ubuntu 9.04 does not have the correct repositories to do "sudo apt-get install qemu-arm-static" Where can I find this so I can install it or is there another work around to this step?--Elpollodiablo1 16:49, 7 January 2010 (UTC)

Updated the article to include the fix which will work without this package --Destinal 17:00, 7 January 2010 (UTC)
I get a permission error so I tried with sudo but did work. It does not seem like the file mmap_min_addr.conf exists i that directory. should I create it and put that line into it? thanks --Elpollodiablo1 17:19, 7 January 2010 (UTC)

I had a missing wget at the make toolchain stage. A quick "sudo apt-get install wget" fixed that.

updated list of requirements and the multi-item apt-get rboatright 19:31, 29 January 2010 (UTC)

On my system make stage freezes at: "checking if the linker (/srv/preware/cross-compile/toolchain/arm-2007q3/arm-none-linux-gnueabi/bin/ld) is GNU ld..." It's Ubuntu 9.04 amd64. Any idea?

I still have the mmap errors in my VirtualBoxed Ubuntu, running on the newest ArchLinux...

Couple of issues: 1) Maybe non-issue, but WARNINGs during "make" make it seem like other packages are necessary for full functionality? minor? guile-snarf (provided in guile-dev i believe) But others seem important: libsdl-dev most notably, & some audio/video codes I assume are important: libsmpeg, libvorbis-dev, libflac-dev, mikmod.
2) error with pidgin, it doesn't seem to be pointing to the actual tarball with "curl -f -R -L -o ../../../downloads/pidgin-2.6.6.tar.bz2.tmp" as I'm getting a html file as the downloaded item. ("bzip2: (stdin) is not a bzip2 file.") Ah, Tried the link in my web browser, it's broke. Here's a link that works.
2a) Maybe this error's been fixed in a current revision of the repository? but I don't see the command to update the tree, is it possible to provide this info? (It's ended up taking me days to get this compiled on either of my computers for various reasons).
3) Also had to patch libtool in make[7]: Entering directory `/srv/preware/cross-compile/packages/media/libvorbis/build/armv6/lib' by these directions:
4) Sometimes got "permission denied" on copying of .svn files, so I just made those files rw and continued on.
5) Q: Will apps created with this qualify for the app catalog? Ajay 21:39, 8 September 2010 (UTC)

Ubuntu 9.10 - "** Required DotConf library missing! See INSTALL . make[3]: *** [build/armv7.built] Error 1 make[3]: Leaving directory `/srv/preware/cross-compile/+packages/apps/speechd'" have libdotconf installed. Tried installing -dev, no change. -Ajay 20:21, 9 September 2010 (UTC)
