I thought I'd gauge the interest for the kind of app I'm working on. It's a word/kanji dictionary with quiz functions.

Basically, what I wanted to create was a "better wordtank", that is, a wordtank-like program but with the ability to create lists, quizzes, handwriting recognition etc.

How the program works can most easily be shown with a few screenshots which I put up at


The page is incoherent, look at the clock in the screenshots and you'll understand why. wink.gif

What I want with this post is to see if there's anyone else interested in using a program like this (which means I hurry up a little bit getting a releasable version finished) or not (which means that I continue to develop the program but without any input from other users which would be less fun)

Using libqte 2.3.2, Cacko rom on my SL-5500. The toolchain on my PC is the one from http://www.nautilus6.org/operation/zaurus.html

When (Qt Designer-generated) code in my program calls setSizePolicy for any widget, the program crashes. My program works when I comment out all the calls to the method in my project, but obviously that's not a good solution.

gdb doesn't help much, it just prints this:

Program received signal SIGSEGV, Segmentation fault.
Cannot access memory at address 0x0

Does anybody have a clue what's going on? wink.gif

Having browsed around this forum looking for hints and tried everything I can think of, I still can't get ScummVM (downloaded from http://chrisg.crispy-cow.de/zaurus OR the one from the official OZ feed) to work on my SL-5500 running OZ 3.5.1.

I'm using a freshly installed OZ with packages only from the OZ feed. ScummVM starts when using "-g normal", but the display is a mess. I can't make out the text in the UI but it does look like it isn't rotated like it should. I've tried creating '/tmp/qtembedded-zaurus/QtEmbedded-0.spec' with a few different values as suggested in a post on this site, but it doesn't make any difference.

Any help appreciated!

I would like to run a VNC server on my SL-5500, but I can't install the package at http://sdgsystems.com/download.html because I use Open Zaurus 3.5.1, and I can't find any package in the OZ feed.

Any hints would be great.

I want my Zaurus (OpenZaurus, latest version) to have access to the Internet using the following setup:

My Zaurus is connected via USB to a laptop, which is in turn connected to a PC acting as a gateway to the Internet. I can ping the Zaurus from the gateway PC, and vice versa. However, I can't do "route add default gw the_pc" - I get a "no route to host" error.



Laptop: (usb) and

Gateway PC: + connected to isp modem

route -n on the Zaurus gives:

Kernel IP routing table
Destination Gateway Genmask Flags Metric Ref Use Iface UGH 0 0 0 usbd0 U 0 0 0 usbd0

while route add default gw results in :

route: SIOC[ADD|DEL]RT: Network is unreachable

/proc/sys/net/ipv4/ip_forward on the laptop is set to 1.

Please not that I did get this to work once, however I can't recreate it - I don't remember the exact commands I issued on the Zaurus.

I would appreciate any help!
