kde header problem


I added 3 sites to my repositories for suse 10.2 and I am trying to install kstars. I am running ./configure and added the dependencies from yast like c compiler and X required for the program until I get this error:

in the prefix, you've chosen, are no KDE headers installed. This will fail.

I searched through the yast repositories and found nothing for it and searched the net and found this:

kdelibs3-devel-3.5.4-19.i586.rpm for suse 10.2.

Now because of that rpm, I have 21 extra dependecnies to take care of first.

My question is, did I pick the right rpm for this? Do I really have to go through all that depencencies crap to install a program?

Thanks for the help

the short answer is yes. In order to develop a kde program, you must have the kde development libraries, and all the development libraries that it depends on.

That's why I don't like developing with K. They use the 'everything but the kitchen sink' philosophy of making a desktop.

I don't think you are entirely correct in your observation. If you install only the kdelibs devel packages, then you are not really installing all of the kde developement libraries. I suspect the extra dependencies are libraries, programs and other packages required for development and not necessarily kde related packages.

So reddazz, Will I need to install other dependencies required to install kdelibs3-devel-3.5.4-19.i586.rpm to take care of the kde header problem? Just want to make sure before I go through depencency hell. Thanks

Why would you go through dependency hell. Just install the kdelibs3-devel package using YAST and all dependencies will be automatically resolved. If you were using rpm at the command line, then you would need to manually install all the required dependencies before installing kdelibs3-devel, but there is not need for such hard work.

Thanks for the reply reddazz, I went to yast and couldn't figure out how to install kdelibs3-devel-3.5.4-19.i586.rpm that I downloaded to the hard drive, I could only see the source repositories. And of course the rpm is not in the list. Is there a way for yast to install software from the hard drive? Thanks

Just search in yast software management tool for kde and you will see kdelibs3-devel in the list. Select it for installation and all you should be good to go.
