You left out some important information. What version of Debian do you currently use? Stable, Testing, Unstable? What is the contents of /etc/apt/sources.list?

What error? Not giving us the so-called weirdness makes it next to impossible to help. Tell us the above info. and we'll point you in the right direction.

initially I have tried the traditional way...of course I have selected unstable in apt.conf.When I type to install the kde-cvs-snapshot it tells me that it depends on libqt3c102-mt , but when I try to install it from the repository it says that there is no such package but there is the package on the repository.This makes it impossible to install from the repository.So I downloaded all of them and burned the on a CD.The question is: Is there a way to install them from the CD ?

SO you want to know how to install debs from a cd? mount the cd. copy the debs to your apt repository and go with it. If the dependency is that libqt deb, search for it at apt-get.org or backports.org if packages.debian.org doesn't have it.

If the goal is to get kde3.2, you could try opendoorsoftware.com's kdecvs. They have instructions and a deb line for sources.list.

To get the version you need for the CVS you are using you should apt-get -s install libqt3c102-mt=3:3.2.1-6+as that will install the exact version (remove the -s if the output looks good to install) that you need however those packages are from the 1st of the month if you want to try the new packages that were just built last week which are the rc1 candidate then you need a new line in the sources list.



I usually use a script with all the packages I have installed then simulate the install and if it looks good then I actually install.
[code]
apt-get -s install konq-plugins=4:3.2.0-0+cvs20040123+cm libarts1=1.2.0-0+cvs20040123+cm ark=4:3.2.0-0+cvs20040123+cm kaddressbook=4:3.2.0-0+cvs20040123+cm kappfinder=4:3.2.0-0+cvs20040123+cm kate=4:3.2.0-0+cvs20040123+cm kcontrol=4:3.2.0-0+cvs20040123+cm kdeartwork-theme-desktop=4:3.2.0-0+cvs20040123+cm kdeartwork-theme-icon=4:3.2.0-0+cvs20040123+cm kdebase=4:3.2.0-0+cvs20040123+cm kdebase-bin=4:3.2.0-0+cvs20040123+cm kdebase-data=4:3.2.0-0+cvs20040123+cm kdebase-kio-plugins=4:3.2.0-0+cvs20040123+cm kdelibs=4:3.2.0-0+cvs20040123+cm kdelibs-bin=4:3.2.0-0+cvs20040123+cm kdelibs-data=4:3.2.0-0+cvs20040123+cm kdelibs4=4:3.2.0-0+cvs20040123+cm kdepim-libs=4:3.2.0-0+cvs20040123+cm kdeprint=4:3.2.0-0+cvs20040123+cm kdesktop=4:3.2.0-0+cvs20040123+cm kdewallpapers=4:3.2.0-0+cvs20040123+cm kdm=4:3.2.0-0+cvs20040123+cm kfind=4:3.2.0-0+cvs20040123+cm kget=4:3.2.0-0+cvs20040123+cm kghostview=4:3.2.0-0+cvs20040123+cm khelpcenter=4:3.2.0-0+cvs20040123+cm kicker=4:3.2.0-0+cvs20040123+cm klipper=4:3.2.0-0+cvs20040123+cm kmail=4:3.2.0-0+cvs20040123+cm kmenuedit=4:3.2.0-0+cvs20040123+cm kmix=4:3.2.0-0+cvs20040123+cm konqueror=4:3.2.0-0+cvs20040123+cm konqueror-nsplugins=4:3.2.0-0+cvs20040123+cm konsole=4:3.2.0-0+cvs20040123+cm kpager=4:3.2.0-0+cvs20040123+cm kpersonalizer=4:3.2.0-0+cvs20040123+cm ksmserver=4:3.2.0-0+cvs20040123+cm ksplash=4:3.2.0-0+cvs20040123+cm ksysguard=4:3.2.0-0+cvs20040123+cm ksysguardd=4:3.2.0-0+cvs20040123+cm ktip=4:3.2.0-0+cvs20040123+cm kuickshow=4:3.2.0-0+cvs20040123+cm kview=4:3.2.0-0+cvs20040123+cm kwin=4:3.2.0-0+cvs20040123+cm libkdenetwork2=4:3.2.0-0+cvs20040123+cm libkonq4=4:3.2.0-0+cvs20040123+cm libmimelib1=4:3.2.0-0+cvs20040123+cm xfonts-konsole=4:3.2.0-0+cvs20040123+cm libqt3c102-mt=3:3.2.3-99+cvs20040123+cm #libxslt1/unstable
[code]

You may not want to install either the kdeartwork-theme-desktop or the kdeartwork-theme-icons I forget which one that I had to watch about 5 minutes of screen scrolling by with the warnings of a --force-overwrite with dpkg to get it to install. The above would be on one line in the script if you use it I put it on the many lines and left the /code at the bottom so it would not make the screen scroll forever and the libxslt1 is commented out because I already had installed it.
