KDevelop RPMS file

I recently purchased Caldera OpenLinux 2.3 and am trying to Install the latest version of KDevelop.  OpenLinux 2.3 shipped with KDevelop 1.0 Beta 1 in the "RPMS" format and I have successfully installed that.  However, I would like to install the newer version 1.0Beta4.1.  I have downloaded the kdevelop-1.0beta4.1.tar.gz file, but I am not having any luck getting that instaled and making it work.  Is there an "RPMS" version of this installation available?

I'm new to Linux.  The RPMS format makes the installation a breeze for a Linux novice.

Thanks for any help you can provide!

Eric.

This seem not quite related to programming!
However, you could get the rpm at ftp://kde.tdyc.com/pub/kde/redhat/i386/kdevelop-1.0beta4.1-1.i386.rpm .
Take a look at http://kde.tdyc.com/dl.php3?package=26

gunzip <filename.gz>
tar -xvf <filename.tar>

or tar has another option that lets you untar the gzipped files also.  Check up man tar. This will let you use the current downloaded file.

To DVB,
Once I have the files unzipped and un-tarred, do I need to move the files any place soecial, or let the system/kernel know that they are there?

Check out the readme. There may be an install script or a make install option in the makefile. This will be detailed in the readme.
You usually don't need to move things around. If you are making a library, put the resultant file in /usr/lib or in /usr/local/lib (the second one recommended) and make sure that the directories are in your $LIBPATH. If its an executable, put it in /usr/bin or /usr/local/bin (again /usr/local recommended).
