Anyone Use Suse 10.0 For Z Dev?...
« on: December 03, 2005, 10:19:25 pm »
- I snagged SUSE 10.0, Fedora 4, and Debian "sarge" is downloading right now, but the torrents from cdimage.debian.org aren't getting any real bandwidth, so it's going to take a coon's age to finish both DVDs (three days for the second at a paltry 11KB/s).  Since I've never used any distro but Red Hat I'm going to try Fedora last.  Since SUSE is done downloading I'd like to try that first.

- BUT if it's not a good distro for Z dev, it's not in the running, and I'll have to wait 'til Debian gets done (or someone points me to better torrents [nudge, wink]).  Perhaps I shouldn't be trying to download the whole ball o' wax up front?  (shrug)  I vastly prefer offline installations, but over 8GB is quite a bit, and I don't strictly have to do that if there's "a better way", ie, one that gets Debian up without waiting three days!  (snicker)

- Thanks for your time...

Personally I have had no problems doing development for the Z under SuSE 10.0 .  I have been able to cross compile kernels and applications quick and easy using the How-To guides on the user group website.  The only thing I have not tried doing is cross compiling Qtopia apps, everything that I have compiled has been console based.  But I would recommend giving SuSE a go, it does a lot of other things well besides Z dev too.

Hello.
Did you compile it from command line or in KDevelop IDE?
I cannot configure KDevelop 3 while QDIR variable setted to the qt3 and if I reassign it then KDE is failed to start.  

Thank you.

I have also been using Suse 10, and while I am not developing anything in KDevelop - its all Python/PyQT apps - I have faced a problem in building the IPK with ipkg-build script that worked perfectly on my older Redhat 9.0 box.

Now when I do the IPKG build I get an error and it bombs out - everytime.
This happens on all IPK's that I try to build.

Is there something I am missing here ?
Thanks for any help...
