slack-current qt problem

I have slack-current with qt-3.3.4 and when I compile apps that nedd qt, it doesn't get detected.

Does anyone have that problem?

Yes, i had that problem, i downgraded qt to the version found in the slackware cd, made sure it updated my /etc/, ran ldconfig, and then everything worked again.

I tried that and now qt gets detected, but I get this error now:
checking if UIC has KDE plugins available... 
configure: error: not found - you need to install kdelibs first.

if qt is not getting detected, first thing you should check is that the QTDIR environmental variable is set:

echo $QTDIR

should output the prefix of where qt is installed. if it's not set, check /etc/profile.d for a ( or something similar, I'm not on my slack install right now so I can't get the exact name) or just add the line to /etc/profile and source it.
