Hey, that's a good question....

I'm in the process of trying to compile something that s a y s that it needs QT.
However, trying to get it seems a little ridiculous... There's a form that Trolltech wants you to fill out (or am I talking about something completely differrent?) - and that's just for the "trial version" - it's enough to make me wonder about the app that I'm trying to compile... Why would they include something that isn't free as a pre-req for comiling? I'm gonna try it anyways....

(computer barfs out of anxiety, fear of what lies ahead for it... Shocked

Please let us know if you come up with anything klhrevolutionist Cool

No pup has a cutdown Qt, it is not the qt needed for a lot of interesting apps!!!
ok so barry admits it is cut down, well barry, you think you could find it in your
little puppy heart to give us the whole thing I admit I can't compile worth a s**
But thanks to your distro I am learning things I never knew before!!!
maybe setup a server on a specific day for people to get, you know
first come, well I would share with people!!!

pppplease

I guess that I just don't understand...


Qt is not open source, or "free" for any purpose, right?

Or am I right off my rocker? How did you include it in Puppy - was it just included regardless of the "owners" wishes? (and I use the term sarcastically)...

I am confused...

Perhaps there is yet another version of QT, asides from the 2 offered through Trolltech?


Or did I stumble across a web scam? I can't seem to find the source anywhere - but then again, -

my pet monkey seems to have better luck with searching for anying lately then me (maybe my eye's are going?) Very Happy

Trolltech sell Qt for use on Windows, but for Linux it's free, or maybe only free if the application is free ...or something like that. Qt is open source, so we can compile it.

Qt in Puppy is cutdown in the sense that some support executables and extra libraries are missing, though you will find some of them in the usr_devx.sfs file.
Applications should work with the Qt library provided in Puppy -- if one doesn't, I'm surprised, and will need to know just what else it needs.

Um, you probably need the next alpha release of usr_devx.sfs, has lots of little bug fixes. ...soon, soon.

Regarding -lpthread, two possibilities.
Most likely is that /lib/libpthread.so is missing. It should be a symlink:

# cd /lib
# ln -s libpthread-0.10.so libpthread.so
...er, no, problem is that will disappear when you reboot.
Do it this way:
# cd /usr/lib
# ln -s /lib/libpthread-0.10.so libpthread.so

That's the solution if libpthread.so is missing.

The other possibility is that it wants libpthread.a, for a static compile,
which ain't there.

Barry, I have a hard drive install so that should work.

I can't wait to try that - thank you verry, verry much for the help, I'm lost here without helpfull guidance.

I'm stuck on Debian for today, as I just started the 4 cd download of Slackware (I'm just curious, tried every other "major" flavor I think) - but will follow your instuctions as soon as possible.

Cheers Very Happy

EDIT:

I've taken a look in /lib by mounting my Puppy partition inside Debian.
I have

libpthread-0.10.so
libthread_db-1.0.so
libpthread.so.0 (symlink)
libpthread.so.0 (symlink)

So I'm thinking that it must be libthread (a) that you mentioned that is missing
Crying or Very sad

Will it be included in the next usr_devx.sfs? (or, how would I go about getting it?)

Very Happy

bancobusto,
libpthread.so is only a symlink, you create it as instructed in my last post.
They may fix your problem, so you won't need the next usr_devx.sfs.
