We have this Group Embedded Nirvana. We know that this is the kind of 
problem everyone faces. There are lot of issues you might come across 
because you are not using compatible versions of the tools.
So we came together and created a Vmware fedora image.

This Image has

   1. Cross compiler
   2. Linux kernel
   3. Qemu Virtualization env for Arm 9 Arch.

Plus a few extra tools.
We have compiled everything from source and there is a script which does 
all this stuff from scratch (Right form downloading the sources )

In case you want the DVD it's at COEP embedded systems lab, contact 
Suchakra for that. We meet there every sat between 10.30 - 12.30

Cheers !!!

I believe there's a hero in all of us
who keeps us honest, gives us strength, makes us noble, and finally 
allows us to die with pride,
even though sometimes we have to be steady, and give up the thing we 
want the most... even our dreams.
