Hi Guys,

I found this http://www.users.on.net/~hluc/myZaurus/distros.html

Who is working on this and when will it be available?


"The Next Generation Zaurus distro - Linux 2.6 and EABI

There currently is a lot of work being done on creating newer and better distros for the Zaurus based on the 2.6 kernel. Work on pdaXrom is still ongoing and has progressed to version r198. It still is full of annoying bugs. OpenZaurus is no more. It has been abandoned in favour of its successor, Angstrom. There has been some progress made in Angstrom which is also based on the latest 2.6 kernel as well as EABI. It is currently still in an unstable state. Debian has also been revamped and the new version is also using EABI and 2.6 kernel. There is no Debian installer for armel build for Zaurus yet, but it is possible to boot Debian for the Zaurus using a combo of bootloaders and custom 2.6 kernels. The future for a 2.6 kernel based distro on the Zaurus seems to be either with derivatives of Angstrom or Debian which are build using OpenEmbedded. Binaries compiled for each should be binary compatible, but library dependencies will be an issue.

pdaXng will be the next generation of pdaXii13 but build on top of a stable 2.6 kernel and updated libraries. It will retain the look and feel of pdaXrom but not be based on the pdaXrom code base and definately not use uboot."


When will we get a beta release?

Joined the list, I don't know what I can do to help other than test.. and I am ok with fudging my pdaxrom install to get something better! Is there going to be a vote or something on which wm to use, or has there been a decision already? Im all for xfce, but would prefer Gnome.

ISO already made the call: LXDE

I'm going to get it all set up as soon as I get an image built to test it on.

lxde looks very suitable. I'm looking forward to it.

btw, is firefox3 going to make it in?

I'm not sure. ISO and I bandied the idea about, but it never went anywhere.

I'm guessing that it won't be the first/primary browser, however, if it does.

FF3 will atleast be built for pXr v2 (ipkg)... it is still on the fence if it will be part of the the official build.

I'll look forward to an FF3 addon, then smile.gif

Actually, that's an interesting question. I've discovered (on my N810 running Debian) that Epiphany/Gecko renders faster and generally works better than Epiphany/Webkit. It takes a little longer to start up, but after that is more usable.

Webkit may be better on the Z, however, if the Gecko speedup is partly due to the N810's additional RAM and if Webkit performs better with less.

I have been messing around with browsers on my Z under debian, and I have found that "Arora" (based on Qt4 + webkit) is very good.
Much faster to launch than firefox + support for javascript working.

You mean in pdaX? Or for the browser? Is QT even small enough to be in a base image?

I meant a QT4 option in pdaX. adding qt4 on top of a gtk interface would be kinda heavy. For all I know, QT4 would make a gui/environment that is too heavy for the Z, though

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.

- I subscribed, having an FC9 box I can dedicate to builds. I'm awaiting my e-mail in response to subscribing, and thinking it may have been caught by the spam filter. Now if I can just remember the URL to my web mail...

I too eagerly await PdaXrom v2. Would be willing to be a test pig.

Maybe if someone could create a build environment in a vmware appliance, it'd really help get people up and running!

Would people be interested if I threw up a test box which someone could SSH/VNC into and set up, and others could then login to build stuff? No guarantees, mind, but we've got a few old servers approaching retirement and I could stick vmware on, was going to create a cacko/damn-small-linux builder, so pda-ng could be done by someone else!
