I have a Targus usb Bluetooth adapter. When I plug it into Z (Akita), it is recognized, only after doing a "modprobe ohci-hcd".

dmesg reports:

But when I try to scan for devices, it says "inquiry failed". I have 2 devices waiting for a connection. Any clues?

After installing the Angstrom console image, how does one go about installing packages to enable xserver? I got to a point where X would try to start and then it says no screen found. I've searched everywhere and found no answer.

Thank you.

p.s. I know it's easier to install the X image, but I have a reason for wanting to install the base.

IceWM with SilverXP theme (some fonts and the "start" menu modified)
* get themes here: http://themes.freshmeat.net/browse/925/
extract the archive into your /usr/share/icewm/themes directory and then select the theme from the menu

IceWM has a low memory footprint and is reasonably fast (esp compared to other WMs on the Z)

The background image is set using icewmbg (started by icewm-session). XScreensaver is also enabled, and working. Here is an excerpt from my .xinitrc:

xhost +
sudo -u zaurus xscreensaver -verbose -nosplash&
icewm-session 2>/dev/null >/dev/null

in the ~/.icewm/prefoverride file, you can override the theme's background by adding this:

#  Desktop background image

The panel was manipulated by editing ~/.icewm/toolbar
I created a personalized launcher menu with:
menufile favs /usr/share/pixmaps/firefox.png favs

and created the file ~/.icewm/favs to hold the launcher items:
prog kopi /usr/share/pixmaps/date.png kopi
prog sylpheed /usr/share/pixmaps/sylpheed.png sylpheed
prog rox /usr/share/pixmaps/rox.png rox
prog leafpad /usr/share/pixmaps/leafpad.png leafpad
prog firefox /usr/share/pixmaps/firefox.png firefox
prog konq /mnt/card/usr/lib/kde/pics/konqueror.png konq
prog dillo /usr/share/pixmaps/dillo.png dillo
prog gaim /usr/share/pixmaps/gaim.png gaim
prog abiword /usr/share/pixmaps/abiword_48.png abiword
prog gqview /usr/share/pixmaps/gqview.png gqview
prog gftp /usr/share/pixmaps/gftp.png gftp
prog aterm /usr/share/pixmaps/gtkterm2.png aterm

The "start" menu can be customized by editing ~/.icewm/menu
I simplified mine by removing most of the menu items, leaving me with Programs and Settings:
# This is an example for IceWM's menu definition file.
# Place your variants in /etc/icewm or in $HOME/.icewm
# since modifications to this file will be discarded when you
# (re)install icewm.
#menuprog Gnome folder icewm-menu-gnome1 --list
#menuprog KDE folder icewm-menu-gnome --list
menufile Programs /usr/share/icewm/pixmaps/mbfolder.png programs
menufile Settings /usr/share/icewm/pixmaps/mbfolder_system.png Settings
#menufile Tool_bar folder toolbar

To change the "start" menu button, edit the image /usr/share/icewm/themes/[the them you are using]/icewm.xpm

The IceWM web site also has helpful info:

I would like to do some gtk development for GPE, but I'm having a difficult time finding languages/bindings that work. Python seems to be the predominant language with the most APIs for GPE development, but I would prefer to avoid Python.

I would specifically like to use the Ruby/GTK binding, but after a couple of tries, I have been unable to install it from source. I wonder if someone could package up some Ruby tools for GPE??
