Edit: As I expected, I found the solution right after posting. Run NBHCreator.gambas from /usr/bin


I'm fairly new to Ubuntu and I've never use Wine before so can't work out how to get this running

The package installed, along with it's dependencies. Now what? How do I run it?

Sorry if this is basic stuff...

richard.

Working ok here. Still need to flash it onto my Kaiser - will report back if I find any problems.

Thank - this is a handy little tool

Edit: Hmm, output file only 4.8K so something is not right. Probably down to me so I'll keep playing.

The install deb should have created a 'start menu' item under /Applications/Other/NBHCreator

that is confirmed under the default Ubuntu window manager 'Gnome'

however I have not tested it in KDE or any other non-gnome window manager.

what window manager are you using?
I have a "Donate" button...for those of you that feel compelled to do so.
However, I don't feel I deserve it. Nor will I guarantee any results in return from any such donations.
Although I do appreciate the gesture, a simple thanks will suffice.

the resulting nbh must be 3M
DON'T FLASH IF IT ISN'T 3M.

make sure the zImage file is named 'zImage' and not somthing like 'zImage-12-06-10'

I am fixing the next version to allow different names for zImage.

No - I won't be flashing it! The file name is definitely just 'zImage'. Oh well I'll wait for the next version and try again.

I haven't built in a error log into the program but could you run
the NBHCreator.gambas in a terminal and post the output.

what device are you building for and what are your settings?

After restarting Ubuntu your program it is all working as expected. Sorry about that - I should have thought to try that first

yeah, had to throw it into a virtual machine. Nice tool, though.

If someone describes the process in great detail (including the binary formats and all that), I can make a slightly more portable version, if you'd like.
AT&T Tilt: android. I change this about every 5 minutes.

HTC FUZE (RAPH110): some energyrom, 1.14.25.05, some linuxes. wish: that the keys like the wifi key would work. Oh yeah, and for a new screen (bad scratches, but I'll live)

My accomplishments: Original atttilt keyboard code for kaiser/linux, original battery driver for kaiser/linux, hopefully more to come.

I will be releasing a more cross-platform version after I work out all the bugs.

Keeping it ubuntu for now keeps the distribution of a crappy program to a minimal.

on that note... V0.2 will be out very shortly.
this will address
-input filename variations ie.. 'zImage-12-06-10'
-output filename specific to correct device ie.. 'VOGUIMG,POLAIMG and KAISIMG'
-error checking
-misc fixes
