HOWTO build zimlib for Symbian
Setup environment (Windows)
5.6.1 or later, tested with 126.96.36.1997
Used: S60 3rd Edition SDK, FP1
- newer should work, older versions won´t work for TODO application, while zimlb may work .
Also install arm tool chain, installer will ask you to do so
Used version 2.3
QT is not required for the zimib, but used in the TODO application
Used QT libraries 4.6.2 for Symbian (LGPL)
(Open C/C++ plugin or included in qt?)
Used tortoise svn
First open Nokia/Carbide.c++ to create workpace
Following description assumes that source is installed to subfolders in this workspace.
See also RELEASES
Use svn to get zimlib source.
This howto assumes that you have zimlib directly in the carbide workspace. (And not for example zim/zimlib).
If you are using tortoisesve, right click on workspace folder in windows explorer, select 'SVN Checkout...' and put the following into URL of repository:
Checkout directory should be automatically set to: c:SymbianCarbideworkspacezimlib
Note that zimreader and zimwriter are currently not supported on symbian. (And probably support does not make to much sense anyway).
Main porting effort is that symbian does not support autoconf
Install on phone
Tested on N82. Should work on all S60 3rd edition FP1 (e.g. N95), and later. 5th edition (5800, N97) may work as well, but not tested.
Install qt.sis from qt installation directory or TODO
Note: Project also build a sis with integrated qt installer (TODO filename), using Nokia smart intaller, but installation did not work for me due to signing issue.
