Full Version: Evolution Anyone?
OESF Forums > Distros, Development, and Model Specific Forums > Distro Support and Discussion > pdaXrom

I know Evolution is a bit beefy for the Zaurus (SLC-750), but I already use it on the desktop and with MultiSync the syncing would be awesome. I have tried KO/PI but while the Zaurus part is nice, getting a desktop version up and running is painful. I have not tried to sync between them yet because my wifi card died just after getting KO/PI installed on my Zaurus. I use RHFC2 at work and debian Sarge at home, and Evolution is readily available for both, but KO/PI is not. However, the KO/PI documentation for getting it running on the desktop is awful, so I could very well be missing something.

Well anyway, if anybody comes up with and Evlolution IPK I would be happy to be a tester. I don't need any funky plugins or anything.


I took a whack at getting this puppy to compile but I can't get around some db3 errors. Please understand I don't know squat about compiling stuff, I'm just groping around in the dark here. The first error I get is that db3 3.1.17 is required, so I installed it. I still get the error, but if I specify the right path to db.h then it complains that it can't find the right library. I even tried updating the requirements to 3.2.9 (which is what is currently installed on by box) and I get the same error. If I compile natively, I don't get the db3 errors, but I get some other errors.

I chose 1.4.6 because it seems to be the most common version in use right now. Namely, I use that version at work, and I know MultiSync works with that version.

Just to keep replying to my own posts...

Evolution 1.5.9 seems to do much better except for the following:

checking for libgtkhtml-3.1... Package libgtkhtml-3.1 was not found in the pkg-config search path.
Perhaps you should add the directory containing `libgtkhtml-3.1.pc'
to the PKG_CONFIG_PATH environment variable
No package 'libgtkhtml-3.1' found

I am sure there are other problems, but this is where the bottle stopped spinning this time. :-)

I don't want to scare you but there are *a lot* of dependencies you have to provide:
From Gentoo evolution-1.4.6 ebuild (sorry, I don't have the 1.5 version):

These are mandatory dependencies (there are more optional). You will have to include builds for these packages. (ergo, most of gnome-base)

The 2.0.2 ebuild:
If you have large CF/SD card, try Debian!
>15.000 packages now, no compile problem, trivial install, no dependance problem(apt-get install evolution)

Some links (and screenshot's ;-):

Compatibility PdaXrom and Debian is right way for get running a lot of programs on pdaXrom!!

Manualy compile single programs is hard, no good and no efective work.

A very good reason for someone to add pdaXrom as a distro to openembedded. A lot of these packages are already in there or can be added easilly. And it would also benefit OZ, Familiar and OpenSimpad.
i for one would love to be able to use evolution on my z. i use an exchange server at home and at work so having a client that can just use it would be perfect.

how is the speed on pocketworkstation? would there be any advantages to having it compiled directly for pdaxrom?
