Dear Wolfgang Denk,

First let me apologize for violating the netiquette code! I was not
aware of it.

The fact is, I'm not sure if my problem is OpenWrt's ralated or it's
ELDK's related! But with the first look, it seems ELDK's related since
I'm trying to develop a software. Other than that, OpenWrt is working
fine on its own!

The problem's that I was reading the README.html file that is shipped
within the ISO file (ppc-2008-04-01.iso). In that file, the PPC405EP
is not mentioned! At least it is not mentioned in "1.5. Working with
ELDK" section that I was reading. Maybe you want to update that part
of manual to prevent future confusions.

OpenWrt comes with a "ash" CLI which I connected to it through a SSH
client (Putty to be precise). I'm sure that I got the execution
completely. I gave the execution permission to the files and called
their names like "./hello". After I failed, I took away their execution
permission for test. This time it prompted that my file does not have
the necessary permission to be executed, as it was expected. After
granting the execution permission a second time, I checked for their
dynamic library dependencies by the means of "ldd" software. I entered
"ldd hello", again I was prompted "File Not Found"!!

Well, the fact is, I have no idea how to check the compatibility
between OpenWrt libraries and and ELDK's!! Could you please tell me
how it is done? And if they are not compatible, what can I do?
