Installed packages not found


Hello everyone.
I tried installing arts-1.3.0 when it said I didn't have qt installed. So I downloaded the qt source and compiled it (succesfully). Then I tried installing arts-1.3.0 again, and again it said I didn't have qt installed.
I decided I would just use a repository with yum, so I did and added the repository to my /etc/yum.conf. This time installing arts-1.3.0 did work, though it did install qt too as a dependency...
Then I went to the kdebase source and tried compiling that, but no it couldn't find qt! I also tried through yum, but yum gave me thsi error message:

.......Unable to satisfy dependencies
Package kdebase needs /etc/X11/xdm/Xservers, this is not availeble.
Package kdebase needs /etc/X11/xdm/Xwilling, this is not availeble.

What does this mean and how can I solve it? Also, at first it said I didn't have gtk2 2.4.14 installed, which was true so I tried updating it through source (yum couldn't find it). I compiled glib-2.6.3 without a problem. Then I tried installing gtk-2.6.4, and it said I'm still using the old version! How can I solve this problem?
I'm using Fedora Core 2.

Thanks in advance. EneNL.

EDIT: Oh and yum install kdebase stopped saying I needed gtk2 after a reboot, though compiling gtk2 didn't stop telling me I was using the old version of glib.

EDIT2: Again, I'm having a problem. I compiled xine-lib-1.0 without a problem. Then I tried gxine-0.4.1.tar.gz which needs xine0lib, and it said it couldn't find it...

EDIT3: I fixed the xine problem by running /sbin/ldconfig. The other problems still remain though...

Your problems are a result of mixing source ackages and rpms. RPM doesn't know about packages compiled from source, so it's best to install any dependencies from rpm repositories using yum or apt.

Thanks, I'll do that then. And what does yum mean with this:

Package kdebase needs /etc/X11/xdm/Xservers, this is not availeble.
Package kdebase needs /etc/X11/xdm/Xwilling, this is not availeble.

He can't find them obviously, but what are they?

I really don't know that one, but I would assume that there is something wrong with the xserver packages.
