Q. What do I need to compile KBooks?
A. You need a current Linux system. Glibc 2.1.x, XFree86 4.x, KDE3, and Qt3, as well as GCC 2.95 or greater (older versions may work, not tested) and the appropriate development libraries for each necessary package.
Q. Where do I get the KBooks source?
A. You can either download a source release or get a copy from the CVS server, either way, that information is located at the project page on SourceForge.net.
Q. How do I build from the CVS source?
A. Like this:
make -f Makefile.cvs (or Makefile.dist)
Q. Where do I get QT3 and KDE3?
A. You can find binary packages for major Linux distributions here at kde.org. If you want to compile from the source, you
can find QT 3.0.3 at TrollTech and KDE3 at kde.org.
Q. Why can't I use Qt2.x or KDE2.x?
A. We want to use the new features present in Qt3 and KDE3. Since KDE3 is now in stable release, so there's no reason to stick to developing with the old libs.
