Scratchbox on Ubuntu Hardy troubleshooting

Yesterday I upgraded from Ubuntu 7.10 to the new 8.04 RC and I "broke" my Scratchbox installation. I tried to install it again and I had still some problems logging into Scratchbox and installing the SDK.

The I found this page: http://suppressingfire.livejournal.com/35277.html

that explain how to fix these problems. In particular if you get this kind of error trying to log into Scratchbox:
Inconsistency detected by ld.so: rtld.c: 1192: dl_main: Assertion `(void *) ph->p_vaddr == _rtld_local._dl_sysinfo_dso' failed!

You can fix it in this way:

echo 0 | sudo tee /proc/sys/vm/vdso_enabled
You can read the complete fix in my updated wiki: http://www.ptlug.org/wiki/Howto_Installing_Maemo_SDK_4

Installing Maemo SDK 4 HowTo Updated

I've updated my previous howto that explain how to install Maemo SDK 4 (Chinook). The other howto was written when Maemo SDK 4 Beta was out, now it's updated to 4.0.1 version of the SDK.

You can find it, as usual, on this wiki: http://www.ptlug.org/wiki/Howto_Installing_Maemo_SDK_4

If you have any suggestion or if you want to give me any idea to improve this howto, please leave me a comment.
