Frustrated with the slow speed of any X11 app on my zaurus, I'm trying to set up a Japanese console environment. fbiterm appears to display Japanese text fine, except that it's portrait rather than landscape. This won't do. How do I rotate the frame buffer by 90 degrees so that it displays landscape?

I am trying to figure how to fix the titchy keymap. Titchy is wonderful in many ways, but I need to be able to right click with the mouse by holding the Fn key. I also want to map Fn+(1-0) to F1-F10. Also, the @ symbol above the - doesn't work with Fn. I can't figure out where the textfile to edit those is. I thought it was in /etc/console/boottime.kmap.gz, but comparing what is written in there and the output of xev makes me think that boottime.kmap.gz isn't where the current keymap is. xev gives way different keycodes. Can someone sort me out? What do I need to be editing?

I have questions about setting up pdaxii13 for compiling apps natively.

I am running into problems compiling the wmii window manager, which I mention in this thread:


I think part of the problem may be similar to that described in this thread:


I can compile some things, such as GNU screen (I couldn't get either of the two packages I found in feeds to work). However, wmii is failing because, as it was described to me, it can't find libc. I know the sources are good because I compiled them without trouble on two laptops.

The second link above talks about creating some symbolic links to various files. Could someone explain this in more detail than the above thread or point me to some more detailed documentation on how to do this?

I should add that I'm using zgcc-3.4.6.squashfs in /data mounted to /opt/native/arm/3.4.6-xscale-softvfp.

I'm trying to compile wmii on pdaxii13 (sl-c3200):


When I try make, I'm getting this error:

LD cmd/wmiir.o
/opt/native/arm/3.4.6-xscale-softvfp/lib/gcc/armv5tel-cakco-linux/3.4.6/../../../../armv5tel-cacko-linux/bin/ld: cannot find -lc
collect2: ld returned 1 exit status
make[1]: *** [wmiir.o] Error 1
make: *** [dall] Error 2

The source compiled fine on my Ubuntu machine. Any ideas? Have I failed to install some other package that I need?
