Thanks a lot for sharing your experients here, I also started with the
interpreter and kaffe-gc only to eliminate as many problems before
they even occur ;-)
It depends wether I can get gdb runnig inside scratchbox, however if
the problem is even processor-specific (have you been able to run
kaffe on other ARM based processors?) I doubt I can succeed since I
even don't know howto debug it :-(
Does 2004-11-11 also work with JIT?

I know some german company is redistributing kaffe on arm machines, so
I'll ask wether they can give me some tipps.

For now I succeeded compiling and running JamVM (a very minimalistic,
interpreter only vm) on my 770, however there are still troubles with
the gtk peers - however Kaffe sure would be a longer term goal since
its far more powerful.

so far, lg Clemens
