Quassel IRC Core DroboApp Request

http://quassel-irc.org/

An important distinction is the Client, Core, and Monolithic builds. Client and monolithic builds require a GUI for the user to connect to the core session. Where the core runs as a deamon IRC client as a server for clients to connect to. This is a request for only the core.

I would like to get the Quassel IRC Core running on my DroboFS.

It doesn’t look like it will be very difficult since it only requires qt.

Building Quassel on Ubuntu

I have actually followed this guide for setting up a cross-compiling environment in VirtualBox. I know I have to download the source and build from there with configure flags for the next step, but I’m a little at a loss from lack of experience with building source code.

Any help building (preferred) or just providing the arm binary would be appreciated.

Actually, this might be a huge problem. I remember wanting to cross-compile something that required some QT libraries and, my goodness, QT has a horrendous dependency graph.

The required libraries to compiles the few qt functions that I needed became a growing snowball of more and more libraries and soon enough I was looking at cross-compiling almost all of X11.

I’m pretty sure that the FS does not have any QT libraries, so your first step would be to get each of those cross-compiled (qt4-dev-tools libqt4-dev libqt4-sql-sqlite).

Good luck!

What if I switched QT out with QT-embedded?

Building QT-embedded

Seems like building the embedded QT instead of the normal Linux ones would be the way to go.

EDIT:

Is this why you were compiling X11?

Here is Quassel built for ARMEL. I don’t think QT is statically linked though.
