Hi,

Its been a looonnnngg time.

I figured I might as well hack my zaurus for the time being.
I'm thinking of making a wireless NAS out of it for light File sharing.

So, I have no idea now how to install Angstorm.
I looks like Angstrom is the most up to date distro...am I wrong?
I had zubuntu, but did a nand flash and now have the Sharp Rom installed.

Do I still need a update.sh, zImage.bin and initrd.bin?
I found a link on Angstroms site to build a custom install, but I have no idea what to do with it.
I also can't get a build to work. I keep getting fails. I just wanted X-11 or Opie. SMB/NFS. If I keep a minicomputer, maybe a web browser of some sort.

I'm sorry this is noobish, but I haven't touched my zaurus in ages...I'm a noob again.

Thanks,
btanoue

Hi,

I have a C1000 that would make an excellent test/dev device for the Zaurus Community.
The LCD is pristine, no scratches or anything like that. I actually purchased this new in
Akihabra, Japan.

For Sale:

1 C1000 running zubuntu
1 Original AC/DC Power Adapter
1 Original box with all manuals and install CD (and its still shiny!)

I tried to find a good price but I can't find one on Ebay to compare.

Send me your offer.

Sincerely,
btanoue

Hello,

After using cacko on my C1000 for about 1 year, I decided to give OZ a try again. I have to admit that it has come to a really nice stable point.

Wireless works with my linksys CF card, and suspend and resume work fine as well. Rotation works as well as konqueror. Although in konqueror, I sometimes have to hit a link twice, but thats ok. It works.

The only pressing issue that I have is that I recently starting watching DL.TV (Video Tech Show, with Patrick Norton and crew about Technology) it comes in a few formats that can be downloaded and they have one for IPOD and PSP in a mp4 file.
There is also a .H264 and Divx file, but I figure those maybe to tough to decode on the processor for the zaurus.

Can OpieMediaPlayer 2 play this type of file?
If so, what decoder do I need to download?

Will mplayer play this and like OMP2 what decoder do I need to download?

I used to use kino (which was a wrapper gui for mplayer) does that work in the current OZ as well?

I like to use the gui with mplayer since using a PDA I tend to have the stylus in had more often the opening the keyboard and flipping between keyboard and thumb typing with the stylus could cause me to lose the stylus.

Help would be great.

Hi,

I was wondering if there are enough resources (people) available to create standard images for different window managers.

I feel that it would take a lot of work out of the end user's hand if for example a user can go to the pdaxrom website and have a choice of which window manager image he/she would like to install on top of pdaxrom.

For example, if I would like to try fluxbox, I could download the fluxbox tailored image, flash my Zaurus and have a complete already configured environment. The main benefit here is that a person that is completely knowledgeable about the window manager could make it easier for others to try. It can only expand the use of pdaxrom. Personally I don't necessarily know where all the configuration files for each window manager reside. So when I switch to XFCE, I have to do a lot to research on how to install it and configure it.

Tell me what you think?

Hi,

I have all my address data in Qtopia Desktop. I also have it in Kontact.

What is the best way and simplist to get it into my Cacko Address book?

In OZ I had to disable security and then qtopia found my Zaurus and I just synced it together.

Thanks,
btanoue
