Cross-compiling wget for blackberry 10 (QNX)

How to compile wget for blackberry 10

Prepare

  1. Download from here http://ftp.gnu.org/gnu/wget/
  2. Extract sources archive, (using extract for example)
  3. Or run tar xf wget-1.15.tar.xz
  4. Copy file bb10_compile from this gist to source folder

Compile

cd wget-1.15
chmod +x bb10_compile
./bb10_compile

If it worked well then run make:

# load variables
tmp_pwd=`pwd`; cd /Applications/Momentics.app && source bbndk-* && cd $tmp_pwd; unset tmp_pwd;
make

No you can see ./src/wget - executable for blackberry.

Run

You can put ./src/wget to your application and upload to phone. Then run with ssh.


If you can't compile, this is download link https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/586048/bb10/wget

#! /bin/sh
tmp_pwd=`pwd`
cd /Applications/Momentics.app && source bbndk-* && cd $tmp_pwd
QNX_BINS="${QNX_HOST}/usr/bin"
./configure CC="${QNX_BINS}/qcc" CXX="${QNX_BINS}/qcc" \
LDFLAGS="-Vgcc_ntoarmv7le" RANLIB="ntoarmv7-ranlib" AR="ntoarmv7-ar" \

Yes, but it should work on linux too if you change /Applications/Momentics.app
On windows - I don't know. May be you can just import .h and binary files

How did you make it run on the device? I can't make it executable. chmod/umask/tar -p doesn't work for me :( Always end up with can't execute: need permissions

Ok. Figured that out. I can't change files permissions in folders owned by root which is all folders created from the file manager. But can do whatever I want from term48 home folder. And it works. Thanks for the script 👍

Hi, I tried to compile wget 1.19 (latest at this time) and it looks like the Momentics C compiler (SDK version 10.3.1.12) cannot handle it:

...

(full report here).

Would that mean that Wget 1.19 is - 'too new' ?

Any hint would be extremely apreciated! :)

hmm, compilation was successful with wget-1.19.5. Strange.
