I’ve decided to build kde4 trunk on my computer again. For this, one of the first steps was to get qt 4.8 running. As the debian repositories only contained qt 4.6, I had to build and instal qt for myself. I created a user named “kdedev” and a build and src directory in his home directory.
- get the QT sources and place it under /home/kdedev/src : git clone git://anongit.kde.org/qt
- Change into the result qt directory and configure qt: .configure -no-phonon -prefix <where/I/install/Qt>
- make install
voila, you have your working qt trunk installed in the home directory of a local user account…
