What is the difference between a "Threaded version" and "Non Threaded" packages?


Eg. I have

Threaded Version
libqt3-mt-dev 3.2.3-2 Qt development files (Threaded)
libqt3c102-mt 3.2.3-2 Qt GUI Library (Threaded runtime version)

Non-threaded version
libqt3-dev <none> (no description available)

What's the difference between threaded and non-threaded version?

Thanks !

Non-threaded means its compiled without thread support. ( one thread per process ). So it can't spawn threads to deal with tasks, it all dealt with in one thread.

Use the threaded version. Its the version nearly everthing uses.
