[PyKDE] Importing Problem (somewhat long)

Hello everyone,

I'm sorry if you get this twice. I sent it from the wrong account the 
first time (one that isn't subscribed to the list). Anyway, I spent a 
good bit of the day looking for an answer to this that actually worked. 
Quick specs:

Linux-based (kernel 2.4.20)
Python 2.2.2
GCC 3.2.1
Glibc 2.3.1
PyQT 3.5
QT 3.1.1
SIP 3.5
QScintilla 1.49

I've compiled / installed everything without error, but I'm getting the 
following error when importing qt:

Python 2.2.2 (#1, Dec 31 2002, 09:20:52)
[GCC 3.2.1 (CRUX)] on linux2
Type "help", "copyright", "credits" or "license" for more information.
 >>> import qt
Traceback (most recent call last):
   File "<stdin>", line 1, in ?
   File "/usr/lib/python2.2/site-packages/qt.py", line 39, in ?
     import libqtc
ImportError: /usr/lib/python2.2/site-packages/libqtcmodule.so: undefined 
symbol: _ZNK16QAssistantClient9classNameEv

I've found a few references in the mailing list about this and they all 
spoke of installing QT without the prefix option. I've done this 
(multiple times) I've installed it with the prefix option (again, 
multiple times). I'm not exactly sure what I'm doing wrong.

'ldd' shows that libqtcmodule.so.1.0.0 is linked against the correct qt 
library on my system:

     libqt-mt.so.3 => /usr/lib/qt3/lib/libqt-mt.so.3 (0x4073a000)

On my most recent compile of QT, I used this configuration:

/root/qt-x11-commercial-3.1.1/configure -release -shared -qt-gif 
-system-zlib -no-fast -platform linux-g++ -thread -nis -stl 
-system-libpng -system-libjpeg -system-libmng -no-nas-sound 
-plugin-imgfmt-png -plugin-imgfmt-jpeg -plugin-imgfmt-mng -sm -xft 
-tablet -xkb -no-exceptions -plugin-sql-mysql -L/usr/lib/mysql 

The only difference in my configures of QT has been the inclusion or 
exclusion of 'prefix /usr/lib/qt3'

I installed in the following order:

I'm still pretty new to programming and all its wonderful joys, so 
hopefully there is someone that can assist me. My apologies for the 
length of this message, and any assistance would be greatly appreciated.
