[maemo-developers] [maemo-developers] Porting Qt to Maemo

today I did a little test with Qt and Maemo 2.2 SDK. I recompiled Qt
4.2.2 into the Scratchbox with maemo 2.2 installed and I was able to
run a little Qt-HelloWorld inside the "emulator".

I wonder if it would be possible to realize a real port of Qt into
Maemo and make it run on Nokia 770/800.

In my opinion this could be possible.

We should strip out parts that are not necessary, for example:
examples, documentation, headers and possibly other stuff like opengl,
variuos db drivers ecc.... we should try to reduce the size the most
we can.

Once this is done, we could also write application using Qt/C++ and
not only GTK/C.

What do you think about this? Anyone is interested in this project and
want to help me?

Best regards,
