Qt and installation procedures?


I just installed Slack 8.0 and I didn't really do the GUI part of it right, so I'm in the business of installing KDE 3.0, and it requires QT 3.0.2. I'm using the copy that came with KDE just because it was already downloaded. Now, the problem is, I can't seem to find a configure file, or a makefile. The only thing that might be executable is a file called "doinst.sh", looks like AWK or something, but I can't really tell. Right now it's read only, haven't messed with it.
The help file says to unzip/untar into /usr/local and then run ./configure. Except, it didn't install into /usr/local, it made it's own directories /usr/local and all of that. Good thing I discovered this by testing it out in a different location before hand.
I searched for any files called configure on my hd and came up with only two, neither of which are for Qt ...
Has anyone had any experience with Qt? Do I even need to install it at all, perhaps because Slack aready has Qt 3.0.2? Thanks in advance

Slack 8 comes with qt-2.3.1, for kde3 you'll need qt-3.0.3. Have a look at this page for kde3 source requirements. The qt-copy package will be v3.0.3, what I do is move the source to /usr/lib/qt-3.0.3 (next to qt-2.3.1) and create a symlink to it (just like slack does with qt2), then I do "./configure (with all the recomended options)" and "make", I don't do a "make install" on qt.

Thanks for your help, but could you be more specific? Where did you untar the file to? What did you symlink it to? Where on earth did you find the configure file? Those are the things I"m seeking.

no matter where you untar this files you will have to type something like "export qt-lib /your_install_directory/qt/3.0" & "import qt3.0...." or to create a .profile files that will do it for you in your home. This command/file will tell your system where exactly is Qt, so you can untar it anywhere you want. Read the README or INSTALL files that come with Qt it will tell what to do.
