Hi,

I was looking for a Livejournal client for Opie, I found this, which is distributed in source and binary form, but hasn't been updated since 2002. I'm guessing with the toolchain changes that have gone on from SharpROM->OZ and even within OZ itself that these binaries will not work. So, what is the best way to compile this source package without installing the OpenEmbedded environment on my disk? Would that even be possible? IIRC, Opie and Qtopia are compatible on the source level, so it should be possible to compile and run this with minimal or no changes, no?

I am running OpenZaurus/Opie (Hengtes) 3.5.4.2-rc on a Sharp SL-5600.

TIA,
Andrew

Why not just install OE? It is very easy. Walk through http://www.openembedded.org/wiki/OEandYourDistro (tells you what software to install) and http://www.openembedded.org/wiki/GettingStarted (tells you how to configure it) and you are all set.

Would be nice if you contributed your changes to OE back to the community (IOW, post the bb files, etc. to http://bugs.openembedded.org

Well, it is rather large and slow. Although it would be a good idea to bring this software up-to-date and maybe get it included in Openembedded. Hope I'm not out of my league here...I'll see what I can do tomorrow.

The largeness is caused by the source for the programmes that have to be compiled to link against your final code. These files can be deleted automatically by bitbake if you so wish.

It's actually rather fast (the recipe searching which used to be slow is now very quick).
