Right now the TI sample binaries, such as the ping, don't work: they are calling DSPManager_EnumProcessorInfo function, which is currently deprecated, falling in a infinite loop.
There's a (still incomplete) rewrite of these samples at http://gitorious.org/vjaquez-beagleboard/dsp-samples
> The only relevant tool is DLLcreate, which can be found in TI's omapzoom site, on the dspbridge_dsp package.
Right now the dspbridge_dsp package's link is broken.
I found the doffbuild tools here: http://dev.omapzoom.org/?p=tidspbridge/userspace-dspbridge.git;a=blob_plain;f=source/dsp/bdsptools/bridge-tools.tar;hb=HEAD
Sadly, DLLcreate et all are binary only and they require libstdc++ 5. Your distribution should provide a back port of it.
