I have installed OZ/Opie and really like it as a whole. I like the PIM approach with much more. You guys are awesome for doing all of this. If I ever get a clue, I wouldn't mind helping out.

Basically, the main things that I want are good PIM software (which I have with it) and GAIM (Yahoo IM), Firefox or Opera, ssh capability, ftp, ability to play mp3s/wmv/avi/mpeg4 aka DIVx, games (mahjongg, yahtzee, suduko, chess, etc..), good text editor, spreadsheet viewer, wardriving software.

I have tried these ROMS: Sharp Qtopia, pdaXrom, OZ/gpe, OZ/opie

So far, I like the OZ/opie best for my needs.

My question is:

How do I update this distribution? I don't want to have to reinstall it all every time a new version comes out.

Plus, how do I find all of the programs that I want if I don't see them in the feed? I am connecting to the ewi feed.

Where can you find ipks for this distro and how can you roll your own from source?

I just got my Zaurus a month ago and have never really updated a ROM before. I have decided that pdaXrom is what I want.

Can someone tell me what the issues are when going from qtopia to pdaXrom?

If I do that, can I go back if I want to?

blink.gif Just worried that I will screw it up.

Please tell me if I should be careful about anything. I would hate to kill it.

Hi, I bought a C1000 and love it! The thought of having so many possibilities is great!

I know that you can put different ROMS on it and can install software.

I tried to take the source of a file and make an executible but I ran out of memory:( I was thinking that if I made my own software from the source files that it would work better.

Is there a way to get the C1000 to use the SD card as processing power?

Also, is there a list somewhere for ROMS and software for this device?

I would like to know how many ROMs will work on the C1000 and what the differences are..
