A few questions for anyone out there who has one of these:

is there a zgcc that works with the stock OS image?

do you have full use capabilities with an external display (meaning, can you use a lcd tv as a monitor for opera or word processing, etc.)?

Not sure zgcc has been used yet, there might not be enough space, unless you could use the hard disk. External display is tv-out, in Qtopia at 320x240 res, the video apps are higher resolution. Maybe it might be possible to increase res for Qtopia tv-out?

hrm

increasing the rez for video out from inside qtopia would work. Or maybe a chroot debian environment could handle the 320x240 internal display x (yeah, but ONE xterm window is all i need if i have screen!) with higher resolution output to a tv/monitor--- now, that wold be useful.

( I assume the drive could be partitioned so that debian would be able to live on it adequately)

Or, of course, pdaxrom, which is what i tend to run- could support multiple resolutions in x with different outputs. I would probably lose the cool encoding and playback, though.
