qt4.SlackBuild won't compile qt-4.5.3 on Slack-12.2 based distro


I'm trying to install Qt4 and KeePassX with SlackBuilds on Wolvix 2, a Slackware 12.2 based distro. At first, the compile quit with this message:

Quote:
"Creating qmake. Please wait...
MySQL support cannot be enabled because of functionality tests. Turn on verbose messaging (-v) to ./configure to see final report. If you believe this message is in error you may use the continue switch (-continue) to ./configure to continue."
Okay. MySQL wasn't installed yet, so I installed mysql-5.0.67 from the slack12.2 repo, and ran ./qt4.SlackBuild again. Again, the compile quit with the same message about no MySQL support. Rebooted the computer (sometimes it helps), and compiled again. It quit again with that same message.

I'd rather have MySQL support than not. Regardless, how do I pass the ./configure options mentioned in the error message when compiling with a Slackbuild script? Or does MySQL need some other action to make it work with other programs?

using scripts

Yes, I'm using the SlackBuild bundle downloaded from slackbuilds.org <http://slackbuilds.org/repository/12.2/libraries/qt4/>, for Qt4 on Slackware 12.2, along with the latest Qt4 library source downloaded from the Trolltech/Nokia Qt project website <http://qt.nokia.com/downloads/linux-x11-cpp>. Since the qt4 source version (4.5.3) is later than that referred to in the actual qt4.Slackbuild scripts (4.5.1), I changed the version references to match. Other than that, I've made no changes nor run any extra options. I just login as root, change to the directory with the SlackBuild unpacked and the program source tarball, and run "./qt4.SlackBuild"

The official qt.SlackBuild has this:

Code:
# Fix path to mysql header
zcat $CWD/qt.mysql.h.diff.gz | patch -p1 || exit 1
which your script doesnt have.
Maybe that will help.
You can find the patch in the Slackware source tree.

I'm sorry to say, but "Slackware-based" != "Slackware", so we can only guess what might be different in your environment. Anyway, just installing Slackware
packages on a non-Slackware distribution is probably bound to cause problems.

That is not true. The SlackBuild uses the same patch, just not the same command for patching.

You're right. This distro mainly defaults to LXDE, Fluxbox, and XFCE desktops, adds some programs and takes others out to keep the live CD lightweight. More over, this is a beta release, so there are kinks still being worked out. Many of the installed packages come from Slackware 12.2, but the rest are rolled by the distro designer.

Well, I'm not sure where the relevant differences lie, so how can I pass the verbose option to Qt4's ./configure through the SlackBuild, to at least see how it "fails the functionality tests"?

Well, I downloaded the originally intended version of Qt4 (4.5.1), and reset the SlackBuild script for that version, but that didn't help any. I dumped the ./configure options into the SlackBuild itself, and with verbose on, got more info that I can't really decipher...

Alright, this is the modified ./configure options in the SlackBuild:
Code:
	echo $'o\nyes' | ./configure \
	  -prefix /usr/lib/qt4 \
	  -no-separate-debug-info \
	  -nomake examples \
	  -nomake demos \
	  -qt-gif \
	  -fast \
	  -system-libpng \
	  -system-libjpeg \
	  -system-zlib \
	  -dbus \
	  -I/usr/include/mysql -L/usr/lib/mysql -R/usr/lib/mysql -plugin-sql-mysql \
	  -webkit \
	  -silent \
	  $GRAPHICS \
	  $MEDIA \
	  -opensource \
	  -system-sqlite \
	  -verbose
Ran it, and failed with the same warning, but more info just before that!

The only thing I'm getting from that is that MySQL and/or other database components are not being properly detected. I know SQLite and MySQL are installed...

I don't know how to test MySQL (or SQLite), so I checked the libraries:
Code:
root@wolvix ~ $ ldd /usr/bin/mysql
	linux-gate.so.1 =>  (0xffffe000)
	libncurses.so.5 => /lib/libncurses.so.5 (0xb7f2e000)
	libmysqlclient.so.15 => /usr/lib/mysql/libmysqlclient.so.15 (0xb7deb000)

	libdl.so.2 => /lib/libdl.so.2 (0xb7ce0000)
	/lib/ld-linux.so.2 (0xb7f29000)
Well, I'm no code master to decipher this any more, so I'm going to take the mysql options out of the SlackBuild (that's the sticking point), and see how it runs.

The errors state that you do not have libmng and openssl installed, which are needed by the build.
