KDE on scratchbox for maemo 5

This describes how to compile KDE applications on Scratchbox so they can be run on a Nokia N900. A N900 runs Maemo 5. You need to install Qt, kdesupport, kdelibs and kdepimlibs before you can run KDE applications.


[edit] How it goes

cd qt-everywhere-opensource-src-4.6.2
./configure --prefix=/usr && make && make install
