to make it as a slackware package so that i can avoid the compiling and making build the same in future.
I suppose KDE4 will be too young and buggy to be included in Slackware soon, knowing how Pat prefers stability, but I wonder if he could provide some packages in testing, because I would really like to move to KDE4 when it's released but I'm not too confident in compiling Qt myself.
i had finished installing kde4 but could not find how to start kde4. i tried the menu in kdm but there is no option to boot kde4. i still have kde 3.5 in my system so when i choose kde the system enters kde3.5 but not kde4. tell me how to start kde4
I'm (slowly) working on kde4 (my own project - don't expect it in next Slackware).
As of right now, you need AT LEAST the following packages not available in stock Slackware:
12. qca-2.0.0 (1.x is in Slackware)
ladspa_sdk is a build dep for liblrdf, so it might not technically be needed, but I'm leaving it for now to see how things go. So far, I've got kdelibs build script and package done (I'm just modifying Pat's script for kde3), but there's still a *long* way to go. Don't expect a result any time soon; I'm hoping to have some time over the holidays to really hit this hard, but plans often fail Even if I do finish (for some value of finish), there's no guarantee that I'll make the results available publicly -- unless I'm happy with the outcome and pretty sure they work as intended, this will likely be the last you hear of it from me
