Good luck :-)

I had to take pdaXrom off my Z for the working week, will head back to it and try again at the weekend.

I'm looking forward to ditching the sharp rom infavour of pdaXrom.

Not that i'm aware of, but :
It seems that you can't upgrade glibc in big steps (I read about this while googling).
If you can still find the time, maybe try upgrading to 2.3 first, then change the includes in the cross-compiler, then try compiling 2.3.2. By the way, I think 2.3 is enough for the OO-installer.

Good luck,
I had to add some xlibs before I could run the user setup. I'll try to package them this evening.

If we don't give up, we can make this work !!

Am I right in guessing that if this works and Open Office installs, other newer apps will work too on pdaXrom and your efforts will help others add even more apps to the platform?

First I needed to change /temp (see earlier in this thread)

Then I had to add some xlibs (can't upload here - the file is 6Mb)

I installed glibc-2.3.2 (look in this thread). But this seemed not to be complete (look in this thread).

I downloaded the libc6 deb package for arm. I tried only to replace my libpthread-10.so, but that didn't work. I created an ipk from the complete deb-package and installed it.

This totally messed up the system (look at the screenshots : no window-titles ; I can't set time and date - can't enter anything in the boxes - can't read OK or cancel buttons - ...)

But, aterm seemed to work fine, so I gave it a shot.
I could run ./setup from the installed version (look earlier in this thread). With all the windows, boxes, logo's, ... .
Then I could run ./soffice from the installed files in my /home/root/OpenOffice1.1.4
- a .doc opens the writer
- a .xls opens the spreadsheet
Haven't tried anything else yet.

We now know it works, but we desperately need a fully working glibc-2.3.x to get any further. My Z now runs OOo, but is quite unusable due to the installation of the debian libc6.

So, everybody with a crosscompiler (or native) : please try to get glibc-2.3.2 fully working.

I'm so impressed, baby steps and all that, you've made such progress!! :-)

I guess it's too early to tell how fast it seems to work?

I wonder if the updated glibc could be included in the next rc? There is some real progress being made here :-)

Yes, it is too early to tell. My Z doesn't behave quite normal right now.

I've been trying to compile glibc myself (without success, but I didn't have the configure options I PM'ed you. I've tried 2.3 - 2.3.1 - 2.3.2 - 2.3.3
I got almost no errors on 2.3.3 (all the others gave me loads of errors, but I didn't succeed in making a working version) - maybe that's the one we should focus on ?
