I've not seen any reports of problems with FC4 and QT on the list, but
I'd make sure the NVidia drivers are installed correctly (the report
you mention above looks ominous, although it might be normal!) I note
that atrpms.net seems to have a slightly newer QT version
which I guess you could try. (On my RHEL4 laptop, I think I'm using
qt-3.3.3-9.3 without issue).
