My phone knows perl

[ #39393 ]

It's cool to run perl on my phone. I tried compiling bleadperl on it just now but it didn't generate a Makefile. I guess I'm going to learn how the configuration system works now. The last few weeks have been endless yak shaving. I tracked down some debuild problem through diff to FSF's diffutils and all their various versions, learned how to override parts of Makefiles for ExtUtils::MakeMaker, installed and set up Gnus, have been getting into the internals of Git in a fairly serious way.

Blech. It seems it's so difficult to get to /actual/ work.

  • You didn't say which phone you are actually using, although from the "WebOS" name I'm thinking maybe Palm Pre?

    • Yes, it's a Palm Pre. To be fair, installing optware quilt on the phone also installs optware's build of perl-5.10.0. I'm just trying to build perl on the phone, for the phone.

      My perl-5.11.0/hints/palmpre.sh is up to http://pastie.org/569837 [pastie.org] but there's still more failures. So far, it seems all the failures come from trying to build it in /media/internals a VFAT partition for installation to /opt, an ext3 partition.

      This table of partitions shows that the only large space is where the mp3s and other stuff go
