But you haven't even explained at all -- are you missing
things like header files or getting compiler errors?
Or "Internal compiler errors?" (usually those mean
bad memory)? I compile things *all* the time, but I've
haven't tried to build KDE from the deb src, so that
package may just have a bug or you are missing a bunch
If you would just cut and paste error messages, we could
actually help you...
No, potato seems great as a development environment, I use it
