Hi Kelvie,

After discussed with few co-workers, we think that we should separate 
Qtopia Qt lib and Qt4 Qt lib and let them store at different places. 
When we would run qt applications, we can use
LD_LIBRARY_PATH to set qt lib. Currently, I use 'env' before running my AP.

About QMessageBox, I can run it correctly before I re-installing all qt 
related packages. But now, it wont show up and crash my AP. Now, I only 
install libQtCore, libQtGui, libQtNetwork, libQtWebKit, python-sip and 
python-pyqt. I guess I need to install more related Qt4 lib packages.
