You may have QT installed but will probably find that you will need the development libraries if you are compiling from source. Have a look in package manager for the rpm with libqt as it's name ans install that if you haven't already. Other than that you may find that the QT configure script isn't looking in the right place.

Are you using Mandrake?

"Whenever I compile from source,I get error message said libqt-mt is missing.

You are probably missing libqt3-mt-dev.

"Where can I get libqt-mt? Isnt it contained in qt?"

You should check Mandrake for a package containing libqt3-mt-dev. I am uncertain what Mandrake calls the package. It may be called qt3-devel by Mandrake.

If you look, libqt-mt.so.3 is included, in the following location: /usr/lib/qt3/lib. If you have that file then I guess you have installed the correct RPM.

My apologies, it looks like you will need to install libqt3-devel-3.3.3-26mdk.rpm as well. This one includes a symlink (I presume) to the libqt-mt.so file which is probably what you need. Looks like a another user is having a similar problem in this thread

Doing things the hard way...


The easy way....

Set your URPMI sources:

See: http://www.zebulon.org.uk/urpmi_en.html

Then once done... merely

urpmi libqt-dev (or whatever)

and let urpmi work it's magic.

I hate urpmi bc I have to configure everything in console so I am using rpmdrake. Every those packages I installed was using rpmdrake. Arg,may be it is time to get urpmi to work...but I thought they are doing the exactly same thing but how can my rpmdrake installed a rpm of which something is missing?

What is the exact ./configure error message you get with regards to the libqt-mt library? And can you confirm that the library files exist by using your favourite file manager (konqueror, konsole, nautilus)? If you definately have the packages installed then the ./configure script can't locate them and you may have to set it the path to them manually.

I personally don't like urpmi, but it really isn't that hard to use from the command line. It's a few commands and that's all, but at the end of the day it's up to you.

rpmdrake will not install missing modules until you set up your urpmi sources.

See: http://www.zebulon.org.uk/urpmi_en.html

4 minutes to set up! What's the problem doing so?

rpmdrake does not use the src.rpm files directly, so it's easier to use the command line

urpmi nameofpackage.src.rpm to automatically pick up any required developement libs.

He should already have one source as I thought that when installing Mandy it automatically chooses your installation media as an urpmi source? I agree that if your using an installation CD/DVD then you probably wont have all the relevent rpms (as oposed to the online data stores), but I'm almost certain that the ones needed here are on CD1 or the DVD.
