I just recently decided that to put OZ on my Zaurus Sl5500. I've got the Hentges OPIE image ( on there now, but I'm really interested in the GPE environment. I like the whole "normal computer desktop" interface.

My concern is that there are a number of tools (and games, i admit) I use in Opie which are packaged as "opie-[packagename]". I'm assuming these apps wouldn't work under GPE, but my question is whether or not that assumption is right?

Can you use OPIE apps in GPE?

Anything I should be aware of before reflashing?

To answer your question more precisely than the previous posters: (There answers are correct, however) You cannot run any OPIE application on GPE, whether the package name begins with opie or not.

Beside, the PIM data is imcompatible, i.e. you cannot access your OPIE schedule from GPE. I guess, you know... Therefore you should wipe the home partition, the OPIE stuff is useless in GPE.
