Re: Yocto webbrowser ?

ya knygar <knygar@...>


but why "webkit-web-browser" and not some gecko build? Isn't
're-branding' of mobile firefox would not be easier than building a
powerful stand-alone mobile webkit browser? Isn't the Mozilla's work
more important than supporting webkit now, at all?

The gecko's memory consumption has been stretched for the mobiles,
adding the UX efforts, extensions, and that Firefox Mobile is almost
the only floss mobile browser, i can't understand why not to try with
it now.

Hi all,

I've been building the current-release of yocto (which succeeds)
[ sato-qemu-arm build]

1) At this time I would like to 'include' the web-browser
(webkit-web-browser)  into this build but I can not find any doc's on
how to do this?
Any pointers ?
You'll need to customise an image to include the web browser:

2) If the Web-browser build succeeds, how can I install this on the
target ?
Alternatively you can scp the built package (probably
build/tmp/deploy/rpm/ARCH/packagename if you're using the default
settings) to the target device and install with the on-device package
management tools.
