The kernel's probably fine, though I don't know if the USRP / libusb
stuff has been tested on it.  It's been a while since I had a 2.4
kernel on any of my machines.

When you say "something is going wrong with SWIG", what do you mean?
Does it fail to generate the code, or can't the generated file be
compiled, or something else?

What version of g++ are you using?

How much memeory does the embedded system have?
Does it have swap?

The virtual size of g++ when compiling the swig generated code is on
the order of 350 - 400MB for the x86 architecture.  I don't expect
it's much different for ARM.
