Hello all,

Does anyone know of any programs for pdaxrom that will let me perform xsl-fo etc transforms? The editor part is obviously just a text editor, although a specialist application would be nice as well. I couldn't see any, but there might be something I missed...

Thanks
Allan

Well... libxml is currently in the pdaXrom, so that's a good start. I can't imagine compiling libxslt with the SDK would be too hard... I can actually give it a shot sometime today. That gets you started...

In my three-second google search I saw "xmlroff - xmlroff (http://xmlroff.sourceforge.net/) is a free open source project based on libxml2 and other GNOME libraries. It is written in C"

Is that something that would work for you? I wonder how many gnome libraries it actually uses... if it's not much than it should be ok to compile, too.

Hi Jason,

xmlroff certainly looks like it would probably work.

I must try and set up the SDK compiler on my machine.... (edit - I guess I can't - just looked and I don't see a cross compiler for PPC or a native on the c1000 sad.gif )

Thanks

Ok... just tried to compile xmlroff... it has a dependency on libgnomeprint >= 2.8 but the version in pdaxrom is 2.6.2. I'm afraid if I try and compile a newer version of ligbnomeprint I might get into dependency hell and wind up compiling a good portion of gnome 2.8.

Maybe an older version supports an older libgnomeprint. I was able to compile the latest libxml2 and libxslt (xslt required an upgrade of libxml2), though.

That's wonderful - thanks. Any chance you could post them? I just remembered that I installed Virtual PC on my powerbook ages ago (used it at the time and not since...) so I'll try installing a cross compiler on that (its getting complicated... lol). Then I'll fidget around with whatever packages I can find as well.

Thanks

Sure, I'll make an ipk sometime today. Currently they'll install to /usr/local/* which might not be best since then you'll have two libxml installations. I think I'll redo libxml to install to /usr/* so it will upgrade the existing package.

At least with libxslt you'll have xsltproc to do transforms... I'll try a few when I install it on my Z.

As for VitrualPC... sashz and laze have been talking about a livecd that would work for compiling stuff... you might just be able to boot up VirtualPC off that ISO when it comes out...? I'm not familiar with virtualpc but I know vmware will boot off an ISO image.

Hi,

I think VirtualPC will boot a LiveCD, it certainly boots from CD for installing an OS (Windows...) so I think that is definitely my top option. I presume the compiler is gcc based, so I might have a look at setting up an environment for cross compiling in OSX as well.

Thanks very much for having a look at the xsl stuff for me - it is much appreciated!

Here we go:

libxml2 2.6.20
and
libxslt 1.1.14

They'll both install into /usr/local/* so it won't clobber your existing libxml2. I've installed them both on my C1k and ran a quick xstlproc and it worked fine without modifying my LD_LIBRARY_PATH, etc...

Let me know if you have any problems. The libxml2 package is kind of big (4mb)... I could probably split that up into a couple ipks if it's a problem. It has some sample code, manpages, include files... stuff you probably don't need/want.

Fantastic - thank you very much. I'll give it a go on my Z when I get back home tonight. I'll let you know how I get on.
