Hello again and thanks for the reply,

Yes, absolutly. The interface is a bit slow (X/GTK2 based), but the
rest is really great.
They ship it with a debian-frontend by default (so you can install
self-made debian packages) and provide a cross-compilation enviroment
based on scratchbox which makes developing/testing much easier.
A really nice gadget ;-)

I tried it for now only with the interpreter, however withought success.
Both in scratchbox (using qemu as arm->x86 translator) and on real
hardware the same problem show up.
It builds, but when I start it it seems to wait somewhere doing
nothing. I was not able to get gdb working inside of scratchbox, but
as far as I read it should be possible....
I'll have a look,  maybe I can get some useful infos out of it.

Thanks, lg Clemens
