Krita portable.

Boudewijn, yes a tar.gz would be just fine if it runs out of the box
with minimal extra libs to install. That would be quite amazing

Thank you to all of you for taking this so seriously. Who knows, soon
I might be able to do an interview in Linux mag or the likes signing
your praises. :)

I'm working on a short film outside of work right now, so I have very
little time for my beloved 'nerd out' time. So if I do not reply
quickly please don't take it the wrong way. I will be monitoring this
and attempting to compile Krita for centos 5 on my own as well. Of
course I will let you know if I have any success. But it's more likely
I'll be screaming for help instead. :P

Also I think there would be business in commercially providing,
supporting and developing Krita for studios. A support subscription
might be something that can bring paid development into the project.
Well worth a look. This is a bit OT though so I'll leave it there.

Until 4.4, Qt was basically broken, and with 4.8 it's entered brokenness again. But as I said, for specific reasons I have to dig, it's a long time ago!
