Question Upgrade to KDE 3.2 in Redhat 9


Hello all. Thanks in advance for any information you can get me.

I originally installed Redhat 9.0 last summer. I haven't had enough time to really dig into Linux but I know enough to be dangerous. I downloaded KDE 3.2 last week, though, and can't seem to get it installed. I have looked all over for a definitive installation manual and have not been able to find my answer.

If any of you could help me out, I would very much appreciate it. I downloaded all the KDE files from kde.org into a single folder:

[root@localhost KDE3.2]# ls
arts-1.2.0-0.1.i386.rpm
arts-devel-1.2.0-0.1.i386.rpm
kdeaccessibility-3.2.0-0.1.i386.rpm
kdeaddons-3.2.0-0.1.i386.rpm

quanta-3.2.0-0.1.i386.rpm
quanta-devel-3.2.0-0.1.i386.rpm
redhat-artwork-0.90-0.1.i386.rpm


When I type rpm -Uvh *.rpm I get the following error:

error: Failed dependencies:
libdb_cxx-4.1.so is needed by kdeaddons-3.2.0-0.1
libsensors.so.2 is needed by kdebase-3.2.0-0.1
libsmbclient.so.0 is needed by kdebase-3.2.0-0.1

libpq.so.3 is needed by qt-PostgreSQL-3.2.3-0.2
libqassistantclient.so.1 is needed by (installed) PyQt-3.5-5


Do I need to set a different path? If so, can you tell me how to do that? Do I need to download each of these dependencies?

Again, I appreciate the help.

Haven't done 3.2 but a Basic KDE 3.1.4 install!
Requires:
Code:
KDE Specific:
arts-1.1.4-0.9x.1.i386.rpm           kdemultimedia-3.1.4-0.9x.1.i386.rpm
arts-devel-1.1.4-0.9x.1.i386.rpm     kdemultimedia-devel-3.1.4-0.9x.1.i386.rpm
kdebase-3.1.4-0.9x.1.i386.rpm        qt-3.1.2-0.9x.2.i386.rpm
kdebase-devel-3.1.4-0.9x.1.i386.rpm  qt-designer-3.1.2-0.9x.2.i386.rpm
kdelibs-3.1.4-0.9x.1.i386.rpm        qt-devel-3.1.2-0.9x.2.i386.rpm
kdelibs-devel-3.1.4-0.9x.1.i386.rpm

Extra:
libmad-0.15.0b-2.fr
id3lib-devel-3.8.3-5.fr.i386.rpm
[/Code]

So maybe don't try to build everything at once. Start with base and libs and just add what you need as you need it

ie:
libsensors.so.2 is needed by kdebase-3.2.0-0.1
libsmbclient.so.0 is needed by kdebase-3.2.0-0.1

Just might work


Have Fun,
alar

You should give the --nodeps option to install all the rpms at one go. I did it that way, & it worked just fine. Simply make sure u install all the rpms in the package when doing so, b'cus later it may cause problems in case u miss out an essential rpm (since some dependency might be present).

So your command should look like this:

Code:
rpm -Uvh --nodeps *.rpm
hope that helps.

Thanks both of you but it's still not working. When I do this with the --nodeps option, the installation fails when trying to build db4.

I was doing a lot of updates yesterday and found a lot of libraries so I'll continue to do that until I have met all the dependencies.

I appreciate the help.

I get exactly the same error that these are missing:

libdb_cxx-4.1.so behövs av kdeaddons-3.2.0-0.1
libsensors.so.2 behövs av kdebase-3.2.0-0.1
libsmbclient.so.0 behövs av kdebase-3.2.0-0.1
libieee1284.so.3 behövs av kdegraphics-3.2.0-0.1
libiw.so.26 behövs av kdenetwork-3.2.0-0.1
libdb-4.1.so behövs av kdesdk-3.2.0-0.1
libdb-4.1.so behövs av kdevelop-3.0.0-0.1
libqassistantclient.so.1 behövs av (installerat) PyQt-3.5-5

and i upgraded all my packages i have on my red hat 9 with kde 3.1 system but i still get the errors i allso tried the --nodeps thing but than it said there was a conflict between kdelibs-3.2.0-0.1 and koffice-1.2.1-7

anyone else know what to do?

Why you would want to add libdb_cxx-4.1.so to install KDE is beyond me
Part of: The Berkeley DB database library for C.

What is it you are going to ask your desktop to do?!?
Makes me smile

I shouldn't tease. But laughing is fun. No, I don't think you need all of
those packages to have a good install of KDE. It may seem easier to say
give me everything, but if you're going to go and have to satisfy dependencies
for the Berkeley DB database library for C, you may ask yourself,
do I really need it?

Cheers,
alar

No disrespect for the fine projects that have come out of Berkeley or
for the ones that no doubt will continue to rock the computing world.

Neither of us WANTS the library above. KDE is REQUIRING the library when we do the command rpm -Uvh *.rpm. You did read the message, right?

When I do the rpm -Uvh *.rpm command, the process stops because it's missing dependencies. Instead of coming in here and "laughing", how about offering a possible solution. I admit I'm a newbie but if you aren't going to post a helpful suggestion, why post at all?

Thank you to the rest of you for trying to help.

Glad it helped you, Sirius.

I have tried that before, though, and I receive the following error:

[root@localhost KDE3.2]# rpm -Uvh --nodeps *.rpm

Right now I'm hoping to do this installation using Apt/Synaptic. I have yet to get an update that includes KDE 3.2, though.

Believe me, if I can finally get Synaptic to update my system to KDE 3.2, my first post will be right here...

This is absolutely unbelievable. I was finally able to get Synaptic to see the KDE 3.2 file but when I try to upgrade them, I get the following error:

Failed to fetch ftp://apt.kde-redhat.org/apt/kde-red....rh90.i386.rpm
Size mismatch

Failed to fetch ftp://apt.kde-redhat.org/apt/kde-red....rh90.i386.rpm
Size mismatch

Since it can't update kdelibs, it won't update anything to KDE 3.2. This CAN'T be this f**king difficult.

Whhpssh, sorry, got no clue about those conflicts...i'm a newbie myself and my linux knowledge is fairly limited. Haven't used the Synaptic thing so can't say much about that either.

I recently upgraded from RH8 to RH9 and am yet to update KDE to v3.2...hope i don't run into the same problem as u did.

let us know if u succeed - best of luck.

Thanks ups. I'll be sure to post an update if I can get it to work.

There are a LOT of things I really like about Linux. Installation procedures would NOT be included in that list. You would think, since I downloaded all the KDE 3.2 RPMs that I would be able to install from my download folder but that was what I originally tried and it gave me multiple dependency issues.

Now, after messing around with this for a week, I'm getting this error when I try to upgrade using Synaptic:


While preparing for installation:

file /usr/share/mimelnk/application/vnd.sun.xml.calc.desktop from install of kdelibs-3.2.0-0.fdr.4.rh90 conflicts with file from package openoffice-1.0.2-4
file /usr/share/mimelnk/application/vnd.sun.xml.draw.desktop from install of kdelibs-3.2.0-0.fdr.4.rh90 conflicts with file from package openoffice-1.0.2-4
file /usr/share/mimelnk/application/vnd.sun.xml.impress.desktop from install of kdelibs-3.2.0-0.fdr.4.rh90 conflicts with file from package openoffice-1.0.2-4
file /usr/share/mimelnk/application/vnd.sun.xml.writer.desktop from install of kdelibs-3.2.0-0.fdr.4.rh90 conflicts with file from package openoffice-1.0.2-4

The good news is, when I finally get this installed, I think I can honestly promote myself from newbie to experienced newbie...



The bad news is, as frustrating as it has been to upgrade this, I don't know if I even want to mess with Linux anymore. I enjoy a challenge but I don't enjoy beating my head against a wall for five days.

sorry for the delayed reply...

well, really sad it isn't working for u as easily. well, i got another suggestion, had seen it in some local publication, and it referred to KDE 3.1.1 and RHL 8.0. It might work, just take a shot. u simply need to install the following files in this order:

Code:
# rpm -Uvh qt-*.rpm --force --nodeps
# rpm -Uvh arts-*.rpm --force --nodeps
now install the all the remaining packages:
Code:
# rpm -Uvh quanta-*.rpm --force --nodeps
# rpm -Uvh kde-*.rpm --force --nodeps
continue for all the remaining packages

see if that works...
