I had downloaded Qt Embedded 4.5 few months back and cross compiled it for ARM platform. i am a newbie but going through the forums, i could get how to compile it.

after deploying my application on the target ARM board, i noticed that the application stalled, eating up around 99% of the CPU whenever i used QLinearGradiant or QRadialGradiant in my app through style sheets. On removing the gradiance code, the application was running smoothly.

What could be the problem here? has anyone ever experienced anything like this? or does anyone have a clue why this could be happening?

Gradient in application make it look good, and i want to use it without using too much CPU. can anyone suggest me whats happening?
