Required Packages

Use the following commands to install the needed packages:

yast -i alsa-devel
yast -i automoc4
yast -i avahi-devel
yast -i patch 
yast -i cups-devel
yast -i kde4-filesystem
yast -i libbz2-devel
yast -i avahi-compat-mDNSResponder-devel
yast -i hal-devel
yast -i xorg-x11-devel
yast -i libQtWebKit-devel
yast -i libxml2-devel 
yast -i kdesdk3 
yast -i clucene-core-devel 
yast -i boost-devel
yast -i libjpeg-devel 
yast -i liblrdf-devel 
yast -i libpng-devel 
yast -i libxslt-devel 
yast -i libredland-devel
yast -i Mesa-devel 
yast -i giflib-devel 
yast -i subversion 
yast -i gcc-c++
yast -i gmp-devel
yast -i xine-devel
yast -i libgpgme-devel (needed to build kdepimlibs)
yast -i pcre-devel
yast -i dbus-1-devel
yast -i libqt4-devel


Now install cmake, in this example 2.6.2:

tar xvzf cmake-2.6.2.tar.gz
cd cmake-2.6.2
make && make install


Now install kdesupport from SUSE: libqca2-devel libsoprano-devel libqimageblitz-devel strigi strigi-devel

There are a lot more packages that are needed to satisfy the config-check, such as libusb-devel, bison etc., so look out for the config notifications and install accordingly. Please remember to skip any instructions from Getting_Started/Build/KDE4 that refer to kdesupport. Start to compile with kdelibs.

Optional Packages

You can skip the manual and painful installation kdesupport and its dependencies ( Qt 4.3, CMake 2.4.6, DBus, Hal, clucene-core, Strigi, Soprano and other Nepomuk dependencies) by adding the KDE:KDE4 repository from the openSUSE Build Service to your installation sources.

For openSUSE 10.2 and newer add this Repository to your Install Source (Yast)

For older versions of SUSE Linux do: su installation_sources -a[YOUR SUSE LINUX VERSION]

Return to building KDE 4.
