No..I haven't tried that. Thanks.
the Qt version comes with the distro is lower than  our requirement. (eg: 
PyQt-x11-gpl-4.0 will ask for qt4 not qt3. am I correct?)

Hmmm, I am a SuSE10.2 users and if I am not wrong , SuSE10.2 ships qt3 which 
support most programs within the distro and those programs might not work 
well with qt4, my required version).
