i'm not sure what you really got, but i could tell you what you need
and what to do with it. You could use the latest SVN snapshot for
installing digiKam. You could get both tar archives using the following
please download them both to a directory that you want, e.g. /tmp
open konsole and enter
tar xvjf kdeextragear-libs.tar.bz2
tar xvjf kdeextragear-graphics.tar.bz2
if everything had compiled successfully, you need to get root to
install KIPI. Use
sudo make install
After that you should compile and install digikam itself.
sudo make install
Now you should have an actual copy of the latest digiKam version from
Remark 1: Depending on what you have done before with your installation
you might need additional packages to install before you could compile
Remark 2: It might be a good idea to tell the whole process where to
find everything. You could do this easily by setting some environment
variables, after opening konsole.
or similar. This depends on your distribution the lines above are
correct for SuSE. Simply search for the directories by yourself.
Hope this help you installing digiKam.

IMO, if you're on a distribution with a recent Digikam and plugins, use the
package manager, rather than mess around with compiling. Those using Debian
or Ubuntu can take advantage of Achim Bonnet's packages of 0.80 beta2 if you
don't want to use the older packages that come in the distro.
