Floating point exception

Hi all,

i am actually porting crosscompiling a text to speech convertor (flite) to PXA255-arm based platform...everything is performing well... but the final binary when i execute on the target platform it is giving an error called "Floating point exception"... i don't know how to fix this problem... whether anyone have worked with this flite?cross compiled for arm ?

Some ARM chips (I think this includes the PXA225) don't have FPUs. You'll need to compile FPU emulation into the kernel (I believe the option is CONFIG_MATH_EMULATION=y).
