I wonder if anyone can help me please, i am novice to suse linux. I am trying to install KOPETE when i do: ./configure

I get:

HI abisko00

I installed the qt3-devel package (thank you for your suggesstion), now i get this error after doing ./configure:

n the prefix, you've chosen, are no KDE headers installed. This will fail.
So, check this please and use another prefix!

any ideas?

Many thanks

You could try again with ./configure prefix=/opt/kde3

same error (in the prefix, you've chosen, are no KDE headers installed. This will fail.

)

I think i am going to dump kopete and go for SIM instead.

Many thanks for your help

You need to install the kde development packages (kdelibs-devel).

Sorry, I should have seen that the KDE headers where missing too. In general, if something like headers are missing, you need to install the corresponding devel package.

You can also try to install the kopete-rpm by guru. Add his repository to your YaST sources:

Change Source of Installation->Add->FTP
server: ftp.gwdg.de
directory: pub/linux/misc/suser-guru/rpm/9.1 (change version to yours)

And install via YaST->Software->Install and Remove Software

EDIT: Just found out that kopete is part of the kdenetwork3-InstantMessenger package (no need to add another installation source)

That's the way it goes if you compile yourself. A lot of devel packages and libraries need to be installed

Have a try with libjpeg, jpeg and/or gd, gd-devel (not sure, but one or more of those are probably missing).

dolphans1,

Installing libjpeg-devel will fix the below error...

/usr/bin/sed: can't read /usr/lib/libjpeg.la: No such file or directory
libtool: link: `/usr/lib/libjpeg.la' is not a valid libtool archive

Which I'm assuming is what prestoj8 did.
