Yes, thank you Wildherb for the summery. smile.gif

Here's my short list, since I'm "still" a Linux newb and Angstrom is totally new to me. (I never tried OZ).
This information may not be totally correct. I have only used the default feeds that came with my "flavor" of Angstrom.
There are 2 "flavors" of Angstrom. Opie and GPE
Opie is somewhat similar to Sharp/Cacko. (This is just my opinion, I'm not an expert on this)
GPE is an X11 style setup. NOT the SAME, but similar to pdaxrom. (Again, this is just my opinion, I'm not an expert on this)

I don't have a SL-C1000.
I have Angstrom installed to the hard drive on a SL-C3100
I'm using "(x11-image) Like console-image but with X11 environment."
Quote from the AngstromManual - http://www.linuxtogo.org/gowiki/AngstromManual
The file I fetched is:
Angstrom-x11-image-glibc-ipk-2007.12-r13-spitz-installkit.tgz (For SL-C3x000 only)

1. Set up Networking using USB Wifi with an rt73 based card
USB Wifi may need a powered hub. The 2.6 kernels limit the output of the USB Host mode to only 150mA
(Only 2 out of 5 of my devices are within this spec.)
You may want to check into this.
I use a CF based Wifi card. "Ambicom WL1100C"

2. Wifi MUST support at least Managed and Monitor modes , with Monitor mode supporting packet injection
This goes over my head. I don't know.

3. install a good Web Browser
Opie has Konqueror. I'm running GPE/X11 flavor and only have 2 browsers so far.
gpe-mini-browser and midori. Waiting for the latest Dillo 2.0 to be added or compiled for current Angstrom kernel.

4. install LinNeighborhood
I don't know if this pkg is available.
It's not in the default feeds that were included with the version of Angstrom that I currently have setup.

5. install good EMail client
I'm using "Claws mail". It's in the feed. I haven't used it much yet though. It's similar to sylpheed.

6. install Aircrack-ng
I have no knowledge in this area, again, I don't know.

7. install Kismet
I haven't tried it yet. It's in the feed.

8. install Samba and support software
samba is in the feed. I haven't tried it either.

9. install GUI MP3 Player
Try Quasar. It's in the feed. smile.gif
It is availble for "almost" all Zaurus distros. I may be mistaken, but I think it IS available for all Z distros.
I have it installed on my Cacko partition of my C3100, and on my SL-C3200 running pdaxii13.
I don't know if you want to watch videos.
When I installed Quasar from the official Angstrom feed, ipkg also pulled down mplayer and it's dependencies.
This "may" make such an installation on your SL-C1000 a bit too space consuming.

EDIT: I almost forgot to mention this. Qusar didn't fit on the Zaurus screen when I first installed it.
Here's a post about making the fonts smaller, which causes Quasar to fit the screen.

10, install CUPS
I haven't tried, my printer is about 14 years old and only has a parallel port.

11. install MySQL Server
I don't know. I haven't tried.

quick note that Blue Lightning is doing some great work on porting the legacy QT apps to the new Angstrom OPIE interface).


First time through I missed this reference, so if this passed anyone else by (as it did me initially), here's more info

Thanks, that's a nice blog/page.
I may have to try opie someday, wish there was a blog like that for GPE
