[edit] Pre 0.13 SDK (armv5te)

First, install Fremantle SDK, and add yourself as a user to scratchbox.

As user:


  • You might have to do export PKG_CONFIG_PATH=/usr/share/pkgconfig:/usr/lib/pkgconfig to get some pkg-config stuff going
  • You might have to set cpu right and such to target armv5el (no vfp)
  • You probably need to get EABI cpu transparency target too
  • 'not safe for cross-compilation' warnings (not true, i think)
  • fakeroot apt-get dist-upgrade is good once in a while to keep up to date.
