OK I seem to have updated my KDE libs, by using a RPM. It worked OK.

Now, the ./configure stops at QT: I need 3.1+

I downloaded and installed it, but it installed to /usr/lib/qt-3.1 and not /usr/lib/qt3.1 so I don't think it detects it. I can pass the qt stuff to the ./configure in the command line, but it still wont work.

The config.log file lists the following files as missing.

qglobal.h
qapplication.h
qcursor.h
qstylefactory.h
private/qucomextra_p.h

I have manually searched in my directories and can not find these files whatsoever. How can I get them? I checked and I have both qt2 and qt3.1 installed.

these are header files... from a devel package, possibly qa-devel-3.1 ???

goto google.com/linux, and search "privides qglabal.h"


or possibly rpmfind.net and search qglobal.h

have fun

Thanks qwijibow, I didn't know I could do that.

I downloaded,
- libqt3-3.1.2-14mdk.i586.rpm
- libqt3-devel-3.1.2-14mdk.i586.rpm
- qt3-common-3.1.2-14mdk.i586.rpm

But I can't install them. Error message example:
Code:
# rpm -ivh libqt3-3.1.2-14mdk.i586.rpm
error: failed dependencies:
        qt3-common = 3.1.2-14mdk is needed by libqt3-3.1.2-14mdk
        libXft.so.2   is needed by libqt3-3.1.2-14mdk
        libaudio.so.2   is needed by libqt3-3.1.2-14mdk
        libc.so.6(GLIBC_2.3)   is needed by libqt3-3.1.2-14mdk
        libfontconfig.so.1   is needed by libqt3-3.1.2-14mdk
        libgcc_s.so.1   is needed by libqt3-3.1.2-14mdk
        libgcc_s.so.1(GLIBC_2.0)   is needed by libqt3-3.1.2-14mdk
        libpng.so.3   is needed by libqt3-3.1.2-14mdk
        libpthread.so.0(GLIBC_2.3.2)   is needed by libqt3-3.1.2-14mdk
        libstdc++.so.5   is needed by libqt3-3.1.2-14mdk
        libstdc++.so.5(GLIBCPP_3.2)   is needed by libqt3-3.1.2-14mdk

Avitar, this post is not directed toward you.

Don't you need to recompile the kernel to update glibc? Is Avitar going to be able to understand this breifly?

Avitar, I believe Red Hat 9 comes with KDE 3. I thought I should let you know.

I give up

OK OK I give up...

Everyone keeps telling me that if I would only install Mandrake 9.whatever, that all of my problems will be solved and I can install anything I want to.

OK fine, I will install MDK9 *IF*... someone can tell me how to do that without losing my settings (Internet connection, soundcard drivers, files, settings, etc). Because it took months to get my system configured.

If there is a way to do this, then I will definitely upgrade.

Thanks.

Upgrading Linux of any brand requires recompiling the kernel. You either do a new fresh install, or consider the possiblity of compiling the kernel. This will require some good skill in scripting (very basic form of programing)

use the -Uvh instead of -ivh on rpm,
since you are upgrading some packages rather than installing

WOOOOOW...
are you sure ???

i may be wrong, but im 99.999% sure upgrateing qt will NOT require a kernel upgrade !
this is just a simple case of dependency juggling.

try the Uvh, what i think is happening, is the files you are installing are trying to copy over older currently exiting files... you cant installa newer file over the top of an over file, you need to use the U option in rpm, which tells rpm that some files may already exist, and if they do, upgrade

you are very welcome,

before giving up (unless you have already installed the other distro, give the Uvh option a try, just for 5 mins, i think it will help.

faludeh:

are you loading the program by clicking an icon ??? or menue button ??
if so, open a console, and run the program from there...
you can look in the properties of the icon to find the executable name...

open the command console and type
executable_program_name

this way, you should be able to see any error messages.

what do these error messages say ????

Hi qwijibow! I just loaded it from the command line and it loaded up just fine.. Would you by any chance know why there is a problem loading from icon and then no problem when loading from command line? Can I fix something so that it will load from icon again?

Thanks!

VERY STRANGE !!!!

i dont use KDE or GNOME anymore, or whatever you are using but i do remember in the icon properties a tickbox saying run inside terminal or somthing like that.

maybe this program NEEDS a terminal to output things ???

try clicking this run inside terminal or run inside console or whatever the option is, i cant remember.

what program are you loading ? it IS a graphical program isnt it ?

anyway, yes, i think you can get this loading from icon if you find the correct properties setting.

He needs to upgrade parts of Linux that involve Glib and Glibc. Glib and Glibc is intertwined with the kernel. When installed, the kernel is compiled to work with these systems so programs like X can run. When upgrading Glib or Glibc, it can not be done under the X system. In some cases, he needs to upgrade the Kernel to work with the libraries of glib and glibc. He needs to upgrade the kernel to meet the requirements of Glibc.

Also, when working with GLIB I do not believe using Uvh will not work, because "ALL" dependancies of glib for the prior version must be removed.
