[oe] [RFC] Making libmimedir-0.4.2 default in OE

Hello openembedded-devel,

  Currently, libmimedir-0.3.1 is marked DEFAULT_PREFERENCE = "1". That
version of the lib has at least 2 serious bugs:

1. Arbitrary cutting off of NOTE field during parsing.
2. Parsing only one value from CATEGORIES field.

  This essentially makes it not suitable for VCARD (at least) parsing
at all. Both issues were fixed in 0.4.2 (tested).

  So, I'd like to propose to remove mentioned DEFAULT_PREFERENCE and
make other steps as needed to make 0.4.2 the default version.

  Other possible changes regarding this lib:

1. Drop 0.3.1 as too buggy. (Caveat: 0.3.1 is the last version from
original author, 0.4 serious are being maintained by GPE project).

2. There appears to be (at least) two libmimedir's, another one is
http://sourceforge.net/projects/libmimedir/ (at 0.5, versions up to
0.4 were part of synce project). Debian names package for the lib in
question "libmimedir-gnome", we may want to disambiguate too.
http://packages.qa.debian.org/libm/libmimedir-gnome.html

Well if you have that running the extra things you need are X, matchbox,
glib and GTK+. The rest of GPE basically builds on these components. For
certain applications you might need to resolve more dependencies like
dbus, libmimedir, ..

There is a dependency map at
http://dominion.kabel.utwente.nl/koen/pda/files/GPE-dependencymap.pdf

The recommended way to build everything is to use OE (openembedded). For
more info check www.openembedded.org. OE already supports the
at91sam9263ek. I do not know how similar this board is but it might make
it easy to build for yours starting from that.

Well contributions are more than welcome!

Also take note that the GPE project has moved and is to be found on
gpe.linuxtogo.org. Due to issues with the hosting there is still a GPE
page on handhelds.org, so we apologize for the confusion.

Cheers,

the libgpewidget package adds a hook to save ~/.gpe.

PhoneLink and GPE

Hello Everyone,
	Can anyone give me a few pointers regarding the Phonelink program
<https://garage.maemo.org/projects/phonelink/>? It looks like exactly
what I want! Does this work with any phone model with bluetooth or must
I get a Nokia? I'm up for a new handset and this will determine which
one. I've narrowed it down to either the Nokia 6315i or the Motorola
MOTOSLVR L7c from the handsets available from my provider. If there's
something else I should consider please let me know, these are the ones
I get for a reduced price.

Regards,

New install files for N800

Hi,

I created updated install files for the GPE bits in Graham's experimental
repository. You can find them here:
http://linuxtogo.org/~florian/maemo/index.html

The applications seem to work, but I am aware of two issues:
- You need to install the libmimedir-gnome1 package manually, it is not pulled
in automatically.
- It is necessary to remove all GPE packages from the old repositories before
installing the new bits.

Enjoy

Greetings

Florian

GPE from Grahams Repo on the 800

Hi Graham,
	I just finished installing gpe-calendar, gpe-contacts, gpe-todo,
gpesyncd, bora version from your repository onto an 800. Everything went
very smoothly, many thanks. The libmimedir-gnome package did not
automatically install, but I was able to select it from the list of
installable packages in the Application Manager. The gpe-icons does not
seem to be available but I'm none the worse for it?? Calender started
and immediately crashed once, subsequent starts were good, even after a
reboot. Contacts and Todo started and ran fine. Thanks to your
instructions I copied over the .gpe (and .bookmarks) directory so I have
my data. I have done nothing yet with gpesyncd. This unit will go out
Monday with instructions to report it's behavior.
	Thanks again for your help, as well as everyone else's on the GPE team!

Best Regards,

gpe-timesheet for maemo added to my repository

At the suggestion of Peter Bart, I have added gpe-timesheet to my Maemo 
repository (see http://www.cobb.uk.net/770/index.html).  I have not tested it 
(except to install and run it) -- please report any bugs in the GPE bugzilla.

It should also appear in the daily build repository after tonight.

If there are other applications in SVN which can be built for maemo let me 
know and I will add them as well.
