Yes ... who did you asked?!? There's no activity on pdaXrom mailing list _at all_ . I (was) one of the developers, but - sorry to say that, pdaxrom newer than b3 is a dead cause. Because noone is working on it, and because the builder suxx big time. The most error-full app I've ever seen. I managed to build correctly only ONCE. And of course - I gave up.

So I doubt there will be new version at all. It's just dead. If you want newest and coolest stuff - go to angstrom, debian or poky.

Beta 3 with all the packages I do and upgrades, works great for me. I wish there was at least 256mb of ram ... sad.gif

Hi :-)
I ask via PM ... (please don't reask, they are on heavy work!) ...

They are doing a complete rebuild on pdaXrom (V2.0.0) on a newer 2.6.xx kernel ... kernel work done by maybe 90% ... I don't know how far is GUI! THey said that if it is going to Beta state there will be an announce on the projects homepage ... Hope to get it soon because angstoem-distribution.org is getting really fine :-)

Please GoOn pdaXrom ...

Thanks to devs for their hard work !
Martin


Thanks for the info but who is working on this stuff?


Thanks Again for the support Martin, myself and Sash (defiently not MIA). As martin said ,yes pdaXrom is getting built again from scratch, literally, from scratch. We have a working bootable "shell only" rom, with functional CF, USB, SD(MMC), Hotplug, etc. There is still a lot of work that needs to be done but it is being worked on.

pdaXrom isn't dead, we are just hiding :-)

Something makes me wonder here and this is the phrase:

QUOTE
It is envisioned that a basic Angstrom install should be easily turned into a pdaXng system by installing the pdaxng-base mega package into Angstrom. Angstrom is build upon a sound foundation and thus a potential hacker's dream system but it lacks in the usability department for general users. This is where pdaXng improves upon Angstrom. pdaXng was not designed to compete with Angstrom but rather it is an attempt to supplement and improve in areas where Angstrom is lacking.


The basic consequence of that would imho be to base everything on the sophisticated Angstrom base including build system, kernel, glibc, modules, etc. and put primary efforts on customising Xfce, enlightenment, whatever to the pdaXRom feeling.

But from what I read this is not the case, maybe I am wrong here, so please correct me.
If I am right then I still see lots redundant efforts which I feel is disappointing.

That sounded like what was planned to me, as well. Actually it sounded like a very good idea. I sincerely hope it happens.

Don't need QT4 at all. Why would you think so? Of course, it will be compiled for the Z. How is the OSS software on that i-phone?



I like my iPhone too. Probably the best phone I've ever owned. Still like my Z, even though at the moment it's just an expensive paper weight. Freaking debian.....



the best mobile phone is nokia. Only in Usa Iphone sells, in europe (italy in particular) the market is very very hard and iphone don't do.. tongue.gif

I used to think that too until I got my wife an N95. The bloody volume up switch has a weak solder joints (known issue) and popped off less than three months after we got it. The unit has been a case the whole time and has not been dropped. Nokia Canada says they won't fix it even though it is still under warranty. Her next phone will definately not be a Nokia and I won't allow anymore Nokias into the cell fleet at my company. mad.gif

To expand; I think it was to be built with the same system as Angstrom, using core work from Angstrom and PdaXrom, while being essentially a separate and distinct system with (probably) some variations in dependencies and versions. Since it appears that meanie has wandered off we may never know. Though it is to be hoped, failntly, that he may re-emerge with some version of pdaxng yet

Closed source isn't always bad. Show me a fully open source cell phone. The openmoko isn't even completely open.

Back on topic.
Is there any news on pdaxng?
Debian, Angstrom and Android installs seem too complex, so I'm sticking with pdaxrom.
If only someone would port Puppy Linux to ARM, I would probably try that. smile.gif

I need to get on the ball with sending updates, I apologize.
Yes, we are still in the works of getting it stable enough to start releasing nightly builds. (more like weekly builds)

Current functional stuff.
USB, SD, CF, Touchscreen, Suspend, Date/Time after reboot, X starts at boot,

Working on
Sound, Xorg, Boot time optimizations,...

I just opened up our pdaxrom-everyone mailing list to the public, You wont see to much traffic on there (hopefully that will change), but if you would like to become involved in pdaxrom please join.
