As a hobbyst theologist myself, how about an app, or an extension for the actual ones, for more than the Bible? Like Plato, Aristotles St Augustine and St. Thomas Aquinas works, with cross-referencing?

THAT's something to die for

I may not be a religious guy, but I really want to see this through.

Because it's important.
Hogwash, we are mostly in the exact same boat. I am a professional Software engineer by day -- I program in a variety of languages both desktop and web based. But I am a Maemo novice by night. ;-) I'm learning lots of stuff as I go.

I'm finding my feet also in this new world -- here is what I found for building packages;

Several of the proprietries include support for Peakes commentary and their own versions of notes. Including support for other works (the historic ones are probably available freely anyway) so you could cross notate would be genius.

It's so hard to extrapolate from a mouse-interfaced UI on my desktop to a handheld that i may not actually try anything until i have an N900 in my hot little hand so that i can test things as i go.
Sword (as well as the python bindings) are already in diablo extra repository. It is not the latest version though.

Theoretically, you shoudl be able to recompile them by just apt-get source sword (and the needed dependencies) with the extra repository enabled, then dpkg-buildpackage them in the new sdk.

Well, I have some good news (pun not intended) and some bad news. ;-)

The good news:


I've got rapier running under the final Fremantle SDK, everything built and compiled.

I'm currently using pretty much the latest version of everything
- ICU 4.2.1
- Sword 1.60
- CLucene 0.93
- Rapier 1.04

I have also figured out how to package at least CLucene and have requested privileges to upload to the "extras" a couple days ago.

The Bad news:
- Their is a "crashing" bug in one of the tools that does part of the building under the Armel target. It is stopping me from being able to compile this under Armel instruction set (what the n900 device runs) -- I have a post in both the dev mailing list and dev forum here to try and get this resolved. Apparently it is a known issue -- and other devs have ran into it.

Until this bug is fixed; I cannot "offiically" port any of the Bible programs using the sword engine to the fremantle device. ;-( Fortunately this is a tool that is being used by other projects so their should be some pressure to get it fixed soon as more developers run into it. (and their might be a couple ways to work around it)

I might be able to work around it one other way but it would then be a single installable package from my server rather than from extras since, until this tool is fixed the build-bots would also crash while attempting to build it. Where I would have pre-built all the binaries and packaged

Well done Nathan! I daresay that a solution will be found to the ARMEL build crash - it's not the sort of problem that can possibly be ignored for long

Have you built the 'release' target of these projects, and if so, how much space do they occupy?

The one thing that I miss from Sword is the fact that Rapier can't do parallel translations or a translation and commentaries, where the secondary sources are slaved to the translation.

I know it would be difficult with the screen size, but it would be nice..
