I got my Zaurus 5500 last week, and quickly added 128 M flash,
256 M sd, and a Targus Universal wireless IR keyboard and installed
OZ 3.3.5. Had to check out a digital camera from school because
nothing I did to my CF could get me around the dual blinking lights.

My main reason for buying it was to write articles using the Dvorak
keyboard layout on an external keyboard and vim or emacs.
I quickly grew to like the built-in keyboard and now want Dvoark on
that too.

Unfortunately, all I found in my searching was opie-dvorak which is an
on-screen keyboard, posts leading to dead links, and posts asking for
Dvorak and getting no reply. Then the Zaurus forum site disappeared
(found it again, but now here I am). It is a shame that there is no
Dvorak on this, a linux device.

I thus turned to the source code for keyz
and for IRK, (can't find source site anymore), to try to add the support
myself. To do this I had to get development working. I failed to get a
cross compiler working on OSX, and have no room to do the installation
under Gentoo on PPC. I have, however, almost completely succeeded
on-board using the cramfs files from:
http://www.zaurususergroup.com/feed/zgcc2install.html .
I had to add these symbolic links to the instructions,

# ln -sf /mnt/card/.include/Qtopia/ $QTDIR/include

# ln -sf /mnt/card/.zgcc/bin/moc $QTDIR/bin/moc

but now I can compile. However, I cannot make an ipk. The the make
fails when the Makefile calls the 'install' binary.

1) Is there already Dvorak support on the Zaurus?

2) Where do I get the 'install' binary?

Also, where can I get uic ? Needed to compile IRK.
3) How are the keys handled if I am running with no GUI? Can I rotate
the console under these conditions?
Partial answers I have found:/ur/bin/ install comes from fileutils, /usr/bin/uic is available for arm in Debian stable. Trying to satisfy uic dependenices made me run out of space, so don't know how well it would have worked.
