Orbiter on Zaurus?

(1/4) > >>

Hi all,
First time posting. Just a little background. I am going to be building a house in the next couple of months and was looking to PlutoHome as a great home automation option. One question I do have is, can the Orbiter be run on a Zaurus. I have a Zaurus C3100 and am going to be in Japan again this month and I was thinking that if I can get it to compile for ARM, I would get a couple of Zaurus C1000's to use as Orbiters in the new house. Here is the Issue.

I have tried cross-compiling (using Damn Small Linux and the gcc-2.95 tool chain) as well as tried compiling it in Debian PocketWorkstation on the zaurus itself and seem to be running into problems. I am sure they are dependency related but I can't figure it out and was hoping that I could get some help.

Here is what I have tried:

Tried to compile SerializeClass on DSL using the command: make host=arm-linux
This is what I got:

--- Code: newbielink:javascript:void(0); [nonactive] ---bash-2.05b# make host=arm-linux

--- End code ---

I tried this one first because it seemed to have the fewest dependencies. I also tried PlutoUtils but ended up with this:

--- End code ---

I have installed libhttpfetcher-dev and there is a http_fetcher.h file in /usr/includes/ so I am not sure what the problem is.

Any and all help on this is appreciated. I would love to be able to pick up a couple of zaurii when I am in Japan to use as Orbiters ;)

I just re-read the post and there is some more information that I should include. The Zaurus runs on the 2.4.20 Embedix kernel using gcc-2.95. I realize it is a little old but that is what it runs on.

Also, is there a specific order I need to compile this stuff in? I have everything required for PlutoUtils (I think) except for cdrecorder. I guess I can always apt-get that and try again.

Let me know if there is any other information I can give you to help me figure this out.


Hi Rob,

You will need to compile SerializeClass, PlutoUtils and DCE first and then Orbiter. Indeed, gcc-2.95 is a little to old, we are using 3.3.5 right now.

Anyway, instead of that "str.clear();" you can try doing a str = "";
We will try to compile orbiter for Zaurus too, but I don't think this will be too soon.

For that http_fetcher.h, you can comment out the functions which uses it. Orbiter doesn't really need them.

Best regards,
Chris M.

Thanks for the help on that. I got SerializeClass (the str ="" worked) and DCE compiled (I had to download pluto_main from svn). Now I just need some help with PlutoUtils. I got past the http_fetcher problem but now I have a problem with locale in StringUtils.cpp. I'll post the stack trace here. It is complaining that it cannot find the path to locale. It is in /usr/bin which is in the PATH variable. I tried adding -I/usr/bin to the MakeFile but then it complained about an "unterminated character constant". When I type locale in a terminal window they all say en_US.  Help?


Here is the error for PlutoUtils make

--- End code ---

Here is the result of locale+

--- Code: newbielink:javascript:void(0); [nonactive] ---root@zaurus:~/PlutoHome/PlutoUtils# locale

--- End code ---

Hi Rob,

I guess you can comment that include too (#include <locale>) and eventually comment any function that might use it or provide a dummy implementation or those functions.
