Tim, All, Looking at the git repository under main/dependencies I find both qt3 and tqt3. The first questions is do we want the build based on tqt3 or qt3? Both look fairly identical. Next, there were a number of standard kde and arch patches that were applied when I was building last year. I am sorting though them to find what has already made its way into the code. Does anyone have a list of what patches have already been applied to tqt3? For qt3 we were applying the following: gcc46-arch.diff qt-3.3.8-buffered-iconview.patch qt-3.3.8-eyecandy.patch qt-3.3.8-fix-qtextedit-vulnerability.diff qt-3.3.8-xinerama.patch qt-3.3.8-xinerama-qpopupmenu.diff qt-3.3.8-xmms-dynamic.patch qt-copy-kde-patches.tar.bz2 qt-odbc.patch qt-patches.tar.bz2 qt-png14.patch I will try to pick through these sets of patches and find out what will and won't apply any more over the next few days. If this has already been done, then please STOP ME, I hate reinventing the wheel. If not I'll go forward. It seems that the standard qt-3.3.8-xxxxx patches should have been committed to the tqt3 source, but that is what I need to discover. That's where I be... I would appreciate and help or wisdom on the patch issue if you have it. Thanks -- David C. Rankin, J.D.,P.E.
