Hi bmarkus:
  I found LuaJIT 2.0.1 has been released, is it will be in repo replace Ver2.0.0 soon?
(It's a bug fix release, "an update is recommended".)

I 'm not clear about the module gpio.lua , if i copy it to a right path , it will be used send on/off to gpio pin ,ok? Is it a regular Lua script ?

Any chance for gdb compilation with gcc-4.6.3?
Will be helpful in teaching arm assembly language programming.
I did try to compile gdb-5.1.1, gdb-6.6 and gdb-7.5 but met with too
many problems. :(

gdb 7.5.1 is added to the repo, please try and let me know the result. I'm not using gdb so maybe header files are missing but in general expected to work.

gdb-7.5.1 works great and thanks a lot.

Now if only you could tell me how did you compile it? I do not have luck with
compilations in picore (only success so far is gnu-nano -- an old version but works).
I was trying to compile dropbear to fix path for dbclient (/us/bin/dbclient should
be /usr/local/bin/dbclient in options.h file but the compilation fails due to missing
zlib.h.

Any way, nano, gcc, make and gdb work are enough for teaching ARM assembly language
to the gullible. :-)

Can't that be done just by symlinking at runtime?

You need  zlib_base-dev.tcz
Please post any further questions about building extensions under  TCE Q&A Forum

Programs may need additional tools, libraries, etc. to install. Check documentation, usualy called INSTALL or README in source and study messageses provided by configure.

Regarding gdb it is necessary to add -ltinfo switch in Makefile manually additionally to install zlib_base-dev, ncurses-dev, ...
