I've been meaning to try this for ages, but finally got around to it this week. I'm running solydmaemo in a virtualbox VM.

I was disappointed to find that it didn't have a Maemo 5 scratchbox already installed, since that's what I really wanted. The Esbox tool to install the SDK doesn't work anymore since the nokia repos have disappeared.

Anyhow, I've managed to bumble through a mish-mash of the Maemo 5 Final (ha!) SDK Installation and CSSU-thumb toolchain setup wiki pages.

During the SDK install, I found that the configuration of libgtk2.0-bin would constantly segfault. Setting the vm.mmap_min_addr sysctl to 4096 (it was 64K) fixed that.

Next step: Can't start the scratchbox GUI. Ugh, okay, it isn't supposed to work in the ARMEL target. Grr, I wish it just detected scratchbox and complained rather than looking like it should work. I knew this stuff seven years ago but it's all fallen out of my head by now.

Anyhow, I guess I'm dangerous now.
