./configure help (Qt)


after finally solving the problem of configure not finding X (i reinstalled...), configure now tells me:
checking for Qt... configure: error: Qt (>= Qt 3.1.0) (headers and libraries not found. Please check your installation!
So, what is Qt, where do i find out the version number i have (is that the problem?) and why does this happen when i selected "install everything" during Linux installation?

Qt is a c++ Xtk (actually cross platform library) for developing gui apps.

Make sure that you haven't Qt installed in your system (look @ /usr/lib/qt*) if yes be sure that the version is the required one.

it's easy to get QT (from trolltech.no) but i prefer getting your distro specific build. if not download the QT source code and build it.


final word: QT is the core of the KDE.

good luck

My distro is Yellow Dog Linux, the ppc version of Red Hat.
I looked in /usr/lib/ and there IS a directory called qt-3.1.
So what should i do now?

i ran ./configure on the new kopete, and got this error, but i know it's incorrrect (proof of this in the space below):

Code:
checking for perl... /usr/bin/perl
checking for Qt... configure: error: Qt (>= Qt 3.2) (headers and libraries) not found. Please check your installation!
For more details about this problem, look at the end of config.log.
[scuzzy@localhost kopete-0.8.4]$ export | grep QTDIR
declare -x QTDIR="/usr/lib/qt-3.3"
[scuzzy@localhost kopete-0.8.4]$
Any Ideas anyone?

put the path
/usr/lib/qt-3.1/lib
in /etc/ld.so.conf
and as root run
ldconfig
for make you will also need
/usr/lib/qt-3.1/bin
in your PATH variable
