Now that I have Fluxbox setup and running OK, I've been trying to install some programs with mixed results.
Have installed some programs OK, but some give me error message after trying to install:
Could not fork a new process (cannot allocate memory)
Is this a result of Zaurus having limited RAM or ?
Anything I can do about it?
With some programs, when I open them, I get error message:
assertion 'G_IS_OBJECT (object)' failed
Then some other error message that varies by program being opened.
Any ideas about this one?
Have tried running Firefox, but get error message:
XPCOMGlueLoad error for file /usr/lib/firefox/libxul.so:
Cannot open shared object file:
No such file or directory
Could not load XPCOM
I searched on this error and it was common a few years ago with Firefox. Some people said removing FF and reinstalling worked for them. Tried that, but same error.
Some said to install xulrunner, ia32-libs, and ia32-libs.gtk
Tried installing xulrunner, got the memory error noted above.
When I run xulrunner, I get following error message:
XPCOMGlueLoad error for file /usr/lib/xulrunner-41.0.2/libxul.so:
libcui18n.so.57: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
Couldn't load XPCOM.
Any input on any of these errors would be greatly appreciate.

Hopefully, some will see this post.....
After quite a while that OESF went down, it has been resurrected!
Enjoy your Zaurii!

Found what appears to be a nice little outliner app but having an issue getting it installed....
Maybe someone can advise....
App installation instructions can be found here:
When I do 'make' (from inside beeswax directory) I get:
beeswax build options:
CFLAGS = -Os -I, -I/usr/include -I/usr/include/libxml2 -DIVERSION="0.2.0"
LDFLAGS = -s -L/usr/lib -lxml2 -lz -ldl -lncurses -lreadline -luuid
CC = cc
In file included from main.c:22:0:
beeswax.h:20:28: fatal error: ncurses/curses.h: No such file or directory
Makefile:21: recipe for target 'main.o' failed
make: *** [main.o] Error 1
Per comment in instructions for installing on Mac OSX, I changed the line in 'beeswax.h' file to say 'ncurses' instead of 'ncursesw' as there is no 'ncursesw' available for ALARM that I can find either via pacman or packer.
Also, I set the development flags to be like this (taken from planetofidiots.com):
export CFLAGS="-mcpu=xscale -mtune=xscale -O2"
export CXXFLAGS="-mcpu=xscale -mtune=xscale -O2"
The 'fatal error' refers to 'ncurses/curses.h' not being found. In the beeswax directory I do not see a 'curses.h' file, but I do see a 'curses.c' file.

While I'd like to get TWM or Fluxbox or other light WM working on Arch/Zaurus, I thought in meantime it would be fun to have a thread with ideas for great console CLI or ncurses programs that you like to use and are available for Arch Linux ARM.....
So, here's a few to start things off with....
A very nice To Do List program with quite a few features to it....
< http://taskwarrior.org/ >
Simple I know, but works well for simple edits and for me very quick to use....
< http://www.nano-editor.org/ >
Calendar, Scheduling, Reminders program....
< http://calcurse.org/ >
What programs do you like using?

X and Window Manager
Just got X running and twm....
But like Dan, twm is opening up sideways.....need to rotate display 90 degrees....
Assumed I need to put something like:
xrandr -o right
in xinitrc file, but it still opens up sideways....
So, either there's more too it or need to put in different location or ........
Just tried fluxbox and it opens up sideways too.....
