Survex on OLPC / XO

"One Laptop Per Caver"

My XO was croaking a little after various fiddles that had already taken place, so I reflashed direct from a USB stick (just download two files, plugin & reboot...): http://wiki.laptop.org/go/Activated_Upgrade

Changed over to XFCE4 via these instructions: http://wiki.laptop.org/go/Xfce

Notes on OLPC/XFCE: To mount drive, open XFCE file manager (central 'folder' icon in dock) and click on device in left pane.

Got working cavern+aven binaries direct from Ubuntu Hardy Heron distribution via:

get the /usr/share/survex in its rightful place (need to be root), otherwise will complain about missing language info.

You now have working cavern!

Compiles mig.sxv (3291 stations, 3316 shots) in \~2 or 3 s.

Aven

Needs

(Note caps!)

Hmm, unfortunately this provides on the OLPC the 2.8 version of the libraries, whereas the Ubuntu aven links to 2.6. What now?

xcaverot

Alas even xcaverot is imcompatible: loads fonts in the old style X-server way, which have been removed from the OLPC to slim down X11.
