The current Isis source code release is missing critical build dependencies, and as such cannot be built by us into something useable at this point in time. We don't have a timeline for when such dependencies will be released, so we can't give a timeline based on that.

Name it as you want, but there was a lot of work already done here, so my donation is in the right hands.

Have you got an easy way of listing the missing build-deps? I'm curious as to whether we're talking about patched versions of things that you'd find in a conventional Linux system or custom Palm/HP libraries on which their modified QtWebkit depends?

Thanks for the tweet.
It seems from the tweet, they can build in ubuntu now even if code not already cleared for webOS. So I assume Isis could run in ubuntu in a card? Hope so.

edit: tweet says desktop ubuntu.

I can't even get it to build on Ubuntu 12.04, so I think the code is a bit broken atm.

I have discussed this with Donald and other members of the team, and we fell that the best thing for us to do right now is to offer refunds for anyone who has donated in this thread so far and to ask the moderators to close the thread.

We have not given up, but no longer see a clear path forward in the short term, so our honesty mandates that we offer refunds for any donations given so far. I have sent a personal PM to every person in this thread who has donated, offering a refund.

Anyone who wishes to receive a refund for a donation in this thread, please PM me with your paypal address and transaction id and I will arrange for your donation to be refunded immediately.

Thanks, and sorry for the disappointment in the short term.

Ive build it in 11.10 but as Rod pointed out, its missing critical components to make it worth while

I have found the problem. Apperantly, something has changed on 12.04 with the discovery of the 32-bit libs so that's why it's quite hard to build. I'm gonna install 32-bit 12.04 on a seperate PC, maybe it builds better on pure 32-bit.

I want to see WebOS thrive one day and the Isis browser was just one way of doing this. I am sure there are other ways the money can help webOS thrive. I know you will use it wisely.
