I am trying to go through the process of installing maemo 5 beta scratchbox
and the SDK from
and http://maemo.org/development/sdks/maemo_5-0_installation/

I am running ArchLinux, and used the automated scratchbox installer, and
everything seemed to go well. However when I invoke the automated sdk
installer script it complains about the /dev user directory not being set
up. Any suggestions, or do I have to install Ubuntu just to develop for
