Failed to install a native app into webOS(emulator)

Hi, I met a error while install a native app to webOS(qemux86), my steps are the followings:

  1. build & install webOS(./mcf -p 2 -b 2 qemux86), Building webOS OSE | webOS Open Source Edition

  2. build & install NDK(./mcf -p 2 -b 2 qemux86), Native Development Kit Setup | webOS Open Source Edition

  3. write a simple native app(just print "Hello world"), build it and package it, Developing External Native Apps | webOS Open Source Edition

  4. check what arch the executable file is
    jaychou@jaychou-VirtualBox:~/samples/native-apps/external/com.sample.helloworld/BUILD$ cd ..

  5. check if it can run

    Hello world!jaychou@jaychou-VirtualBox:~/samples/native-apps/external/com.sample.helloworld/pkg_x86$ ^C

  6. package it to IPK
    jaychou@jaychou-VirtualBox:~/samples/native-apps/external/com.sample.helloworld/pkg_x86$ cd ..
    jaychou@jaychou-VirtualBox:~/samples/native-apps/external/com.sample.helloworld$ ares-package pkg_x86/
    Create com.sample.helloworld_0.0.1_x86.ipk to /home/jaychou/samples/native-apps/external/com.sample.helloworld

I am at a loss currently as to what should I do, any help would be appreciated,
Thank you in advance.

My demo native app is very simple.

  1. Source file 'main.c' are as follows:
    jaychou@jaychou-VirtualBox:~/samples/native-apps/external/com.sample.helloworld/src$ ll
    总用量 12
    drwxrwxr-x 2 jaychou jaychou 4096 5月 17 13:57 ./
    drwxrwxr-x 6 jaychou jaychou 4096 5月 17 10:35 ../
    -rw-rw-r-- 1 jaychou jaychou 787 5月 11 10:50 main.c
    jaychou@jaychou-VirtualBox:~/samples/native-apps/external/com.sample.helloworld/src$ cat main.c

#include <stdio.h>
#include <stdlib.h>
#include <string.h>

int main(int argc, char **argv)
{
fprintf(stdout, "Hello world!");
exit(0);
}

  1. CMakeLists.txt are as follows:
    jaychou@jaychou-VirtualBox:~/samples/native-apps/external/com.sample.helloworld$ cat CMakeLists.txt

cmake_minimum_required(VERSION 2.8.7)
project(helloworld C CXX)

include_directories(${CMAKE_SOURCE_DIR})
include_directories(${CMAKE_SOURCE_DIR}/src)
include_directories(${CMAKE_SOURCE_DIR}/include)

set(BIN_NAME helloworld)

set(SRC_LIST
${CMAKE_SOURCE_DIR}/src/main.c
)

set(CMAKE_RUNTIME_OUTPUT_DIRECTORY "${CMAKE_SOURCE_DIR}/pkg_$ENV{ARCH}/")
add_executable(${BIN_NAME} ${SRC_LIST})
set_target_properties(${BIN_NAME} PROPERTIES LINKER_LANGUAGE C)

target_link_libraries (${BIN_NAME}
)

if(EXISTS "${CMAKE_SOURCE_DIR}/appinfo.json")
file(COPY "${CMAKE_SOURCE_DIR}/appinfo.json" DESTINATION ${CMAKE_RUNTIME_OUTPUT_DIRECTORY})
else()
MESSAGE( "'appinfo.json' file was not found !!")
endif()

if(EXISTS "${CMAKE_SOURCE_DIR}/icon.png")
file(COPY "${CMAKE_SOURCE_DIR}/icon.png" DESTINATION ${CMAKE_RUNTIME_OUTPUT_DIRECTORY})
else()
MESSAGE( "'icon.png' file was not found !!")
endif()

  1. appinfo.json are as follows:
    jaychou@jaychou-VirtualBox:~/samples/native-apps/external/com.sample.helloworld$ cat appinfo.json
    {
    "id": "com.sample.helloworld",
    "version": "0.0.1",
    "vendor": "My Company",
    "type": "native",
    "main": "helloworld",
    "title": "helloworld",
    "icon": "icon.png"
    }

  2. Check whether the app is valid and it show 'no problems detected'

jaychou@jaychou-VirtualBox:~/samples/native-apps/external/com.sample.helloworld/pkg_x86$ ll

jaychou@jaychou-VirtualBox:~/samples/native-apps/external/com.sample.helloworld/pkg_x86$ ares-package -c
no problems detected

Eveything seems normal, and I don't know why it failed when installing...

@initialjie ,

This error is similar to Failed to install a native app into webOS(emulator).

So it also will be fixed in OSE 2.11.0 release.

It need more time to figure out.

If we fix this error, we'll let you know in this post.

Thanks!

Long time no see!

This issue was resolved in webOS OSE build #359.
You can check the resolved version in webOS OSE 2.11.0 release. :grin: (at the end of June)

Thanks for reporting the issue and have a nice day!
