#275 closed defect (fixed)

Qt 4.7.3 yum install as the preferred method

Reported by: Machster Owned by:
Priority: minor Milestone: Qt 5
Component: General Version: 4.7.3
Severity: medium Keywords:


I installed a fresh Qt4 install in Ecomstation 2.1 using yum. Installation was verified by downloading and successfully opening a few apps. However, half of the apps I installed did not open at all. For example the web browsers Surfer and QtWeb?.

I uninstalled the yum installation and manually installed the Qt files to the root of my drive and modified config.sys. From then on all of the apps I had installed launched perfectly.

This above was repeated twice with the same results. Yum install seems to be an issue with [at least] eComstation 2.1.

Which apps did not work, exactly? And what parts of Qt did you install using yum?

Most likely, you didn't install some part required by the application. In such case, this is a problem of the application, not Qt or Yum. To solve this problem, the author of the application should either make it available through yum (in this case all requirements will be installed automatically) or properly list what packages need to be installed with yum install for his application.

Since you mention QtWeb?, then probably the package that you need is libqt4-webkit. Try to do the following:

yum install libqt4-webkit

to see if it solves your problem.
