Minimo and OLPC
A few weeks ago [http://franciscoalecrim.blogspot.com/2007/05/minimo-debian-olpc.html
It can be improved, like:
- Removing unnecessary files
- Creating a Debian package for Minimo
HOWTO Minimo and OLPC
- Compile and test minimo in your desktop
- Copy it to OLPC disk
- Set the correct variables
- Run it
You'll need a Debian Filesystem as described in "HOWTO Debian OLPC"
We recommend you to compile it in your desktop(x86), cause it takes a good time.
You can download the source using CVS as described in Mozilla Page.
You can download a tarball that Tonikitoo released to me. He got it from Mozilla CVS.
After it, you can uncompress Minimo in your current folder.
tar -xvjf mozilla_20070601.tar.bz2
It's going to generate a folder named mozilla.
Compile and test
Inside mozilla folder, let's compile Minimo.
cp minimo/config/mozconfig/linux_x86 ./mozconfig make -s -f client.mk build_all make -s package -C minimo/base cd dist/minimo export LD_LIBRARY_PATH=. ./minimo
With the previews steps Minimo came up and GREAT SUCCESS!!!! It works!!!
Copy to OLPC rootfs
Now, let's copy minimo folder to OLPC rootfs.
cd .. sudo cp -r minimo /media/OLPCRoot/opt/.
Test inside OLPC
We configured fluxbox to open a X term with ALT+e.
echo "Mod1 e :ExecCommand xterm"
Start up fluxbox on Debian/OLPC.
Open a Xterm(ALT+e). Export the correct variables and test minimo.
cd /opt/minimo export LD_LIBRARY_PATH=. ./minimo
