Some of the required packages for building KDE4 on Fedora 7 or higher:
<code bash>
yum install clucene-core-devel libxml-devel libxslt-devel \

Some additional packages are required for Fedora 9 or higher:
<code bash>
yum install libcapseo-devel libcaptury-devel
Some optional packages for koffice support:
<code bash>
yum install qca2-devel gsl-devel freeglut-devel \
GraphicsMagick-c++-devel GraphicsMagick-devel
akonadi uses mysql:
<code bash>
yum install mysql-devel
This includes installation of D-Bus and CMake -- you can skip steps 5 and 6.
DCH-10/15/07: Note - It may be simpler to spin RPMs. Note that you can edit the variables in /etc/rpm/macros.kde4 (which is provided by Rawhide kde-filesystem).
The build stage then looks like:
(but in what directory?)
mkdir -p %{_target_platform}
pushd %{_target_platform}
%{cmake_kde4} ..
make %{?_smp_mflags} -C %{_target_platform}
I have had better results with creating a kdesupport rpm which means that you should not install the soprano and strigi rpms. YMMV
telsh: On a Fedora 8 System I had to install "qt4-devel" too to have qmake.

Introduction to CMake


Install basic toolchain:

yum groupinstall 'Development Tools'

yum install subversion cmake

Install the yum-utils package to get yum-builddep: yum install yum-utils

Basic functional desktop

yum-builddep kdelibs kdebase akonadi

Full-optionals desktop

yum-builddep kdeaccessibility kdeadmin kdeartwork \

   kdebase kdebindings kdeedu kdegames kdegraphics \
   kdelibs kdemultimedia kdenetwork kdepim \
   kdepimlibs kdeplasma-addons kdesdk kdetoys \
   kdeutils akonadi


Fedora < 11 still ships with KOffice 1.6.

yum-builddep will install dependencies for the KDE 3 version.

yum-builddep koffice-suite


It generally requires the following tools installed: yum install doxygen graphviz qt-doc

Module prerequisites

To install prerequisites just run yum-builddep module-name

Where "module-name" is the name of the module you want to install
