    Hi everyone. I just got a new 32gb iPod Touch (running 1.1.4) and I have jailbroken it. One of the biggest reasons I did this was to get the application wiki2touch, but I can't seem to figure out how to get it to work. I feel like I am almost there but googling didn't help me out. My situation is as follows:

    1. I added the source to my iPod Touch and downloaded the base program
    2. I downloaded the utilities pack for OSX as well as the wiki2touch 0.60 pack
    3. I transferred the contents of the applications folder to my iPT using CyberDuck
    I then downloaded the english latest articles pack (enwiki-latest-pages-articles.xml.bz2) and put it in the OSX executables folder. I can navigate to that folder with terminal, but when I try to input a ./indexer command line it gives me a bus error...

    If anyone could help me out I would very much appreciate it as I'm running out of hair to pull out of my head :)

    Unfortunately, I do not have a Mac, so I cannot specifically help you. If you don't want to wait for an answer here, I suggest that you go over to the Wiki2Touch forum and ask the question there. The author frequents the site and is very helpful.

    FInally figured it out

    I have also had the same problem. I have been following your posts in other sites to see if someone answered question. All you have to to is type into the Terminal:"cd " then you drag the downloaded xxwiki folder into the session and press return. It will change the directory so you can now start fooling around with this folder. Then you type in the ./indexer etc. and vola. Mine is still currently indexing and it takes a long time lol.:D
