I've played with ARM in qemu-system-arm, and tried to do the following: 1. Install Fedora/ARM. It's overbloated and buggy, but it's RPM-based and has all the software necessary for building. 2. Prepare the build environment (see http://www.openwall.com/Owl/BUILD.shtml and http://openwall.info/wiki/Owl/upgrade); at least you'll need to run: su - build lftp -e 'open ftp.ru.openwall.com; cd /pub/Owl/current; mirror -Lev sources; get native.tar.gz; exit' tar -xzf native.tar.gz 3. Try to build the Owl: make buildworld Some packages will fail to build, so you'll need to introduce some new patches or even new packages - look at /usr/src/world/logs/* for details. I don't remember exactly where I stuck, but it was either the kernel or the bootloader (latter is more likely - I see traces of Blob and U-boot on one of my computers). -- Alexey V.
