Hi, I'm running Mandrake 9.1 and I'm trying to install a program for writing webpages. So, I have had almost the exact same problems as you, Avatar, so I'm stuck at this point with the libz error. Unfortunately, my rpmdrake won't open right now (I can't even get into the control panel!) so I can't try installing anything. but the thing is I found a file called and another one called so does this mean that I already have the needed files but just can't access them? (wait...sorry the first one is a link, the second one is a file)
Thanks for the help!

use apt-get

I had your origional problem
i installed an app call apt-get
its a package manager, has a huge list of nix apps all remotly installable and automatic
i had the Xlib error, i searched apt-get for xfree and found exactly what i needed
then i needed libJpeg, searched for it, installed it, worked fine
then i had this error
"checking for Qt... configure: error: Qt (>= Qt 3.0.2) (headers and libraries) not found. Please check your installation!"
i installed qt-devel 3.1.1-6 and still got the same error
i dont know why it worked for the others but not for qt

anyways , using a package manager makes things alot easier
there is another one called Gen2
it compiles from source rather then installing RPM's like apt-get does

good luck

and if anyone has a solution to my qt problem, i'd much appreciate it

qt headers
i came across that problem just last week

(searches hopeless human memory)

i installed qt-devel, qt-static-devel and any libqt's i could find

it sorted the dependancy
