I've tried to install Qt extended 4.4 onto my SD, so I still have Qt 4.3
to fall back on until I'm satisfied with 4.4 What happens when I boot
is that the kernel appears to boot correctly and I can connect via USP
but the display manager never starts. I can however see that qpe is
working hard, as is hald, but not at all clear what they are doing.
Possible issues that I can see:
Converting the jffs2 image into a tarball, I could find no clear
instructions. I mounted the image via a loopback device and created a
> tar -czf ~/qtopia-4.4.1-gta02-rootfs-10011058.tar.gz <mountpoint>/*
I can imagine that there may be some other options to the tar command
that may resolve some issue.
The other potential problem that I can see is that Qt wants to be
installed on a flash chip. I applied the fix described here:
However it's not clear that the same fix works for Qt extended.
