Hello,

I have some questions about working with Nimbus and the LK8000 codebase. I am hoping this thread can be used to coordinate "How To" information on these topics, and make it easier for everyone.

Here are my initial questions:

  • Is there a Forum Post or other document that explains how the core LK8000 developers (such as Coolwind) would prefer people to submit code-changes back to the github repository?
    (NOTE: Some of us have never used GitHub before; only other tools like SVN or VSS)

  • Does the Nimbus system include a GUI interface (such as the X Window System) that's already configured for use? Are there any GUI development tools that you recommend using within Nimbus?

  • Does the Nimbus system include an IDE or other advanced editor (either from the command-line or GUI)? It would be nice to use an IDE to help track includes & dependencies across various source files. If an IDE is already included in Nimbus, does that IDE tie into the github tools automatically, or are they managed separately?



Thanks again for putting in the effort to make Nimbus available!

--Noel
P.S. I found a couple of the LK8000-related README files in various directories. But if you don't know they're there then you may miss them - I'll try to post them to this thread later today, for reference by others who are just starting out with Nimbus.

  • first of all read this :

  • we have included Git Gui "SmartGit", for start read this file :

  • No IDE installed.
    I use Netbeans, easy to use and configure, but remote debuging on real device don't work (tested with gdbserver and kobo only).
    I have recently tested Eclipse CDT, more powerfull, need big screen (forget it on 13" Laptop), Remote debuging work fine, but configuration are not trivial...

    I think lot of others IDE can be used, the best is the one you know.

    There must be a method to create a KoboRoot.tgz for LK8000, but I cannot find it published anywhere.
    I don't want to duplicate work. Any suggestions?

    I have made nothing for that.

    for run kobo verions, you need to upload all file using ftp or mass-storage connection inside "/mnt/onboard/LK8000" and run it using telnet remote shell.

    Edit : you need to kill allready running app before run LK8000 (KoboMenu or Nickell)

    Thanks Bruno,
    I had seen that info somewhere before, but couldn't find it again.
    The same for how to join the XChat channel, which is likely the place for beginners to to ask the stupid questions.

    cloudsun9 - Have you tried starting the Nimbus GUI with "startx"? A menu pops up in a terminal window on the Desktop and prompts you. You can enter a command from the menu and it will automatically launch XChat and join the proper IRC channel.

    If you want to test changes made by Bruno in first hand, you can do this (I run ./Install script all the times, because it might be changes with Language or/and Menu file, and if you don't update it might crash LK8000):
    - Open Terminal
    (only once, you don't need to repeat this on next time)
    - type: sudo git clone -b _road_to_linux https://github.com/brunotl/LK8000.git bruno

    (to compile and run it)
    - cd bruno
    - git fetch
    - make clean
    - make TARGET=LINUX
    - mv -f LK8000-LINUX ../LK8000/
    - cd /Scripts (case sensitive)
    - ./Install
    - cd ..
    - cd ../LK8000
    - ./LK8000-LINUX

    Attempting to test on KOBO-Mini I get:

    [root@(none) LK8000]# killall nickel
    [root@(none) LK8000]# ./LK8000-KOBO
    ./LK8000-KOBO: error while loading shared libraries: libzzip-0.so.13: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

    Any ideas?
    LK8000-LINUX loads up fine in Nimbus, but I would like to see it on the actual device if possible.

    Either we link statically, or you install that zzip library on the kobo too..

    Bruno If you mean the directory LK8000-KOBO is in I copied libzzip-0.so.13.0.62 there, it didn't work.

    I also tried a few other places like /Bin/KOBO/Library just in case

    you have error : "libzzip-0.so.13: cannot open shared object file"

    so, you need "libzzip-0.so.13" not "libzzip-0.so.13.0.62"

    2 option :
    - rename file
    - make link

    Different:

    [root@(none) LK8000]# killall nickel
    [root@(none) LK8000]# ./LK8000-KOBO
    Segmentation fault
    [root@(none) LK8000]#

    I'll have to try and find the correct file on rpm find or somewhere like it.
