I suggest you use Code Sourcery/Mentor Graphics 2012.03 (arm-2012.03-57-arm-none-linux-gnueabi-i686-pc-linux-gnu.tar.bz2). That's the preferred toolchain.

Which is "in stock" in our DIY-KeK resource pool.
Although it may not be listed in the appendix B index, it is there (I just looked).

In general, the gcc authors have been tightening up the syntax checking and some of the flags (which are not in your command line) may have changed their defaults for ARM

Link to the on-line documents in our "Prefix: Tools" page, near the bottom.

Grep that file tree for the march= assignments.
/dev/null that "native" not all toolchains support that. Use the march setting you show in the post a couple prior to this one.

3. in file chooser, press L. This will open a list of books that you opened recently. If you use that list to open a book, closing a book will return to that list, so it should be fairly easy to switch between them. KPV doesn't save full state of the book on closing, so it won't be exactly as you left it, but with a few keypresses more you'll get there .

Alternatively, you can copy all the books you want to quick reference to the same dir. (that is, use directories instead of collections. I wish amazon used this too )
Yes, as you said this is a partial solution, but unfortunately not a very practical one.
Anyways, thanks again for your help!

What is the standard way to navigate in a .pdf document with the current version of the viewer?
I am usually using landscape orientation with some zooming. With an old version from several months ago I can press down the 5-way and then use the 5-way for scrolling. When the end of the page is reached I press "next page"(">" on KDXG) to jump to the beginning of the new page(I personally like Duokan's UI more - "<" and ">" for both scrolling and changing the pages - but the above method is OK too). With the new version, when the bottom of a page is reached using the 5-way, the "next page" button moves the view to the end(and not the beginning as it was in the old version) of the next page. There is also a "P" key with help string "toggle page-keys mode: viewport/page". But the "viewport" mode again doesn't seem to work for me - when the end of a page is reached it jumps to some point around the middle of the next page!? Also I am not sure if I did something wrong, but now I can't even scroll to the end of page with the fiveway - it only goes to a certain position and won't move beyond that point...
Is there more comprehensive help somewhere(not counting the source code ), that explains these things?

Usually (in over 95% of cases) you'll want to set bounding box (bbox) first, and then use fit-to-content-width zoom mode. In that mode, page forward/backward will move viewport, and when the end of the page is reached, it will change page. If page mode is selected, page buttons will always change page.

Page/viewport mode switch only works (has effect) in "smart" zoom modes - "smart" zoom modes being fit-to-content-width and 2-column-mode.

The largest part of the remaining 5% of use cases, user will want to use 2-column mode - usefull for reading texts with 2 columns. In 2 column mode, pressing page forward/backwards (as well as pressing fiveway keys) will move viewport so the next part you need to read comes next automatically.

In all other modes, pressing fiveway just pans the page predetermined amount of pixels (very rarely useful).

I'd say that of the remaining zoom modes, the only one that's somewhat useful is full page mode, for setting bbox. The rest of the modes - well, maybe in some very, very rare occasion .

I hope you'll find this at least a bit helpful.

Hey guys, any news on the Paperwhite support? I can see there is a JB for the latest fw on the forum and I am still undecided whether to get KPW or Bookeen Frontlight and the PDF Viewer is a deal breaker for me.
Thanks for the good work!

There are people working on the paperwhite support, so it should be useable soon.

However, it still remains the case that Kindle Keyboard (aka "Kindle 3") is the best/superior combination of hardware and software on an eInk device and if you need to read PDF files (presumably scientific ones, formatted for A4 paper size?) then the best device to use is Kindle DXG. So, if you own both Kindle 3 and DXG then you are perfectly well equipped for many years to come, assuming that the technology moves at the same slow pace as it did since 1970, i.e. nothing really worthwhile happened in computer industry since 1970s except Unix, TeX and Linux (and its derivatives like Android).
