Prerequisites for the HBasic base package
Before you can install or compile HBasic you have to install two libraries
needed as a prerequisite. If this libraries have already been installed on
your computer you may skip this section.
The first is libdl.so which is used for dynamically linking the
modules which extend HBasic with new components. This library should
already exist in a normal LINUX installation.
The second library is Qt (libqt.so) in a version >= 3.0. HBasic
needs the version >= 3.0 because database access through Qt is only
possible starting at version 3.0.
You can download the sourcecode for this libraries from the following internet
If you install this prerequisites from the sourcecode follow the installation
instructions of this software packages.
If you you want to install this software from binary rpm packages you may
them on your distribution CDROM or in the internet (for example at www.rpmfind.net).
The normal qt-rpm package may not include everything needed
for HBasic. Some distributions put the database plugins or the lupdate and
lrelease programs needed to compile translations into separate packages. It
may be required to additionally install the qt-devel package or qt-designer
package where RedHat for example has put the lupdate and lrelease programs.
