it's running now :-)

(I just started it up, didn't test anything, but it started. I'll see how it 
works in the next days...)

So as much as I understand, those are the problems (on my System):

	- "unsermake" must be uninstalled despite eventual conflicts
	- "exiv2" other versions must be uninstalled

side notes:

"unsermake" gets automatically installed again on Suse, as soon as one 
installs just anything with Yast. So one has to think that after each install 
(no matter what) one has to de-install unsermake again before compiling 

I have been updating all kde stuff to the latest 3.5.5 today and then got a 
configure: error: you need to install kdelibs first. In fact kdelibs has been 
installed, but the qt3 stuff had to be updatet, too. (Yast didn't tell me 
that the existing qt-libs dont work with the updated kde-devel etc.). After 
updating qt3 packages configure/make run correct.

regarding my old exiv2: that time I compiled it I used checkinstall instead of 
make install to have a rpm. So I can deinstall it now for testing digikam and 
reinstall it when using ufraw....

have a nice evening
