Subject Re: [Firebird-general] OT: QT framework v4.5 to be released under LGPL
Author Peter Nunn
Hi Thomas,

can you give me a hint where the firebird driver is hidden for QT4? I have
been looking all over for it and hacking the build spec from my Mandriva
system to try and get it to work, but without a lot of success to date.

Any pointers/example code would be greatly appreciated also.
