Thread: kdelibs4-devel vrs libkde4-devel requirement in src.rpm

    Default kdelibs4-devel vrs libkde4-devel requirement in src.rpm

    trying to build from a generic src.rpm but it says
    kdelibs4-devel requirement not met. After Googling
    I see that openSuse calls this lib libkde4-devel.

    Why? and is there an easy way for the system to
    respond positively to the " BuildRequires:
    kde4libs-devel" command other than editing the spec
    file?

    thanks,

    pain it is - what I do is try and build the
    src.rpm to see all dependencies are met except
    for the kde4libs, then I "rpmbuild --rebuild --
    nodeps xxxx.src.rpm"

    You can also edit the .spec file but that gets
    confusing for me.

    All wrong: libkde4 is not openSUSE's port of kdelibs4. They are different things. openSUSE does not change things in the KDE naming conventions.
    So, the problem must be elsewhere. Do you have the full KDE4 and Qt development patterns installed? Please check.

    maybe you don't realize that you are asking a technical question in a
    forum which is to be used to provide comments and suggestions about
    all the forums...the only real problem with that is the folks who have
    the ability to help you may not visit this more group administration
    focused area..

    so, i would suggest you post to a 'help' group, maybe
    opensuse.org.help.application (since i _guess_ you are trying to
    install a Linux application on your 11.1, but see the fuller list below)

    before you do: i wonder if you know that it is NOT required to compile
    everything you want to install...nor is it required for you to even
    download rpm packages....most (not all, but most) common use packages
    are contained in the openSUSE repositories and therefore easily
    installed with YaST or zypper..

    read up on those, as well as compiling software at
    http://en.opensuse.org/Concepts

    then, post again in one of the *help* fora...
    opensuse.org.help.applications
    opensuse.org.help.applications.multimedia
    opensuse.org.help.hardware
    opensuse.org.help.hardware.laptop
    opensuse.org.help.install-boot-login
    opensuse.org.help.looking-for
    opensuse.org.help.network-internet
    opensuse.org.help.programming-scripting
    opensuse.org.help.programming-scripting.build-service

    or, if you wish you may log into the web side where all those and
    other fora are mirrored, see: http://forums.opensuse.org

    either way, next time you post include the name of the application you
    are trying to install..
