I just installed OZ 3.5.3 with the opie-40-24 image and it looks slick. I am having a few problems that I have not found answers to yet.

I have the common errors about libqte and libqpe (is there an explaination of what exactly is wrong with the installed versions?) and another strange problem.

When I install apps, the package manager occasionally crashes (hangs). I reset the device and when it boots it says bus error and opie will never start again, causing a reflash.

Is there a "Install these first list" for new installations of 3.5.3?

3.5.2 worked great, but I have yet to sucessfully install a single app in this new version. Mostly massive errors about symlinking failing on my SD card (ext2) and of course lib errors for libs that are installed.

EDIT: I got the SD problem worked out. I had formatted the card on my Debian Sid box instead of the Z. I reformatted it on the Z and now I can install to it.

I also found the renamed sharp-lib-compat and installed it, although it squawked about failed simlinks again. It appears in the launcher but clicking on it gives an hourglass for a few seconds then nothing. ????? I got Opera and the Handcom stuff installed, but none of it is much good without OZcompat.

On a side note, Openzaurus and its developers kick *ss. Just thought it needed to be said again.
