how to install kde on debian sid

Hello to all!

I've a problem: I've installed Debian Sid and XFree 4.3pre1v1. i would install kde 3.2 using these repository

deb h*tp:// ./
deb h*tp:// ./

but when I write apt-get install kde then it doesn't download anything 'cause it tells me kde depends from another package that won't be installed. Why? there's another mode to install kde?

many tnx


PS: sorry for the * in the links but I have less than 5 posts

Did you try apt-get install kdebase first? Then if you get error about other dependent files, then apt-get those.

Here's a Link for a search I did on this forum for Debian & KDE, it may help you out.

Well I suggest you do following:
apt-get install kdebase x-window-system-core

This should be enough to get you started :-)
