Subject: Re: kdevelop
After reading (?) the URLs, I think I am in a more difficult position
I think the following two command outputs will help you help me.
debian:~# apt-get install kdelibs3
This is your real problem. kdelibs3 is for KDE2, and kdelibs4 is for KDE3,
due to upstream library sonames. I suggest you run "dpkg --purge kdelibs3
kdelibs3-data", then apt-get install kdevelop.

After some purging, I now get the following:
# apt-get install kdevelop
Reading Package Lists...
Building Dependency Tree...
Some packages could not be installed. This may mean that you have
requested an impossible situation or if you are using the unstable
distribution that some required packages have not yet been created
or been moved out of Incoming.
Since you only requested a single operation it is extremely likely that
the package is simply not installable and a bug report against
that package should be filed.
The following information may help to resolve the situation:
Sorry, but the following packages have unmet dependencies:
kdevelop: Depends: libc6 (>= 2.2.5-13) but 2.2.5-11.2 is to be installed
E: Sorry, broken packages
What else can I try to install KDE3 with kdevelop?
Can you please help me?
If you are trying to install the kdevelop that is in Debian's distribution
(woody or sid) then the suggestion you were given was wrong I'm afraid. The
earlier poster was correct: kdevelop in the Debian distribution is for KDE2
not KDE3. To get kdevelop to work on KDE3 you must do one of three things.
Either download the source and compile it yourself, find out if someone has
already done this and put up the results for download (If someone has done
this, I'm not aware of it), or try Gideon, which will become kdevelop v3.0
after if finishes its beta stage. If you are using a woody system and have
not done any updates to sid (unstable), then Gideon may not work for you, I
don't know for sure, since I keep my system mostly up-to-date with unstable,
so when I installed Gideon I had no problems. Gideon works fine for me, but I
haven't pushed it hard. It is after all still in beta.
So, you can go back to KDE2 to use kdevelop, or get KDE3 working again and try
Gideon (but you *may* have to at least partially upgrade to unstable for
this). There is a link to the Gideon packages here:
PS: I don't know what's causing the libc6 conflict in the message above. On
my unstable system libc6 is up to 2.3.1, so I can't help you with that.
