Pyroute is one of the applications that runs on the Openmoko Phones. For a list of all applications, visit Applications

Installing

Cribbed from the mailing list, with some modifications that I had to make for it to work on my neo1973.

This is reconstructed from what I remember & my notes of what worked for me. Someone who tries this & sees modifications needed, please update!

On the neo: 'ipkg install python-pycairo python-pygtk python-netclient python-xml python-html python-netserver python-crypt python-threading'

I downloaded the packages from http://buildhost.automated.it/OM2007.2/packages/armv4t/. The actual commands I issued were for the .ipk files I downloaded.

Download pyroute as per http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/index.php/Pyroute#Download_and_installing I actually used svn to get it on my main box, then used 'tar czf pyroute.tgz pyroute', 'scp pyroute.tgz 192.168.0.202:', and finally 'tar xzf pyroute.tgz' on the neo.

I had to hand edit /usr/lib/python2.5/urllib2.py and change 'import hashlib' to '#import hashlib'. Some day we should figure out where to get _md5 and eliminate this step.

Then run 'python gui.py' in the directory you expanded pyroute into.


If it crashes with the following output:

Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "./gui.py", line 40, in <module>
    import gtk
  File "/usr/lib/python2.5/site-packages/gtk-2.0/gtk/__init__.py", line 82, in <module>
    init()
NameError: name 'init' is not defined

edit the file /usr/lib/python2.5/site-packages/gtk-2.0/gtk/__init__.py and change the call to init() on line 82 to _init().
