Today, I had a closer look at cross-compiling PyQt. And everything I can tell at the moment is: It's a horror. Compiling Python 2.7.3 is really easy considering this Howto: http://randomsplat.com/id5-cross-com...ded-linux.html

But PyQt is so incompatible to cross-compiling. No native parameters for HOST or TARGET and BUILD. And just scan through all those patches here: https://bitbucket.org/dboddie/pyqt4-...linux/overview Unfortunately some of them are not fitting the latest version of PyQt, so you will have to check out each one yourself... that's not exactly fun.

I can't believe, cross-compiling PyQt is so damn hard. Isn't Qt about cross-platform compatibility etc? So if somebody runs into a solution to this problem, I would really love to see it...

EDIT:
On M92 we have version 4.7.3 of Qt. Unfortunately that's not compatible with the most recent version of PyQt (4.9.1). So it'd be cool to know where to get older versions of PyQt, 4.8.X preferably...
