I had a viewer ask if they could donate to help support one of the projects, so I’ve added a PayPal donation button on the top right. Donations are certainly appreciated but by no means compulsory.

Qt4 4.7.0 and qt-creator 2 for Centos and RHEL 5.5

Filed under: Centos,qt,Tools — jfreivald @ 7:53 pm

I’ve updated the x86_64 and i386 repositories to Qt 4.7.0 and qt-creator 2.0.1.

UPDATE [6 OCT, 11:34]: This morning I finally added Yum groups to the repository, so all you have to do for the base library is (as root):
yum groupinstall Qt4
and for the development environment:
yum groupinstall Qt4-Devel
The mysql and postgresql packages do not install by default because they pull a bunch of extra libraries if you don’t have the databases already installed, so you might also want to include:
yum install qt4-postgresql qt4-mysql

If you are doing any application debugging you may want to install qt4-debuginfo as well:
yum install --enablerepo qt4-debuginfo

NOTE: I’ve changed the 32 bit packages to be optimized for i686, which might register conflicts against the old i386 packages. If that happens, uninstall the conflicting i386 packages using ‘rpm -e –nodeps ‘, which will keep dependencies from preventing the uninstall. Then install the new packages as normal.

If this causes too much headache then I can create a separate repository for each. Let me know.

These packges were created on Centos 5.5 but should be completely compatible with RedHat Enterprise Linux 5.5.
