I am running Debian 2.6.7-1-686
apt tells me QT3 (or whatever the current version is) is already at its newest version.
note, I am trying to install the bootsplash patch from www.bootsplash.org
I have downloaded and installed the kernel headers and source relating to my kernel.
I have unpacked the source and created a symlink or softlink (not 100% sure) with "ln -s" to "/usr/src/linux"
I have downloaded the relevant bootsplash.diff to my kernel source directory.
I have applied the patch using "patch -p1 <bootsplash.diff
when I then go to "make xconfig" I get the following
* Unable to find the QT installation. Please make sure that the
* QT development package is correctly installed and the QTDIR
* enviroment variable is set to the correct location.
make: *** [scripts/kconfig/.tmp_qtcheck] Error 1
make: *** [xconfig] Error 2
I have tried setting the QTDIR variable as follows
# QTDIR=/usr/share/qt3/lib make xconfig
But that gives the same error. There are other QT folders, but I am not searching for and then through all of them trial and error. My wife wants me to come to bed
So, how do I get round this little hiccup?
So far, I have got X working and I have snazzy colours when I do ls as shell.
This just leaves the bootsplash (above), nvidia drivers (should be easy (this time), OSS or ALSA (possibly) and KDE (Piece of P***)
Then I will burn all the packages I have downloaded to disc so I don't have to spend 4 hours waiting for KDE for about the 6th time
(If it goes wrong I tend to nuke and pave - don't bother me too much because I have a win partitons too. (will be trying out KDE shel on XP Pro at some point)).
