Thinking of installing the Cacko rom having just installed pdaXii13. Reason for moving to a sharp rom is the need to run the following piece of software...

http://www.thekompany.com/embedded/tkcsoq/

I am currently using the Z as a tool to learn about Linux as a sort of introduction, a bit of a carrot since I like playing around with gadgets. But I have the following questions

1.Is there a comprehensive guide to installing Cacko on the 1000?
2.The author of 'tkcsoq' said that he only supports the Sharp rom, is this likely to work in cacko then since Cacko is a Sharp ROM?
3.Is cacko more like a pda rom than a linux installation (quite liked the pdaX implementation)
4.Will I be able to use 2Gb SD cards?
5.Is the Planex Wifi card compatible?
6.Will I still be able to run Linux commands found in a typical Linux installation from the CLI in cacko?

Sorry if some of the questions are silly but am still learning the ropes.


Many thanks for any help

I'd use C++. You can easily use it on the Z (at least with Debian/pdaXrom/Angstrom, I don't know about Cacko). Just download the ZGCC image, mount it, and off you go. The only other thing you need is a text editor (SciTE is nice, but a little slow, VIM is nice as well, but takes getting used to).

C++ is fairly straightforward IMO, so if you google around for tutorials, you can easily learn enough to code this app.

One of the reasons I had for moving to the Cacko rom was to be able to run a flash card program from the Kcompany, this didn't work out unfortunately due to the manual being in Japanese and there being little current support. But will be staying with the Cacko rom as its been a pleasure to use and does what i want for now at least until i know my way around Linux and am adventurous enough to try another ROM. Have gone and bought myself a cheap palm T3 which will allow me to use a good flash card study program I've used many times before. Currently making tentative steps to learning Java and am seriously tempted by Python which i am told is easier to get to grips with, and the fact that PyQt is the GUI of choice if you are using the Sharp ROM.

Thanks for everyones contribution and patience and further suggestions are always welcome smile.gif
