Do I have to update XFree86?

Has anyone here got JuK to work on Mandrake 9.1?

I'm keen to try out Juk, a music jukebox app that I've heard is very good.

I have juk-1.1-2tex.i586.rpm and when I
# rpm -i juk-1.1-2tex.i586.rpm
it I'm told that:
kdelibs >= 3.1.2 is needed by juk-1.1-2tex

If I then
# rpm -i kdelibs-3.1.4-1.20031119.1ark.i586.rpm
I get
error: failed dependencies:
qt >= 3.0.3 is needed by kdelibs-3.1.4-1.20031119.1ark
cups-libs >= 1.1.12 is needed by kdelibs-3.1.4-1.20031119.1ark is needed by kdelibs-3.1.4-1.20031119.1ark is needed by kdelibs-3.1.4-1.20031119.1ark is needed by kdelibs-3.1.4-1.20031119.1ark

Now, this page seems to tell me that is part of libxfree86-4.3-30mdk.i586.rpm, but if I
# rpm -i libxfree86-4.3-30mdk.i586.rpm
I get told:
error: failed dependencies:
XFree86 < 4.3-24mdk conflicts with libxfree86-4.3-30mdk

This implies to me that I need to update XFree86 to use JuK on Mandy 9.1. Updating XFree86 is intimidating to think about. Is that the best thing to do?

I got juk working in the end, although it is silent, it does run. :/

Since KDE 3.2, juk has been part of kde-multimedia. If you
haven't got Juk installed, check your KDE version first. You may need to
upgrade KDE.

To update KDE:
At the easy urpmi page, you will find two
mirrors of texstar.
Choose one of them and add it with the urpmi.addmedia-command like this for
Mandrake 9.1:

urpmi.addmedia texstar

Or you can try this mirror:

urpmi.addmedia texstar with

Both of these mirrors are unreachable sometimes. If you don't reach one of
the mirror, try the other. You can remove a mirror with:
urpmi.removemedia texstar
and then you can try to add the other mirror instead. If you will try to
add both sources, you can make up a unike name to the second source.
Example textar2:
urpmi.addmedia texstar2 with

Then you can upgrade kde like this:
urpmi kdebase

Or you can do all available upgrades:

urpmi --auto-select

Sometimes you would like to downloadd the file again, to get a
fresh list of the packages out there:

urpmi.update texstar

Or you can update all of your sources:

urpmi.update -a

Then you can do 'urpmi --autoselect'

KDE should then be updated for juk. try

#urpmi juk

You can run Juk without KDE running, as long as it is installed. e.g. you can run it in IceWM, as long as there is a KDE installation on the PC so that it can access the files/libararies. Juk might start a little slow though, as it will need to initialise various KDE things in the background (dcop, kbuildsyscoca, and others) before Juk can show.
