Emulator?

I'd like to try OI, but the only ebook device I have is a Sony PRS-500. Is there an emulator available, or can I run it inside a VM, etc on my desktop? Thanks

So, no way to run it without one of the supported devices? Do developers have to reflash a device everytime they want to test something?

There is no emulator yet. You can try to compile and test madshelf, fbreader and coolreader on your desktop.

This page is more relevant: http://openinkpot.org/wiki/ApplicationsDevelopment

But the one you've mentioned is also up-to-date, though it describes the actual building the apps for the target device.

I'm trying to build madshelf on Ubuntu 8.10 (Intrepid) following the instructions on http://openinkpot.org/wiki/MadShelf.

I'm stuck at this bit:

Quote:
To build madshelf you need libsqlite3-dev (the one from your distribution should work) and the dummy-libextractor from the OI-git http://git.openinkpot.org/libextractor-dummy.git/.
I got libsqlite3-dev from the repository, but I'm not sure what I need to do to get dummy-libextractor. I don't have any git experience. I tried installing git and checking out the URL given:

sudo apt-get install git git-svn
git checkout http://git.openinkpot.org/libextractor-dummy.git/

but it says "not a git repository".

What do I need to do? Thanks

Great, thanks. I got the code. Now what? :-)

Am I supposed to install libextractor-dev from the repository, then add overwrite using this extractor.h?

You can install either one or another, libextractor-dummy just does not pull the unnecessary dependencies.

OK, thanks. For simplicity, I just installed libextractor-dev from the repository.

autoreconf now runs, but I get the following error from configure:

Quote:
...
checking pkg-config is at least version 0.9.0... yes
checking for EWL... configure: error: Package requirements (ewl >= 0.5.2.042) were not met:

No package 'ewl' found

Consider adjusting the PKG_CONFIG_PATH environment variable if you
installed software in a non-standard prefix.

Alternatively, you may set the environment variables EWL_CFLAGS
and EWL_LIBS to avoid the need to call pkg-config.
See the pkg-config man page for more details.
What am I missing?

Hrm. Thanks for your help guys, but I think installing a whole new window manager is more than I'm up for :-)
