        Qpegps on OpenZaurus (my sl-5500)

        You Must install wget*.ipk package from the feed.
        The wget installed by default (busybox) lack parameters. (See console downmap results)

      qpegps looks great; I have it running with Leadtek 9534 on Zaurus C750.  Problem downloading maps from mapblast:
      "Download ERROR.
      If you use proxy, Run Console "export http_proxy=http://myproxy:8080..."
      Tried, failed.  Am connected to network, Netfront browser works.  Suggestions?

      1. You must type your proxy addres inctead of "myproxy".
      2. You must start qpegps also from this console by printing "qpegps" .

      I hop you do it.

      But I dont't know how to help you. I never use mapblast.
      Expedia looks better. use downloading maps from expedia.

      I have the same problem on SL-6000.
      It's look like that qpegps require lot of free memory for downloading from expedia.
      I free some memory and it's start to work (remove some residentioal programs - uncheck "Fast load" from PIM's).
      Also I use downmap utility from console.

      I haven't any experience with SL6000 or OZ.
      I haven't access to such devices.
      So, only some general recommendations

      1. Qpegps uses "downmap" utility to download. Downmap use "wget" to download. So it can spend lot of memory.
      2. Try download to another directory. Default catalog may be read-only on some OS. Also you can change access rights to default catalog and maps.txt file in it.
      3. Please try to use downmap from console with the same parameters. Use donmap -h for help.
      4. If It will not help try to check is wget really work? Enter command in console utility:
        wget -v -d -nd -t 7 -O test.gif ",37.618223&Lang=WLD0409&Alti=150&Size=656,532&Offs=0.000000,0.000000"

        and then see to test.gif file

      Inform me about results. As many information as available.

      you need to grab "getmap" then it'll work fine on the 6000L (which is what I did to get it to work properly)

      how to install it ?

    • Nobody/Anonymous

      Looks like the problem is that by default the /home/QtPalmtop/qpegps directory, and all the files and directories in it, are only writeable by 'root'.  Not knowing how .ipk files are setup, it would seem there is a step missing to allow the 'zaurus' account write access.

      I have qpegps working well on my PMA400, thanks for your efforts, they are appreciated :D

      I have a couple of issues with the PMA and its screen size.

      The download maps form extends below the bottom of the viewable area, could this be condensed a little?

      Also the same issue when setting/deleting a destination, the longitude is not visible at all.

      Also when downloading maps of any scale from mulitimap for the UK, they are all not centred correctly.

      Keep up the good work.

      everything worked perfect on my zaurus 5500. just make sure you're using the old gpsd. (the binary is called "gpsd_from_qpegps_0_9_1_compiled_with_soft-float_support
      " and can be found in the download section of this page. chmod 777 that file and copy it to the /bin directory. there you go... i'm using downmap on a ubuntu-system and it goes flawless.. thnx

      Since there hasn't been much apparent movement on qpegps development I have been looking at integrating gpsd 2.3X with the code (also noted here:\).

      Has anybody else done this already and not reported it? and are many people that interested?

      It doesn't run on my iPAQ 3970/Familiar 0.8.4/Opie 1.2.1 :(

        It is defined on qnamespace.h, that is part of qt 2.3. Please test for that file

        Hi all,

        V works on my Archos PMA400.
        But V 0.9.3 terminates with code SIGSEGV.
        Searching the forum showed me that this bug was fixed with V 9.1.1 - but now it's back?
