REQUEST midori.tcz on piCore9 Armv6
« on: January 17, 2018, 05:21:33 AM »
I'm trying to build a simple infocentre type device that just auto boots and pulls a webpage to show on a monitor/screen. I've got a RasPi Zero with added WiFi dongle.

Problem I'm having is the browser. Looks like Midori is the obvious easy option and existed in the piCore 7 repos but not the latest.

I wouldn't mind creating the extension myself if someone would point me in the right direction

you could try the midori extension from the piCore-7.x armv6 repo in piCore-9.x to see if it would work - if you start it from a terminal window you should get an error message if it is missing something.

Otherwise you could compile the latest version of midori (0.5.11, I believe) from source.

Something like:
Code: [Select]
$ cd midori-0.5.11
$ mkdir build
$ cd build

$ cmake -LAH -DCMAKE_C_FLAGS="-march=armv6zk -mtune=arm1176jzf-s -mfpu=vfp -Os -pipe" -DCMAKE_CXX_FLAGS="-march=armv6zk -mtune=arm1176jzf-s -mfpu=vfp -Os -pipe" -DCMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX=/usr/local -DCMAKE_BUILD_TYPE=Release -DCMAKE_VERBOSE_MAKEFILE=TRUE ../

$ make
$ make install

Thank you Juanito!!

I'm kind of in the same boat - I don't use Midori for hard-core web-surfing, but for local documentation / html coding and it is modern and stable enough to program devices that run their own web servers like my routers, switches, ethernet<>wifi adapters and so forth.

As much as I love Dillo, it just doesn't cut it for that purpose.  And Fifth isn't stable enough yet.  Locked myself out of a few devices using either one to do things like that. :)

I'll try to load up compiletc on a pi-zero and give that line a try myself and let you know how it works!

Heh, I'm not worthy.... :)

One of those days - not all the libraries are available.  Or they have slightly different names than the build script which threw me off.  Cross compiling on another box complains about cmake missing and repo to get it not available for some reason.

Tried old tcz which wanted to work, but I forgot to get the missing lib looking for libxss.so.1.

Maybe someday - taking a break on the whole idea for now, but good to restart the brain after seeing those c and c++ compiler flags...starting to come back.... :)
