Problem compiling Paraview 3.12.0 (ThirdParty-2.1.1) in Fedora 17 (64 bit)
Hi all,

After installing the dependency packages" suggested in the Openfoam website


sudo yum groupinstall 'Development Tools'
sudo yum install openmpi openmpi-devel qt-devel qt-webkit-devel zlib-devel
I am able to compile OpenFOAM 2.1.1 successfully in Fedora 17.

Then I tried to compile ParaView (./makeParaView), but i get the following error

*** Error: cannot find qmake either at $QMAKE_PATH or in current $PATH

What might be the issue?
