I guess you can install everything easily from SVN (see the get_e.sh by
Raster). I'm doing it (using my own scripts BTW) for some months and all
works always well.
So I'd suggest to compile it in your own machine, then you'll be able to
use python as C (of course :P) to write your software... I'm doing this
and also with the help of Xephyr I can forget to write for a phone. When
finally I compile the code for "my little ARM boy" :P I'm pretty sure
that all is working as expected since the toolkits I'm using are good
(also) for it! ;)
