Installing K3B

I'm running Redhat 9. I've tried to install K3B. I had a choice of downloads:


...and I chose:


(I'm running it on a Dell "hyperthreading" P4)

On the command line as root I did:

# rpm -i k3b-0.11.9-1.xcyb.rh9.i386.rpm

And I got:

warning: k3b-0.11.9-1.xcyb.rh9.i386.rpm: V3 DSA signature: NOKEY, key ID 87e600b8
error: Failed dependencies:
flac is needed by k3b-0.11.9-1.xcyb
id3lib is needed by k3b-0.11.9-1.xcyb is needed by k3b-0.11.9-1.xcyb is needed by k3b-0.11.9-1.xcyb is needed by k3b-0.11.9-1.xcyb
libmad is needed by k3b-0.11.9-1.xcyb is needed by k3b-0.11.9-1.xcyb

The K3B website says this (which I don't understand):

The packages are signed with this key: (...a URL) . To import it use:
wget (...a URL)
rpm --import xcyborg.asc

What am I doing wrong?

Re: Installing K3B

The missing key is not your problem; the failed dependencies are. You can disregard the key warning. You have to locate the files reported as missing, chances are they are included in some rpm on your rh9 source CD. Install them, and it should work.

I do believe though that the i686 package should be ok as well (?).

I've just installed succesfully k3b (k3b-0.11.17-1.xcyb.rh9.i686.rpm)
on RedHat 9 using yum.
In order to satisfy the dependencies I needed libmad-0.15.1-0.fdr.0.b.rh90.i386.rpm
(available on

The hard work was done by yum, installing :
flac 1.1.0-0.fdr.16.rh90.i386.rpm
id3lib 3.8.3-0.fdr.9.rh90.i386.rpm

If you have yum installed, add
name=Red Hat Linux 9 ( xcyborg / stable )

name=Red Hat Linux 9 ( xcyborg / bleeding )
to yum's conf file (/etc/yum.conf)

and then run
yum install k3b
If not, you should download the packages above and install them before installing yum.
