Hi Lyle

Got it working  by fiddling a lot. I am working on an Arm9 embedded
board with Linux.  Had to do a lot of cross compiling, copying folders
etc.

On a project with dead line on 10th. I may need your help profusely.
Kindly help me out. I am in the process of adding linux drivers for
Camera, and biometric using finger print. After that I need Ruby to
talk to the drivers or libraries and get the validation onto FXruby
forms.

Please keep in touch as I am desperate.

Thanking you

Nataraj
