Zaurus Port Of Treeline

Hi zenyatta,

I downloaded the new Sharp ipk from your site to try it out, but (on Cacko 1.21 at least) there's not much improvement : the installer applet ignores the package and ipkg still complains :

# ipkg install treeline_0.8.1_sharp_arm.ipk
zcat: treeline_0.8.1_sharp_arm.ipk: not in gzip format
zcat: stdin: unexpected end of file
ipkg_install_file: ERROR unpacking control.tar.gz from treeline_0.8.1_sharp_arm.ipk

(sorry :-)

I'm running Sharp ROM 1.32 on a 5600 and the installer does not find it.

I'd be looking to replace hnb if I could get this working. I'd like to sync certain files (todo.opml, bookmarks.opml etc...) with my web space which would provide me with an alternative interface along the lines of: [a href=\"http://www.netcrucible.com/xslt/opml.html]http://www.netcrucible.com/xslt/opml.html[/url]

Took a closer look at this just now. It looks like the bundle is a tar'd tar file instead of a gzip'd tar file

From your error messages, it looks like you had that much figured out though.

The other problem is that control.tar should contain ./home/..., not /home.

To fix (on your zaurus):
su -
cd /usr/mnt.rom/cf/software (or wherever you put your ipk's)
mkdir treeline
mv treeline_0.8.1_sharp_arm.ipk treeline
cd treeline
tar xf treeline_0.8.1_sharp_arm.ipk
gunzip control.tar.gz
tar xf control.tar
rm control.tar
tar cf control.tar ./home
gzip control.tar
tar cf treeline_fix_0.8.1_sharp_arm
gzip treeline_fix_0.8.1_sharp_arm
mv treeline_fix_0.8.1_sharp_arm.gz ../treeline_fix_0.8.1_sharp_arm.ipk
cd ..
ipkg install treeline_fix_0.8.1_sharp_arm.ipk

So in the development bundle, edit the file 'make' on line 52 to be "./home" rather than just "home".

OK folks,
I would like everyone who is interested in this program to let me know
- the ROM (including version) they want to run it under,
- whether that ROM is available for the SL-5500, and
- where that ROM can be downloaded.

I'm using the Sharp ROM v3.13 for the sl-5500.  I'd been wanting to try this application, but it has taken FOREVER for me to get around to installing python.  I installed a python 'image' from here: [a href=\"http://pyqplayer.sourceforge.net/cgi-bin/bin/view/Main/PythonZaurusImage]PythonZaurusImage[/url] which was entirely painless, and went on the SD card (~10 megs).

I 'installed' treeline from the IPK here (yours): Journey.sk ZAURUS TREELINE

It would not recognize in the Sharp Rom add programs utility, so I extracted it on my PC and moved it onto SD by pieces, and created some symlinks so it would work.

I've fiddled with this program for a day, and started really using it today, so far so good.
