You will need the following components (and their libraries) installed to compile from source code:
A running MySQL server
QT3 compiled with both thread and MySQL support enabled
Ogg and Vorbis libraries if you want Ogg support
Here is what ldd tells on SuSE 8.1:

Redhat at least by 7.3 has MySQL in a separate rpm from qt-devel. To compile, you'll need both the qt-devel package and something like qt-MySQL-3.0.3-11.i386.rpm
SuSE missed some dependencies, which means that an installation of qt3-mysql.rpm not automatically causes an installation of mysql-shared.rpm and mysql-client.rpm.
This is the (hopefully) complete list of required packages:
Prokyon 0.9.2 or higher (or CVS snapshot) is needed to support the creation of the database if MySQL4 is used.
Basically any version above 3.0 will work. Please note that there was on-going improvement/bug fixes from Trolltech since the original release. More specifically, multi thread capability of some function was significantly improved. We have found qt3.1.1 (last available at the time of this release) to be more stable and robust than previous versions.
Prokyon3 can be compiled successfully using gcc 2.95 or 3.2. We recommend gcc 3.2 but other versions may work as well. If you are using g++ 3.XX you need to recompile all C++ libraries used by Prokyon3 are these are not binary compatible with g++ 2.XX libraries . C libraries are no problem. Currently, Prokyon3 requires 2 C++ libraries: QT3 and libid3. If you upgrade your compiler, your will need to recompile both libraries to successfully link Prokyon3.
Prokyon3 v0.9.1-r1 could not be compiled using gcc 3.3 (SuSE 8.2). The next version will compile as well as the current CVS version does ;-)
