Hey everyone.

I've been reading the OE Forums for a few weeks now and have been very impressed with all the great discussions. I am about to order my first Zaurus and have decided on the C1000. I assume at the moment I have no alternative ROM options as the C1000 is so new? The Open Zaurus web site does say it is compatible with all but one Zaurus although I imagine that was written before the C1000/C3000 was released. Now the C3000 source code has been released (is the C1000 source out?) has any progress been made? I am a CS student and would be happy to put some work in myself although I am very new the Zaurii and fairly new with linux....

Sorry to post if this is a silly question but i'm actually finding it hard to find a definitive answer.

Cheers,

Ben

C1000 source code is not out yet. I think OZ for C3000 is nearly completed, just a matter of some people owning the hardware doing some tests/polishing/fixes.

Cheers for the responce. Will it be trivial to get an Open Zaurus rom working for the C1000 when it's source code is released? (assuming the C3000 rom is completed.)

Well, if the code is compilable, and the kernel built from that code boots and does what is expected, then I'd say it will be fast, if the C3000 support is finished by then, as I expect the key maps to be equal.
I've already booted a opie initrd on top of the stock C1000 rom, and everything more or less worked, except for the special keys.
I just wish sharp would hurry with the kernel source...

So do I! Anything we can do to hurry them along?

If we can find a appropriate email address, we can pest them to release the source as specified by the GPL.

Seeing that there are now installation instructions for OpenZaurus on SL-C3000 (at http://openzaurus.org/wordpress/installation/sl-c3000/) am I correct in thinking that Sharp have made all the necessaries available and that this wee beastie is now fully supported?

And I've not been able to find anything about how I would revert to the original settings if I decide that OpenZaurus ain't for me. Is this possible?
