I've successfully gotten my linux box up and running for JTAG flash
programming of the Olimex boards, arm7 compilation of FreeRTOS and eclipse
setup. I've put the instructions and gotchyas on the setup page,
http://psas.pdx.edu/OlimexLPC2148Setup . If other people are able to get up
and running under Linux I'd be curious to know of any other platform/OS
specific gotchas you run into.
