So my quest for the Ultimate PDA continues. My 6000 got shipped with a mini USB port that wouldn't bend back to fit the USB cable in, so I'm returning it to amazon.com. My question is what should I go after next?

I loved the screen that the 6000 had. Unfortunately, because there aren't any good cases with a belt clip, I've had to use the plastic protector that comes with the PDA which is getting scratched and smuged now. I want to pay the same as my 6000 or less, have some great hardware, have accessories like a case with belt clip available, be able to sync with Linux via USB port, and use standards like pdf or text files and not Palm Database or anything like that. What would you recommend (it doesn't even have to be a Z)? I think on the Zaurus line, the C860 would be my choice, and I believe there's sync options for Linux too. I don't care for wireless/bluetooth or the USB host that the 6000 provided. I really like a nice screen, fast processor, and lots of memory. smile.gif Any suggestions?

I installed a screenshot utility recently. After playing around with it, I uninstalled it. The utility creates an image folder to store the screen captures and this folder is owned by root. I have a console app installed, but can't remove this folder as a normal user (naturally). However, I don't have the default root password to remove this directory. I tried "root" and a blank password, with no luck. I also tried running the console app as root, which works, but I'm still a normal user that can't delete the directory. Does anyone know the default root password for the Sharp ROM on the 6000 series? Thanks.

According to the Opie site, it will work with my SL-6000 with the Sharp rom. I'm not looking to replace Qtopia, just use Opie so I can sync with my linux machine using MultiSync. So I went to the SharpROM feed http://opie.handhelds.org/feed/stable/sharprom/ and downloaded every package there.

But they don't have an installation guide package! smile.gif All of the sites I've seen about installing Opie talks about compiling it from source, not using the packages. So I have all of these packages on my CF card, and don't know my root password (whatever the default one on the 6000 I guess). What next?

With the 6000 series being new, I've seen some posts here wondering when the Sharp ROM and kernel will be released. Maybe this is old news, but I was on the Zaurus Dev site and I came across this: http://www.zaurus.com/dev/tools/rom.htm which has the Sharp ROM version 1.x and the kernel source. I'm assuming this is what people have been looking for? And in my PDA I'm running Sharp ROM 1.12 so I guess I'm current?

After looking for a new PDA, it looks like the 6000 was the best fit for me. Being a Linux user, what could be better than a Linux PDA that syncs... with Windows??

Looking through the SL-6000 forums, it seems this PDA is a little TOO new. I want to sync my data and install some programs, but it looks like no one has written a newbie guide yet. So here I am with my Linux computer and my new Z. What next? How can I sync? How can I install new software? I have a 32MB SD card I can put in my card reader to move files back and forth. If I have my Z in the cradle hooked up via USB on my Linux machine, how can I surf the net on the Z?

The 6000 forums address specific issues, but I didn't see anything in the FAQ or pinned topics on more of a setup newbie guide, so I hope this turns into one. Any help would be appreciated. smile.gif
