Hi Dave, thanks for your helpful comments
I could not get player to compile completely statically. Finally, I copied libstdc++.so.6
to /lib on the gumstix and every thing worked. So I guess shared libs work on the gumstix. I can't remember why I thought they wouldn't!
On the rebooting problem when scp'ing. I was using the 5v wall power supply I got from gumstix. My configuration is :-
with the wall power going to Robostix.
Your comment recalled to me that continually rebooting was the sign that I needed to replace the battery's when I was using a battery pack. So I fixed the problem by whenever I needed to scp connect the 5v battery to the WifiStix in addition to the wall supply on Robostix. So far it has worked with no problems.
