hello,

i'm using the kde-pim package. so i want to remove the pim programs
given by the sharp rom, but the default package manager does not show
such preinstalled packages. is there any working advanced package
manager out there or another possibility to remove such programs?

thanx

I was thinking about that too - to install the fast kernel I had to remount / as rw, so I'm pretty sure it's possible to rip all that junk out, I just don't know what it would get you. I don't think you could take that extra space and really do much of anything with it, since it's in the normally read-only part of memory. Someone please tell me I'm wrong though, because I've not once ever even opened any of the default pim stuff on my machine, and I'd love to use the space for something useful.

hmmm.... i just manually popped in a kernel module for my sharp camera doing the unmount mount,rw bit. Wouldn't it be possible to mount the ro filesystem rw, pull the sharp pim, manually splice in the bits of kde pim more or less where the Sharp pim stuff was, set up links and then just.... reboot?

It sounds like a colossal PIA, and might not work right. But it SHOULD be possible.

On the other hand, You could just go in and pull the sharp pim stuff, then install k/pi to your sd..... If you knew what & where the sharp stuff was smile.gif

If it still matters, the sharp pim apps are in /usr/QtPalmtop.rom.... binlib and bin, I think. poke around in there.

If you do:
mount -n -o remount,rw /

this remounts the read-only file system as read /write
then you can go in and remove "datebook" address and todo..and so on.

after that it should just be a matter of popping in kpimpi

Sorry about the delay on getting back to this.

hmm... I wonder if this would work on my SL-5500 with Sharp Rom 3.13.
I would like to remove Opera 6 and replace it with Opera 7.55.
That would be a big space-saver for me if it would work.

After entering

mount -n -o remount,rw /

... will the sensitive system files always be read/write? I'd like to go back to read-only once I'm done deleting the files in usr/QtPalmtop.rom

Once you reboot, it will be back to read only.
