Could somebody describe step-by-step how I can install and run Go Bible Java application (http://gobible.jolon.org/) on my 3100?

I have installed one of the Java environments following Minnie's instructions, and can run other Java applications that were made for Zaurus.

Does anybody know if I can use Cyrillica on an original Sharp Rom on c3100?

I installed this package:


However, when I type say in Russian, the text comes out in English.

You can call me a novice Linux user; however, it is not true because I have "used" Linux for about 5-6 years. I guess I will remain a "user" forever.

With my level in mind, could somebody describe step-by-step how to make an ipk package from the files that I already have on my Zaurus? For example, a dictionary for Zbedic or a font.

I understand that an ipk is just an archive with some control where to put files and a log what files and where have been installed. I've searched and could not find an easy tutorial on how to make those ipks.

First, I think this is great that things are progressing beyond ideas and discussions. Da Blitz and all of the involved, thank you so much for doing all this!

I cannot help you with any technical stuff but I am eagerly watching and am ready to spend the money to get the toy designed by your team. I am sure that there are others like me.

I don't want to take any of your time but could somebody who knows explain to non-techies how we will be able to obtain a device designed by you.

I've read that you are only working on the motherboard, and that we will be able to order the separate components from different companies (reasons: no distribution, no body design issues for Da Blitz, and no FTC approvals). This means, that somebody will have to design the body. Does this mean that I will separately order the motherboard, screen and the body (anything else?) and then will have to assemble it myself? How much expertise would be required for that? Will soldering be required?

Alternatively, Da Blitz may sell the design to some company that we will be dealing with. This company could be Sharp. If this does not work out, could somebody here help put these devices together for some profit for the rest of us?

So, basically, I would like to know whether those of us who have not progressed beyond mere users will be able to enjoy this fantastic (from the discussions it appears to be so) device at some point in the future. If any assembling is required, will mere mortals be able to put it all together?

If this is too early to talk about the end users, then I can wait.

Excerpt from an article on umpcorigami.com:

"The most remarkable thing that we discovered was that the engineers were using Linux on the device to test it out before Microsoft sends them a copy of the actual operating system that will run when it ships. The distrobution, which remains unknown to us proudly displays Tux on a touch sensitive screen at a minimum resolution of 800 x 480. Due to the small size, it won't feature a physical keyboard, but a virtual keyboard. The programmers working nearby told us that since they did not have the actual Microsoft OS on it; they had to "hack up" a lightweight Linux application to do the job of the virtual keyboard."
