I've just installed a PowerPC Linux with glibc 2.2.5/Blackdown jdk 1.3.1/qt-mt 
on my new Apple iBook, and both QtJava and KDE java work fine, with or 
without the '-classic' option. And the new Keramic style looks great on the 
java apps, KDE is really getting quite pretty!

But I had to build the bindings and KDE with gcc 2.95, because KDE wouldn't 
start up when I built it with gcc 3.2.1. It seemed to be something to do with 
dynamic casts seg faulting. But the same compiler worked fine on my iMac with 
an older Linux with glibc 2.2.3 - weird. So I've just downloaded gcc 3.2.2, 
and I'll see if that works - I hope it does because I'm keen to get gcj 
working and build/install suitable gcj interface libs for the bindings by
