Qt Extended 4.4.3
Qt Extended 4.4.3
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 it and called it Qt Extended Improved:
Installing Qt Extended 4.4.3 snapshot on the FreeRunner
Download the kernel and rootfs
Note: the download links have been removed pending the availability of binaries build on the official 4.4.3 source released on 5 March 2009
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 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/qt-extended-4.4.3 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/qt-extended-4.4.3" >> 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/
