@ixtab: Ha, I was actually going to do that in the next couple of hours, so, well, thanks ;P.

I'll take a look at the awk issue (FWIW, running gawk 4.1.0 here).

@ixtab: Pushed something, could you check if that fixes it on your system?

(I'm guessing awk is mawk or some other weird awk implementation on your system, and not GNU awk).

Hmm. Thanks, but it still doesn't seem to fix the problem.

Because I don't even know where the problem even comes from, there's a new branch which contains the problematic files. Essentially, in src/com/mobileread/ixtab/kindlelauncher/resources:

parse-commented.awk is the input file.
parse.awk should be the output file.
parse.awk.ok is a sample of a working output file
parse.awk.produced is the output file.

The problem is mostly: why does my computer not produce anything reasonable, while others do? I honestly don't know, and I need your help.

PS:
Code:
ixtab@mbp:~$ awk --version|head -n 1
GNU Awk 3.1.8
Too old?

@ixtab: Oh, wow. .

I'll see if I can dig up an old gawk build from Debian, see if that's the culprit... .

EDIT: Yup, reproduced with gawk 3.1.7 from Debian oldstable.

I'll see how mawk fares, and if I can figure out a way to make this play nice with gawk 3.1... .

EDIT²: Yup, behavior changes between gawk 3 & gawk 4 to be expected. So, err, yeah, not sure it's fixable nicely, and awk gives me headaches, so... ;p.

Nope, mawk falls on its ass too.

I added a version check to the wrapper, so at last it dies and halts the build instead of bundling a broken script...

gawk-4.0.1 (from Debian stable) handles it properly, so I just check gawk < 4

Thanks a lot for the investigation and the insights!

But,... how do we go on now? Because the MKK is now released with its new name, it makes sense for KUAL to refer to it as such (if only to avoid confusion). Thus, I think that we should release a new KUAL version, probably v 2.3.0. But at least all of the devs involved should be able to compile a working version of it. (I don't know for the others, but at least I can't with my Ubuntu 12.04 LTS -- and hey, I already upgraded from 10.04 LTS!)

So... Is there any (more or less easy) way to change the awk script so that it will also work with GNU awk 3.x? I apologize in advance for the headaches, but that would be terrific.*

(*) as a side note: I tend to keep my "main dev computer" on a well-tested and stable release. That is why I'm still on Ubuntu 12.04 LTS (and had even been on 10.04 LTS until recently). I'm not at all opposed to testing newer stuff (in fact, my new laptop only works on debian/jessie), but I think that we should try to stick to a reasonable "lowest common denominator" when developing, instead of assuming that everyone has the latest and greatest version of all tools...

I'll see if I can figure something out without making my brain implode ;o).

EDIT: Got something that's mostly okay w/ whatever flavour of awk is on OSX. Still not perfect, but hopefully that'll be enough for gawk 3, will check tomorrow.

Released v2.3 \o/.

I also updated the Helper extension to be slightly smarter (ie. mostly model-aware), and stepk's KUAL add-ons one to work in tandem with the latest version on the sorting buttons front ;p.

See the NEWS file for more details, but basically:

* PW2 support
* Cleans itself up on exit
* Minor under-the-hood changes (cleanup/refactoring/fixes/performance)

Also: the filename changed! Pay attention to that . Delete the previous version (preferably from the Kindle's UI, if you don't want a broken thumbnail on FW 5.x) before copying the new one .

The first post should have been updated to reflect these changes, but if something doesn't make sense, do mention it .

delete the gpg stuff if you like.
the server for those files has been off-line for months now, due to lack of interest (both that of people to use it, and myself to maintain it).

@knc1: Gotcha. The files being down is a pretty good reason to forget about it, indeed .

Hello, I've got a Kindle 4 Black and I'm not stuck at the "this device is not authorized as a test Kindle ... " error.
I've searched this thread and see that I'm supposed to install the prerequisites package, however, it is now nowhere to be found. This link seems to be broken. Someone mentioned the "developer key" and I'm not sure where to find it either.

This is the first day that I used a Kindle but I really wanted to read DJVU files. So following the Librerator post I've landed on KUAL without success. Can anyone help me? TIA!
