I have an SL-5000D, I'm trying to configure it for a remote controll to a web based server program on my home-office network. My Zaurus has a wireless network card and a 128 SD card.

I have been working with the OZ-Opie 3.5.3 ROM and trying to install Opera 7.55, I'm getting closer all the time and may eventually but it has been an education.

I was trying to unistall some of the PIM application this morning and corrupted something becausr now the Zaurus only comes up in Linux terminal mode and blah blah blah... I don't think it is a big problem... but I figured I'd do a flash install of the ROM this evening after work as an easy fix, since I have not data to protect..

But now I'm wondering and asking for advice from fellow SL-5000D users which is the best ROM for my needs.

OZ-Opie:
addvantage - starting to know what I'm doing...
addvantage - great wireless network recongnition...
disaddvantage - A lot of stuff I don't need and missing the one thing I do want (Web Broswer - though it can be installed

Cacko
addvantage - home is on a SD card lots of room for system (well maybe not lots, but more)
unknow Wireless networking out of the box?
browser installed?
easy to install?
getting rid of application (PIM)

Qtopia
looks pretty
alot more stuff than needed
browser?
wireless?

Any advice...
Thanks Larry

I'm not a 5000D user, but:

If you don't need stuff then you can just remove it - 'ipkg remove <package name>'

If you are using the feeds make sure you add the fix to stop the package lists from being stored in ROM (which is limited). See here: http://www.oesf.org/forums/index.php?showtopic=12737&hl=

You can do this with OZ if you want (though I still don't quite understand why) - you do know that (pretty much) all the OZ programs are quite happy to be installed to an ext2 formatted card - 'ipkg install -d sd <package name>' will install to SD, then run 'ipkg-link mount /media/card/packages' to link them so they will run (you might need to add the dest entry to /etc/ipkg.conf - I'm not sure how it's set up on your machine. The entry will be 'dest sd /media/card/packages').

Thank you...

I have finally gotten the one application I wanted running; installed on the SD card with the OZ 3.5.3, (due to the patience of many people, of which you where one, so thank you...) so my ROM question is answered by default.

What are the package names for the applications in the PIM that can be safely removed?

Thanks again, Larry
