SQLite Database Browser on CentOS6

Working through Michael Hartl's Ruby on Rails Tutorial, chapter 6 calls for the SQLite Database Browser.

Just wanted to put a note out there for anyone building this on CentOS6: make sure you check the version of qt that your qmake command runs against.

The below commands show how to check which version you're using, and run the correct one to build Sqlite Database Browser.

check installed qt versions
[user@dev-workstation sqlitebrowser]$ which qmake
[user@dev-workstation sqlitebrowser]$ ls /usr/lib64/qt*
bin  include  lib  mkspecs  phrasebooks  plugins  translations

bin  mkspecs  phrasebooks  plugins  q3porting.xml

confirm qt4/bin/qmake is there
[user@dev-workstation sqlitebrowser]$ ls /usr/lib64/qt4/bin/qmake

commands to run to build Sqlite Database Browser
[user@dev-workstation sqlitebrowser]$ /usr/lib64/qt4/bin/qmake
[user@dev-workstation sqlitebrowser]$ make

after building, move to your ~/bin folder and enjoy
[user@dev-workstation sqlitebrowser]$ cp sqlitebrowser ~/bin/
[user@dev-workstation sqlitebrowser]$ which sqlitebrowser
[user@dev-workstation sqlitebrowser]$ sqlitebrowser &
[user@dev-workstation sqlitebrowser]$

hope this helps. :)

  1. Take a look on a free tool -- Valentina Studio. Amazing product! IMO this is the best manager for SQLite for all platforms.
