>> No speed is not acceptable, is fun to show your FR to your linux friend saying "hey
i've got kde4 on my phone!!" but if they ask you to open the menu or to start
something, the magic is gone.

my 'old' neo1973 it took less than a minute to fully start plasma, and while slow, I
think for many things the speed was quite acceptable on a neo freerunner. Running a
full kde session (with kwin as window manager) doesn't make any sense anyway on such
small screens, as kwin was never designed for something like that, but just running
kde applications works quite well.

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?
