I'm not an expert, but as a normal user, it looks like there is a conflict
between qt 3.0 and qt 3.0.4. Try removing the older version.
When su to root, it looks like it can't find the qt libraries. Did you install
them as root and not a user? Again, I'm no expert, but that could be
something to look at.
