I got the uClibc book to work almost all the way through - I had some  
problems near the end of chapter 6, but I overcame them by replacing  
some packages with busybox. However, I quickly thereafter ran into  
problems with some proprietary software that needed to be installed,  
and was forced to start over with glibc.
