Hi to all,
I am intending to start using ovahi on MAEMO platform (Nokia 770 & N800
Internet tablets, based on Debian Linux). And the initial problem is that I
am not too familiar with Linux / C environment :)
I am able to install maemo libraries needed for running mDNS SD from ARMEL
packages found elsewhere(avahi-daemon, libavahi-client3,
libavahi-common-data, libavahi-common3 and libavahi-core4).
However, I suppose I need the libavahi-client-dev also installed in my
developer environment (using scratchbox). I have tried poking it around
manually, copying the headers to /usr/include and the .pc file for
pkgdonfig to /usr/lib/pkgconfig... Is this enough? Or how do I do it the
"right" way, i.e. does Avahi package contain a handy way to install single
components from sources, since ARMEL packages are not available.
What do I need to do in order to make e.g. the client-browse, and
client-publish working? Meaning the basic examples at avahi homepages..
compiling them with "gcc client-browse-services.c `pkg-config avahi-client
--cflags --libs'" just says:
cannot find -lavahi-common
so obviously something needs more setupping :) My usr/lib has the following
I would dearly appreciate any help in this, since I think Avahi would do a
great job running on those lightweight devices also. Canola media player
at least uses it already on Maemo platform, and I Wish to do the same.
