Hi,
I am trying to run Player on the Gumstix (Verdex + Robostix +
netwifimicroSD), which in turn is going to be connected to the iRobot
Create. I downloaded Player 2.1.1 and configured it as follows:

./configure --build=x86-linux --host=arm-angstrom-linux --disable-alldrivers
--enable-roomba --prefix=/gumstix-buildroot/
build_arm_nofpu/root/usr/local/
CFLAGS=-fPIC --with-pic

I built and installed Player based on this configuration. Once it was
installed, I transferred the executable to the Gumstix and tried to run it
as follows:

# ./player roomba.cfg

It gave me:

-sh: ./player: not found

I'm not sure why its doing this. Whats even more weird is that when I try to
open it up using vi, it gives me the following:

#! /bin/bash

# player - temporary wrapper script for .libs/player
# Generated by ltmain.sh - GNU libtool 1.5.26 Debian 1.5.26-1ubuntu1

#
# The player program cannot be directly executed until all the libtool
# libraries that it depends on are installed.
#
# This wrapper script should never be moved out of the build directory.
# If it is, it will not operate correctly.

I don't know what this means, I'm a newbie at this stuff. I also tried to
run the player on my desktop whose details are:

root@adheer-desktop:~/roboticsprimer-0.1/exercises/01_introduction/gumstix#
uname -a
Linux adheer-desktop 2.6.20-17-generic #2 SMP Mon Jun 9 19:21:17 UTC 2008
x86_64 GNU/Linux

I got,:

root@adheer-desktop:~/player-2.1.1/server# ./player
Player v.2.1.1
USAGE:  player [options] [<configfile>]

Where [options] can be:
 -h             : print this message.
 -d <level>     : debug message level (0 = none, 1 = default, 9 = all).
 -p <port>      : port where Player will listen. Default: 6665
 -q             : quiet mode: minimizes the console output on startup.
 <configfile>   : load the the indicated config file

The following 1 drivers were compiled into Player:

   roomba


which is the way I expect it to behave on the Gumstix. Can someone help me
solve this problem, I have tried and tried only to fail. Could this be a
compiler issue, why isn't the darned thing running on the Gumstix. Please
let me know,
Thanks,
Adheer
