kde 2.2.2 installation problem

I was trying to upgrade my kde to 2.2.2. but all the rpms fail in the dependency check. Can anyone tell me which packages I need to install so that I can do the upgrade?

Are you using the package manager in KDE or Gnome etc...? This seems to be a common problem with it and you'll have alot more success using the command-line to upgrade KDE.

rpm -Uvh packagenam.rpm

That's the standard command to use to upgrade an app etc...

Thanx a lot. That worked. Just for a few I had to use -i instead of -U. Command line rules....

Actually you could place all new kde rpm's in their own directory, and then in that directory do:

rpm -Fvh *.rpm

This would upgrade all currently installed kde rpm's.

On the other hand:

rpm -Uvh *.rpm

would upgrade existing rpm's and install any new rpm's not currently installed. In that case you might run into dependency errors.

And I would suggest to use RedHat network up2date utility, you just need to register at RedHat website, and all the updated packages will be delivered to you when you run the utility, it resolves any dependencies, you can schedule the updates, and so on, it is very handy if you want to stay almost up to date with your RedHat box, for instance KDE-2.2.2 has been available through up2date for a couple of month,.
