I've enjoyed testing pdaXii13 on the c3000 but Meanie won't be updating it for a while now and I'm looking for something more stable. I'm prepared to sacrifice the bvdd video playback for a more stable OS. The biggest problem with pdaXii13 is that the keyboard mapping is broken- it only works properly for so long after booting X before you end up having to restart X to get the keyboard working again.

The most important tasks it will be performing are

Playing music (OGGS and MP3s) so I'd need a working graphical music player and a screen blanking app


abiword (preferably Ted instead)

Fully working keymap for c3000 inluding sterling sign a CAPS LOCK

USB storage link up

Good picture viewer/ slideshow app

gpe-calendar and alarm


Does gpe-calendar actually work? Is it reliable and can I back up my calendar and expect to safely restore it? Does anybody on these forums actually use gpe-calendar? Hopefully gpe-calendar works better under OZ/Hentges or Angstrom than under pdaXii13 as I always end up with a

database disk image is malformed

error and a corrupt calendar under pdaXii13

Might Hentges, Angstrom (can you currently install Angstrom on the c3000?) or Open/NetBSD offer me a more stable X(FCE) or GPE based OS than pdaXii13 on the c3000 or is Cacko/Sharp my only choice for a stable OS?
