This describes how you can get kde to compile so that you can log in graphically (using kdm, the KDE display manager) and call konqueror (contained in KDEBASE, KDE's base package).
Use the following commands to install the needed packages:
yast -i alsa-devel automoc4 avahi-devel patch cups-devel kde4-filesystem libbz2-devel avahi-compat-mDNSResponder-devel hal-devel xorg-x11-devel libQtWebKit-devel libxml2-devel kdesdk4 clucene-core-devel boost-devel libjpeg-devel liblrdf-devel libpng-devel libxslt-devel libredland-devel Mesa-devel giflib-devel subversion gcc-c++ gmp-devel xine-devel libgpgme-devel pcre-devel dbus-1-devel libqt4-devel cmake git
You can install kdesupport and its dependencies from SUSE by adding the KDE:KDE4 repository from the openSUSE Build Service to your installation sources. For openSUSE 11.2 add this Repository to your Install Source (Yast)
For older versions of SUSE Linux do:
su installation_sources -a http://software.opensuse.org/download/KDE:/KDE4:/[YOUR SUSE LINUX VERSION]
Now install kdesupport from SUSE:
yast -i libqca2-devel libsoprano-devel libqimageblitz-devel strigi-devel
Please remember to skip any instructions from Getting_Started/Build/KDE4 that refer to kdesupport. Start to compile with kdelibs.
Return to building KDE 4.
