    Installing superkaramba from source


    Hi there,

    I'm a relative newbie to Linux (been using it for 6 months now). The one thing I have not been able to accomplish successfully yet is installing from source. I'm fine with yum and rpms, but come unstuck when having to compile source. I just can't figure out the error messages and how to resolve them. So I thought I'd pick a package and see if anyone here would be willing to help me through the installation process.

    A few facts:
    Distro - FC4 (installed the developer version)
    PC - 384 mb RAM

    So when I typed ./configure to try and install superkaramba, I got the following error:
    [root@localhost superkaramba-0.37-RC1]# ./configure

    Where do I go from here? Thanks.

    Start at the bottom and work upwards.
    Code:
    checking for Qt... configure: error: Qt (>= Qt 3.3) (headers and libraries) not found. Please check your installation!
    The first thing to do here is to check out your installation of Qt (surprisingly :P). There are two ways to do this, both of which reference the same place anyways. For the first, get to a console as root and use rpm to query what version of qt you have. The second is to search through your lib directories (/usr/lib and /usr/lib64 if you're using x86_64 architecture) for anything referencing qt.

    As you're trying to teach yourself here, you can work out the commands yourself (though I'd be surprised if, in six months, you haven't run into them already).

    You just need to install some dev packages.
    I don't run Fedora so I'm not sure of the package naming.

    Look for the ones listed below:

    qt-lib-devel
    qt-devel
    python-devel

    I have tried a few things and made no real headway yet. Using:
    rpm -qi qt
    I have ascertained that qt 3.3.4 is installed. I then used yum to install qt-devel, but could not find qt-lib-devel anywhere. python-devel is also installed.

    If qt 3.3.4 is installed, why is there an error?

    You are still missing some devel packages.
    Check for things like libqt-dev, qt3-dev, and so forth.

    St Joe,

    I could not find rpms for either of those packages, nor could I find them using yum. Does the error message say that I need them? If so, how do I get a hold of them?

    Yes, the error message says you need them:

    Code:
    checking for Qt... configure: error: Qt (>= Qt 3.3) (headers and libraries) not found. Please check your installation!
    Headers and libraries are the development packages. So we need to get all of them installed.

    My best guess would be going to your Yum repositories and searching for all Qt packages and installing lib and devel packages.

    It looks like I have reached the same point I always reach when I try to install by source. None of my yum repositories turned up those development libraries. I cannot find rpms for them. Thus, I cannot install them as I do not know any other way of doing so.

    I am at an impasse.

    Try, as root:
    Code:
    yum search qt
    Take a look through that list and see if there's anything pertinent that doesn't have "Installed" by it...

    Hi old bloke,

    I ran that yum command and could not see anything that looked pertinent. Could not see any libraries.
