The make file did not produce this or did I miss something?
I tried to integrate all of the new changes from the main repo to the port (was a bit of a hassle because much was restructured) but it failed to start at all in the end. (Screen rotate is supposed to work in some way.)
My source version can be found at: https://github.com/luksurious/kindlepdfviewer
The compiled version is available here (framebuffer_config missing, but doesn't make a difference for starting): https://dl.dropbox.com/u/9098054/kin...ithupdates.zip
. NOT WORKING! for anyone who did not read the whole post
Is there a way to debug the device to see why the software isn't starting at all?
Yes, framebuffer_configure is just a small binary that sets the framebuffer bpp to 8 instead of 16. The source is somewhere in this forum as well.
To debug it, setup ssh/telnet and start it from there. And if that's not enough try installing gdb (extract a debian package for armel).
Great to see one person more getting started with kobo development
