Hello! laugh.gif After several unsuccessful attempts to activate my usb devices, I decided to install another OS.

Now, I am with the Angstrom in its newer version. Once the start I fell in love with him, but I have several questions with respect to the OS.

System Details: SLC-3000 Angstrom (New Version)

Questions:

Basic:

What are the types of applications that can install in angstrom?

Where can I get them?

What are the essential package of applications of Angstrom?

Installed some applications, they have settled, but was not added any icon on the desktop! Why?

Advanced:

I am using Buffalo Wli-CF-S11G card to access internet, it was automatically detected, attempts to communicate (LED power and link active) but not with any response. Sender my WiFi and FON (La Fonera) 100% Ok! What may be happening?

Still can not activate the mouse, or rather active, but can not see the mouse pointer! I need to install a library of icon?

There is some automounter CF / SD / USB for Angstrom?

I doubt the extra! But any help will be welcome! biggrin.gif

Thank you very much!

I am not sure, which image you use. I use development GPE image, so I am answering for GPE image.

These that can live with 64MB of RAM, CPU without FPU and small screen.

Where can I get them?

Angstrom distribution feed (predefined), my feed (in my signature; the same source tree, possibly different package list).

In console as root: opkg update ; opkg list (network must be working)

It depends on your need.

GPE startup uses deprecated way to locate icons. Applications that are not adapted will not appear. I wrote a small utility to fix it (run in console as root; I will place it there soon).

Try commands like iwconfig, ifconfig and route to check, what is happening and follow standard Debian networking howto.

It's not bug, but a feature provided by xcursor-transparent-theme package. Change your cursor theme or uninstall this package. (I never tried this.

No. There is udev mounter, enabled by default.

Sorry! I forgot that great detail. Thanks for the answer anyway, certainly will be of much use.

My system Zaurus:

SL-C3000 Rom 1.11JP
Kernel v.2.6.2.4
OS-Angstrom - Opie v.1.2.3

Sorry if I forgot something again!

These answers are not valid in Opie: Applications (must work with fbdev, X applications do not work), icons in menu, mouse pointer, not sure about automounter. Remaining answers are probably valid for Opie image as well.
