Unable to install Virtualbox on Fedora 10


When trying to install virtualbox with the following line:

rpm -ivh VirtualBox-2.0.6_39765_fedora9-1.x86_64.rpm

I receive the following error:

error: Failed dependencies:
libQtCore.so.4()(64bit) is needed by VirtualBox-2.0.6_39765_fedora9-1.x86_64
libQtGui.so.4()(64bit) is needed by VirtualBox-2.0.6_39765_fedora9-1.x86_64
libQtNetwork.so.4()(64bit) is needed by VirtualBox-2.0.6_39765_fedora9-1.x86_64


I was wondering how to install these files? Messing around with yum I was unable to find any qt packages which seemed appropriate to install. I am running Fedora 10 x64.

Thanks for the help

You have to install qt4 for Virtualbox to work. You can get it from here.
You should use yum so you can resolve dependencies.

qt4 is in the standard Fedora repo. I believe you will need qt4-devel.

yum install qt4-devel

This will install qt4 as a dependency if it is not already installed.

Edit: I guess in F10 it is just qt-devel and the standard version of qt is qt4.

qt-4.4.3-6.fc10.x86_64.rpm
qt-devel-4.4.3-6.fc10.x86_64.rpm

@bathory:

You provided a link to rpm.pbone.net. I came across this site a lot while trying to fix this issue. Is this a typical resource to use for installing things in fedora? I have been using ubuntu for years and it seems like apt is a lot more powerful than yum. I just started using fedora so I could be wrong.

rpm.pbone.net is a rpm search engine (like rpmfind and others).
You can use it to search for software you want to install, when it's not available in the official fedora repositories.
