"Hi, I'm trying to compile KDE programs and I will infallibly get a Qt 3 or greater not installed error, but it IS! It's installed as 'qt3', not 'qt-3.whatever' (I'm on SuSE 9)."
Could you post the exact error message that you are getting, including several lines before the error message and maybe a couple after.
