problems in installing kde 3.21 missing lib

hello dudes
like two days ago i was back to slack and i ve install it as minimalistic as i could , i did not install
kde , and gnome i ve kept fluxbox as window manager , i wanted to start the slackware current from scratch without upgrading
so installed the new mozilla bla bla and swaret all u know that s easy
using the swaret --install kde it fetched the kde
and installed it when it was checking the deps
wow it was a big list of deps i did not remember them but almost each components of kde had a missing lib(it failed to get kdedevelop but it has nothing to do with it , i thought to say it just in case )

so the slackware mirrors doesn't have them , so i know i can fetch them from rpms and stuff but i don''t think that most of u had this problem cause u know what u rdoing
anyway i did as if i did not read the missing libs
xwmconfig kde as default
and logout from x and logging back
kdeinit not found check installation ,
does anybody knows the mistakes i ve mde
thanks for ur help

Swaret should fix the deps for you when you download KDE. Just tell it to download it again and answer 'A' when it asks you about other packages like xfree86-4.4.4.tgz.

-Hope this helps.
