I don't have an XO, but I recall that many XO's in the field are
running older versions of Linux. The VMs on squeakvm.org are built
on a relatively up to date system, and the resulting VM will try
to link at runtime to newer libraries that may not be present on
your XO machine.

The simple solution would be to find somebody with an old Linux box
and build the VM there. Unfortunately my trusty old computer died a
while back, so I cannot offer any help at the moment.

If anyone out there has an old Linux box handy and can build a VM
and send it to Juan, I'm sure he'll appreciate it :)
