I've downloaded all the rpms, fulfilled all the dependencies, but when i
rpm -Uvh *.rpm all the files, it 'prepares' then gives me a long list of erros saying

file /usr/lib/* from install of * conflicts with file * of package *

if i try doing
rpm -Fvh *.rpm
it tells me i have depency errors again,
and libqt3-common

which is strange because i'm almost certain i've also installed those. I have no idea why these woud list for -Fvh and not -Uvh

any help?

using mandrake 9.0

is it just easier to wait for mandrake 9.1?

here you go

Visit the page, which offers a procedure for using apt-get to install kde 3.1 on redhat, and automatically work out all the dependencies.

Problem: Apt-get will complain about all "duplicate" entries in your rpm database. I found that using up2date to install redhat updates introduces those duplications.

For every duplication, do an rpm -q and you'll see their are duplicate entries.

I manually did an "rpm --justdb -e --nodeps" for each of them, pointing at the "older" entry. When I'd gone through the lot (I ended up having to use this procedure for *every* package up2date had touched), the procedure on the sourceforge page worked great.

I have to hand it to the kde people, for their humility. Calling this "3.1" rather than "4.0". It's such an improved desktop!
