Build AbiWord for Maemo


Official Instructions
?
the official instructions are located in the Maemo Garage at https://garage.maemo.org/svn/abiword/abiword-ite/trunk/README.TXT

Ryan's Personal Instructions
this is where I test new procedures, etc, that aren't quite ready to be "official". If you want to partipate, join the Maemo Garage project.
Necessary Dependencies
?
Keep in mind that for each of these, you must build/install them in every target separately! (Bora and Chinook, x86 and armel!)

Dependencies from source: - easiest way is to apt-get source outside of Scratchbox, I used Ubuntu Gutsy in the SDK VMware image: (build with dpkg-buildpackage -rfakeroot and install all pieces in scratchbox using fakeroot dpkg -i whatever.deb unless otherwise noted)
libfribidi0 (-dev)
gsfonts - this one is cross-arch
libwmf - must edit debian/rules and comment out the dh_gtkmodules command (two lines) using a pound/hash sign.
libwv (-dev) - need 1.2 or higher
libenchant - must edit debian/rules and add --disable-pspell --disable-myspell to the config line then do a dpkg-buildpackage -rfakeroot -d
Dependencies from maemo: Install using fakeroot apt-get install whatever
libgsf-1-114
libgsf-1-dev
(Used to need this - not necessary anymore? libreadline4 (-dev))

1.
Checkout AbiWord from SVN - svn co http://svn.abisource.com/abiword/branches/ABI-2-6-0-STABLE/ abiword
2.
Checkout AbiWord ITE Packaging - svn co https://garage.maemo.org/svn/abiword/abiword-ite/trunk/ abiword-ite
3.
From within Scratchbox, in the abiword directory,
1.
./autogen.sh (if using SVN)
2.
ln -s ../abiword-ite/debian debian
3.
dpkg-buildpackage -rfakeroot
4.
Enjoy? We'll see if this works right...
