C++ GUI applications don't compile on x86-64 FC4 and FC5 in KDevelop
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:24 EST
Description of problem:
C++ applications for gui (QT based) applications written in KDevelop will not
compile on x86-64 FC5. Configure (created by Automake) is looking for KDE and QT
libraries in the wrong location. See config.log file attached. On my system FC5
installs these libraies in /usr/lib64 rather than /usr/lib. Compilation doesn't
get as far as make but fails on configure with an error stating KDE libraries
are not installed. An inspection of config.log shows why this occurred.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
KDevelop 3.3.1 (x86-64)
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open KDevelop: KDE/C++ and create a new project based on either the Simple
KDE Application or Simple Designer Based KDE Application. (This is a 'Hello
2. Run 'Build Project'
3. Answer 'Run Them' to 'Build Automake and Friends'
The messages window produces the following output (extract only)
checking for KDE...
in the prefix, you've chosen, are no KDE libraries installed. This will fail.
So, check this please and use another prefix!
*** Exited with status: 1 ***
Compilation should successfully finish with an executable program, which can be
run from selecting 'Start' on the 'Debug' menu
This problem existed on the release version of FC4 and from reading other posts
on fedoraforum.org since FC2/3
You can get around the problem by entering the following into the configure
arguments box on Project/Project Options/Configure Options:
--enable-debug=full --enable-libsuffix=64 --with-qt-dir=/usr/lib64/qt-3.3/
However, this has to be done for every project.

Fedora Core 5 and Fedora Core 6 are, as we're sure you've noticed, no longer
test releases. We're cleaning up the bug database and making sure important bug
reports filed against these test releases don't get lost. It would be helpful if
you could test this issue with a released version of Fedora or with the latest
development / test release. Thanks for your help and for your patience.
[This is a bulk message for all open FC5/FC6 test release bugs. I'm adding
myself to the CC list for each bug, so I'll see any comments you make after this
and do my best to make sure every issue gets proper attention.]
no feedback, closing.
