Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

i have tried tacking the /lib part on but its still fails!!
so infuriating. it also tells me to looking in config.log for further details, which contains this at the bottom (sorry, large dump - i have placed ********* in front of the lines i think might be causing the issue):

what do you make of this???
can i simply set a variable called QT_VERSION to something like 305 to match my version number??
how do i do this??
You have 5 different versions of qt installed? Or are some symlinks? It seems to be confusing the ./configure script, because it's finding multiple copies of the same file. I would remove all the older versions of qt. It also appears that you don't have the headers (there is no /include subdirectory in qt-3.05)
try /usr/lib/qt-3.0.5/lib if you haven't already
try QTDIR=/usr/lib/qt-3.0.5/ ; export $QTDIR
try QT_VERSION=305; export $QT_VERSION
May do nothing, who knows? Other than that, I don't know what to tell you.

i don't like the way compiling of compiling qt. you have
to have environment variables and crap. then when you
want to install it, it's a little hard to know what all files
you need to put in your qtdir, or if you installed it in place,
what stuff you can delete. it's not that hard, i just don't like
it. if i did it more than once a couple of years, i would have
a script for it. oh well, just nagging.
