UQM for Symbian S60 3rd edition

First some general notes. These instructions might be somewhat incomplete or
unclear. If you encounter any problems or have suggestions how to improve this
document, please report them to our Bugzilla at
UQM's Symbian support is currently at experimental stage. Development is
being done on Nokia N73, which has too little memory for longer playing
sessions. Reports of successes and failures on other devices are very welcome.

Known problems:
- No netmelee.


- Platform SDK for S60 3rd ed.
  * Download from http://www.forum.nokia.com/

- Open C plugins (if SDK is other than FP2; in FP2 those are included already)
  * Download from http://www.forum.nokia.com/main/resources/tools_and_sdks/openc_cpp/

- Carbide.c++ (if building for emulator)
  * Download from http://www.forum.nokia.com/
  * Command line compiling must be enabled
- CSL ARM Toolchain or RVCT v2.2 (if building for hardware)
  * GCCE included with SDK

- MinGW and MSYS (for build scripts)
  * Download from http://www.mingw.org/

- Info-Zip (for building content package)
  * Download from http://www.info-zip.org/Zip.html

- SDL for S60 3rd ed.
  * Download from http://koti.mbnet.fi/mertama/sdl.html
  * You also need the sources from http://www.libsdl.org/
- Tremor
  * Check out from SVN repository at http://svn.xiph.org/trunk/Tremor/


1) Set up platform SDK, compilers, Open C plugins and MinGW + MSYS.
   * Be sure zip and other tools are listed in path so they can be accessed
     directly from command line.

2) Subst your Symbian SDK to a new drive along the following example:
      subst z: C:\Symbian\9.1\S60_3rd_MR_2
3) Put UQM sources and Tremor inside the substed drive, if not already there.

4) Install and build SDL, instructions are inside the package.

5) Build a partial port of libpng and SDL_image, which are included
   in UQM SVN repository at trunk/symbian/png:
      cd png\group
      bldmake bldfiles
      abld build
6) Build Tremor. First apply a patch found from UQM SVN repository
   at trunk/symbian/tremor:
      cd Tremor
      patch -p0 </path/to/tremor_symbian.patch
      bldmake bldfiles
      abld build

7) Open MSYS terminal. All following steps are done inside it.

8) Two environment variables control the building, BUILD_EPOCROOT and BUILD_HOST.
   Set BUILD_EPOCROOT to point to the substed drive:
      export BUILD_EPOCROOT=/z
   Set BUILD_HOST to WINSCW (emulator) or GCCE / ARMV5 (hardware), depending
   for which target you want to build:
      export BUILD_HOST=GCCE

9) Compile (you don't need to change any options from the interactive menu):
      ./build.sh uqm

10) Install. It builds the content zip and puts everything to proper
    place (WINSCW) or creates a self-signed SIS package (GCCE / ARMV5):
       ./build.sh uqm install
11) If you built for GCCE or ARMV5, you should now have uqm.sisx in the same
    directory from where you did the build. Remember to also install SDL SIS
    package and if device does not support FP2, Open C plugins before
    attempting to run UQM on actual device.
