go to:

http://www.slackware.com/pb/?vers=sl...urrent&set=kde

download all files.

from the directory you saved the files to run:

Code:
upgradepkg *tgz
this will upgrade you to 3.2

I had the same problem, I did what you said:

Quote:
code:--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
removepkg kde*
installpkg kde*
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
But I get the same error again, that it can't find kdeinit. If I can't get KDE 3.2.2 working, how do I get the previous version (The one that came with Slackware 9.1) back on...??

From the posts on the forum I've read so far about 3.2.2, I think I'll wait until 3.2.3 or another higher version before I try installing it. But right now I've got nothing, just a terminal window...

After you do removepkg kde*.

Insert the second Slackware installation disk into the CD drive.

As root mount it (mount /dev/cdrom /mnt/cdrom).

Change directory into /mnt/cdrom (cd /mnt/cdrom).

List the contents(ls), you should see various directories including one labelled slackware, change to this directory (cd slackware).

If you list the contents now (ls) you should see the following:

Code:
CHECKSUMS.md5  CHECKSUMS.md5.asc  FILE_LIST  MANIFEST.bz2  gnome/  kde/  kdei/
Change into the kde directory (cd kde).

Now install all of the packages (installpkg *.tgz).

This should install all of the necessary packages.

If it still doesn't work then you must have fucked some other part of the installation. But if you let us know maybe we can solve it.

Cheers

To compile kde from source, the very first source pkg to install is arts-3.2.2.......Here is the installation order for kde core pkgs when compiling from source:
  • 1. arts
    2. kdelibs
    3. kdebase
Of course, you must also have xfree-4.4.0 (needed for KDE-3.2.x) and the latest version of QT (I thinks it's 3.3.2) before installing kde from source.....Look at the "KDE.SlackBuild" script file in the slackware-current/source/kde/ directory on one of the Slackware ftp mirrors for the build order used by Slackware....

NOTE: Comiling all the KDE pkgs from source will take a long time.....I just did it on my AMD Athlon 900 box with 256MB RAM, and it took over 30 hours to build them (and that's excluding the kdesdk pkg)


As for installing the "official" Slackware pkgs, put the latest version of these pkgs in the same directory:
  • xfree86-4.4.0
    qt-3.3.2
    arts-1.2.2
    quanta-3.2.2
    koffice-1.3.1
    kdevelop-3.0.3
    kde*-3.2.2
If you don't want to install _all_ the above pkgs, just put the ones you want to install in the same directory..............Then get the script I posted here and put it in the same directory as the pkgs to upgrade the whole set automatically......If you've already removed all the above kde pkgs, just replace the 'upgradepkg' command in the script with 'installpkg'....

------------------------------
PS: If I remember correctly, there was a problem with with kdebase not having all the startup scripts needed for the kdm session manager..........but it was fixed, so make sure you have kdebase-3.2.2-i486.2.tgz...
