Minimo Installer for the iLiad (beta)

I'm releasing a beta of Mozilla Minimo for the iLiad.

This hasn't been thoroughly tested, so your mileage may very. It's a standard installer, but it will remove the existing Minimo on your iLiad. It's possible that it may break the stock html viewer. This is only available for 2.11, so you can reflash if you have any problems.

I'm attaching some screenshots.

To exit the program, open a new tab, or change settings, you will need to choose from the menu on the upper left (there's not an icon for the menu, just blank space). See the screenshots for an example.

Please give me lots of feedback. The refreshed can be changed by editing the iliad_refresh.conf in the Minimo folder of your programs directory. You can find any error output in output.txt

Edit: Attachment Updated. Should fix some refresh issues. Added connection manager scripts from Dillo.

Those who previously installed should be able to run new installer without issues.

Hi,
I wrote this via Iliad/minimo/usb-keyboard/wifi after a view crashes but the feelng is great
It seem crashes came from german-usb-keyboard and differences with the keyboard driver, as long as i do not use the backspace from the numberblock anything works stable..
Installer works nice and soo easy..

Hello,

I am having some trouble -- the menu does not work at all, refreshing does not seem to happen, and the back and forward arrow keys on the (on screen) keyboard when entering a url crash minimo.

My /usr/local/lib/libX11.so.6 is 937538 Jun 06 -- Could it be the wrong one?

Ok so I've got my new Iliad sitting on the desk next to me. I've got an unpacked Zip file on my desktop and no idea how to install it on the Iliad. Do I need other software as well? Thanks in advance (I'm off to change my answer to the iLiad Owners: How technologically oriented are you? thread)

Hi,
@awi - Yes you have to use a connection manager like connectionMgr_script or wireless-101107-PL from this forum and start the network manual before starting minimo.

@Boris - (copied fom HarryT from this forum, hope it┤s ok )
You need to request and download the shell access package from iRex first, than
1. Download the zip file of the installation package.
2. Unzip it on your PC or Mac.
3. Copy the installer folder to the root of a CF or SD card.
4. Put the card in your iLiad.
5. Navigate to it with the "Contents Lister".
6. Tap the "Install <whatever>" item that shows up in the Contents Lister.

That's all there is to it. Once you've installed it, the contents lister will show the new place where to start minimo, don┤t forget to start network before..

greets

It seems, that i cant quit the minomo on my iLiad. At least it seems to leave its image permanently in the image buffer. I cant get anything else on my screen, but the minimo.

I think I understand why I am having so much trouble.

In error.txt it says

iliad_refresh.conf: unrecognized refresh type: typing 400

In iliad_refresh.conf it says

typing 400

What is it supposed to say in iliad_refresh.conf?

Is minimo itself still responding? If not, this is the usual way for the iLiad to hang (i.e. with a frozen screen image) - all you need do is press the reset button on the back and then turn the machine back on.

It is the same hacked libX11 in the installer. I just stripped the debug information to keep the file smaller.
