Plasma would be great on the FR IMHO, and I wanted to experiment with that, but
unfortunately qt4 doesn't yet build using openembedded.

I also am unable to do a succesful build of FSO since upgrading to ubuntu 8.10. gcc-4.3
is unable to build OE's gcc-native, and after switching to gcc-4.2 I cannot get past
compiling qemu-native. using ubuntu-provided qemu instead results in a crash. sigh. Very
demotivating. Hope this will be fixed soon.

Anyone else experiencing this in Ubuntu 8.10?
