TiltOS-App Installer - gcc2/gcc4 Download

Thumbnails:

Description:
I create this little app to install and uninstall Qt and other Apps, available over TiltOS.com, on my Haiku hybrid System.

Installation

- unzip package on your system (Haiku)
- drop files on the included links (select gcc2 or gcc4 = links in the folders)
- select the Qt-App Installer in the Application menu to start

Information

- QtInstaller is written in yab, you need libncurses.so to run it (included)
- Qt is running on Haiku gcc4 or hybrid Systems
- You need to install TiltOS for Haiku first, before you can use the Installer.
- libstdc++.so.6 is a link to libstdc++.so.6.0.10 in /boot/common/libs (TiltOS-App Installer make this by himself)

Last changes

17.04.2010
- I change the name of the app, because not all apps you can install are qt apps. So i rename the app into TiltOS-App Installer

18.03.2010
- Add Instruction how to install Gimp

14.03.2010
- Checking if TiltOS is already istalled
- creating link of libstdc++.so to libstdc++.so.6 it it does not exsists

Hi! Unfortunately, it doesn't work:

sh: bos-repos: command not found

It would be helpful to mention the dependency and how to get it in the description.

Args, i have seen that i have not download and install the Haiku with gcc4, i get the gcc2 and so the app is compiled on gcc2, i will install the gcc4 version and compile it on this system. the i update the App.

No need, I figured it out - one has to do:

box -s

Now I have:

/tmp/box-install.OfGZFv/post-install: line 14: /boot/common/share/fonts:: No such file or directory
useradd: group 'messagebus' does not exist
chown: invalid user: `root:messagebus'/tmp/box-install.OfGZFv/post-install: line 14: /boot/common/share/fonts:: No such file or directory
useradd: group 'messagebus' does not exist

I hoped the tool would automate all of installing qt and qt apps, but it seems that it only automates the qt apps part after one has manually configured qt.

here's some instructions ;)

tiltos.com/drupal/node/17

to get my environment working I had to manually install dbus and shared-mime-info. wget those two files, rename from box to tar, and then unzip to /boot. after that installing Qt app should go smooth.

I have upload a new version, compiled on gcc4 and with some little updates of the app. I don't have add a function for the index of available apps, this need to be download first. Finally i include this option and add some introduction for using the app.

Thanks!

The app asks for libstdc++.so.6 which I presume is supposed to replace the default c++ runtime. That is a crucial system file, isn't replacing it risky business?
 
 
0 # libstdc++.so.6Lelldorin 2010-02-08 15:59
I dont know i dont need a lib like this, have you run a gcc2 or gcc4 system? If you have a hybrid system look if you have a gcc2 or gcc4 hybrid. terminal gcc --help for info. i have compiled the app in gcc4. i can make a gcc2 tomorrow too.
 
 
0 # RE: libstdc++.so.6Adek336 2010-02-08 17:31
It's gcc4+2 hybrid. It may be one of the libs you have linked against that requires libstdc++.so.6.

One of Haiku's assets is supposed to be a consistent userspace, as opposed to a fragmented one resulting from having too many similar apps doing the same thing.

And in this spirit we should avoid having two standard c++ libraries, the system one and a libstdc++.so.6 one. If the system one lacks features, it should be fixed instead of introducing a second one.

I don't link any library, it is a yab application, the compiler of yab linked to libraries, i don't can see it. I only know that yab needs libncurses.so and today i see it need libstdc++.so.6 for gcc4. I have upload two new versions, one compiled on a gcc2 and on compiled on a gcc4/hybrid.
 
 
+2 # RE: Qt-App Installer - gcc2/gcc4karl 2010-02-11 07:20
you know what would be really cool, is if the Haiku devs could devise a method to solve this gcc2/4 dilemna. They started with GCC2 and touted BeOS compatibility (and now pretty much abandon it by adding an *optional BeOS compatibility package), so they should come up with something similar to what Apple did for their developers and release an easy to use development package that consists of both GCC2 and 4, and produces universal binaries. Binaries that run on both versions of Haiku they release. Users and even software authors get confused about what should run on which system and how it should be implemented. Anyone else feel this way?

Release one damn version of Haiku (i.e a hybrid) with all compatibility packages, libraries, compilers, etc. so everything just works, and everything is compatible. Make Haiku "free of any unnecessary complexities."

I'd rather have a complete package where everything works without headache even if it's a larger package to download.

In the end, I'll probably have to add fields on the software submission that will say 'legacy' (BeOS files), 'native GCC2', 'native GCC4', and 'native universal' (package contains both GCC2 and 4 binaries).

Actually, using libstdc++.so.6 isn't related to gcc versions - it's rather somewhere along the line of using sdl,x11,gstreamer etc instead of actually porting software to the Haiku API.

Your app would really benefit from a button which downloads and installs TiltOS, syncs box repos and later installs dbus, oxygen-icons etc :)

Also, (a problem with box) it produces a lot of error messages when installing the mentioned basic packages, about non existant users, groups, file. And there is no progress meter, neither there is one in QtInstaller. But as it takes a lot of time to install abiword, a progress bar would be very appreciated (I was pretty sure it hung).

Finally, after installing abiword it's not present in the "packages that can be uninstalled" list. It doesn't work, either- "No DISPLAY".

EDIT: I've got to click the button to populate the uninstall-list - I guess it would be better if the install-list and uninstall-list populated automatically. Also, the greater-than sign is a poor label for "Uninstall-list", I would rather see a more verbose sign.

Also, I would expect double clicking on an item to install it.
 
 
0 # RE: RE: Qt-App Installer - gcc2/gcc4Adek336 2010-02-21 05:11
Overall, the app has great potential as it facilitates access to a broad range of apps. Unfortunately, I can't get a lot of them to work atm. (for example xhost, xhaiku, abiword even with eval `dbus-launch --auto-syntax`)

On the contrary, supertux works fine!

Some of the apps available for install are already available as native ports - like ocaml and vim - I would rather encourage use of native ports, than providing a non-native qt versions in the list.

Also, it'd be great if pressing letters while in the list would move me to a package that starts with that letter (or even that starts with a bunch of letters I press), if it's easy to implement.

No Unix.cma for Haiku? (Despite the name, it is important to have even under Haiku)

The Qt-App Installer is only a GUI for the command line tool box of TiltOS, so i does not can add a progressbar into it, because i don't get any progress informations from box.

This is correct i have cleared the list because you need to press the check button to get the actual list.

I only display the list you get from the command line tool box into qt-app installer. If someone have fun to help the project, can do a list of native available tools and we can add it into the installer as information.

I see that it lists all packages: I think you should make a list of qt-apps to show rather than making a list of native-apps not to show (so in case a new app appears, it's excluded by default instead of included)

But then the qt port is the newest one and the native port on haiku is an old one, it will be better to use the newest one. I thing that the qt-app installer is not the porting police, it is a GUI for box not more. I can include informations about all needed files for apps, the user can download with this app and i can add a list of apps who are available as native port too. The same for TiltOS, i will contact the people of TiltOS and hope that we can work together, so the app-installer will be part of TiltOS in the future.

You are writing in miracles, i don't understand you.
I don't port and compiling anything, i create only a "GUI" for the box command installed by TiltOS for Haiku. I don't can say that all ported apps are running. The project is at work. If you have questions contact the Qt porting team.

Hi,

i use links to folders to install the files. Only drop the files they are in the name of the link (filename with a pointed line under it) onto this link to install. Then open the folder with the gcc version your system is (gcc2 or gcc4 build) and start the binary.

Also you need to install TilitOS for Haiku, because the TiltOS App Installer is a GUI to use TiltOs command line installer.

Yes, I tried the stand-alone installer on an older version of Haiku and it didn't work that well. As it was designed to be installed with Tilt OS, I thoguht that would be better. I installed the requirements as it says on the Tilt-OS site, but using your app instead of box, which I find to be very confusing (Thanks a lot for creating it). http://www.tiltos.com/drupal/node/17


How would I normally launch an app that has been installed? I searched for a koffice application file in /boot/common/bin and everywhere else, but didn't find it.

It should be in your path, from terminal just i.e:

$ eval `dbus-launch --auto-syntax`
$ kword

Should work.

If you look in the standalone, it installs menu items. Those are executable scripts to start each Koffice component.

The Tilt-OS App installer have nothing to do with TiltOS as is. It is only a installer (GUI) for apps you can get over the command line package installer from TiltOS. If the packege TiltOS have any problem to install or running on newer Haiku versions, the Tilt-OS App installer does not can repair this. Please contact the TiltOS Team.
