Odd QT 3.04 / KDE 3 Problem


Hi,

A couple of days ago I updated QT to the newest version in order to install KDE 3. Not a single problem - QT installed slowly, but fine, and I began installing KDE, which was also successful (am using it now, as a matter of fact). However, after a few days, I've gone back to install a couple of packages from KDE that I didn't install originally, and now it's giving me this error:

checking for Qt... configure: error: Qt (>= Qt 3.0.3) (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 don't understand what happened, since all was well in the beginning, I compiled Qt with thread support from the start and the packages I've already installed went fine. Does anyone know what it could be?

Thanks
Jennifer

Try this [code]echo $QTDIR[ and see if it points to the right directory (where you installed the updated Qt.

Yep it does, already checked it, it's in my path as well. Nothing has been changed since I installed it a couple of days ago

I once had a similar problem, though mine was due to the path problem mentioned already (which I thought I had setup right too)...

I know it's no help, but figured at least you'd know other's have had similar problems

Good Luck!

I'm pretty sure it's setup correctly -- it was at first and I haven't touched it, Qt is in /usr/local/qt and printenv or echo $PATH shows it as being in my path, but nothing seems to be seeing that it's actually there, despite having worked when I first installed KDE 3. Grrr. echo $QTDIR shows /usr/local/qt and that should be correct. I can even run, for instance, Qt Designer in X and that works fine, I just don't see what the problem could be

Long long time ago , I faced a similar problem too when upgrading QT (2.0 to 3.0) in my Mandrake 8.2.

I found it best to just upgrade the whole distro because they usually take care of all the dependencies problem.

It's a library thing - looks like I don't have it installed or setup properly either
Code:
bash-2.05a$ find /usr -name libqt*
(****Slack 8.1 defualt Qt pkg ****)
/usr/lib/qt-3.0.4/lib/libqt-mt.so.3
/usr/lib/qt-3.0.4/lib/libqt-mt.prl
/usr/lib/qt-3.0.4/lib/libqt-mt.so
/usr/lib/qt-3.0.4/lib/libqt-mt.so.3.0.4
/usr/lib/qt-3.0.4/lib/libqt-mt.so.3.0

(**** My build of the most recent Qt ****)
/usr/local/qt/lib/libqt.prl
/usr/local/qt/lib/libqt.so.3.0.5
/usr/local/qt/lib/libqt.so.3.0
/usr/local/qt/lib/libqt.so.3
/usr/local/qt/lib/libqt.so
So you may want to check for qt-development stuff at the qt site. Looks like I should, too.
