I naively thought it should be possible to use Abiword on the Zaurus to edit ODT files. Apparently it is not.

- Cacko only supports Abiword 2.0.0, which does not do ODT.

- Angstrom appears to have Abiword 2.4.5, but is unusable for non-expert users (just tried to install Angstrom on my C1000 this morning and failed miserably).

If anyone knows of any way to get Abiword/ODT working, do let me know.

- As far as I can tell from looking at the Cacko sites including Tyrannozaurus and Narod.ru, the only place you can download Cacko 1.23 for the SL-C1000 is now:


But the "standard" Cacko 1.23 on this site is only 1MB while the "lite" version is 19MB!! What is going on? mad.gif

- Also, can anyone help me find Abiword 2.2.8+ (ie. with ODT support) and necessary dependencies? Meanie's setup seems to be for 2.0.0. I found a PdaXrom version but it doesn't seem compatible with Cacko.

- Anyone who has a solid, current howto for kismet on stock Cacko, I'd be very grateful. I've searched the forums and found tons of people having trouble, and a few pointers, but no reliable looking solutions.

Thanks for any pointers!

I was just looking at this drive:


It's powered, so I'm wondering if there's any reason the Zaurus couldn't use it as an external drive.

Another question: some of these come with a car charger, and I thought that one might be compatible with the SL-C1000 until I realised it takes 2.5A (5V).

Does anyone know if a USB or car charger for the SL-C1000 is out anywhere yet, or has anyone got a different one to work with the Z?

I have a C1000 running stock Sharp ROM in English mode. Connected an iRiver USB mini-A cable and a Hawking HUF11 10/100 Ethernet-USB1.1 adaptor. I'm flying a little blind here, most of the information I've found talks about connecting a Zaurus to a Linux desktop, not directly to a network over a USB-Ethernet adaptor.

Any suggestions, anyone? It seems strange that the modules that came with the stock ROM are incompatible with the stock kernel. I can't tell if one of these modules ought to work with my USB-Ethernet card either.

Just got my SL-C1000 and can't seem to find a text editor with proper word wrap - they all (including ZEditor) wrap at character rather than word boundaries.

Hancom Mobile Word wraps text correctly, but has its own problems, it's the Japanese version and the menus are unusable.

Does anyone know if there are other text editors out there that wrap English text correctly?
