Problems Upgrading to KDE 3.1 with qt

Distro: RH9

Hi people,

I've been trying to upgrade to KDE 3.1 for a while now, but I'm having a few problems. This what I got when first trying to install it:

[root@localhost KDE]# rpm -Uvh *
error: Failed dependencies:
qt >= 1:3.1.2 is needed by kdeedu-3.1.4-0.9x.1
qt >= 1:3.1.2 is needed by kdelibs-3.1.4-0.9x.1
qt-devel >= 1:3.1.2 is needed by kdelibs-devel-3.1.4-0.9x.1
timidity++ is needed by kdemultimedia-3.1.4-0.9x.1
qt >= 1:3.1.2 is needed by kdenetwork-3.1.4-0.9x.1
Alright, so I went to download the newest version of the qt package, which I did.

But, when I try to install it now, I get the same error.

Can someone help me out here?

Enter this command:
rpm -qi qt3
to check that the Qt version is in fact >= 3.1.2

If you installed Qt by compiling it then the rpm database did not get updated. You could be in the situation that you have Qt 3.1.2 installed but the rpm data base still thinks that you are using an earlier version. If that is the case then you can use checkinstall to create an rpm from your compiled source:

and then install qt as a rpm.

Another possibility is to install KDE using the --nodeps feature of rpm. However KDE has so many dependencies besides Qt that --nodeps will probably get you into a mess.
