qtella ./configure problem

Hi. I hope some of u may be able to help me.
The result under is the one i get when i try to ./configure qtella. It says that i should use the --with-qt-libs= option. First off i dont know what that means, second it says in the Install text file that all i need to know about it is written in the README file. And the readme is empty!
I'm a real noob to linux and i hope someone can help me.

The solution is probably not that you need said option, but rather that "Qt libs not found!".
To be able to compile applications, you need a lot of files in place. In this case, some of them are mentioned qt libs. What you need to do is not point the installer to the location, where they are installed (which is, what that option would do), because, probably, they arent installed at all. Rather, you need to install these libraries and install qtella after that.
I cant really help you with installing them, because I dont know what your distribution is. Basically, you need to find a qt-libs rpm and install it.
Feel free to ask more questions on how to do that. Like I said, I need to know your distribution (plus what version of it) to point you to the right place.

Good luck so far,

It's called qt-devel (or sometimes kde-devel) if you're using rpms. Alternatively you can download and install qt-x11 from but when you run ./configure to install it, make sure you use the -thread option to get thread support compiled in.
