I developed a Python application on my Linux desktop that I would now like to move to my Zaurus SL-6000L. I have almost no experience using the Zaurus, so I'm having very basic troubles. I have a copy of what I believe was the Riverbank Computing Python package (called python_2.3.3-1.0_arm.ipk). I move it from my Linux machine onto a CF and then insert the CF in my Zaurus. Under files, I select the CF. The ipk appears on the list. Selecting it launches Package Installer. I hit the Install button at the bottom and exit the app when told to. I'm pretty sure that it's installed because when I select Uninstall packages, it shows up there. So now what? There's no icon for running Python. To convince myself that I was using the right procedure for installing packages, I tried downloading another application. An icon appeared that launches the application. Another posting here mentions a Python image from kopsis, but I find nothing at their web site. If that's a better package to use, how do I get a copy?
