I finally decided to try upgrade KDE3 to 3.1 with apt for my laptop with
no success. Any idea of what is broken?

Aah... the "kde31-test" tree had moved to "kde3-test". Perhaps this
should be mentioned on the project web page too ;-) ?

Oops, sorry 'bout that.  In our zeal to get rh8 binaries out and reorganize
things... we didn't bother to actually *tell* anyone about the change(s),
other than updating the website info.

rh8 stuff is available via apt only, at the moment.  When things settle
down, we'll upload a snapshot to sourceforge.

No problem. Except from my disk being too small the KDE upgrade with apt
went smoothly ;-)

But now I had a little taste of what I was ranting about earlier of
installing software for linux being a hassle even with excellent tools
like apt:

"lame-libs", which is required by kdemultimedia, is totally preventing
me from upgrading Red Hat errata. The thing is, that the lame package
that is about to be upgraded has files conflicting with the lame-libs
package I have installed:

"file /usr/lib/libmp3lame.so.0.0.0 from install of lame-3.92-fr4
conflicts with file from package lame-libs-3.93.1-1".

Ok, that lame package is apparently from the freshrpms-dir  and not at
all from the Red Hat updates. The question is how do I skip "freshrpms"
stuff (_without_ having to edit sources.list) when I only want to
upgrade errata buxfixes from "updates"?

Yuck... looks like my lame and freshrpms lame packaged things differently.
I made 3 packages: lame, lame-libs, lame-devel, freshrpms just had 2: lame,
lame-devel.

OK, to fix:
apt-get install lame
Will install/upgrade both lame-libs and lame and avoid the conflict.

*Then* you can install/upgrade kde.

I'm not that good at spec-files, but would it avoid this issue (without
braking anything) if the Reguires:-field in your kdemultimedia package
did not have the package name "lame-libs" (but only the actual required
file names)?

Hmmm... I had my lame and lame-libs installed from your repository last
week (iirc).

Quote:> *Then* you can install/upgrade kde.

I was not having problems upgrading KDE this time, but I wanted to get
the rest of my system up2date and this lame-issue was holding back all
the packages from getting upgraded.

Yes I tried with the "-f"-switch and with "dist-upgrade". The only
working solution was to uninstall lame.

Good point... I changed the Requirement so it now
Requires: lame
instead, so either version will work.

1. apt-get: libkdefx reloation error: redhat 8.0 kde 3.1

Hey there,

        I've got a bit of a mess of a system. :)
Apt-get upgraded from 7.3 to 8.0...that took a little doing. I got stuff
working stably with kde 3.0.5, but want to
upgrade to 3.1 now. The packages seem to upgrade properly, but I have
trouble getting the thing to go back
into kde afterwards. Any calls to kwin, or startkde get this error:

kwin: relocation error: /usr/lib/libkdefx.so.4: undefined symbol:
_ZN12QPaintDevice13setResolutionEi

I also tried to follow the instructions given by Rex on upgrading
through apt, but to no avail.
I found that libdkefx comes from the kdelibs package. This is the output
of from my pc
for the command: rpm -qa|grep kde
lockdev-1.0.0-20
kdebase-3.1-9.0.8.0
kde-3.1-3.0.8.0
kdegraphics-3.1-1.3.8.0
kdeutils-3.1-1.3.8.0
kdeartwork-3.1-1.2.8.0
kdelibs-3.1-9.1.8.0
kdenetwork-3.1-3.0.8.0
kdesdk-gimp-3.0.5-1
kdemultimedia-3.1-2.0.8.0

If anyone could help, that'd be great!!!

Thanks,

Koby
