I can compile player on my desktop and scp it to gumstix but when I try to run it
on gumstix I get

# ./player create.cfg
./player: can't load library 'libstdc++.so.6'

excerpts from config.log

It was created by player configure 2.0.4, which was
generated by GNU Autoconf 2.59.  Invocation command line was

  $ ./configure --build=x86-linux --host=arm-linux --disable-shared --disable-alldrivers --enable-roomba

and later it says

Which looks like although Player is not using shared library's the  gumstix  buildroot
is supplying them anyway. I have found no way in menuconfig to change this
parameter in gumstix-buildroot.

1) can anyone confirm/disprove my diagnosis?
2) Is there a way to turn off shared in buildroot?
I would prefer to use static library's and avoid the complications of  shared on
gumstix.  Chad George reports that some one has fixed shared libs on gumstix.
I have not been able to find this. so
3)Could someone give a pointer to getting shared libs running on gumstix
4)gumstix reboots often when i'm scp ing files to it, any ideas?
