Subject Re: proposed student project? desktop integration for debian
Date Tue, 02 Sep 2014 03:30:25 GMT
I am not sure how hard would that be but you can easily setup an
environment using a virtualbox with whatever os you need (debian,
suse, fedora, or... gulp... windows) and just compile there.

Sure virtual environments are not the best location to do your
compilation, however it will get you the basic toolkit set and version
that you need.

Another more sofisticated option is to use vagrant. Vagrant is aimed
for developers that want to have an encapsulating environment, and
portable (able to move it between different distros). It does uses
virtualization but in a different fashion.
