we need qtopia to find the compiler (symlinks & path)

 $ cd path-to/gumstix-oe/tmp/cross/bin ; for f in arm-angstrom-linux-gnueabi-*; do n=$(echo $f|cut -b 28-); ln -s $f arm-linux-$n; done
 $ PATH=$PATH:path-to/gumstix-oe/tmp/cross/bin/ ; export PATH


download and unpack

 $ wget ftp://ftp.trolltech.com/qtopia/source/qtopia-opensource-src-4.3.1.tar.gz
 $ tar xfzv qtopia-opensource-src-4.3.1.tar.gz


configure, make and make install

 $ mkdir qtopia-platform ; cd qtopia-platform
 $ ../qtopia-opensource-4.3.1/configure -separate-debug-info -little-endian -edition platform -xplatform arm -arch arm -no-telephony -prefix /qtopia 
 $ make ; make install


tar image and move it to gumstix

 $ cd image ; tar cfv ~/qtopia-platform.tar .
 gumstix: $ mkdir /media/cf/qtopia ; tar xvf qtopia-platform.tar -C /media/cf/qtopia ; ln -s /media/cf/qtopia/ /qtopia


qtopia needs libstdc++, move it to your gumstix's /lib or somewhere it can be found

 $ cd path-to/gumstix-oe/tmp/staging/arm-angstrom-linux-gnueabi/lib/
 $ tar cfv ~/libstdc++.tar libstdc++.so*
 libstdc++.so
 libstdc++.so.6
 libstdc++.so.6.0.8
 gumstix: $ tar xvf libstdc++.tar -C /lib


set variables for qtopia & run
