Universal DreamUp for LINUX public BETA

  • Here we go - the first version of DreamUP for Linux.

    To have mostly the same look and feel like DreamUP for Windows, it's an X application..

    As a prerequisite it needs gtk1.2 and gdk-pixbuf (OK, it also needs a running X server ;)). For Debian an "apt-get install libgdk-pixbuf" should install all needed packages.

    Yes, the graphics is not quite like vista, but I wanted the program to have as little prerequisites as possible - gtk-1.2 is available and working on any linux distribution.

    Please run this programm as "root", as it uses ICMP ping, which is only allowed for root (the same applies to windows, but it has an own DLL for PING, running with Administrator privileges *sigh*).

  • Hey good job!

    It works as expected! Got my DM500s flashed in no time. Even my usb serial cable was recognized, very good!


  • near to perfect
    just loosed my 7000 with a bad cvs, and just recovered with this dreamup :D
    only a little doubt: after the dreamup flash, i need to make a manual flash erase (with the front button: after the first boot without press it the 7000 seems to hangs in the dream multimedia diplay screen)
    regards, and good works!!! :)

    it's a file which is zipped with "gzip".
    A simple "type "gunzip <filename>" should help you out.

  • I have some problems with my DM7025, nothing at all happens when I start it, the display is completely blank (lights up though). Completely switching it of also doesn't help.

    So I thought of flashing it again. Since I only have access to a laptop with PCLinuxOS installed with a serial port, I downloaded the Linux version of DreamUP. But I can not get i working, nothing happens when I try to run it. Any special tricks I have to do? I am not very experienced with Linux... I have gtk and gdk-pixbuf installed, but version 2.0 of gtk. Is that possibly a problem?

    I just flashed my dm5620 succesfully on FC6 (gtk2 also). Needed to:
    # cd /usr/lib
    # ln -s libgdk_pixbuf-2.0.so.0.1000.8 libgdk_pixbuf.so.2

    # ls -ltg |head -2

  • Hi,

    I have a DM600PVR and am trying to use the 1.2 version on Ubuntu 7.10.

    However, it doesn't start up. The issue would appear to be a build or packing one - ldd reports that it 'is a not a dynamic executable' - the 1.1 version starts up fine and ldd reports all its dependencies.

    Would it be too much to ask that the source code for this is posted? Would seem a lot more reliable than this hit or miss/torture the users binary approach :-).

    Failing that, a working repost would help..



  • Hello.
    I have now installed Debian 4.0 64 on AMD, and cannot start DreamUP for Linux.
    Getting following error after

    sudo ./DreamUP


    ./DreamUP: error while loading shared libraries: libgdk_pixbuf.so.2: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

    When execute :

    ls /usr/lib/libgdk_pixbuf*


    /usr/lib/libgdk_pixbuf-2.0.so.0 /usr/lib/libgdk_pixbuf.so.2 /usr/lib/libgdk_pixbuf_xlib.la

    lrwxrwxrwx 1 root 22 2007-11-30 12:04 libgdk_pixbuf.so -> libgdk_pixbuf.so.2.0.0

    Any advice will be much appreciated.

  • Problem fixed with link:

    ln -s libgdk_pixbuf-2.0.so.0 /usr/lib32/libgdk_pixbuf.so.2
