Upgrading qt on rh9

I've upgraded my installation of qt to 3.2, but now when I try to compile programs to install them, they complain that the version of qt that KDE was compiled with and the version that is installed are different. Is there a relatively painless way I can update kde? I would like to avoid installing it from source so that apps that come in rpms will be able to resolve their dependencies correctly. I'm running rh9.

Hi scibberme,

download latest rpm (KDE) and install it with -u (upgrade) option

To update all RPMs for your particular architecture, run:

rpm -Fvh [filenames]

where [filenames] is a list of the RPMs you wish to upgrade. Only those
RPMs which are currently installed will be updated. Those RPMs which are
not installed but included in the list will not be updated. Note that you
can also use wildcards (*.rpm) if your current directory *only* contains the
desired RPMs.

also KDE update is also available via Red Hat Network. Many
people find this an easier way to apply updates. To use Red Hat Network,
launch the Red Hat Update Agent with the following command:


This will start an interactive process that will result in the appropriate
RPMs being upgraded on your system.

I think I might not have been clear with my question. I know how to use rpm, and I don't want to update KDE to another, incompatible, version, or apply patches. What I want to do is make KDE use a version of qt I choose, specifically 3.2, without having to recompile the whole thing from source, or otherwise remove it from the rpm database. Thanks for the info anyway though.
yes u can do that. please follow the instruction in this page.
do u need more help.

Thanks to everyone for at least trying, but no one really understood what I was asking. Redhat has released rpms of KDE 3.2 compiled with qt-3.2.2, so I guess it's a moot point now. I solved my own problem by downloading first fedora core.
