Full Version: Questions About Developing An App For Opie
OESF Forums > Distros, Development, and Model Specific Forums > Everything Development > OpenZaurus/Opie/Qtopia
Mr. Sinister
I'm a pretty skilled C++ developer, and I want to write some apps for my Zaurus 6000L under Opie.
What dev tools do I need to begin developing Opie apps on my PC (an Athlon Gentoo Linux box) to port to my zaurus?
I want them to be GUI apps, so I'm guessing I'll need Qt embedded libs, and possibly some others. And I already have gcc 3.3.4, make, etc.
Also is there a tutorial anywhere about using the Qt/E api? Or is it the same api as the regular Qt?

Thanks.

Toolchain, libs etc are all automatically built by BB/OE (see here: http://www.oesf.org/forums/index.php?showforum=136).

If you run a 'bitbake opie-camera' (or similar) its source will be downloaded (and it will be built after the toolchain and all of its other dependencies are built) and you can then check out its source.

Also look here for more info:

http://opie.handhelds.org

Note that to use the Opie buildsystem on x86, you don't need BitBake nor OpenEmbedded. The instructions for how to build Opie to develop on your PC are in the Opie wiki (see lardman's post).
