This looks like a problem with a shared library. gvidcap, or one of the libraries it is linked with, is looking for a function, constant or variable called __fixunsdfdi in a shared library and cannot find it, hence the undefined symbol error.

Since you installed using urpmi I assume gvidcap was pre-compiled. Try getting the source code and compiling from source. This should help to determine any library dependancy problems.

No not a chance. :( I usually stick with with the version of KDE and/or GNOME which is supplied with the distro I'm using. In the past I've tried to update KDE and GNOME on SUSE Linux (various versions) and have ended up having to re-install. The problem with a KDE/GNOME upgrade on one of the ready made distro's is that each distro might do things differently to the others. SUSE, for instance, puts KDE in /opt/kde whereas Slackware tends to place everything in /usr.

The only time I've installed a brand new KDE is when building a Linux From Scratch system, see

http://www.linuxfromscratch.org/

and this is difficult enough. If you want an easy life then stick with what you've already got.

If it isn't broken, don't fix it :)

Konstruct will install the latest KDE from source for you. By default, it installs into your home directory, so it won't affect your current set up.
