I've set use_arch/use_cpu in the $host check for arm. Configure.in needs more work to actually support arm cross-compiling. It gets complicated.

There's a problem with doing this, OpenMax headers have includes like "#include <OMX_Core.h>" and so they need a -I path setup or the include will not be found.
So while "#include OpenMAX/il/OMX_Core.h" works in our code, it fails because the OpenMax include cannot find what it includes.

Did you eventually get this working on the iMX51? if so, would you care to share exactly how you did it?

New beagleboard coming soon:
DM3730 1GHz CortexA8 512MB ram onboard LAN only $30 more than the current one.
I want want!!

I really see no advantage at running Arm at that price point.

Although I see the Cortex A8 as outdated compared to the Cortex A9, its still cheaper than the tegra2, and probably easier to get hold on (not to mention better support for drivers etc)
I suppose for $30 more, its worth it (note, not talking consumer devices here)

Hmm ... Boxee box ( tegra 2 ) is rumored to be less than $200 and it should support xbmc. Hopefully it will come out end of this month.
Any reason why beagle board don't ship with hdmi out ?

hi,JEFERY99, have you done with the IMX515 ?
I start this job yesteday, using the arm-camelot branch.
I meet the configure error :
checking for main in -lEGL... no
but there is libegl in the use/lib.
and can you give some advise how to get the XMBC run on the IMX515 and get some configure changes

Earlier today I posted this in maybe the wrong place: HDX Bone / TCC8900 / Mali 200 GPU .
(I posted it at: XBMC Community Forum > Help and Support > XBMC General Help and Support > XBMC for Linux and XBMC Live Specific Support)
The short of it is that the HDX Bone is a Telechips TCC8900 SoC / ARM1176JZF-S with the Mali 200 GPU.
The Mali-200 supports both the OpenGL ES 1.1 and OpenGL ES 2.0 graphics standards.
Anyway, found this thread later and seemed like maybe this thread or this section (XBMC Feature Suggestions) is maybe where my original post ought to have landed.
Anyway not trying to be a cross-post-hole, just attempting to find the right place for the question of the suitability of the HDX Bone as port target for XMBC.
