With most Linux distributions, this version of Qt no longer is
included or maintained and must be obtained from the TDE repositories. Because
this version of Qt is now maintained exclusively to support TDE, the version supported
by TDE developers is not backwards compatible with the original version from Trolltech.</p></td></tr></tbody></table><table width="100%" class="bottom-nav"><tr><td width="33%" align="left" valign="top" class="navLeft"><a href="introduction.php">Prev</a></td><td width="34%" align="center" valign="top" class="navCenter"><a href="index.php">Home</a></td><td width="33%" align="right" valign="top" class="navRight"><a href="install.php">Next</a></td></tr><tr><td width="33%" align="left" class="navLeft">Introduction</td><td width="34%" align="center" class="navCenter"><a href="index.php">Up</a></td><td width="33%" align="right" class="navRight">Installation instructions</td></tr></table>
