LibrieX released

Greetings,

I have released LibrieX (or Librié, eXtended). It includes the TCP/IP connection part formerly known as LibrieNet, and a preliminary port of the Nano-X graphic server.

For more information please see http://dev.hyperstruct.net/libriex.

Any plans for a Reader version?

Unfortunately not, as I do not own a Reader, but if hw/sw are actually the same porting should be easy.

This looks awesome. I'm really dying to do some sony reader development. I hope you buy one soon.

Actually, some people have already succeeded running programs on the reader. However, how are you able to control the screen of the librie? This part i think hasn't been figured out too well for the reader. Were you able to gain direct access to the framebuffer, and can you control other things like screen refreshes?

I'm afraid that is a bit unlikely. Going from the Librié to the Reader isn't much of an upgrade. ;-)

Then it should be possible to run the USB console/root shell, too.

Hmmm, doesn't the Reader use the same hardware? The same knowledge should apply.

That was the first step. The second was modifying the Nano-X server and having it take care of drawing and refreshing on its own, so that individual ("client") programs don't have to.

Anyway, some technical background is here: http://dev.hyperstruct.net/libriex/#background

The really interesting thing would be porting a full-fledged X server (yes, it can and does run on similarly sized devices). Then you would be able to run a browser, a text editor, a terminal, etc. and basically turn the device into an e-ink tablet. (Ah, time. Sigh.)
