I trying to run

apt-get install kdewebdev

 and I keep getting the following error

While preparing for installation:

      file /usr/share/mimelnk/application/chm.desktop from install of kdelibs-3.5.2-1.1.el4.kde conflicts with file from package kdevelop-3.1.1-2
E: Error while running transaction

I am using CentOS 4.2 i386 and the repo

I don't really care about kdevelop since I never use it, what can I do?

Please help as I really want Quanta Plus to get serious with my PHP pages.

    First I'd use yum with CentOS and not apt, as yum was designed for rpm's like used in the redhat based distro's. Apt is meant for debian.

    Uninstall kdevelop either using:

    yum remove kdevelop


    apt-get remove kdevelop.
