I just switched over from pdaXrom to OZ/GPE and like the system a lot so far (it detected my SanDisk Wi-Fi card right out of the gate, which immediately put it in my good books.) Unfortunately, it's web browser doesn't seem to realize that I'm using a C750 with a full VGA screen in a landscape orientation, rather than a tiny cell phone or PDA, and as such refuses to display pages the way they're "meant" to be seen.

Whenever I try to load up a page with any kind of reasonably complex layout (I usually use Slashdot for test purposes) it simply stacks all the elements on top of each other vertically instead of displaying them side-by-side they way they should be. I tried Dillo as well but it seems to have the same problem (which is odd because the version of Dillo included with pdaXrom worked perfectly in this respect.)

Is this just a configuration issue, or is Minimo simply incapable of properly rendering a web page and, if it's the former, how do I set it up to do so?

Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

I don't know much about minimo I'm afraid, but you could also try gpe-mini-browser.

Regarding dillo, do you know what version pdaX use? It's probably older, but may have different patches. If this is the case it might be worth either adding that version, or forward porting the patches/etc. (or if it's a recently created problem, notifying the dillo devs).

for rc12:

default dillo is 0.8.5-i18n-misc

the sources for pdaxrom are available here:
http://mail.pdaxrom.org/rc12/src/

I'll check if there are some specific patches in the builder

Minimo renders pages with "small screen optimizations", so pages can be vieweable with small screens (think QVGA). If you don't like Minimo's rendering, gpe-mini-browser is the way to go wink.gif

In answer to the original question, yes, minimo can render tables properly, and very well too...

It doesn't do it in its default configuration. How do I change that?

If it's not, ask hrw to add it to the upgrades feed (there's a pinned thread in oz/common).

It will be available in 3.5.4; the upgrades feed is just for stuff which was added/fixed/etc after the release of 3.5.3.
