@ -6,23 +6,32 @@ EPUB files, this program tries fix these issues. It tries to identify
wrong database entries and fix it by reading the corresponding epub
metadata.
## Features
The app tries to fix the following issues in the database
- Correction of wrong firstauthor entries (books_impl table)
- Correction of wrong author entries (books_impl table)
- Removing deleted e-books from the database (various tables)
- Add missing genre if present in epub (genre and booktogenre tables)
## Compatibility
This program is tested on a PocketBook
- *Touch HD 3* (software version 6.1.900)
- *Touch Lux 4* (software version 6.0.1118)
It might work with other PocketBook devices/software versions. Please tell me, if it works for you (and do make a backup of the explorer-3.db file before trying!).

## Build
To be able to build PbDbFixer, you have to have the cross compiler for
ARM CPUs installed. On Arch Linux, the AUR package `arm-linux-gnueabi-gcc75-linaro-bin`
does the job. Don't forget to tell `cargo` which compiler/linker it has to
invoke. In my case, I had to edit `~/.cargo/config`:
