Calibre on Ubuntu/ARM?
I just tried to install the latest Calibre (0.6.14) on my shiny new Sharp NetWalker PC-Z1 (one of these).
The PC-Z1 runs Ubuntu 9.04/ARM, on limited resources.
The binary install doesn't check for architecture and therefore tries to grab an x86 version. (Oops.)
The source install ... doesn't; it gets as far as complaining "No module PyQt4" then expires.
Has anyone built Calibre against Ubuntu 9.04 on ARM? (I ask because I'm a little reluctant to start installing the whole Qt universe on a machine with only a 4Gb root partition that's already half-full ... and no English language restore image available to me yet!)
(I'm happy to settle for the command line tools without the GUI, if Qt doesn't like Ubuntu/ARM.)
Edit: I've just discovered how/where to build a system restore microSD card for my Netwalker. Once I've done that, I'll feel a lot happier about trying to get Qt up and running on it (and fixing any other dependencies I can deal with). As Kubuntu is available for ARM, I'd be astonished if Qt isn't available ready-built.
I note that there's an old version of Calibre (0.4.something) packaged for Ubuntu 9.04. Is anyone actively maintaining the Calibre Ubuntu package?
