Link to portabase documentation.
http://portabase.sourceforge.net/docs.html

I used it for a short while, seemed like I had to create a template first before it would open my karaoke database, then it never really finished opening it.
(but that database has 21,674 rows, I think that's why Portabase had probs with it)
I went to CSV View instead

I believe portabase is asking you where you want to put your database, before you even start. Not something intuitive to a new linux user.

I've got KA/PI and KO/PI installed.  I definately like the Addressbook.  Not sure I like the organizer feature.  I can't seem to find the Alarm?

You may want to check out qpealarmclock

Just for a decent travel alarm clock it has a lot of features.

Is there a better music player? The default one only shows Track 1, Track 2 while playing music. I want it to show the song name/info. I changed the file names to the song name, but it still won't show up while playing.

Also is there a way to bookmark? for podcasts etd?

Changing the song name will not show as Track info.

If you are using Itunes to rip songs, select the song and right click and set the properties - Song Name, Category, Genre, Artist etc etc.

After that the music player will recognise the song info and show as part of tract info while playing. The file name is just that - a file name.

In fact if I have a song file called "track1.mp3" and it has the track info set (as I mentioned above), the correct song name will show while playing and not the file name - "track1".

I don't collect much music that isn't karaoke, so I use Kino to play my small song collection.
It shows the filenames in it's main window after you add them to the playlist.

I am also interested in a decent music player better in the basic one that comes with the Zaurus. I have seen tkcPlayer by thekompany.com, but I don't like paying that much for a music player with limited support.

I did rip from Itunes, but the song info didn't get transferred. Another problem.
