    Can't Install kdevelop

    I am relatively new to linux and mandriva and I am having some trouble installing KDevelop.

    Edit: I am using a fresh new install of Mandriva 2006

    When I used the package installer I get "Sorry, the following package(s) can't be selected: kdevelop-3.2.2-3mdk" . When I first tried it, it went to install some required packages and then gave me the text I just mentioned.

    When I tried urpmi kdevelop it said "blah blah so and so needs to be installed" which I did. Then it said "The following packages can't be installed because they depend on packages
    that are older than the installed ones:

    It asked me if I wanted to continue and then it said it couldnt install. Now when I use urpmi kdevelop I still get the "Following packages can't be installed.... blah blah" Continue? then it says"The packages are already installed" - which I ampretty sure they arent.

    I seem to remember having a similar problem installing Kdevelop, so I installed it from source. For some reason this worked! As you know installing from source can be quite hard sometimes.

    The trouble was it took nearly an hour to compile.

    Yea I tried doing that, but I have to install some other things first (which the packages also don't seem to be working for...), and I am quite a noob.

    Anyone know how to get the kdevelop package to work like it is supposed to?
