KDE problem

Hi folks.

I'm using RedHat 9.0. Yesterday I've tried to install a new version of KDE... I got problems while installing "kdelibs-3.1..."-package. It said I need "qt > 3.1.2". Without kdelibs I couldnt install other components. So now I have KDE in my login-manager, and I even can start it. But the menu is empty (the one u get when u click on the button in the left corner) and I just don't know how to fix it. Ive tried to install the KDE which was on the CD, that didn't help.

Please tell me how to remove KDE, or install qt 3.1.2 (I've tried, but it was too hard - I'm a newbee ) I've heard there is an utility called atp-get. Where can I get it for RedHat 9?

Apt-get works, but personally I prefer yum. It should be on one of the RedHat cds. Search the rpm directory on each cd until you find it and then type:

rpm -ivh yum-xxx.rpm

Replace the xxx with yum's version number. In the commnad above the "i" stands for install, the "v" stands for verbose, and the "h" stands for hash (a sort of progress meter). Then you can install kde-libs with the command:

yum install kde-libs

Yum will download and install all the necessary dependencies before installing kde-libs.

Hope this helps.
