I'll include the error message in case it is helpful.

	[casten at localhost moko]$ make openmoko-devel-image
	( cd build && . ../setup-env && \

	/bin/sh: line 1: 27055 Segmentation fault      bitbake
	make: *** [openmoko-devel-image] Error 139

and compiling and running.

Any advice?

Thanks so much.
