Hi Ryan,Björn

I am on qt-embedded-linux-opensource-4.6.2, working on linux framebuffer.
My toolchain is  arm-linux-uclibcgnueabi-. Working on a Arm9 CPU based
handheld with OS linux + uclibc for Arm.

I used Buildroot ( http://buildroot.org/) for building the filesystem  with
Qt-embedded and ruby.

regards

Nataraj
