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.

there are qt libraries available for raspberry pi, so basically it should be not very difficult, just download the source and ./configure && make && sudo make install and see what happens. you might get prompted to install dev. libraries for qt, though.
