hi there,

every time i try to build a program from tarball it stucks because of the same reason

Kalimera!

Well, there WERE major changes from
2.x -> 3.x ... if you're lucky it's just the
configure script, though.

The thing to do would be to edit ./configure
in the programs source directory and
find the version string ... check whether
you can modify the criteria to match your
version.... of course, this doesn't necessarily
mean it will compile properly ... if the prototypes
of the functions differ it might fall over.
In that case you'll need to find a version
that's been built with Qt 3.x in mind.

Cheers,
Tink

Should be possible if you keep it in a seperate
directory, but only set the PATH and
LD_LIBRARY_PATH in a shell-script that runs
the program you want to compile now ... you'll
also have to pass the correct paths to the qt
libraries and headers to the programs configure
script.

Cheers,
Tink
