It should probably be 4.3.x currently (4.4 has not yet seen a Beta
release). I don't know how SuSE packages Qt, but usually the various
bits are split across multiple packages, i.e. one for the libraries, one
for the header files and another one for developer apps like designer.
In Debian there's even a separate package for each designer version
(qt3-designer vs. qt4-designer).

A search in Yast should help finding it, in any way I'm pretty sure SuSE
does ship the Qt4 version of designer, its part of the Qt4 sources which
they use to build the packages.

No, designer uses teh same versioning numbers as Qt itself, only the
qmake buildtool has its own version numbers.


You have a strong appeal for members of your own sex.
