I've got rc11 running on my C1000 and I'm trying to get some things recompiled that I had working on rc10. I've got the new SDK but it has a requirement for libiconv.so.2 which I don't have installed and wasn't in the previous SDK. So, a couple questions:

Is there a reason for the new dependency?

Can I use the previous SDK for rc11?

Just looking for any tips/tricks/hints, etc... for cross-compiling.

I've had pretty good luck so far using the latest sdk from the pdaXrom folks... well-behaved configure scripts work fine. I've compiled and packaged the latest libxml2, libxslt, some python modules, etc...

Every now and then, though, I find a configure script that doesn't behave well... specifically, it tries to compile test applications which, of course, fail because I'm cross-compiling. What do folks usually do to get around this? In the past I've edited by hand the configure script, but in the library I'm trying to compile now, that's pretty painful (there are a lot of them).

Also, has anyone looked at using scratchbox for pdaxrom compiling? I played around with it a little bit trying to setup a gpe compile environment and it seemed pretty slick. It might be worth pursuing as it lets you compile "natively" inside the environment. Pretty slick.

With some help from the #oe folks a little while ago I've been tweaking the keymap for my C1000 running OZ/Opie 3.5.3. My modifications are:

* Enable right shift key
* Remap the two japanese keys near the bottom left of the keyboard: the left one is mapped to tilde and the right one is mapped to / (slash). I found this to be helpful when typing directories.
* 'Home' key mapped to F12 so it works in Opie
* Scroll switch on the side (used in portrait mode) is mapped to up and down and the "Ok" key is mapped to 'Return' and the "Cancel" key is mapped to Escape

Unfortunately I still haven't gotten the on/off button to work... I tried mapping it to F34 which seems to be the 'Power' key in qte, but that didn't work. In the meantime I've mapped the 'mail' key in the Buttons applet to the suspend call which works just fine.

I've attached my 'full-keys' output. In order to install the keymap you need to have the console-utils ipk installed. In order to install that ipk you'll have to enable force-overwrite since it includes a couple binaries that will replace the busybox version (chvt is one, can't remember the others). You can always relink those binaries to busybox if you have problems.

And finally, I modified my /etc/init.d/bootmisc.sh and added a call to loadkeys which loads up the keymap before opie is started (anytime you change the keymap you must restart opie). That addition:
if test -e /home/root/full-keys    
   /usr/bin/loadkeys /home/root/full-keys

Someday I'll generate a config that can be used as a patch to the kernel, I just haven't quite gotten there yet.

Hope this is helpful for folks...

I'm writing an app for my C1k + OZ 3.5.3 with python and have stumbled across a few things that needed tweaks, and one thing I can't get past:

I'm using urllib which imports cookielib which imports logging which imports calendar which imports datetime (whew!) all of which are missing (other than urllib) from the python-2.4.1-manifest.inc for the netclient package.

Adding them to the package has been easy (patch is trivial but I can generate it if needed) except for datetime which is a compiled library. I noticed that none of the .so files that should be in lib-dynload are actually there. Checking the log reveals:

ccache arm-linux-gcc -march=armv5te -mtune=xscale -shared -L/data/openembedded/akita/tmp/staging/arm-linux/lib -Wl,-rpath-link,/data/openembedded\

This is an up-to-date (r237) bitbake, latest pull from bk, using openzaurus-3.5.3 as the distro in my local.conf.

Hi folks,

Not sure what the best way of getting this first into OE and then into OZ is, but...

In order to use the micro-emacs app (and maybe other stuff), you'll need an /etc/terminfo directory with some terminfo files. I've tar'ed up the directory from my OZ 3.3.6p1 image here:
