I just wanted to try out PyQt/E on iPAQ using
the ipkg packages from Phil Thompson.

Problem: I can't import qt. This is why:

--- on ipaq ---
>>> import qt
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "<stdin>", line 1, in ?
  File "/tmp/arm-linux.20350/lib/python2.2/site-packages/qt.py", line 44,
in ?
ImportError: /usr/lib/libqte.so.2: undefined symbol: pnG_push_crc_finish

Yo, welcome to the dynamic library hell... I guess libqte.so is trying
to lookup this symbol from a PNG library... but wait: libqte is supposed
to have the PNG included, isn't it? It seems the binary of the qte library
in the ipaq familiar linux is not out of the box compatible with the qte
library you used when compiling qte - which is a major problem for me...
and which brings me to the important question:
Phil, which qte library did you link against when compiling pyqte for the

On a (slightly related) side note: Does anyone know how to find out which
compiler was used to compile a certain binary file?

Did anyone manage to get a working PyQtE environment on the Compaq iPAQ
yet? If so, how? I have just managed to get a working gcc environment
on my iPAQ but I'm hesitating to compile all the stuff by hand... it would
take ages...
