In my spare time I always struggle with my pandaboard. I always meet so
many problems when I was building even a most simple kernel. Maybe it
because I am still a noob. So I was very exciting to find your project on
github and a bit disappointed when I see your website is not available,
untill today!

It seems fantastic even I am still test it. Here is a little bug happened
when I was building the pandaboard kernel that I quote the error message

Downloading 'ftp://dickey.his.com/dialog/dialog-1.2-20121230.tgz'
   Download OK (421.47kB in 4.71 sec at 89.50kB/s)

   Error 550 (Remote file not found) trying alternative URL..

   Downloading 'http://www.buildgear.org/mirror/libpng-1.5.14.tar.xz'
   Error 404 (HTTP response code said error)

I checked the ftp server and the libpnt-1.5.14 is not exist there. Then
what I did is just fix the buildfile.

diff cross-opt/libpng/Buildfile cross-opt/libpng/Buildfile.old -ruN

I also got a problem when I am trying to build the buildgear on my opensuse
machine.  It happens when I am configuring it. I guess it is my own problem
and don't know how to fix it though.

checking curses.h usability... yes
checking curses.h presence... yes
checking for curses.h... yes
configure: error: termcap not found
omytea at linux-1tm0:~/pandaboard/buildgear> whereis termcap
termcap: /etc/termcap /usr/lib/termcap /usr/include/termcap.h
/usr/include/termcap /usr/share/man/man3/termcap.3ncurses.gz

Any suggestion?

Best regards,
