Updating Qt for kxdocker?


Hello! I'm trying compile kxdocker but receive the error:

checking for Qt... configure: error: Qt (>= Qt 3.0) (library qt-mt) not found. Please check your installation!
For more details about this problem, look at the end of config.log.
Make sure that you have compiled Qt with thread support!

I found an RPM for a more recent version of QT (qt-3.3.2) but there are so many programs that are dependant on the old Qt library (3.1). What can I do about this?

Thank you so much for your time!

Do you have qt-devel package? If not, install it and try again. It should help.

I've checked kxdockers website and it looks it requires KDE 3.2, what means also Qt 3.2. To make it compile you'd need to upgrade both of them...

I understand that I need to upgrade which brings me back to my original question:

How can I upgrade to 3.2 when there are so many dependencies on the old one?

When trying to install I receive the error:

patrick]$ rpm -Uvh qt-3.3.2-0.1.i386.rpm qt-devel-3.3.2-0.1.i386.rpm

error: Failed dependencies:
/usr/lib/qt-3.1 is needed by (installed) redhat-artwork-0.88-1
qt-devel = 1:3.1.2-14 is needed by (installed) qt-designer-3.1.2-14

Thank you for being patient. This is all new to me.

Upgrading from RPMs manually is not an easy task. I'd be a much better idea to do this using a tool. You can try yum. Here's more about upgrading: http://www.brandonhutchinson.com/Upg..._with_yum.html
