As I try to build apps based on QT3/KDE/QT4 I run into several problems. Qtractor and Traverso need qt4 devel packages to build libqt4-dev is not installable due to trivial dependency-conflicts Rosegarden needs KDE-dev but if I install this I need to de-install XFCE first So I switched to KDE and will try to build XFCE from scratch to get back my standard-desktop. Is there anybody aware of this problems?

Try activating the testing and backports repositories - # Bleeding edge 64 Studio repository, only for testers! deb 64studio main # Backports repository, needed to get -dev packages deb etch-backports main These should be available in your synaptic repository selector. If not, add them...

I tried to hack the situation by simply forcing the install of qt4devel and coying its files so apt cannot erase them, if I later allow it to repair its database. Yet to no avail: /usr/bin/ld: cannot find -lQtXml qtractors configure script does not complain anymore but make fails to find a component in QT4-devel it needs. The stupid hack I performed does not help anyway: -- Traverso 0.42.0 will be built to install into /usr/local -- Program pkg-config found (/usr/bin/pkg-config) CMake Error: Could NOT find QtCore. copying some files into /usr/include is one thing hacking pkgconfig is most different so I give in here and hope, these dependency-issues will be fixed so I dont need to switch to Ubuntustudio to have these apps running. I´d really would prefer to stay with 64Studio for its superior performance though...
