    RPM-based distribution with Qt 3.2 or higher (Fedora2, SUSE 9.1, Mandrake 10)
    Will it work with gentoo?

    dont see why it wouldnt work, as long as you have a rpm package manager...

    Gentoo isn't an RPM based distro. I would never consider installing an RPM manager ontop of Gentoo since Gentoo relies on it's portage system. Not good to have two different dependancy managers active on a single system.

    I emailed the developers of that software awhile back to ask if they were going to release a version with US map data. They said they were, in February. Haven't seen anything on the site yet.

    if you really wanted to, you could use alien to convert the rpm to a tgz file, and then use whatever tools gentoo uses to make a package, then import that.

    not the quickest way to do it, but i dont see why it wouldnt work
