Qt Creator on Raspberry Pi

Its been a week or so since I did anything with the Raspberry Pi but I received my stickers today which encouraged me to get the device out and hack together something.

One of the target markets for the device is in education so I thought that a small distribution built on Mer with QtCreator installed would provide an excellent introduction to Qt and QML programming.

As you can see from the video you get a basic desktop environment with xterm, qt-demos and qt-creator installed.

Very nice. Oh and is this KDE desktop running in the background? At least the clock seams to be familiar. If KDE is running on this thing it is absolutely awesome.

So cool !!! Is it possible to load the image with QEMU ?

That would be fun to load the system on any computer, develop for the RPi and then just transfer it on the RPi when the developement is done.

Thanks. That's also the first time i see the dos partition for Raspberry Pi. I suppose start.elf is the (famous) GPU blob file.

+for QEmu instructions.
It would be great to get a feel for how the pi runs etc.
Unfortunately I'm too much of a beginner to manage it myself.
