I haven't been posting lately because I've just discovered a cool game for the PC. (It's a long one)
Elder Scrolls IV Oblivion

same for me but on my PSP laugh.gif

no, to be honest, i've discovered OpenBSD on my C3000 and i'm spending time (nights!) compiling packages to it ! i really think openbsd is THE zaurus distro we are waiting (specially for the C3000!!!), although there are still some quirks...

I've noticed some decline too. I guess this is the time to systematize the information that is already in the forums. Create more how-to's. Address some old unresolved issues/problems.


Hear-hear!

pdaXrom seems to be getting a lot of new packages recently.

I think there are two key issues for Z software:
1) the quality of the device drivers in the kernel (i.e. whether to stick with sharp & derivatives, especially cacko, and get stability at the cost of features, or to go with OZ and k2.6.17 etc).
2) the ease of porting apps designed for PDA use to the GUI (whether GTK/X11 like GPE, qtopie or opie, or plain X11).

which way you lean for 1 comes down to whether you want a PDA or a mini linux workstation. For 2, sadly, you have to make the choice because the Z doesn't have the raw performance to load a full set of drivers and libraries to run the best apps from the different gui systems all at the same time.

I think a lot of people start with Cacko, might dip their feet in OZ, and depending how they get on, stick with OZ or even jump to pdaXrom, or go back to Cacko and wait patiently for a slow evolution rather than the OZ bleeding-edge revolution.

I don't know why antikz obscures the URL in his sig... I could understand obfuscating an email address but that's a bit odd.

Talking from my own experience. As I moved from SharpROM to pdaXrom, the problems I had are less Z specific, but kind of linux problems in general. So I'd spent more time googling the net, reading posts/other linux forums, etc... than posting immature questions/answers in the forum. I guess same trend happens when people move to OpenBSD or OZ.

So maybe the lack of the activity in the forum is not a bad sign at all, rather a sign of maturity of our community.

In a way I agree with xjqian. I also find myself hunting for sources and information for linux in general, perhaps even more often than searching the forums, after i switched to pdaXrom about a year ago.
OpenBSD is also very tempting to try as soon as there is SD support. smile.gif

In my case, it's because there is not much new going on with the sl5500. I do lurk a lot absorbing general knowledge (and following what I call "the dream/wish" threads like anything with "new Zaurus," or Zaurus replacement," in the title), but posting is not necessary. I can't think of any new questions to ask concerning my two sl5500s, which are both running Cacko Crow (and which I am very happy with) and it's very rare for me to see anyone newbier than I asking anything that I could answer. I do have an extra Z to try new stuff on, but I never can seem to get OZ working properly and as far as the sl5500, the new OZ releases are THE bad (as in good/bad), the bold and the new. I am glad that the forum is here and even though I don't post much, it's not due to lack of interest (yeah forget all that other stuff, that's what I really meant to say).

yeah, it's a little bit annoying altough you can use a usb host cable with a sdcard reader wink.gif

in fact i was talking about installing another OS on the SL-C3000 specificaly as it appears that Cacko ou pdaxrom are difficult to install on it...
installing openbsd on my c3000 was quite a charm, and once installed it is running out of the box without googling for configuration help wink.gif
moreover on openbsd you can compile and install your own packages directly on the zaurus with xscale optimization

I was having to moderate 30-50 spam comments a day, so I deceided to change my sig so that it may not get harvested as easily.
I've since found a better way to deal with the spam comments, so the next time I'm in my sig, I'll change it back.
I'm strange, I know. wink.gif
