so here it is, glibc 2.3.2.  

[a href=\"http://zaurus.earpassion.net/glibc_2.3.2_armv5tel.ipk]http://zaurus.earpassion.net/glibc_2.3.2_armv5tel.ipk[/url]

Mind you, it has not been test throughtly yet,    however i have been running it for about an hour without any problems.

update (i) : i couldnt run firefox   - segmentation fault
update (ii) : it seems the problem of running forefox does not related to the new glibc, since some others reports that they could run firefox fine after upgrading.

If this works, does that mean OpenOffice will install on pdaXrom?

I went here

http://people.debian.org/~rene/openoffice.org/test/arm/

For the arm port... but before I do anything, I notice the installer weighs in at 70mb. So, if OpenOffice is installable on the Z, how much hard disk space are we talking?


Also, if it is installable, anyone care to do a round-up of what's needed and how it's done?

Thanks

I used that installer on debian. It's the same that's been used for "X/Qt - openoffice".
If I remember correctly, it used about 210Mb.
But,
The installer doesn't work for me.
First it said "no more space in /tmp". I moved /tmp to my card. Now it tries to show the "installing..." screen, then it segfaults.

Anyone more luck ?

I'm no expert with linux, so this is just me thinking out loud.

Does it have to be installed?

Could not a working OpenOffice be copied to pdaXrom and run, the same way a working Office can be copied in windows. OK, when you run it it'll shout for missing DLL, but all you do is find them and one by one put them in the right place until it works. Would something similar not work with Linux?

Would you be able to write a "how to" to explain to others exactly how you got to that point, giving links and things to all the packages needed and explaining the steps you've taken so far? I'd really appreciate it, because I could attempt myself and also others could make a similar attempt, the easier it is for people to follow in the footsteps, the more likely it is that someone might work out the correct route to take.

Thanks!!

I'll try to :
Start [a href=\"https://www.oesf.org/forums/index.php?showtopic=9654&hl=debian%20on%20pdaxrom&st=30]here (goto post 41 and keep on reading)[/url]. That's how openoffice on Z started.

Now about running it natively on pdaxrom :
I tried to use the same installer. It needs glibc 2.3 (attached in this thread).
(BTW : to try yourself : download the installer, extract files from the tar.gz, in an aterm : go to where you extracted the files, cd to the dir with the files, run ./setup).

On pdaX I received the message : /tmp/... out of disk-space.
So I removed /tmp (symlink to /var/...), created a dir called tmp on my card, then created a new /tmp pointing to /mnt/card/tmp.

Then the installer can extract all the files, it starts the script, when it tries to show the options window, it segfaults. (it doesn't tell you, but ...)
To know what went wrong, I interupted the installer right after unpacking. I looked in /tmp, fount the installer files, moved them somewhere else, tried to run the setup in there -> segfault. (That's how I know)

The other way :
I downloaded the tar.gz created by Meanie. It is based on the same installer, but includes the installed files. I extracted the files, mounted the included cramfs, tried to run the setup in there (which is supposed to install some files in my home = "user installation"). It segfaults when it tries to show the same window.

Hope this helps you a bit,
Chero.

hehe, I'll try and see if I can follow that when I get home and have some time. I'm thinking this may be a weekend thing, lol, when something a bit scary like that comes along my thoughts are:

Need peace, quiet, a cup of tea and my Z backed up! I'm thinking that if you're linux knowledge is higher than mine, I'm unlikely to succeed, but I'm gonna try.

If anyone else manages to get this going before the weekend, let me know!

How did you do that please, step by step, am a bit new to this. lol

Do you know where openoffice tried to install to? This tmp or somewhere else on the system?

You've got the installer.tar.gz, right ?

Make sure you have the glibc pointed to in this thread (dated aug. 05 2005 !!!)
I also installed the glibc-local-... from the same site.

I have installed libart-..., pcre, perl and all python modules from the feed (don't know if they are needed, but just being complete about my setup)

I also have the attached file installed (tcsh)(a c-shell required for compiling the source, don't know if the installer uses it)

I did everything on my 1Gb SD :

Code: [Select]
# cd /mnt/card
# rm /tmp
# mkdir tmp
# ln -s /mnt/card/tmp /tmp
# mkdir OOinstall
# cd OOinstall
# tar -xzf /mnt/card/OOo..... (name of the installer.tar.gz)
# cd */*/*/normal
# mkdir /mnt/card/OOo
# ./install --prefix=/mnt/card/OOo --single

That's as fas as I got.
The installer now seems to run fine, but when I try to launch something, it doesn't work. I don't have a .openoffice in my /home/root. I guess we're still missing something, but what ?

the files are installed in /mnt/card/OOo/OpenOffice.org1.1.4/(program)

Anyone more luck ?

likewise, it got so far and then a dialog window pops up saying unrecoverable error

So near, but yet so far.

tried again, using the interactive setting, but that gets as far as putting a tool bar onthe screen, but nothing more happened :-(

Am guessing there is something that's missing somewhere preventing this from running and probably preventing the actual programs from running.

If anyone has any ideas, would be great to know!

Just thought...

Would pdaXrom log somewhere a detailed error message of the fatal error it gets when Open Office tries to start?

If so, does anyone know where this would be?

status update :

About glibc 2.3.2 :
Could it be that the included "libpthread" is not complete ? The size is quite a lot smaller than the one that comes with pdaX. All the other files seem to be around the same size.

About openoffice :
I think it hangs (crashes) due to an incomplete libpthread. I googled a bit and found out that "libsal" uses "libpthread". By checking it on the Z, I noticed what i've written above.

The good news :
I was already able to run the "user setup" (with nice screens, logo's, boxes to fill in my name, ...). This created the user-files in my /home/root
I had to add some xlibs, fonts, etc to do so.
I hope this means we're making progress.
