Yes, currently Harmony lacks a installation version, and I remember we
are discussing it on the mailing-list, so we'll build one sooner or
later :).
(However IMHO, a make-install may fit all platforms including masses
of versions of Linux, like many other Linux programs.)

Hmm, I don't know what happens here, maybe there's some committer do
some regression. Harmony uses svn repository to control this code and
JIRA system to control bugs and patches. Maybe a good way to follow is
update svn repository and build everyday :) (Harmony release
Milestones, but can not guarantee bug-free in the milestones, and you
may need to patch the milestone build if you need to fix some bugs.)

Hmm, what vm are you using? I'm using IBMVME and debug smoothly on my
desktop, and I remember when I try DRLVM a couple of weeks ago,  it
can be debuged. Maybe there's something wrong here with your
configuration? May some DRLVM guru help you out here. :)

Thanks again for the feedback and we are looking forward more, these
do help Harmony grow faster, build more robust, and make it easier to
use! :)
