Qt 5.0.1 install failed on Mac OS X 10.6.8
I just tried to install Qt 5.0.1 (complete) under Mac OS X 10.6.8. Some problems:
The download says it's Qt 5.0.1, but the installer says it's Qt 5.0.0.
I get the following error when running the installer. I clicked "Ignore" and continued.
Error while relocating Qt: Command install_name_tool failed.

- When I start Qt Creator, it says that the Help plugin has an error and can't be installed, with this error message:
/Users/bkovitz/opt/Qt5.0.0/Qt Creator.app/Contents/PlugIns/QtProject/libHelp.dylib: Cannot load library /Users/bkovitz/opt/Qt5.0.0/Qt Creator.app/Contents/PlugIns/QtProject/libHelp.dylib: (dlopen(/Users/bkovitz/opt/Qt5.0.0/Qt Creator.app/Contents/PlugIns/QtProject/libHelp.dylib, 5): Symbol not found: _kCFWebServicesProviderDefaultDisplayNameKey

- In Qt Creator, I went to Tutorials and clicked "Building and Running an Example Application". This brought up some icons, or at least an image depicting a few icons. The mouse cursor turns into a pointing hand when I mouse over it, suggesting that clicking it should do something. But when I click it, there is no response.
What do you recommend? I am new to Qt, and figured I'd get started with the current version. Would I be wise to start with Qt 4.8?
This is a known issue; see http://qt-project.org/wiki/Qt500KnownIssues. If you want to use Qt 5 on OS X 10.6 you'll have to compile it from source.
If you're new to Qt I would personally recommend starting with Qt 4.8 as there are a lot of bugs in the 5.x series that will need to be ironed out over the next few patch releases, while 4.8 is quite stable. Have fun learning Qt!
Thanks! I'll switch to Qt 4.8.
