Topic: Full screen web browser

I'm looking to boot the Dash into a full screen web browser.

I've found couple topics for a wv executable - but the debugchumby and associated executables are compiled for the ARM-based chumbies. 

http://forum.chumby.com/viewtopic.php?id=5413
So at this point I'm looking for pointers:

1) cross-compiler for the Dash
2) the source code used for the wv browser (I'd prefer the chrome-less variant) and the accompanying debugchumby and switch_output tools.

Or (3) just a helpful soul who already has a cross-compiler and the source that can brew me up some MIPS-based binaries.

Thanks for any info that can be provided to get me spun off in a direction.

Re: Full screen web browser

debugchumby is a shell script.

Cleaning up any loose bits and bytes.

The toolchain Sony used is "Sorcery G++Lite 4.3-51".  You can find it here: https://sourcery.mentor.com/GNUToolchain/release607?

You'll probably also need the dev files for all of the libs you'd need.  I don't know if Sony still hosts the open source anywhere for the HID-C10 - I'm not seeing it with a quick Google search.

You'll need to track down the appropriate Qt source somewhere since the link on the wiki to Nokia is obsolete.

Re: Full screen web browser

I took a copy of the Sony GPL stuff a year or so back.  I _think_ this is for the C10...

https://sweh.spuddy.org/Sony-Dash-GPL/

It includes qt-everywhere-opensource-src-4.7.1.tgz

Re: Full screen web browser

I'm traveling at the moment so I can't check myself, but you might want to check to see if there's already a browser installed on the dash.  The fact that that particular qt package is present in the source distribution is a good sign.

Re: Full screen web browser

thanks guys - that'll get me off to a good start.

Yes, I've since discovered a full screen browser after re-installing the original Sony Dash theme.

If it is able to stay running once I initiate it, my work here may be already done.

Again, thank you for the helpful replies!

Re: Full screen web browser

I have all of the source code libraries downloaded right before Sony shutdown their website for the Dash. I can upload them if you like. I even have chumbrowser-1.0.15-mips-src.tgz, qt-everywhere-opensource-src-4.7.1.tgz, mips-4.3-51-mips-linux-gnu.src.tar.bz2, etc.. About 38 libraries total.
