KDE 3.5.x packages - order of certain packs. first?


Hi ya, I have KDE 3.4.2, and I'm obviously trying to upgrade to 3.5.5. I have downlaoded all of the packages of KDE from a local ftp. Each and every .tar.bz2 files. BTW, what are those MP5 files? I think there are about two of them in the main directory. Necessary? I read somewhere that one could run them and they'll check and compare to ensure your downloads matched up with the list. I did not that do that. Anyway, back to what I was saying -- I downloaded every .tar.bz2 file of KDE 3.5.5 and untared them all into their own folder. I know there are a few packages that must be preinstalled for KDE to work, such as a QT version, some languages, and apache maybe? My question is which of these KDE packs. should I install first? Does it matter? Or can I just simply go down the list of .tar.bz2s...? Thanks!!

I think you're talking about *.md5 files that are file to check that you downloaded the correct files and that they're not corrupted.

Type in:

md5sum -c <name of file>.md5

to make sure there's no problem with your downloaded files.

By the way, packages are the *.tgz files, not the tar.bz2 files which are the source files (to be compiled).

tgz packages are located in directories:

<your ftp mirror>/slackware-11.0/slackware/kde
<your ftp mirror>/slackware-11.0/slackware/kdei


If you want to install a full KDE environment (i.e. all Kde packages), it doesn't matter the order of installation. Just type in:

cd <your download directory>
installpkg *.tgz

as root. Of course make sure your download directory contains only KDE packages.

If you want to install only a minimal KDE environment, install the following packages:

- qt
- kdelibs
- kdebase
- any kde-i18n-* suitable for your locale

I don't think the order matters but following this sequence doesn't hurt.

But you won't get that much as far as features are concerned. So you'll want to install the following:

- amarok (audio player)
- koffice (office suite) and its koffice-l10n-* (localization)
- kdemultimedia
- kdegames (for fun)
and so on.

You'll find further information on kde packages here:

Extention *.tgz? But mine are all *.tar.gz2. Do I have to convert them? Here's where I downloaded them all from: ftp://ftp.gtlib.cc.gatech.edu/pub/sl....0/source/kde/

I have Slack 10.2 and kernel 3.4.2, btw.

I keep getting errors when I do the make command, something about recursiveness..

it seems that you have downloaded the sources when you were looking for the binaries...

download whatever you need and then removepkg/installpkg/upgradepkg

I only install the following packages: qt, kdelibs & kdebase

Oh, okay. I found the .tgz files. Thanks a bunch. So those are the three more important packages to install in order to get the full potential from kde? What about the bindings or the addons for software or all the other extra plugins for things to work correctly?

with those packages you will have the minimum kde desktop working...if you want kmail you would have to install the KDE PIM module, KDE Graphics will add some image software and so on...

I've built working kde-3.5.5 packages on 11.0, and the complete sources are here. If you're on a 10.2 system, you'll need to change the SLKCFLAGS values to use "-mcpu" instead of "-mtune"

To robw810:

Here's a snippet of kdevelop.SlackBuild from your website:

Code:
echo "Building kdevelop-$VERSION.tar.bz2..."
#tar xjvf $CWD/kdevelop-$VERSION.tar.bz2 || exit 1
cd kdevelop-$VERSION || exit 1
chown -R root:root .
chmod -R u+rw,go+r-w,a-s .

#CFLAGS=$CPUOPT \
#CXXFLAGS=$CPUOPT \
#./configure \
#  --prefix=/opt/kde \
#  --with-xinerama \
#  --disable-debug \
#  --program-prefix="" \
#  --program-suffix="" \
#  --build=$TARGET-slackware-linux \
#  --host=$TARGET-slackware-linux \
#  || exit 1

make $NUMJOBS || exit 1
make install DESTDIR=$PKG
The file was last modified Dec. 20, while most others have been untouched since Dec. 18. Is kdevelop not worth building, or what's up?

OOPS! For whatever reason, kdevelop didn't like the threaded make on the first build, so I commented out the portions of the script that would cause it to completely start over and ran it again with plain "make" so that it would finish and then make the package. In case someone noticed the same with the new koffice sources, it was the same situation. Sorry about that - fixed now...
