Hi , I did is slightly differently because I followed the older wiki
based documentation

I had to install the host-gcc sbox package to make the menuconfig
work. it is not listed
as package to manually install  at http://tablets-dev.nokia.com/bora/INSTALL.txt
but if not installed results in

make HOSTCC=host-gcc n800_defconfig
make[1]: Entering directory
  HOSTCC  scripts/basic/fixdep
/scratchbox/compilers/bin/host-gcc: Too many open files
make[2]: *** [scripts/basic/fixdep] Error 1
make[1]: *** [scripts_basic] Error 2
make[1]: Leaving directory `/home/

on older releases I was able to run programs compiled with -pg and
produce the output (I think empy) files. more complicated programs
simply failed compiling or running

I think He does not use sbox in such situations.

Are you happy with the scripting language? I am currently hooked to lua

Do you thing it would be possible to create home applets in evas (are
there gtk->evas bridges?)
