I found this package in the new packages thread here:
http://www.oesf.org/forums/index.php?showt...ndpost&p=155861
I cannot launch it, so I launched it in a console and I get the following:
error while loading shared library: libecal-1.2.so.7
Where can this library be found?
Does the package that this library is contained in have the same name as this library?
I find that some libraries that are shown as missing don't have their own *.ipk
In other words, I have to ask someone, where "such and such" library can be found, because it comes in a package with a completely different name than the library which I need.

I find that I have to track down libraries a lot when "trying out" new software in the New Packages Announcement thread.
Why don't persons that post new packages under the stickied thread do one of these 3 things?
1. Include all dependencies with package.
or
2. Post all dependencies in the same post with the package.
or
3. Include a text list of all dependencies with package.

Thank you,
Jon

That's a library from evolution-data-server package. It is in the main feed for pdaXrom r121, but not in beta1/beta3. I made a custom package for beta3 in my custom feed.

The tricky bit about dependencies is that sometimes it is not so easy to figure out, but the person who build new packages usually already have some of the dependant packages installed and their newly build package just works so they don't include dependencies into their package control file. On the other hand, when building some packages, the build process requires extra packages to be build and generally those packages will be listed in the depends section of the ipk file since the package builder will most likely remember that they had to build this extra package and add it as a depend.

Thanks meanie smile.gif (again for answering one of my newb questions)
After getting the dependencies, this "Lightweight" package isn't so lightweight after all...
3.27MB
The list below are the dependencies that I need and don't already have installed.

One thing that attracted me to this "Dates" package is: When I looked at the screenshots on the linked page, it shows a holiday on the calendar.
(I have yet to find a simple to use/install holiday package for either of my Zaurii)
I have a holiday package for my Palm, that just works and includes all the holidays, and is configurable.

but these are shared libraries that are also used by other applications which you just haven't installed yet. For example, if you had gnumeric and ekiga installed already, then all of those would had already been installed and you would just had added a tiny package..., or the other way around, if you install those packages now, then they won't be pulling much extra packages anymore...

I installed the above libraries, and made sure I have any dependencies of dependencies installed.
Now it's asking for libgnome libraries
libgnome
gnome-vfs

I looked very carefully at the dependencies of evolution-data-server_1.7.91 and any others that are shown in the feed that are dependencies for the libraries that I installed, why is it asking for gnome libraries now?

EDIT:
I installed gnome-vfs and gnome-mime-data and it seemed to have all it's dependencies satisfied. Now I get this error in the console:
dates: relocation error: /usr/lib/libgtkdatesview.so.0: undefined symbol: g_intern_static_string

LOL

the dependent libraries also have dependencies...

and after all that, you realise you installed a package compiled for r121
look in my feed, I have dates there as well for beta3/pdaXii13

1. I didn't see anywhere on the feed that the gnome libraries were listed as dependencies until after I installed all the above.
There was no mention of gnome on any of the libraries or evolution-data-server_1.7.91 on the feed.
2. These programs need to be shown as being for r121 or beta3 or beta1

I'll try your dates program meanie, if I have any further problems, I'll post them here.

It installed and runs! smile.gif
I just wonder if I needed those gnome libraries now.
The calendar is really hard to see. If I hold it at about a 90 angle on the right side the calendar is easier to view. Only the current day/date is real visible. The rest looks like a very light shade of gray. screencap below.
It disappears if you turn your landscape screen to the left.
clicking Calendar > Properties shuts it down. Is there any way to change the interface colors?
Also, do the Holidays appear, or do I need a "Holidays" package?
Also, I haven't seen a calendar, (at least where I live) that starts on Monday. Is there a way to change this?

I just compiled it for testing and evaluation. I really don't consider any of those packages on ohand as production ready. They are still in heavy development and should be treated as such, ie test packages for eval. Just need to wait and see what they come up with, and send them some useful feedback...
No idea about holiday thing, I haven't had time to eval the dates package yet. I mainly compiled it for Antikx to play with..., busy with other things....
As for starting on Monday, well, the week offically starts with Sunday though, that's why Saturday and Sunday are called weekends, they sit on both ends of the week smile.gif
But, feel free to send commends to ohands asking for your features you want...

I'm actually more accustomed to the week starting on Sunday, and I find it mildly annoying that I cannot configure gpe-calendar to display this way. However, if you're looking for a calendar that starts on Mon, gpe-calendar might make you happy.

I've compiled 'dates' by myself, but when started it shows

CODE
** (dates:6379): WARNING **: Error retrieving local time zone

** (dates:6379): WARNING **: No groups found


and nothing more ... cpu usage stays at zero, but nothing runs. Same with the rest apps.
Same with the other's packages ...

A copy of the announcement post :

Some real slick and fast PIM apps for our Z :

They are small and lightweight, but yet they are based on evolution-data-server and can use (modify) your evolution data.
There is no sync solution yet, but it's coming soon.
These apps were created for the Nokia 770 and are in full development.

dates :

Take a look on the project website for info and screenshots

contact :

Sorry if I broke someones system or gave someone some more grey hairs or shortened his/her life with a few years, but I thought I mentioned evolution-data-server and since I'm running r121 it's quite logical I compile packages for r121.
I even added evolution-data-server in the dependencies.

Next time I'll copy the contents of the control-file in the announcement, just to be even more clear.

Sorry again for being not so clear.

@ kkazakov13 : what's wrong with mine ? I suppose your evolution-data-server is broken, maybe reinstall it ?

Have fun,
Chero.

he is running beta3 and hence cannot run yours. btw, i got dates and contacts in my feed, but tasks core dumps sad.gif

Thanks Chero and Meanie for bringing a few new PIM packages to pdaX.
A truly nice working PIM app/suite will definitely win a lot of applause.
Then again, it seems the hand.com apps still leave a lot to be desired.
My C1000 is not ready yet to try them out, because right now it is still busy compiling XftGnuEmacs. Have repeated "make bootstrap" more than a dozen times, not because of the source codes, but just because of many errors I found in the freetype headers in the native compiler, particularly the wrong locations of includes: many #include <freetype/blah.h> should be changed to #include <freetype2/freetype/blah...> or to ful paths.

Just a screenshot to show that it's not that hard to change the colors of the date and hour labels to something readable (in the source code).

I did a quick "find and replace" in the code to achieve this :

After fiddling some more, we could get a perfect layout.

About contacts :
I imported my kapi addressbook in evolution (on my desktop), copied my ~/.evolution to my Zaurus, seems to work perfectly.

actually, the includes are correct, its the configure script that is wrong. it should had gotten the include path from freetype2.pc and included the .../include/freetype2 as an include (-I) option and then all the #include <freetype/blah.h> would had been found correctly...
alternatively, you could had just symlinked include/freetype2/freetype to include/freetype ....
