Hi all. I'm really interested in trying out PocketWorkstation and/or PocketWorkstationXQT on my C860, but can I please get a few questions answered first?

For starters, I am in the right forum (X/QT = PocketWorkstationXQT)? And what's the diff between the above two? Do the above pages have the right info to get me started, or should I go through the main pinned topic first? It seems that if I want a 'true' X desktop I'll have to go the PocketWorkstationXQT way, correct?

And what's pdaxqtrom all about? That seems to be entirely pdaxrom based, right?

And it seems either needs a 'base' install of something else. Do I have to use the official sharp rom, or can I use cacko? Can I use OZ/OPIE? And after I get comfortable with debian, do I ever have to boot back into the other for any reason? Is there any way to install just PocketWorkstation to flash?

thanks in advance

'If you are running OZ and are using PW, what are you using it for and have you checked whether OZ can provide it natively'

We (the developers) want to help, but were having a *&()%&*#*%#*& time getting straight (or remotely usefull) answers out of the users.


- We (the users) sometimes (most of the times) just want to try some things on our Z or use them at some point but don't feel like to bother you (the developers) with something we know we are probably not gonna use for long. For instance I have used erlang from debian, I could tell you erlang is not readily available for OZ and is in debian, but if you build it, I m probably not gonna try your package.

- We (the users) don't have the HW/bandwidth/time/competence (you name it) to setup OE and build software with it. So even if we know X is available as "can be build" with OE, it's far more simple to have PW set up on our Z and to do apt-get install X. I know if it's in OE we can ask hrw, but then we go back to my first point.

Now, if you just want to collect some suggestions about packages not built for OZ and that people might want because they have tried them with debian, here is my personal list: emacs-x11 (there is a package without X) erlang hugs mozart ocaml guile (to try to learn different languages and to run examples from books)
