How difficult is it to compile an existing application that I know is already compiled for linux and windows? The application I have mind is QuiteRSS 0.13.0 RSS/Atom feed reader written on Qt/С++ www.code.google.com/p/quite-rss/ This I love to bits - so I want a version for Pi. From this page www.code.google.com/p/quite-rss/wiki/Packages It appears to be available for Arch Linux openSUSE, Mandriva & Fedora Ubuntu Connection and installation: sudo add-apt-repository ppa:quiterss/quiterss sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install quiterss
Which looks promising. Don't mid if takes hours compiling on pi - rather avoid having to set up seperate cross compiling box.
