I'm trying to install kdevelop using the rpms with the following command :

rpm -Uvh kdevelop-1.1-1.i386.rpm

but I get the following errors :

error : failed dependencies:
          libjscript.so.2 is needed by kdevelop-1.1-1
          libkdecore.so.2 is needed ...

7 libraries are needed. I located the lib's in the /usr/lib directory so they are installed.

If the libraries are already installed there is an option for the rpm command to ignore dependencies. It's either
--nodep or
--nodeps

the command should then be (assuming --nodeps is it):
rpm -Uvh --nodeps kdevelop-1.1-1.i386.rpm

If the libraries are correctly installed (usr/lib is presumably in your PATH and LD_LIBRARY_PATH environment variables) so that the app finds them runtime, it shouldn't be a problem.

I hope this solves your problem!

well, I solved my problem by reinstalling the kdelib rpm and now it works. But I don't have the LD_LIBRARY_PATH environment variable. How do I create it??

Come to think of it, it's quite possible I was talking bullshit there. The LD_LIBRARY_PATH variable is (AFAIK) only used when compiling / linking programs, and not when running them. If you're primarily installing from binary RPMs you won't need to set it.

If you do want to set it you could do so in your .bashrc file (assuming you are using bash-shell) using the command:

export LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/usr/lib;...

The same command can be run "manually" in a shell, but then you'll have to do it every time you need the variable.

It's obvious my answer didn't solve your problem, so I'm withdrawing it...

Well, it's not the answer to my question, but I didn't know how to set an environment variable. So after all, I learned something new.

For those after me reading this question : I had to use the option --force to install the rpm again.
