It appears that my Java port of the Krokodile Commander software generated almost no interest at all :) I guess all the people who were previously asking for a Java version on the forums were actually just wanting a Mac OS X version. Nonetheless, I have done some more work on the Java version to add multicart support, and increase the transfer speed. The new version is attached to this entry, and the documentation is contained in a README file inside the zip. It is still a command-line application, but it now has essentially the same feature set as the OS X version, except for the cart database. This is probably as far as I will go with this as it now does everything that I want with the software. However, if anyone else would like to improve it, e.g. add a GUI, then they are more than welcome to modify the source code.

EDIT: I have attached a precompiled version of the jkrok software for Linux x86 below. Instructions are in the README inside the zip. Let me know if there are any problems, as this was done in a hurry!

Thanks! I'm in the process of switching over to Linux and was wondering how I was going to flash my Krokocart! :)

 

Now I just need to learn how to compile for my OS. :lol:

 

Cheers!

Great - I am glad that someone else will find it useful! It is a bit of a pain to set up, but works well once you have got past this stage. Feel free to PM me if you get stuck with the installation.

Maybe it is because the LINUX version was not available until now. So the "LINUX only" people were not interested in a Krokodile Cart. This will probably change now. And thanks again for spending so much time to enhance the Krokodile Cart :D

Thanks - the Krok Cart is a great bit of hardware, and I hope that this will let more people use it. You are welcome to include this software with the Krok Cart, though it is not entirely user-friendly yet. If it would help, I could put together a Linux-specific version which includes all of the necessary libraries and avoids the need to compile the code?

:D It would help me! I've been using Linux for almost a month and I feel like such a newbie! I've tried to compile many programs, but I always have errors!

OK, I will put together a precompiled Linux version and post it to this blog in a few days time. This version will only require the Java Runtime Environment (JRE) 5.0 to be installed on your machine.
