You see yesterday I received an email mentioning a prototype interface for some app we're working. Unfortunatly it uses SVG, and my browser konqueror doesn't currently have support.
I did find a project svg.kde.org that purports to provide a SVG renderer. Unfortunatly it requires the cvs version of kde.
There are debian packages, but they're for x86 and I need powerpc, which means rebuilding kde.
However my laptop is slow and I wanted to try and use distcc to distribute the compliation accross my machines at work. That unfortunatly would require a cross-compiler (which again I would have to build).
I went from wanting to view a little web app to trying to rebuild huge chunks of my software.
