Note: Qt Extended 4.4.3 is the last version of Qt Extended. Trolltech cancelled the project on 3 March 2009 (Qt Software discontinues Qt Extended).

The community created a fork of Qt Extended called Qt Extended Improved.

Installing Qt Extended 4.4.3 on the FreeRunner

Download the kernel and rootfs

Next download the kernel and rootfs to your workstation. Here's a link to the rootfs created by HouYu Li and the kernel image. Boot your FreeRunner in dfu mode (NAND, Power+AUX) and use the dfu commands:

desktop# dfu-util -d 0x1d50:0x5119 -a kernel -R -D  testing-om-gta02-20090120.uImage.bin

    ... stuff ...

desktop# dfu-util -d 0x1d50:0x5119 -a rootfs -R -D  qt-extended-4.4.3-rootfs.jffs2

    ... more stuff ...

This kernel/rootfs fixes the WSOD problem and includes the echo patch but doesn't seem to support ogg or mp3 playback.

Building the Qt Extended 4.4.3 SDK

First make the build directory, download the source, and set the environment variables. In this example, I write the environment variables to a file then I source the file.

mkdir -p /opt/QtExtended/build/
cd /opt/QtExtended
wget http://qtextended.org/downloads/release/qt-extended-opensource-src-4.4.3.tar.gz
tar -xzvf qt-extended-opensource-src-4.4.3.tar.gz
echo "export QTOPIA_DEPOT_PATH=/opt/QtExtended/qt-extended-4.4.3" >> setpaths-4.4.3 
echo "export QPEDIR=/opt/QtExtended/build/" >> setpaths-4.4.3
. setpaths-4.4.3

Install the toolchain:

cd /opt
wget http://qtextended.org/downloads/toolchains/arm920t-eabi.tgz
tar xzvf arm920t-eabi.tgz /

Change to the source directory, download and apply three patches.

cd $QTOPIA_DEPOT_PATH
wget http://moko.mwester.net/download/pkg-config-template.patch
wget http://www.csamuel.org/wp-content/uploads/2009/01/0001-added-echo-suppression-fixes-for-the-openmoko-neo-ph.patch
wget http://radagast.bglug.ca/openmoko/qt-extended-4.4.3-libmad.tar.gz
tar xzf qt-extended-4.4.3-libmad.tar.gz
patch -p1 < qt-extended-4.4.3-libmad.patch
patch -p1 < pkg-config-template.patch
patch -p1 < 0001-added-echo-suppression-fixes-for-the-openmoko-neo-ph.patch

Do the linux three-step: configure, make, make install. But there are a couple new twists. First, there is a bug in the source which requires us to create a symlink sdk in the sdk directory (basically, someone made a typo and incorrectly entered sdk twice in an include path).

cd $QPEDIR
$QTOPIA_DEPOT_PATH/configure -device neo -D _FORTIFY_SOURCE=0
make
cd sdk
ln -s . sdk
cd ..
make install
bin/qbuild sdk

Fix the paths:

mkdir -p /opt/Qtopia/SDK/4.4.3
ln -s /opt/QtExtended/build/scripts/sdk/scripts/ /opt/Qtopia/SDK/scripts
mv /opt/Qtopia/SDK/scripts/devel- /opt/Qtopia/SDK/scripts/devel-neo.sh
echo "Device: neo" > /opt/Qtopia/SDK/versioninfo
ln -s /opt/QtExtended/build /opt/Qtopia/SDK/4.4.3/neo
ln -s /opt/QtExtended/build/sdk/ /opt/QtExtended/build/sdk/sdk 
cp $QTOPIA_DEPOT_PATH/bin/mkPackages /opt/Qtopia/SDK/scripts/

If you want to have the sdk working: add the following code in front of /opt/Qtopia/SDK/scripts/functions

#!/bin/bash
version()
{
echo "4.4.3"
}
qt_version()
{
echo "4.5"
}
#!/bin/sh


open /opt/Qtopia/SDK/scripts/sdk change the following:to have sdk -i and -r working again

at line 253:  '= "1"' to '> "0"' 
at line 233: 'ENVFILE=`cat /opt/Qtopia/SDK/$QPEVER/$DEVICE/configs/current.pri | grep QTOPIA_PREFIX= | awk 'BEGIN{FS="="}{print $2}'`"/qpe.env"' 
	to 'ENVFILE="/opt/Trolltech/Qtopia/qpe.env"'
at line 259, 263 & 281: '/opt/Qtopia/qpe.env' to '/opt/Trolltech/Qtopia/qpe.env'

Installing Qt Extended 4.4.3 on the FreeRunner

Next download the kernel and rootfs to your workstation. Here's a link to the rootfs created by Tomas Riveros Schober. And here's the kernel image. Boot your FreeRunner in dfu mode and use the dfu commands:

desktop# dfu-util -d 0x1d50:0x5119 -a kernel -R -D  Neo_kernel_Backup_200902212230.bin

    ... stuff ...

desktop# dfu-util -d 0x1d50:0x5119 -a rootfs -R -D  Neo_rootfs_Backup_200902212230.jffs2

    ... more stuff ...

This kernel/rootfs fixes the WSOD problem but battery life is still limited.
