pdaXqtrom 0.8.2 done. new website at http://pdaxqtrom.thegrinder.ws

bug fixes:

-- thunderbird now works (permission problem with extensions fixed)
-- dosbox does not depend on zgcc image anymore (also renamed package to dosbox-x11)
-- fixed epdfview crash

new features/updates:

-- icewm (can use fluxbox or icewm)
-- grisbi updated to 0.5.9

new apps:

- homebank 3.2 compiled
- knowde 1.8.0 compiled
- xpad 2.11 compiled
- xournal 0.3.1 compiled


optimizations: (put on hold)

this will not be on the images but available as a saparate package (since it will only work on the new clamshells)
-- mplayer 1.0pre8 compiles with iwmmxt optimisations but segfaults after a few seconds when run sad.gif

I might look into compiling stuff with iwmmxt optimisations to make apps run faster, but this would mean it would onlly work on the newer clamshell models...

Please do not let us 6000 user out!
PdaXQTRom holds the main apps I am using on the Z (ie, Gnumeric).

During the installation process, I see the script looking for a games pack, is this somewhere in process (there are many games in pdaxqt I would be happy to see on the Z). :-)

That would be interesting. I wonder how much of an improvement it would make. It seems the biggest speed killer at the moment is memory swapping.

oh well, scratch this idea.. hmm, put it on hold for a while. too busy with other things...

I was planning on making a games image but never got to building it... time is limited unfortunately...but if I manage to build a games image, there won't be any adventure games that depend on speed and fast graphics...

I have to say it's pretty brilliant! It's the best of both worlds :-)

I'd be interested to see if that tweak you were considering for the clamshell models really does increase the speed noticeably.

Not sure if this will help. I found it in 5 seconds putting that error into google:

http://www.ale.org/archive/ale/ale-2004-12/msg00335.html

If it does work, it would be nice to post the results, so others will know what to do...

Hi Meanie, thanks for the great work again.

I've a problem. I ran the pdaxqtrom-install.sh, everyting go well until when it try to install zgcc2-95-3. It seems there's a mounting problem

mount: Mounting /hdd3/pdaxqtrom/zgcc2-95-3.squashfs on /mnt/zgcc failed: Invalid argument

/hdd3/pdaxqtrom is where I save the images. Could you give me any idea where could possibly went wrong? From df, the pdaXqtrom-base mount on /dev/loop1 and pdaXqtrom-app mount on /dev/loop2 and they're working fine.

hmm. did you install automounter? it looks like you ran out of loop devices (the default being 2). automounter creates more loop devices, but the install script should had created more as well...
