I thought I would get around the space problem by doing a new install of Ubuntu 9.10 on another computer. This computer has loads of space (at least 200 GB). I tried the installation as the windows method on anempty 30 GB partition.
This progressed OK and I got it installed and running with the old development tools.I got the source for 0.10.2 and built it. No problems runs great.
I then decided to install Qt 4.6.0 but ran out of space imediately. I checked the Linux installation. There is only 1GB total of which 979 MB is used. Apparently this method only allocates a 1GB virtual disk for Linux. Looks like I will need to start again with a standard installation.
