Straw Working In Chroot Debroot On Pdaxrom
« on: May 02, 2007, 06:48:36 am »
For those interested in a very versatile RSS aggregator,
straw works well running in chroot debian.

I used the backport because newer versions require kernel 2.6, here is my /etc/apt/sources:

deb http://ftp.au.debian.org/debian sarge main contrib non-free
deb http://nonUS.debian.org/debian-non-US sarge/non-US main
deb http://www.backports.org/debian/ sarge-backports main contrib non-free

Then
apt-get update
apt-get install straw

I had a locales problem initially which gives the error:
Gtk-WARNING **: Locale not supported by C library.

This can be fixed by:
export LC_ALL="en_AU"
make sure to have the correct locale installed with
apt-get install locales

I am not sure how to make this setting persistent --- any ideas what the best way to implement such environment variables is in chroot debian?

Then just run
Crd bash
straw

It runs very quickly and works for all sites I've tried (including slashdot, which for some reason doesn't work with liferea)

pdaXrom r198 - testing!, IceWM, Bluetooth modem: Sony Ericsson v600i with 3G.

forgive me, but how do you use chroot debian under pdaxrom (or better pdaxii13) ???

i use Liferea too under pdaxii13 and yes it has some problems with some feeds for some unknown reason... i'm dreaming about a true working rss reader under the zaurus as i tend to use rss a lot these days

The best guide for this is Meanie's site,
[a href=\"http://www.users.on.net/~hluc/myZaurus/custom.html]http://www.users.on.net/~hluc/myZaurus/custom.html[/url]
see the section called "Installing X/Qt"

I installed his jumbo image, and I have a basic howto and a few tweaks listed at:
http://greenant.net/portal/greenant/wiki/InstallingDebian

It takes a fair bit of space and is a little slower than native pdaXrom packages but having access to the huge debian package archive and great dependency management more than makes up for it.
Let me know if you have any problems.

Just noted a fix for the very small default fonts, straw is a gtk2 program so the following controls the font size:

add this to your ~/.gtkrc-2.0 (create the file if it doesn't exist)

gtk-font-name = "Sans 14"

This will change the font size of the default font to 14 points, much better on the eyes!

If anyones interested I have perfected offline RSS reading on my pdaxrom using zort (http://zort.sourceforge.net/).

It runs on apache with PHP, and I have heavily modified the script so I can download the pages as html and browse the feeds in Dillo which is really slick especially just using the scroll keys in pda mode. I've been thinking of doing an post on it but asmost people/probably don't want to have to use apache just to get feeds I kept it to myself.

Let me know if interested and I'll do a post on it.

Here's a sample of Zort heavily modded by me!

For best results view pages in Dillo

(rename .txt to .tgz and unpack)

That looks pretty slick. Currently I grab pages on my desktop using [a href=\"http://sitescooper.taint.org/]Sitescooper[/url] & then copy them over to my Z. But if I could do that directly on the Z, it would elminate a step. Details, packages & setup, please!
GROG!
