configure qt thread issue (just compiled qt w/ -thread option)


Hi, I'm trying to run configure with kaudiocreator. I'm using RH 8.0. I'm got and error message like

checking for Qt... configure: error: Qt (>= Qt 3.2) (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!

So I went out and got the qt source code from trolltech version 3.3.2. I ran
#./configure -thread
#make
#make install
then i went back and tried configure with kaudiocreator again and am still getting the same error message. What did I do wrong? Thanks.

Make sure that you:

1. Have your qt install dir in your /etc/ld.so.conf
2. have QTDIR set
3. Have your qt library in your LD_LIBRARY_PATH

Did you un-install the qt rpm that came with deadrat?


Cheers,

Could you please elaborate a little on 2 and 3? Are these all in the /etc/ld.so.conf file?

DeadRat=RedHat
rpm = Redhat Package Manager.

Wild guess: RH came with some version of Qt,
you installed new version, but old version gets
picked up first.

Which path? like the paths that I can set in my profile so i have access to them from anywhere in console? Which file are you referring to in 2 and 3?

Yes, what you describe as a PATH is what I'm talking about.

LD_LIBRARY_PATH and QTDIR are similiar in this regard...they just mean something different.

PATH is where you locate binaries.
LD_LIBRARY_PATH is where you locate libraries.
QTDIR is where you locate your QT Install.

Things like LD_LIBRARY_PATH and QTDIR usually only come in to effect when you're compiling things.

Here are some examples of things I have set in my .bashrc for the things I do.

PATH=/bin:/usr/bin:/sbin:/usr/X11R6/bin:/usr/local/bin:\
/usr/sbin:/usr/local/sbin:/home/scripts:/usr/local/mysql/bin:/usr/local/qt/bin:\
/usr/local/kde/bin:/usr/local/mrtg-2/bin:.

KDEDIR=/usr/local/kde
KDEDIRS=/usr/local/kde

QTDIR=/usr/local/qt-3.3.1

LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/usr/lib:/usr/local/lib:/usr/local/mysql4/lib:\
/usr/local/qt/lib:/usr/local/mysql4/lib/mysql:/usr/local/ssl/lib:/usr/X11/lib:\
/usr/local/kde/lib:/usr/local/lib/gaim

PKG_CONFIG_PATH=/usr/local/lib/pkgconfig:/usr/X11R6/lib/pkgconfig

Once you determine that you have your pathes for things set correctly ( please don't use mine, above is nothing more than an example of how they can be set via your .bashrc ) trying recompiling and see what happens.

If you still don't understand, then I suggest that whatever you're attempting to do, find an RPM instead, until such a time as you've learned a little more.
