kdevelop3 on opensuse 11.2

I recently installed OpenSUSE 11.2 on my netbook. There’s a lot of great new features like KDE 4.3, much better kernel 2.6.31 support for Intel Graphics and the Atheros wifi, but also good things disappear from the distro like some good working old kde3 applications. KDevelop3 is still a favorite for my daily work. However kdevelop4 is there, it is still having bugs and lacking functionality and not in a final release. I still want to work with KDevelop3. Well, it’s quite easy to fix that.

One could easily install the packages from an old repository found on:

Probably this is just the openesuse 11.1 repository, but I’m not sure, it could also be a prerelease of
11.2. If the repositories disappear, I hve placed the files on

Items like qt3, cvs, subversion, ruby, python, kdebase3, kdelibs3, kdelibs3-devel should be installed
from the OpenSUSE 11.2 repository. After that, these additional packages are neccessary:

and at last:

Probably the binary package from kdevelop.org can be used too, but I didn’t try that yet.

    I ran into the same problem and managed to install it through the OpenSUSE build service. Here’s a link to the forum where I wrote about it:

    thanks, I found there is a KDE3 repository at http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/KDE:/KDE3/openSUSE_11.2/ (however the checksums are broken) and a packman version (amarok 1.4 with proper MP3 and MySQL support) on http://packman.mirrors.skynet.be/pub/packman/suse/kde3/11.2/
    Even for opensuse 11.3 there’s a KDE3 repository now.
