Yes, it can be done, but maybe your --with-QTDIR whatever stuff wasn't
clever enough to resolve all the problems. Try it with prefix=/usr and see
if that takes care of it.
If that last minute silly idea fails, move on to the original message I
In spite of your showing how it appears to all be installed, it isn't all
installed. The error you're getting usually means you don't have the
correct headers available.
Something like this is going to come down to a Mandrake-specific remedy, and
I really can't offer one. On Debian, the -mt headers are in a separate
-dev package that can't be installed at the same time as the non-mt -dev
package. You're not running Debian, so you're going to have to dig in and
figure out what's missing. See if there isn't some additional,
supplemental -devel package you don't have installed.
If you've ascertained that you've installed every conceivable libqt3
package, and the installation *can't* be broken (unless the packages
themselves are, which is probably pretty unlikely), then try hacking the
configure script to remove this failing test. (Search for the error
string. You'll find the right bit of the script to comment out.)
That will let you get through the configure and on to an attempt to build
the program. It may well work. I've actually had legitmate cause to do
this before, and everything compiled perfectly. If it does work, then it
probably indicates an autoconf problem with Kate or whatever it was you
said you were compiling.
If it doesn't work, then your QT installation is broken, and if you've done
both of the above, it's time to start ing at Mandrake I guess.
