Personally, I installed scratchbox as per
then have to start the environment up and login.
Then I get a prompt
[sbox-CHINOOK_ARMEL: ~]>
and can do gcc, make etc., then copy binaries to the tablet with scp.
Sometimes, the binary segfaults in scratchbox but runs OK on the tablet.
I haven't investigated.

I'm not sure this is the same as you have; I'm not running VMware AFAIK.

I don't normally use GUI on Linux and may or may not have an icon on ny 
FC4 system. Probably not.
