Full Version: Make Software On A Zaurus And Pack The Ipk Files
OESF Portables Forum > Everything Else > Archived Forums > Zaurus General Forums > General Support and Discussion > Software
Making software and doing everything on the Zaurus might be slow but this will be a guide for everyone.

Source material is easy to find but how do we turn it into a working program and then how do we package it and save the file? There has to be an easy way.

A .ipk file is just a .tar.gz file that contains a data.tar.gz and control.tar.gz
The data.tar.gz file contains the files to be extracted in their corresponding directories and the control.tar.gz file has to contain a control file with info about the application. Just unpack one by doing the reverse process and have a look inside.


Near the end of this article it tells you how to package an ipk file and set up your desktop files etc.
