Midori on GATEWAY aol thing...

a friend got this gateway thing, which is basically a teeny crap box, with a wireless keyboard.

I have a CF card, and need to get midori, or mobilelinux installed.

I extract midor, tar -zxvf midori-1.0.0-beta2
then I do configure, make webconfig
then i try make, make

and it gives this following error.

You need to set umask to 022 to build this system!
make: *** [check] Error 1
I know what umask is, im not that dumb, but i nano the files, etc/fstab.ext2, and etc/fstab.cramfs, and I set the option, defaults, umask=022

and it still gives the same error.

Now I never did anything with a mobile linux before, so maybe that may be part of the problem

I'm compiling it on a gentoo system, then copying over to cf drive, in order to install on gateway crap.

He got his touchpad aol for $44, it is worth $600!, unbelieveable, all it is is a touchscreen lcd, and wireless mini keyboard, but who would pay $$$ for a mini pc that can only run aol.
