Hi, this is sort of an ongoing learning process for me. I posted before here, http://www.oesf.org/forums/inde...=ST&f=91&t=6599 .. I figured I would just start a new post since that one was so old and try and get things back up and running. Okay, so I needed to do two things according to Lardman..
( a ) link libc2.3.2 off my sd card
( b ) get x windows on my zaurus
well, I sorta am at a loss for both. I downloaded libc6_2.3.2-1_armv4l-strongarm.ipk off the openzaurus experimental feed. i did two things, not sure which way i am supposed to go with this.... I at first tried (just to see if it would work) using ar -x on the file and using gzip on it to make it compatible with my rom. I tried this and got the same message (next line) that i've been getting (so I uninstalled)
pd: /lib/libc.so.6: version `GLIBC_2.3' not found (required by pd)
pd: /lib/libpthread.so.0: version `GLIBC_2.3.2' not found (required by pd)
then i look /lib out of the data.tar.gz of the ipk and put that into /mnt/card/lib, so the libraries are there, I just don't understand lardman's instructions as to how you create a link to them, or how one would override the older libc_2.2.2 which comes default on the sharprom...
I have a feeling there is more to getting PD running then just the above. For example, on the site ( http://gige.xdv.org/pd/PDa ) it says it needs the tcl/tk library or framework or whatever it is to run. Lardman said to install x/qt . I grabbed the following off sourceforge...
I installed 'em, and got a few new application icons. Start X and X/Qt Server... yeah!
If I run the first, nothing happens that I can see, maybe its a process ( i don't know how to view my processes yet, still learning!) . when I run x/qt I get a graphical interface and can move the cursor around quite easily, which is fun and all. I hit the menu button and can shutdown out of it.. . hrm, well that seems to be working at least, is it???
(now, I also heard of another method, something involving x11zaurus_0.8_arm.ipk, qtopia-x_0.1-arm.ipk, and keypebble.... I have no idea how to really run either, so as a n00b, I am asking help. )
I run xinit and get : (sorry if this seems stupid, I feel stupid posting this)
xinit: No such file or directory (errno 2): no server "X" in PATH
Use the -- option, or make sure that /opt/QtPalmtop/bin is in your path and
that "X" is a program or a link to the right type of server
for your display. Possible server names include:
xinit: Connection refused (errno 111): unable to connect to X server
xinit: No such process (errno 3): Server error.
It should be noted that I have no idea what xwindows to any degree, at any level.
So really I have two questions here that I am hoping to get answered...
1.) How can I glibc2.3.2 onto my zaurus through linking to the library off my sd card? ( I realize I could just install oz 3.3.6 pre1 BUT, I do not have a CF card right now, just a wlan card which isn't a combo card so I would like to try this method first before dishing out for another card, even though they aren't expensive)
2.) Can I get a quick xwindows tutorial. How does it work? How do I start it up? How would PD work in conjunction with xwindows (I only know how to run pd by typing it in the console, but even with the glibc libraries there, I don't see how running it in the console would send it to xwindows and bring up the graphical interface for the application....)
3.).. oh and 3, is tcl/tk on my zaurus now? did i miss something when i installed xwindows?
Thank you so much for your time, I am sorry to be such a pester. If I get this running it'll be loads of fun for me so I'm very motivated to learn. I hope you will help me get there!
oh and one last question 4.) how do i view (in the console) what process are running, and how do I kill them off? Thanks..
