Hi there,

I have some (3) problems with my Maemo bora enviroment. I run it on a 
4.5. Vmware with Windows 2k as host and KUbuntu Edgy 6.10.

(1) Under SDK_ARMEL, I am not able to start the Maemo environment. There 
is no problem if I try this with SDK_X86 eviroment.

(2) Maybe this problem has somethin to do with problem #1: I was able to
compile & run SDL programms befor, but no I get "Inconsistency detected 
by ld.so: rtld.c: 288: _dl_start_final: Assertion nfo->l.l_tls_modid == 
0' failed" running configure. I found
Is this the only solution to recompile qemu-arm emulator? Maybe I should
select another emulator? I use now:
Someone on maemo-irc suggested that it may be a kernel problem?
"CONFIG_COMPAT_VDSO=y". Do I relly have to recompile my ubuntu kernel?

(3) When I start Maemo Xephyr complaints about the font path. I didn't 
had this on my notebook (was Ubuntu 6.06 without vmware)
