Description Matthew Woehlke 2007-01-12 18:24:14 EST
Description of problem:
KDE 3.5.5 is unable to locate the Qt documentation; as a result, it is not
possible to build KDE API documentation ("make apidox").

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
KDE - 3.5.5 stable sources (as downloaded from kde.org)
Qt - 3.3.6-13 (as released with fc6)

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install KDE prerequisites
2. Install qt-devel-docs
3. Try to get KDE's 'configure' to find Qt's docs so that KDE's API docs can be
built (QTDOCDIR != no, KDE_HAVE_DOXYGEN != no)
Actual results:
configure cannot find Qt docs, as a result:
$ make apidox
make: nothing to be done for 'apidox'

Expected results:
configure finds Qt docs, 'make apidox' does something

Additional info:
This is caused by fc6 choosing an unusual (and non-standard) location for Qt's
documentation, i.e. "/usr/share/doc/qt-devel-3.3.6".

Fixed by:
$ ln -s /usr/share/doc/qt-devel-3.3.6 $QTDIR/doc
...or by installing the doc into one of the "standard" locations, i.e.:
$QTDIR/doc/html /usr/share/doc/packages/qt3/html /usr/lib/qt/doc
/usr/lib/qt3/doc /usr/lib/qt3/doc/html /usr/doc/qt3/html /usr/doc/qt3
/usr/share/doc/qt3-doc /usr/sha
re/qt3/doc/html /usr/X11R6/share/doc/qt/html
