Well its been a while since my last post, I had to RMA my pandora, it took a couple weeks, It had one faulty SD slot, but this is all another story. I have had it back for a few weeks and I have been a busy penguin, I have setup a cross compile environment and have installed compile tools on pandora. compiled a few things, started down the KDE 3.5 path, building qt, and arts, and ran into several problems. I really miss my scratchbox maemo environment which I hated, however its probably cause I am following 5 sets of instructions that all assume I know more than I do. Anyway this was all going pretty slow, so I started looking around and I ran into this http://pandorawiki.org/Debian_On_SD (Thanks Stuckie)
On that Debian on SD page you can download a bootable Debian image. I promptly did this and installed KDE4 against some warnings. It actually ran great, but the akonadi server which is required for KDEPIM and other fun things just hits mysql (disk) constantly and it kills performance and I ran into many other issues that I was able to overcome, but I really wanted to see how KDE 3.5 would run.
I then went back to the page and followed the build from scratch instructions building from lenny instead of squeeze. I ran into some issues not addressed in the wiki, but it was what got me threw it all, thanks again Stuckie!!
Anyway, So Here is what I ended up with: KDE 3.5.10
