installing KDE 3.2
 
I have a Slackware 9.1 system with kernel 2.6.1 and KDE 3.1 and I want to install the new KDE 3.2. I have all the packages I need but I don't know how to install it. I installed programs before but them weren't so many as the packages that make the KDE 3.2. So I have all from Qt 3.3.0 to KDevelop 3.0.0.
Could you give me some help to install it!

Thanks!

If you downlaoded slackware packages from slackware-current (STRONGLY SUGGESTED)

Put them in a single directory, cd into that directory and:
Code:

upgradepkg *.tgz

I actually went into blackbox and uninstalled the kde* packages, arts, qt, and quanta; then I went into the directory I downloaded the 3.2 packages to and fired up pkgtool, told it to install the packages in the current directory.

I have the sources from a CHIP local magazine and they are .tar.bz2 files. I converted them into .tgz but it doesn't work. This is an excerpt from the error message:

Code:

Could you help me install from .tar.bz2 files!

Thanks!

Sources
 
Those files are most likely the source code for KDE, which would have to be compiled. You want the precompiled Slackware packages, available in slackware-current.

Check out the list of mirrors at http://slackware.com/getslack/

(The main site ftp.slackware.com is rather slow)

Oh, and when you do have the correct files, as it would seem you do not currently have KDE installed, you should install them with 'upgradepkg --install-new *.tgz'.

or you could use swaret to update the kde packages to KDE3.2, just be sure to set the version for swaret to current

I removed all the KDE packages and start installing the KDE 3.2 from the sources but I canít compile kdebase. I should metion that I compiled the source code this way:

make -f Makefile.cvs
./configure
make

I receive this error code:

Code:

/usr/local/kde/bin/dcopidlng ./dcop.h > dcop.kidl || ( rm -f dcop.kidl ; false )
/usr/local/kde/bin/dcopidlng: line 1: kde-config: command not found
Can't open perl script "/dcopidlng/kalyptus": No such file or directory
make[3]: *** [dcop.kidl] Error 1
make[3]: Leaving directory `/root/Linux/kdebase-3.2.0/konqueror/keditbookmarks'

make[2]: Leaving directory `/root/Linux/kdebase-3.2.0/konqueror'

make[1]: Leaving directory `/root/Linux/kdebase-3.2.0'
make: *** [all] Error 2
root@localhost:~/Linux/kdebase-3.2.0#

Could you help me fix this?

Thanks!
