ZimReader for Openmoko

Since an offline encyclopedia is most valuable on mobile
devices, I worked on building ZimReader for the Openmoko
As a start I did a native build on a Debian (hackable:1 )
driven Openmoko Freerunner. After fixing some minor build
issue (, ), I can now browse Wikipedia offline on the
ZimReader performs amazingly well on the limited resources
of the device. I use it in conjunction with woosh, a browser
that comes with hackable:1. The content resides on SD-card.
A full-text search takes around 5s, mostly even less.
Since I'm not too much into packaging, I wrapped up a tar
ball for those interested in binaries . Please see the
Readme for installation instructions.
Note: The binaries will most likely _not_ run on OE-based
distributions (OM2009, SHR). They have only been tested
on hackable1. I'll try to supply packages for other distros, as
soon as I find the time.
Thank's a lot to the openzim team for their great work!
