I'm working with the debian/experimental package.

Seems that there is only one issue in the Qt package and that is the
adoption of the new version

I know that it's split but not enough for a mobile device. I know also
it's not easy push more than 60Mb of debug symbols in a device in order to
The best way to debug Qt is running a gdbserver into device and run
