Well you need support for it in Qt too. try doing a rpm -qa | grep qt 
and check if it has a sqllite module.

right. Without a database you can still view exif info for individual images.

Kipi is completely unrelated to the EXIF stuff
the --enable-sqldb is to enable the code for the sql backend I gave up on 
(thus also completely unrelated)

| sqlite..  How do I check that?
yes that is likely your problem. In Suse this is a separate RPM package, I 
dont know about fedora.
