hi all .. i recently dug my sl5500 out of the closet and booted it up to find that the old OpenZaurus 3.1 setup i had on it wasn't gonna work without the pilfered SD card that used to be in it no more, so .. i'm looking for suggestions about what to boot on this happy little sl5500 now? i'd like to put it to use for interesting things .. okay, so its gotten a lot less attention since i got a few GP2X's around, but .. along those lines .. whats a good distro for the sl5500 right now?

anything with emu pkg's easy to install?

i've got a WLAN card for it too (old Sony Clie one) and it works, and i could put a 256 SD card in it .. any particular suggestions about how to set it up these days for 'easy/general use'? 64/0, /home on SD? is cacko the only decent image for doing this ...

Hi All,

I'm in the market for an SL6000, having had an SL5500 for a few months. If anyone has one for sale, or knows where to get one, please contact me privately; I'm very keen on getting another Zaurus, so please consider this a plea for the best price on an SL6000.

(I'd prefer the "W" version - with built-in WLAN and Bluetooth - but will take the L version [only WLAN] if thats all thats available..)

I've had my sl5500 for a few months now, and am really enjoying the overall hackability of this nice little personal portable computer ..

Though I have to admit, the ROM-selection scene means that I'm always fiddling with 'new ROMs' and not really settling on a stable, operational config for my needs. I guess I'm getting more out of hacking my sl5500 than I am just using it.

So I was wondering .. who has the PIMP'est sl5500 setup? I mean, what apps have you got, whats the slickest bit about your config, how stable is it, what do you use it for?

Anyone got any creative screenshots they want to share, something drool-inducing and green-tinge making? Done some private porting work that turns your sl5500 into the veritable "back door key" for hacking?

Lets see some screenshots, people! C'mon, all you PIMP sl5500 users! I wanna see the most-loaded sl5500 setups, I wanna drool at other peoples configs, I want screenshots that make me beg for a tarball! smile.gif

(I don't have any screenshots .. like I said, I'm always futzing around hacking my sl5500 with new ROM's and stuff, I never seem able to settle on a standard, stable config .. I've got an sl5500 with WLAN card, 512meg SD card, and 256Meg CF card, but I'll be damned if I can get it all working right..)

Its gotta be possible to build a better loadin that'll let me choose a zImage from CF, no?

Anyone know whats out there that we might use to solve this horrid image-update scene on the sl5500 front?

My company is considering making a bulk purchase of 3 C860's for the engineering group to replace their aging Psion's ... we're in Germany.

Where is the best place to get these in Europe, and does anyone know if there is a way to get a discount if we buy 3 of them at once?

Thanks for any advice you have on this ...
