Thread: KDE 4.1 / 11.0 / x86_64

  1. #1

    Default KDE 4.1 / 11.0 / x86_64

    I'm using KDE 4.1rc on my i586 laptop, and wanted to install it on my x86_64 desktop. Unfortunately, the x86_64 repository does not seem to be as well maintained as the i586 and there are numerous missing dependencies when using the DEFAULT 1-click file. I noticed the files seem to be somewhat older than the i586 equivalents.

    Is this normal for the x86_64 repos? Is is difficult to test x86_64?

    Thanks

    The 11.1alpha1 LiveCDs are dated the same

    Both repos range 18 to 24 July.

    Give them a day or so & they should be fine

    There is usually a simple work thru on dependancy issues, just check carefully what they are and the options available. You could always post them here. Yast enables you to save the issues to a file which you can then copy here.

    I'll keep an eye on it and retry. The repositories were revised overnight, but the issue list is even longer. Today, it's trying to install some i586 kde 4.1 packages, and thus require i586 packages that conflict with already installed x86_64 packages.

    Thanks for the conflict list tip. Unfortunately it is far too long (32k) to post.

    That's odd. I use x86_64 and the only dependency issue I got while updating within the past few days was ktorrent needing an older version of kde4-base or something. My repos include KDE4:Factory: Desktop, KDE4:Factory:Community and KDE4:Factory:Extra-Apps - not sure if that makes a difference.

    Index of /repositories/KDE:/KDE4:/Community/openSUSE_11.0_KDE4_Factory_Desktop
    Index of /repositories/KDE:/KDE4:/Factory:/Desktop/openSUSE_11.0
    Index of /repositories/KDE:/KDE4:/Factory:/Extra-Apps/openSUSE_11.0

    these are the 3 repo's for 4.1

    check what you have, disable any others different to these.

    The list may look long but it's probably easier than you think

    A tip is to use the option upgrade all unconditionally
    click cancel and do the same in the next repo and the next, though you may not have any marked in one of them.

    Then check again

    If you still have errors. Just eread carefully what it says, there is usually an indication as to where the issue lies.
    Anyway, you can try some options and see how it responds, sometimes that helps you see things better. Nothing actuall gets done at this point. So you can always just exit and discard changes, and try again.

    I'm not near the machine now but I think the root problem was kdepimlibs in x86_64 is at version 12.8 and in i586 was at 12.9. For some reason the 12.8 build wasn't acceptable and it tried to go with the i586 version. There were other issues, but those looked fixable.

    who came up with the naming convention for "community" - it's counter intuitive to the rest of the repos, is this the new standard?

    Good question. It did cause some mixed up penguins last week when it changed!

    I was able to install KDE 4.1 tonight by manually adding individual packages from YaST. Everything seems to work properly, some nice fixes over the rc.

    The 1-click installer is still broken; it reported numerous conflicts and missing dependencies (some of which made no sense).

    I was using the correct repositories.
