Realising this is a comunity effort so rather than having a winge that such and such app isnt available, I thought it might be an idea to see if we can get some people together to add to the zubuntu feeds.

I have no idea where to start but it sounds like some of the people in the forum do. So If anyone has some time to post up a howto then we might be able to get everything thats posible to package packaged and then we will all benefit.

I'm assuming we would need to either cross compile on a PC (gulp) or download source and compile on the Z (slow)

Comments / abuse / howto's welcome

PS one of the things that makes UBUNTU so usable is not so much that its any better than any other distro, its more that there is user friendly documentation everywhere you look.

Maybe a new oncoming Zubuntu release could help you out, since mplayer is available in the Jaunty and Karmic repositories.
In general, from the Jaunty version up (almost) all packages that are available for your (i386) desktop should work on the zaurus as well.
Of course don't try to run something like Evolution... it won't be any fun wink.gif

For the more zaurus specific packages we could start a new repository of course.

Cheers,
