I have these apps working 100% on cacko x11 rom:

1) Freecraft with warcraft tileset: I love this game. I think I cannot distribute this, but, ...
2) barrage-1.0.1: simple war game
3) lbreakout2-2.5beta-3: a very good arkanoid like game
4) lgeneral-1.1.1: Similar in concept to panzer general (strategy)
5) screen-4.0.1: The screen utility
6) libxslt-1.0.33: libxslt

Now I need how to make the IPKs with checkinstall but it always fails (it makes the ipk but there is nothing inside) (see my other post for detailed). I will happily contribute my ipk's once I solve this problem.

In between, I will continue compiling everything I can...

Ok. I downloaded ipkg-build.sh.

I want to make the cpio package, so I create the structure and the CONTROL/control in the "cpio" directory. Then I run:

ipkg-build.sh cpio

The result is: Packaged contents of cpio into ./cpio_2.5_arm.ipk

I have the IPK. But it seems that is incompatible with x11rom:

# ipkg install cpio_2.5_arm.ipk
tar: ./control.tar.gz: Not found in archive
And more errors.

If I untar an gunzip the ipk, control.tar.gz and data.tar.gz are there. I think ipkg-build.sh is using "tar" instead of "ar".

What do you use to make packages?

you should definitely use tar instead of ar for the x11 rom. ar works with OZ.

I haven't yet built a package from scratch, but I have taken an ipk that was built with ar, and repackaged it with tar.

catch me as "absentia" on irc.freenode.net #cacko / #zaurus

I'll give you an account on a relatively fast box of mine to upload to -- the other people
can wget down these (ie: zug, cacko, etc).

If you want to run ipkg-build.sh from the Zaurus itself it just requires modifying to not use the -z flag to tar and instead gzip the files seperately. Or install a newer tar on your Zaurus. I've modified the ipkg-build.sh and you can get it from:
