trying to compile sylpheed (mail-reader) on KPW

Hello everybody

I'd like to run an email-client on my KPW. Since I could'nt find any similar project, I thought of trying it by myself...

So, my idea was:
1. Compile and install Sylpheed 1.9.0 (since it uses GTK v1.2.6) http://sylpheed.sraoss.jp/sylpheed/v1.9/
2. Link it in /usr/share/webkit-1.0/pillow/debug_cmds.json
3. Profit

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:

Spoiler:
This file contains any messages produced by compilers while
running configure, to aid debugging if configure makes a mistake.

It was created by configure, which was
generated by GNU Autoconf 2.59. Invocation command line was

$ ./configure

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.

That would be nice. BTW, aditya was (hopefully) going to crosscompile ist.

Having the file, aditya told me, I would be able to start it using Xephyr. I found twobobs posting "Xephyr Xchat kindle touch", but I don't understand, how to use Xephyr. Also found that thread about installing Debian on KPW (which I really would like to), but I don't get it either.
Just have to read a lot more...

Could someone please provide a link, how to use Xephyr?

Thanks,

Oliver

so: Portrait

Xephyr :1 -title "L:A_N:application_ID:xephyr_PC:N" -screen 600x800 -cc 4 -dpi 155 &

and Lanscape

Xephyr :1 -title "L:A_N:application_ID:xephyr_O:R_PC:N" -screen 800x600 -cc 4 -dpi 155 &

(you can play with the DPI)

Then call your app like

DISPLAY=:1 myApplication

(I ended up with a Xephyr called Xephyr-5 in one of my builds.. just call Xephyr however it is called.)

To shut it down...

killall Xephyr

Just to get it right: I unpacked to /mnt/us/export/Xephyr-5.
Then I tried your commands above via Putty. Even from /bin, putty responds
Spoiler:
[root@kindle bin]# Xephyr-5 :1 -title "L:A_N:application_ID:xephyr_PC:N" -screen 600x800 -cc 4 -dpi 155 &
-sh: Xephyr-5: not found
[1]+ Done(127) Xephyr-5 :1 -title "L:A_N:application_ID:xephyr_PC:N" -screen 600x800 -cc 4 -dpi 155


What does that mean? not found? Done?

Obviously you will need a working Xephyr.

I would advise you change your root accounts home dir to something on the FAT... or there will be configuration pain...

A window manager is helpful... I used blackbox

I used x11vnc here to type....

IT worked outside of debian however which was I could really hope for without a title hack. (attached)

What does

How do I tell Xephyr, to use the right path to /usr/share/fonts...?

Edit: I changed root accounts home dir to /mnt/us/root/ (even tried / ) but to no working results...

Well, that's exactly what I'm trying to get done...
Spoiler:

Fatal server error:
could not open default font 'fixed'

...is all I get.

What does
_XSERVTransSocketOpenCOTSServer: Unable to open socket for inet6
_XSERVTransOpen: transport open failed for inet6/kindle:1
_XSERVTransMakeAllCOTSServerListeners: failed to open listener for inet6
mean?
How do I tell Xephyr, to use the right path to /usr/share/fonts...?

Edit: I changed root accounts home dir to /mnt/us/root/ (even tried / ) but to no working results...
The Kindles do not have/use IPV6, you need to try to connect via IPV4. Not sure about the font though.

the ipv6 message is a nothing. the right flag will make the warning go away.

unsure why the /usr fix didn't work... I suppose you did double double check the sym link is "right".

So in the absence of better advice. Here is a snapshot of exactly how mine is configured. and the fonts I use.
