  • So, a toolchain is a very sensitive piece of software, as any bug in one of the components, or a poorly configured component, can lead to execution problems, ranging from poor performance, to applications ending unexpectedly, to mis-behaving software (which more than often is hard to detect), to hardware damage, or even to human risks (which is more than regretable).

  • Conclusion Application development for the Openmoko platform is ✔ comparable to desktop development Many new improvements of the operating system and ✔ the available software are expected in the next months Development tools need to be improved to offer better ✔ stability and ease of use The toolchain should be the way to go for easy software ✔ development, but configuration issues make it difficult to use The OpenEmbedded environment is not practical because of ✔ the large disk space and build time requirements 35
