Help sought to build KDE SC & Qt Framework.

You need the  Qt and KDE devel packages from your distribution. Inthe cloned folder of kbruch fro example, mkdir build, cd build and run your cmake command here. Find out first where you want to install these devel programs, something like ~/kde/install where you have access rights. Your cmake command will be something like:
cmake -DCMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX=~/kde/install ..

Paste here the result if it fails. You can probably find out why it fails though looking at the output.

You do NOT need to build Qt and kdelibs and such, this is too difficult and not needed for KDE Edu programs. Follow the above and paste the command and the full result in your mail please.

As Albert Astals said, 

You don't need to have all KDE modules to build rocs, 
you just need the development packages for kde, the rest you can 
install from your distro. 
Please, download just Rocs ( or any other app that you want to hack on 
), and try to run the CMake, 
it will tell you what are the parts that you miss.

Some time ago I wrote some of the needed steps here, maybe that helps: 


Thanks for the link above. I could make quite a bit of what's stated in there. 

My progress thus far : 
Up with GIT, Cmake, Kdelib-dev..............cloned. Still have some issues with the Qt stuff. 

I tried pullling one of the projects on kdeedu - kbruch, I have the git cloned source and also tried cmaking it, but for some reason it failed. The error is somethink like - missing source line in cmakelists.txt. I fathomed it to be something related to the version of the project and being incompatible with the version of cmake, I've installed. Is that possibly the reason ??? 

Also, suggest me if I could use KDE SVN Build, available in the KPackageKit ? How's that useful, if at all.
