Hi,

I encounterd a problem with getting jpilot to run on Beta3. I installed both the versions compiled by cjb (non-gtk) and me (with gtk2 support). But it fails to launch and display the following message:
CODE
Error: Could not set encoding


But interestingly there is no issue at all in Beta1.

I recompiled both the older 0.99.8 (= the version of the current packages) and also built from the latest 0.99.9 source, with and without libiconv at different times. but still no luck. sad.gif

And I checked with the the jpilot.desktop file, the Encoding is set to UTF-8 by default.

Have googled and and search the jpilot mailing list. But there is nothing talking about this issue.

So would it be a Z-specific or even Beta3-specific issue?

So is there anyone who also experiences the same problem?
And any help or guidance is much appreciated.

Many thanks! laugh.gif

Edited:
Should have added this note: the package available in the official feeds (0.99.8) seems to be the one done by cjb.

I had problems running Jpilot on Beta3, and in the end I gave up. Not sure what error I was getting but I can try it again when I have some time if you like. Can you link me to the ipk's you are using?
ZDevil
Sure!

cjb's non-gtk2 version
(Faster and with proper window size)

My gtk2 version
(With gtk2 support so CJK is also supported and scim can work with it, but with the caveat of oversized panels)

I also compiled a new version from the latest source, but it got the same error in Beta3 so I won't bother to post it here.

Many thanks! smile.gif

P.S. I will also test my latest build in Beta1 (C860) and report how it goes.

I had a version installed already, which worked, although I could not find out which ipk it was from, but had the plain gray interface and was too big for the screen.

Anyway I uninstalled and have tried both ipks above but get an error:

jpilot: error while loading shared libraries: libpisock.so.9: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

couldn't see an ipk for pisock in your feed, any ideas?

So do you mean you got jpilot working previously also in Beta3?
libpisock should be in pilot-link, which is in the main feeds.
Thanks!

EDITED:
Just found that pilot-link and libpisock are actually packaged separately in the r121 feed.
And the original package from http://www.neonbox.org/zaurus/index.html have both together.

Installing the 2 packages from neonbox give the message:

Package "pilot-link-0.12.0-pre4-armv5tel.ipk" not found on external storages.

But still seems to install. I've tried all sorts of thing but I can't get past the libpisock error, although I can confirm the file does exist....
ZDevil
That means pilot-link is not installed at all.
It's all because of the annoying underscore thingy. ipkg seems to fail to parse hyphens in the filename
So "pilot-link-0.12.0-pre4-armv5tel.ipk" has to be renamed to "pilot-link_0.12.0-pre4_armv5tel.ipk" and installation should go well. Libpisock is installed together with pilot-link if you use cjb's version; the one in the feeds (say in r121) has got libpisock and libpisync split off and they have to be installed separately.
Hope that helps. smile.gif
