    "sudo apt-get install git" in Ubuntu 9.10 in a Virtual Machine gives med the message:
    "Package git is not available, but is referred to by another package. This may mean that the package is missing, has been obsoleted, or is only available from another source."


    Sorry for the noob question. Found out how.

    OK, sorry for my poor Linux skills, but here is another question. The command "git clone git://git.webos-internals.org/tools/meta-doctor.git" doesn't work for me. I get a message saying "git.webos-internals.org[0: 140.211.169.177]: errno=Connection timed out".

    I guess that's why the meta-doctor directory referred to in step 6.8 of the wiki doesn't exist on my machine.

    Problem solved: I had to turn off firewall proxy.
    I now have my WebOS Doctor Build running under Vista, waiting for it to recognize my Pre connected with the USB cable...

    I suspect your firewall is not passing the git protocol. Contact your network administrator.

    Yes, either modify the Makefile manually before running it, or wait for someone to create an end-user tool to customise it.

    I made a change to the WebOS MetaDoctor Instruction Page reflecting difficulty I ran into trying to install the Palm SDK on the 64-bit version of Ubuntu 9.10. There's a packaging error and the instructions on developer.palm.com to use --force-architecture simply won't work. After reading this thread on the Palm Developer forums, and sifting through the man pages for dpkg-deb, I more or less figured out what to do:

    right-click the link to the https://cdn.downloads.palm.com/sdkdo...pho33_i386.deb file, save as to my downloads folder.
    Open a terminal
    cd Downloads
    sudo dpkg-deb -x palm-sdk_1.2.0-svn202408-sdk77-pho33_i386.deb /
    System, Home directory, Downloads, browse into palm-sdk_1.2.0-svn202408-sdk77-pho33_i386.deb, open the postinst file, and manually complete the tasks that it otherwise should have done on its own. This requires editing /etc/hosts and adding a few lines, as well as using sudo to run rm -rf on some files. You might need to know at least a little about linux and the command line to complete this part.

    It already does. It's not the default yet, cause the 1.3.1 doctor is not public as far as I know. Just change VERSION in the Makefile.

    So I'm running Ubuntu using Virtualbox. I'm using 64 bit Vista. I have been able to follow the directions found in the meta doctor wiki. I have been able to bring up the webosdoctor, but the only problem I'm facing is how to get Ubuntu, running on Virtualbox, to recognize my Pre.

    If someone could point me in the right direction that would be great.
  12. #112  
    You don 't. It's been said earlier - you build the image in Linux but install from Windows or Mac OS because there are no Pre device drivers for Linux in the image yet.

    Ok so I tried to follow the link posted on the meta doctor wiki on how to share folders in Virtualbox. I have followed each step, but when trying to mount I keep getting an error after following this command:

    Then open a new Terminal window (Applications -> Accessories -> Terminal) and execute the following command:

    sudo mount -t vboxsf myshared Desktop/SharedItems


    After typing this in Terminal I get an error regarding vboxsf.

    Could anyone give me the proper command to type into Terminal where I can share a folder?

    NOTE: I named my folders the same as the example.

    Ok I got it. I didn't install the vbox guest additions. Then I decided to just load the webosdoctor in the build folder onto a flash drive and transfer it to windows that way.

    Anyway everything worked great!

    The Meta-Doctor now supports the Pixi, and has selectable options at the top of the Makefile (so you can use it just for increasing /var space to 2GB without bypassing activation).

    I'm having this error trying to patch the Pixi webOS Doctor.
    I tried using *sudo* and didn't work. I re-installed the SDK, Novacom and still getting this Error 1

    Sorry about that, I forgot to commit the patches directory to git. Please try again now.

    One question.
    I copied the jar file from the build folder. I run it and flashed the Palm Pixi. How can I avoid the activation since the Palm Pixi doesn't have a WiFi? I couldn't use it
    Thanks in advance.
