> The short answer is that kdeversion.h has been renamed to tdeversion.h. :) The longer answer is to browse the mailing list discussions of the past couple of days. I have been asking for clarification on the build process in order to update the wiki.

Thank you for your very detailed response and the information it 
contained. I decided, after your post to start from scratch (I'm using 
this as a learning exercise) but even with your info I'm still having 
problems marrying the QT/TQT thing.

I've installed TQt (qt3-3.5.13.tar.gz source) into /opt/qt, tqtinterface 
into /usr, dbus-tqt & dbus-1-tqt (both with --prefix /usr), sip4-tqt 
and  tqscintilla.

python-tqt however seems to be confused about what is installed and 
where. More than likely my configuration that's causing the problem!


'python' results in 'Error: No TQt libraries could be found 
in /opt/qt/lib'
'python -q /usr' results in 'Error: Unable to open 

etc, etc.

Obviously I don't need to build python-tqt but I would like to get a 
better understanding of what's going wrong.
