[maemo-users] My Go Experiements:

Following the discussion about Go here, I decided to try my hand and
building Go and testing it.

What I did was build it in Scratchbox on my Ubuntu machine.  With one minor
problem it built nicely.

I mounted the Scratch box directories onto my N900 using sshfs and the
program ran fine.

(You don't need to copy your executables to /usr/bin  You can keep them in a
cleaner safer place.  In my case, I been using /root/mysrc for my testing)

Since I couldn't find the Bison parser for Maemo, I didn't try building Go
on the N900 itself, but building it in Scratchbox and then using it on the
N900 seems to work fine.  If anyone wants a tarball of Go let me know.
Uncompressed it is about 15 Meg, and it should work nicely in the /opt
