Hello! I've been trying to install OpenBSD current on my C3100, and I've been running into some confusion. I've installed OpenBSD a number of times on my laptop, and it's by far the operating system I'm most comfortable with and prefer - so I thought it would be rather simple to install it on the Zaurus.

The problem is, the installation instructions aren't incredibly clear, and I'm having difficulty following them. Perhaps I'm being stupid, but I can't seem to figure this out. I know I have to shrink the third partition, (perhaps to around 30 or 50 MB?), and then run newfs -t msdos /dev/rwd0k, but the instructions aren't incredibly clear. I try to e [edit] it, and type in a new size, then edit the last one to be of type OpenBSD, but it won't let me enter a large size, and then if I continue, more confusion erupts on the next screen.

Help would be greatly appreciated.

Is there a way to change the colour of the clock applet in RC12? The font's ok, I suppose, but I'd like to change it if possible. All I really need to do though is change the colour of the time to white, as the vast majority of my Zaurus themes are dark coloured.

I already checked the Matchbox website, but the best thing I could find there was:

4.2.3. mb-applet-clock

A simple clock.

Wonderfully helpful, isn't it? Anyways, does anybody know if this is possible? Many thanks in advance.

Are any black/dark coloured themes available? Are themes for any other GUI compatible with it? I wish it'd let me input my own colours, or use Gnome themes or something. Thanks in advance.

I'm using the stock Sharp ROM on my Zaurus C3100 (want to keep Japanese support), and I've done everything I can think of to get it working. I installed Tetsu's special kernel, Tetsu's kernel module package, bvdd_0.4.0-1_arm.ipk, mplayer-bvdd-iwmmxt_1.1.5-1_arm.ipk, kino2_0.4.3b_arm.ipk, and mplayer didn't work. Crashes with:

FATAL: Cannot initialize video driver.

FATAL: Could not initialize video filters (-vf) or video output (-vo).

I then installed libmad_0.15.0b-zports-0_arm.ipk and libSDL_1.2.6-zports-5_arm.ipk, and still no luck. Can anyone let me know if I'm missing any libraries? Wipe it clean and start from scratch? (Not a problem if I have to do that, just got it two days ago)

This is the second time I've attempted to get it working. The other time I followed the instructions here, substituting newer versions where applicable, along with Tetsu's kernel, and that worked out with the same error message. (I wiped the Z after that though and started from scratch for the second attempt)
