      I have Mandrake 8.2 and i've downloaded some packs for KDE3, i don't
      know if i'm missing one, please tell me what rpm's are required to
      install KDE3, cause i have a problem when i try to install it, first
      i try to install the KDE3base but it says that i need to insert the
      CD-3 from MDK because it needs libqt2*.rpm,
      i inserted the cd and installed the libqt2*.rpm then when i try to
      install the KDE3base again it says that it needs lib*,* a lot of
      files, more than 30, i think that those files were supposed to be
      installed with the CD a few minutes ago but no.

      Please give the instructions to install KDE3 over MDK8.2 running
      KDE2.2.2.

      Now i cant work with KDE2.2.2 cause some files are missing.

      Please, I really need help!

        It differs per distribution, and I'm running RH 7.2, but for me it was a
        relatively painless process:

        1) uninstall every kde2 RPM (not a big deal for me, since i don't use kde2)
        2) grab every kde3 RPM in the i386 folder on the kde.org site
        3) install every single one of those RPMs

        what libraries is it complaining about?

          I have KDE3.0 Running on my Mandrake 8.2 systems right now. It was a
          simple installation. I downloaded the Mandrake 8.2 Compiled versions
          of KDE 3 from

          http://download.us.kde.org/pub/kde/stable/3.0/Mandrake/8.2/RPMS/i586/

          I grabbed all of the RPM's that did not have the -devel- wording in
          them. Also make sure to get the lib packages! Then I opened up the
          Mandrake software manager. Gave it a new source ('/tmp' is where I
          downloaded the packages) to get packages from and then I
          clicked "Install". It asked for the First CD, Second CD, and the
          Third CD of the download edition of Mandrake 8.2. But after it was
          done I simply logged out of the current KDE session and then logged
          in with the new KDE3 as my window manager. That was all that was
          needed.

          Also check out here...

          http://www.linux-mandrake.com/en/mdk-kde3.0.php3

          This is the official Mandrake site for it!

          Enjoy,

            The official how-to from Mandrake. It is quite simple.
            Thanks
            flipsoft

            Also I downloaded every package except for the ones with the -devel-
            wording in them.

                ftp://ftp.ibiblio.org/pub/Linux/distributions/contrib/texstar/Mandrake-8.2-i686/

                and download the mosfet-liquid-0.9.4-2mdk.i686.rpm package for KDE3.
                This is by far the coolest theme ever. I think people should package
                this sucker as the default KDE3 theme.

                Ok, Here is the bass ackwards method I used to install KDE3 on a pristine RH7.1 installation (very painfull) first off... rpm -ev `rpm -qa|grep ^kde` get rid

                  Ok, Here is the bass ackwards method I used to install KDE3 on a pristine
                  RH7.1 installation (very painfull)

                  first off...
                  rpm -ev `rpm -qa|grep ^kde`
                  get rid of all the 'base' kde packages...

                  download all the redhat rpms for kde3 (minus the i8n files you don't need)

                  now... the qt3 rpm is CORRUPTED :( it isn't good, the qt3-mt.so.3 file is
                  bad.

                  so download the qt3 src rpm and compile it (a good 1-2 hour process on my
                  I8.1)
                  remove all the qt rpms you find using rpm -qa|grep ^qt

                  it will bitch and moan about broken dependencies, use your best judgment.
                  you will also have to download many of the redhat 7.2 and 7.2 update rpms...

                  in terms of the order... I forgot :( but it is easy to figure out by using
                  alternating rpm -Uvh *rpm looking at the missing dependencies and
                  installing those, then re-running rpm -Uvh *rpm

                  if you have any other questions, feel free to ask me, I'll be glad to help on
                  an individual basis...

                        I tried upgrading to KDE 3.0, and I have screwed something up... When I tried to rpm -Uvh *.rpm I get this message: qt-Xt-3.0.3-5.i386.rpm: read manifest
                        Message 11 of 20 , May 3 7:51 AM
                          I tried upgrading to KDE 3.0, and I have screwed something up...

                          When I tried to 'rpm -Uvh *.rpm' I get this message:
                          qt-Xt-3.0.3-5.i386.rpm: read manifest failed: Success

                          and it stops.
                          Did you have this problem, too? I'm running basically a stock RH 7.2 with
                          the 2.4.7 kernel. Will I need to compile the qt from source?

                          Thanks for any advice,

                          Brian

                              ... like I said... the redhat binary rpm for qt3.3 is no good... you have to manually rebuild the src rpm using rpm --rebuild it s something to do overnight

                                you have to manually rebuild the src rpm using rpm --rebuild

                                it's something to do overnight etc :)
                                but I did that and it works perfectly!
                                and it's more 'form-fitting' to your machine.

                                      Now my KDE3 is running after i reinstalled MDK 8.2

                                      Still have a problem with the startup, the KPersonalizer is running
                                      on every startup even if I do what says on the readme, to put some
                                      lines in the config.

                                      Also somtimes when i make a click on home and Konqueror is opened, I
                                      go to mnt directory and it Konqueror just disappear and i have to
                                      open it again.

                                      But i can live with this, by far KDE3 is better than XP or GNOME.
