I am trying to load an app that needs QtWebKit. (Actually, it needs the
Python binding PyQt). I’m running OpenSuse 11.0 and I have Qt and PyQt,
but not Qtwebkit.
From what I can tell, QtWebKit is excluded from all versions of Qt
available through a yast repository, but I am not sure if there is a
conflict with khtml or some other reason it would have been excluded.
I will probably try to install Qt straight from Trolltech to get

finally, i went into qtwebkit directory in pyqt, ran the makefile for
that subdirectory only, it created the .so .sip files no problem. I then
ran make install and it installed them no problem.
I have no idea why main makefile was unable to do this, but my problem
