Comment 5 Ngo Than 2005-06-27 08:34:46 UTC
It's now fixed in qt-3_3_3-9_4. I will upload the new version on
ftp:/ next day. If we do update for RHEL3, The fix will be 
included. Many thanks for your report.

Comment 6 A S Alam 2005-06-29 05:52:19 UTC
thanks for help
I have RHEL4 and Fedora Core 4, from where I get package  to install for any of one?

Comment 7 Ngo Than 2005-06-29 08:48:06 UTC
For RHEL4 you will find it on ftp:/ soon. And for FC4,
you could use the qt-3.3.4-16 from rawhide.

I plan to update qt-3.3.5 for FC4 soon. It's the reason why i don't want to do
qt update for FC4 now
