[maemo-developers] ARMEL or X86

X86 refers to the Intel 386, 468, 586.. (x86) and it's clones. The x86
environment uses binaries compiled to work on your desktop computer.

Armel refers to the ARM processor line. The n800 uses an ARM11 processor, so
the armel environment is for binaries compiled to run on the n800 and
similar devices.

QEMU has some trouble emulating certain ARM processors, so you may have
trouble running armel binaries on your PC depending on which ARM
architecture you compile for.

The armel binaries should run on your N800, though...
