The LyX your are trying to start wants to use an older version of Qt than the one that was used when LyX was compiled. This may e.g. happen when you use a self-compiled recent version of Qt to build LyX and on startup it picks up the older system version. Setting LD_LIBRARY_PATH apropriately helps in those cases.
