Hi all
I have been battling for the past few days to get everything in place to
get moonlight running on our embedded arm platform (processor is an
ARM926EJ-Sid(wb) ).  I finally get all the dependencies in place, but
when it comes to running the glassyclock example, I get a 'should not be
reached' error from within inssel.c.  This turns out to be a catchall
exception thrown when compiling mono with no hardware FPU support (the
Is my understanding from this that moonlight will not run on hardware
without hardware floating point support, or is it a case of implementing
the missing functionality to get this working.  There does seem to be
other instructions implemented in inssel-float.brg that target a
platform with software based FPU (for example CEE_STIND_R8, whereas
CSS_STIND_R4 does not).
