Missing SQL Drivers in QT 3.3.X?
« on: June 24, 2007, 11:40:05 am »

My concern is about a missing object since QT-3.3.3 version.

I run an application which uses MySQL & QT.  In the QT install of QT-3.3.4 & QT-3.3.5 there has been no '' located in the /usr/lib/QT-x-x-x/plugins/sqldrivers directory.  I therefore have to remove the QT pre-installed in VL 5.8 and manually add an old Slackware 10.1 repository to obtain QT-3.3.3 which has the plugin in place and MySQL-4-0.24a which I assume is the version where the MySQL headers used by the makefile in QT to build the above plugin comes from.

I attempted to gather the source, both current QT and current MySQL, for the versions available in VL 5.8 but failed in either getting the right stuff or the compile fails perhaps due to older GCC version which might not permit the plugin to be built period.

Any help or guidance would be appreciated.  Don't suppose just placing the QT-3.3.3 version in the QT-3.3.5 directory would work since both QT and MySQL have undergone multiple version changes?

First, I moved your post from where it was originally posted, as it was not an appropriate reply for the topic of the Qt4 QCA. With that said, please post the terminal output of the following command in this thread:

Code: [Select]
cat /etc/vector-version
VL 6.0 SOHO latest alpha on one box, VL 5.9 Lite on the other.
