I'm trying to set up an environment on my Desktop for compiling applications for the Droid. I have tried everything I've seen for setting up this environment, but all of the guides I've seen seems to be a few years old and are either broken or the instructions are so out dated that they no longer apply. Does anybody have the steps needed to get this working?

I have access to numerous Linux boxes running different distros. Offhand I have access to Fedora 11, CentOS 4 and 5, Debian Lenny, and *shudder* Gentoo. If your instructions are for a specific distro, chances are I can get a box set up with it so send them along please :)

Any advice on getting this set up would be appreciated.

Moving to Android Development, since this seems kinda Androidy. Let me know if you disagree!

I seem to have solved my own problem on this one, but for anyone else that is interested, I ended up using an application called scratchbox, I got it at http://www.scratchbox.org/ and followed the instructions in their documentation. It uses qemu to emulate the ARM processor. For the Droid I used the arm7 toolchain package. Once I had it installed I ran it and was able to compile for the ARM without a problem, just make sure to remember to use STATIC=1 when you run your make, otherwise you will get "not found" error when running on the device.
