Hello Frank,

yes I think there are some Squeaks in the App repositories of some linux 
distributions that are compiled for ARM too. Maybe you used one of them 
and didn't have to compile it by yourself.
 I tried one on my NAS, but it crashed with a segmantation fault. Also I 
think they are quite old and newer Squeak images need a newer VM. But I'm 
not shure, I think where was some thing like closure VM or so.

I set up my Raspberry Pi several months ago so I've forgotten how or
what I did. However, I _did_ very easily get Squeak running on it, so
it can't have been hard or I'd have remembered the pain.
