Offline wikipedia for DR

I still believe that the DR's, especially the DR1000 with an easily exchangeable external card with up to 32 GB, would be ideal for off-line wikipedia and wiktionary.

I couldn't get the procedure described here
http://www.mobileread.com/forums/showthread.php?t=77453
to work all the way, probably because I did not manage to produce the required data files correctly, but in fact it was possible to start the server. Furthermore, it required many external programs and even on the computer, after following
http://jsomers.net/blog/offline-wikipedia
the result was ok but not great, I was not able to get a correct rendering of mathematical formulas for instance.

Alternatives seem to be
http://aarddict.org/ or http://evopedia.info/

There has been a port of the latter for the Boox M92, so, since my developer skills are in-existent, I have just tried to adapt what has been done over there
http://www.mobileread.com/forums/sho...9&postcount=69

Over course it does not really work, the error message I get on the emulator is

root@qemuarm:/media/mmcblk0p1/Programs/_evopedia# ./_evopedia.sh
./evopedia: error while loading shared libraries: libQtGui.so.4: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
bind: Address already in use

Any chance to make this work ?

evopedia makes extensive use of Qt, so you either need to compile the Qt libraries and install them, or you need a statically linked build of evopedia. I am currently trying the latter, please stay tuned.

Qt has been ported to the Iliad (see this thread) but I think that some work needs to be done for the DR to get screen refreshes correct.

Did anyone try already?

When trying to play around with the qemu, I very quickly get "no space left on device", so my question is: how to allocate more space to the SD card on the emulator ?
