well ok, so i found and tried to run qt-devel-.rpm but the package is already installed. Maybe you can answer a couple ?'s for me.
what is the difference between the /usr/ path and the /usr/local path? And why is it that all my working (dist) apps are in /usr/ while everything that has been installed from a tarball winds up in local? Are the tarball installs trying to fufill dependencies with what is in /usr/local?
