Trouble with KDE 3.2 yum upgrade/install

Following a few suggestions on the fedora list list I went looking for KDE 3.2 for Fedora and found myself at http://kde-redhat.sourceforge.net/

Following the instructions there I modified my yum.conf and attempted to do an upgrade. Unfortunately I got a whole ton of dependency errors. many to do with ALSA. So I went looking for Alsa and installed it all, and am now left with only half a dozen errors. One of the missing packages is particularly puzzling as I cannot find any mention of it anywhere:

package gtk2 needs themer >= 0:1.40 (not provided)
package gtk+ needs themer >= 0:1.40 (not provided)
package redhat-artwork needs themer >= 0:1.40 (not provided)
package qt needs themer >= 0:1.40 (not provided)
package kdebase needs themer >= 0:1.40 (not provided)

Can anyone tell me what themer is and where I can find it?

Unfortunately, I'm not sure about themer.
The only options I can think of is to uninstall the 3.2 you just tried setting up and either:

Try this tutorial:

Or download FC2 test1 (yes not quick I realise) and run KDE 3.2 already included in it.

Go here


And here in the promised land you will find the themer package. Download it, install it and then make merry.

This is apt repo as to why it is not there in the yum repo dunno. Noo idea. It would be better if before installing it and making merry you might like to use the --test flag to rpm like so

rpm -ivh --test themer*.rpm

So that you are able to make merry rather than holding your head and cursing me .
