I know plenty of people in the boards cross compile for pdaXrom. But I have yet to come across a cross compilation tutorial. Chero posted a very helpful native compilation tutorial which is what I have used to build my packages, but I really need a cross compilation howto in order to start producing better things. Compiling on board the Zaurus is just not too practical.

Thanks in advance,

I know this has been an ongoing problem for many people under pdaXrom, and I hope this fix will encourage some users to get back to using pdaXrom in their Zaurii.

The issue involved general unreliability with KOPI alarms due to failure to wake up the Zaurus before an alarm would take place. Additionally, I found a bug in one of the scripts which was preventing suspended alarms from being considered under certain conditions. This has been thoroughly tested under pdaXii13, and should work equally well with pdaXrom. As always, I advise you to perform a NAND backup before installing.

The hwclock script saves and retrieves the time in UTC format. In my testing, I have found that it is the only way to maintain consistent times across reboots. If your hardware clock was last set using a different time zone, the time will be wrong on your first resume after installing the package. It suffices to set the time via datentime.py again, and it should remain consistent after that. This is due to the fact that hwclock keeps time in a raw format without timezone information. The only requirement is consistency in specifying a time zone for interpretation of the raw value between writes and reads.

Without further ado, I'm attaching the packages. I include:
KDEPIM/PI (Not needed if your KDEPIM/PI version is already capable of playing sound alarms.)
kopi-apm (A revision which fixes the logic which was preventing suspended alarms from kicking in.)
atd (You need this if you don't already have atd installed.)
hwclock-atd (This modifies the /etc/apm/scripts.d/hwclock script to work with atd.)

Let me know if you have any questions!

is missing from the official pdaXii13v2 feed. If someone could post it I would appreciate it.

As a part of my setting up my fluxbox installation on pdaXi13, I'm doing little modifications to enhance functionality or solve small issues. Instead of posting them in my fluxbox thread, I'll post them here.

The first concerns the issue that takes place whenever you are watching a movie in mplayer and rotate the screen. This causes the screen to turn white, and requires a hard reset. I fixed this by making sure that rotation only takes place whenever mplayer is not running. Just add these three lines to the beginning of /usr/bin/rotate.sh
if [ "`pidof mplayer`" != "" ] || [ "`pidof mplayer2`" != "" ]; then
  exit 0

Now, whenever you are watching a movie in mplayer, you can swivel the screen without problems.

I seem to remember having the same issue in cacko. Maybe the screen rotate logic is shared. In this case, this modification should work equally well.

I was frustrated because of not being able to display embedded images in kchmviewer (I tried a couple of IPKs, 2.5 and 3.1.2, and it didn't work.) I was getting ready to compile my own, when I realized that there is a wrong setting in qtconfig which was preventing the images from being shown.

In qtconfig, go to Library Paths tab, and remove /usr/bin/qt/lib. Instead, add these two entries:

Now I can read CHM documents with their embedded images, and with the ability to set proper language and character encodings. smile.gif
