2. Link it in /usr/share/webkit-1.0/pillow/debug_cmds.json
So I uploaded the install-directory, connected via putty to my KPW,, disabled write-protection, changed to my install-dir and tried ./configure...
The result was thus:
configure:2242: error: no acceptable C compiler found in $PATH
Any suggestions about what compiler to put where, to be found by the script?
Or was my plan just complete nuts?
An **Embedded** Linux (or other) system is NOT a complete system.
Besides not having documentation, it does not have the program development tools and libraries installed.
Installing them outside of the USB storage area will run out of space long before everything is there and in-place.
So your choices are:
Setup a native development system in the USB storage area -
Setup a native development system under emulation off-Kindle -
Setup a cross-compile development system off-Kindle -
Search twobob's recent threads, he does a lot of all of the above.
Including a GTK+ (and someday webkit) application environment that works "cross-Kindle".
Translation: Your e-mail client might "just work" if you follow his recent postings.
At this point - I will turn answering your question over to twobob.
