Yesterday, Sharp released a free photo viewer/management software, PhotoStorage:

Download page: http://www.zaurusworld.ne.jp/menu21/photo/
Direct link: http://www.zaurusworld.ne.jp/menu21/photo/...e_1.0.0_arm.ipk
Screenshots: http://www.mobilenews.ne.jp/news/all/zaurus.html

Unfortunately, this software is SL-C3000 only. The ipk contains a preinstall script that confirms that the model is a C3000. The software can be installed manually, but will segfault when run. I have tried preloading some of the C3000 libraries, but so far, no luck.

[UPDATE: I had a look at the binary... it looks like the software itself also checks the model number (by looking at /proc/deviceinfo/product), so getting it to run on anything else is probably a no go.]

An interesting side note... the preinstall script checks not only for SL-C3000, but also SL-C3100. Looks like there *might* (note: *might*) be a new Zaurus on the horizon.

SL-C3100?? Dare we speculate what this possible new unit might have? BT? 4 inch screen? Tivo like functionality like the Archos PMA400? We can only hope.

Thanks for making that 3000-only, Sharp, it obviously seems to be absolutely useless for us 6000 and 860 users. What a great way to create customer fidelity, too.

After reading some of the 2ch forums, I found that it *is* possible to run PhotoStorage on other models; to do it, you just have to edit the preinst script to reflect your model, as well as use a hexeditor to replace the SL-C3000 string with your model number (for example, change 33 30 30 30 -> 37 36 30 00).

The software does not require any C3000 specific libs. The segmentation fault I was experiencing earlier seems to be a problem I am having with my current ROM setup, as it works fine on a fresh install of Cacko 1.22.

The recent update of NetFront was the same deal. The NetFront preinstall script contained nothing except the version check. If this is the case with this new program, you could just delete it from the package. if it contains more than that, you could edit it and replace it in the package. You could then re-create the package with the edited (or deleted) preinstall script and the edited binary and install it as normal. That should take about 5 minutes for someone who knows what they're doing. I wouldn't recommend publicly distributing the new package though...

How would I change the string for SL-5600?

43 33 30 30 30 > ? 35 36 30 30

If I delete the 43 for 'C' I get this:

bash-2.05$ photostorage BUG IN DYNAMIC LINKER ld.so: dynamic-link.h: 62: elf_get_dynamic_info: Assertion `! "bad dynamic tag"' failed!

I realize that it will not fit the screen properly but is it possible to open it at all?

You must make sure not to add or delete any bytes when editing a binary file - only replace.

Even with this, though, I doubt it will work on a 5600. However, I don't have a 5600 and have never tried running C-model specific software on one, so I can't confirm this.

Ok I chaged the file around so that it reads like this: SL-6000...SL-C31009.....
I now get:

SlSharedManager: can't get proc entry
Null driver cannot connect
Aborted

Any Ides? Am running a sl-6000 with the default rom.

How about make it SL-6000L(or N/W)? Sorry I don't have time to try it myself, looking forward for the good news. TIA

Here is the version, which should run on any Zaurus:

http://cacko.oesf.org/downloads/photostorage_1.0.0-1_arm.ipk

Unfortunately, all messages all Japanese inside, so it cannot be easily translated to English...

Thanks for this information, it does indeed work on a 5600... but because of screen size and Japanese language it's pretty useless on the 5xxx series.(unless you read Japanese) This bit of info will help me to fix some other problems I've had in the past with my hexediter and lack of knowledge.

I was going to ask if anyone needed an ipk but I see that maslovsky has already made one for you.

Thanks

thanks, maslovsky. Was able to lauch the program sucessfully. Everything goes well untill I want to do the slide show. The pictures are overlayed by blue thin stripes and moving from left to right in the landscape. The same thing happens when I double-click the thumnail to dispaly the picture in the full window. The thunails do look ok though.

Then I did the stupid thing. I think it might be something wrong with the libjpeg. So I installed the libjpeg_6b-0_arm.ipk. This makes the program unlaunchable. I uninstalled the libjpeg, not working. uninstalled the photostorage and reinstalled it, complained about dependency error. Now no matter with or w/o libjpeg installed, the program won't launch for me anymore. Don't know what's behind the weird behavior.

Seems I had to say goodbye to Phtostroage untill next time I flash my rom. Nice program though.

The program worked just fine on my 750. Must be some specifics to your 6000 model...

Hi,

Thanks for making the ipk available.
I am running a 6000 and I have exactly the same issues as xjqian. It launches well, everything goes fine till I click on a thumbnail or view a slideshow where images are rotated by 180 degrees and appear with yellow, blue moving stripes.
After closing the program (wich takes about 5 second) I still can see a part of the user interface at the bottom of the screen.
I didn't have libjpeg installed though.
After a first take, I like this software.
