Unable to find the QT installation while I'm trying to make xconfig for kernel 2.6.7

Hello again,

Once you advance, you get more problem

I m trying to configure my kernel...

So, I downloaded the sources, unzipped them. That's ok

I go in the linux-2.6.7 directory and type "make xconfig"

It starts to do someting, but stops saying my that he's "Unable to find the QT installation." have to be sure that QT is installed, and to check my QTDIR environment variable...

So !
1) how can be sure that I have QT installed ?
2) not sure for that, but is it right to check QTDIR like that ? echo $QTDIR
3) If QT is not installed... which command have to do with apt-get install to get it ?

thanks for your help !

I had the same problem a while back. Something like

apt-get install libqtdev

fixed it.

It might have taken a few different packages eg libqtdev2 libqtdev3 ... blah blah, so some patience will be required. I suggest you search the apt cache for qt ¦grep dev and see what looks reasonable.

You can also try

aptitude -s install libqtdev3

and see what packages it recommends you install with it.

Sorry I can't be more specific - it was a while back, and I don't have my debian machine here so I can't do an apt-cache search to refresh my memory. Hope this helps,
