Someone started a similar thread, but what I am really trying to get at is of all the software out there, what is and isn't working for the SL-6000. I'll start this out.

- tkcExplorerC7xx
- kismit (with instructions from: http://www.zaurususergroup.com/modules.php...the%20SL-6000L)
- BlueZ drivers (works for Ambicom card, but not the Socket revG card)
- tkcEditorC7xx

Doesn't Work (at least for me)
kino2 (install, but will not play video)
qkonsole 9.3 (works, but not in vga mode)

Sorry folks I have busy for a few days since I posted that list of programs. I am very glad someone stepped in to post the feed links. When I am done with this post and some annoyance things like finishing paying this months bills I will check and see if the two feeds that I use are different and if so I will post them as well!

In answer to the first question, yes I installed everything possible to sdcard (1gb) and I have about one third of it filled. Out of the 25 NAND memory we all start with I now have about 15mb still empty. I did some elementary speed test to make sure but I discovered that there is NO appreciable speed difference between the onboard NAND memory and my Lexar 32x sdcard. Therefore it seemed best to load everything onto it that I possibly could. My IBM microdrive is actually faster writing so I keep wads, mpegs, a healthy swap partition etc. on it. This still allows me my 1gb cf lexar card in the expansion sleeve for lazy storage...MP3s and Scummvm game data etc.
By the way if you do not own a sleeve and do not mind a bit larger pda then I encourage everyone to get a sleeve ASAP... you will NOT regret doing it! Do not forget that sharp will no longer be making these and I am sure they will become quite rare very soon.
Going back to what I have installed, I actually got that list from the uninstall list in the add remove programs window as it appears on my 6000.
tkcVideo is the only program I ran into that I WANTED to run and could not. I am experimenting around with tkcKapital and trying to recreate the issue that was pointed out. If I find a workaround I will post it. That might nix Kapital from my list. I hope not. I LIKE that program.
I was not really trying to show off with my huge listing, I was trying to accomplish two things;

First was to demonstrate and settle once and for all that the 6000 did NOT suffer huge insurmountable incompatibilities concerning existing software. Further I was being honest about my knowledge level to show that even a determined newbie could easily do what I have done!
Second was to fill a niche that I had noticed that there was a lack of information concerning retail programs and compatibility as many ppl will not buy unless they KNOW it works. So go out there and buy these programs...There is some VERY good software in that list that is worth every penny invested. Support your Zaurus/Linux community and put your bucks behind your bark!

God Bless All,
