qtchat install problems

Im trying VERY hard to install QTchat on my Linux
machine and it's not working well. I running the installation as describe in the README and keep getting
an error that qt-2 is not installed, but I show it
located in /etc/qt2. (Installed qt using rpm)
Is there a trick?? Thanks for your help in advance!!!

maybe u better post the exact error message. possible the compiler looks for qt in a different directory? maybe then a simple symlink helps.
or u have to export QTDIR in /home/u/.bashrc
export QTDIR
i think /etc/qt-2 is not the correct location, is it? rather /usr/..
cheers, jens

FYI: I just realized I'm running Qt 3.x vice 2.x. Installed using an RPM and I can't erase (rpm -e).

This isnt as easy as I thought it would be..

You may still be able to compile with qt3
I recently had success with licq and qtella with qt3
may have to specify paths: not sure about exact syntax
but try

if rpm problem try --nodeps
