Question How can i update KDE to v3.2 for RedHat9?


Does anyone know how to update KDE to version 3.2 for RH9? There are too many RPMs such as arts, kdebase, kdelibs, qt, etc. I don't know how to install them in order.
Please tell me how. Thank you.

Hi!

it would be good to download all that RPMs and make a "rpm -Uhv *.rpm" but first you have to go in text mode with "init 3". or try "rpm -Uhv ftp://ftp.kde.org/pub/kde/stable/3.2...ra2/i386/*.rpm"
else try yum or apt.

good luck!

PS: download devels too.

apt-get is a package manager. It was originally designed for Debian, but today ported over to a hole bunch of Linux systems, as Redhat. It works like this: With one command, apt-get connects to a server, download all packages and dependencies and install the program for you auto-magically . Let's say, you want to install mplayer?

apt-get install mplayer

That's all you've to go. There's also a graphical interface for it, called synaptic. I will let you guess how to install synaptic through apt-get . Sure, not everything is perfect, and sooner or later something will go wrong. Nonetheless, it's a great tool, worthy having.

Yum is supposed to be similar, but I've never tried it myself.

Apt-get for Fedora and Redhat can be found here:

good luck!
