Mandrake 10.1 Headaches


Thinking that this would be great... I installed it last night -- unfortunately, I've yet been able to compile anything substatial yet. Installing anything that needs Qt results in this:

checking for Qt... configure: error: Qt (>= Qt 3.0) (headers and libraries) not found. Please check your installation!
For more details about this problem, look at the end of config.log.


Yet they are located here:
/usr/lib/qt3/

Any ideas?

Thanks!

You made sure you installed the devel package? Looks to me like you installed the qt package, not devel package.

You're right, I just noticed that theyre not in... interestingly enough I can't install them because I don't have liblcms... This has been the worst install ever.... I think 10.0 way waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay better out of box..

You tried to install the qt-devel using the 'rpm' command right?
'rpm' doesn't know you've installed liblcms and there's no way for you to inform it.

However, if you run 'urpmi qt-devel-whatever' urpmi knows qt needs liblcms and automagically installs it.

Whacking down on 10.1 because you didn't select the qt-devels during install is a bit unfair, don't you think?

Always use urpmi instead of installing rpm's manually if possible. It's SO much easier.

Fair enough -- In any case, I have made some progress. Though I manually install liblcms, I was also able to find an rpm of it. Once installed via RPM, mandrake added it to its data base. Now I'm trying to find libaudio which doesn't seen to exist anywhere. Any ideas on that one?

As for installing Qt on install -- I didnt see it anywhere. Same thing with gtk and I spent all day downloading gtk and all of its dependencies libpng, tiff, pango, xft, fontconfig, etc and compiling. Interestingly enough, I didn't see it listed as either an installed package or a package to install.

But... what about libaudio -- do you know where I might find that? I tried rpm search and it was no where to be found (for mandrake) and I also updated the urpmi's media settings. Nothing there either. It seems not to exist... so then I wonder how Qt could have installed on install if this is the case!! Anyway, all help appreciated. Thanks, guys.

You have to select "Install individual packages" during install, and perhaps selecting the "Straight listing mode"
(or whatever it's called in english).

And you have to distinguish between qt and qt-devel. The first is for running (pre)installed programs. The second
is only needed if you want to compile anything that needs qt yourself.

I find the search function in MCC confusing. I run urpmf instead. You should try 'urpmf libaudio' and you'll see a list of
every package that contains anything named libaudio. In your case you'd select "libaudiofile0-devel" and run
'urpmi libaudiofile0-devel' to have it installed.

I understand -- I usually installed everything by hand. I must have missed qt and qt-devel. I didn't think there would be a problem installing it from RPMs after that though... I've been using urpmi as well and it didn't find anything. I'm gonna reinstall and see if that helps!

Well -- the reinstall did nothing but set me back. Luckily I saved all the binaries. As for qt -- there is absolutely no option to install it manually from the installer. I was, however, able to select gtkengine and gtkengine2... don't think that got me anywhere. A urpmi query on libaudio says everything already installed.... qt is nowhere to be found either because it's already installed. There are no qt-dev packages.

Any ideas now?

I don't think you really needed to. If you're installing from the 3 CD's (or by FTP) all the necessery RPM's are there.
On my CD3, in the media5 directory, there's a libqt3-devel-3.3.3-26mdk.i586.rpm and a libaudiofile0-devel-0.2.6-2mdk.i586.rpm for instance.

The "Straight listing mode" during "Individual package selection" is entered by toggling the third button from the left (I think)
at the bottom right. That'll show you all the packages ordered by name.

Unless you're trying to install the Community Edition. That might (perhaps) lack those packages.

I was installing from DVD. Whatever the case may have been, it was not working properly and it has now righted itself. I was able to accomplish last night in 2 hours of package installation what I couldn't in 6 on the previous install. Something had gone wrong the first time... It works now though... Oh well!
