    4545Note that the first two commands are not normally needed -- if you install a Qt application from the RPM repository, it will install all required Qt runtime variants automatically. These commands are only necessary if you have a Qt application distributed as a ZIP archive.

     51       If you accidentally forget to de-install the Qt !WarpIn packages, then you will definitely get a broken RPM installation because the '''libqt4''' package containing the core DLLs will fail to install (it will give you the corresponding message but it may scroll up before you can read it, if you install something big like '''qt4-devel-kit'''). In order to recover from such a failure, do the following:
     52             1. Remove all incorrectly installed Qt packages:
     53{{{
     54yum remove '*qt4*'
     55}}}
     56             2. De-install Qt 4 WPI packages with !WarpIn.
     57             3. Install the desired RPM package with yum again.

    5061We also provide two ZIP packages of the Qt toolkit for your convenience, if for some reason you cannot use RPM. They are described below.
