I've been using Torsmo on pdaxrom, it is nice and light and can draw to the root window. (I have had some problems using it with ROX' Pinboard)

Conky is a fork of the Torsmo system monitor (which is no longer being developed.) It is available for i386 in Debian, but not for ARM. Its page is:

Conky at Sourceforge

If someone could compile this for the Z, that would be great.

Just wondered if anyone has compiled a MUD client for the Z.

I've been trying to set up a network that I can access files on an iMac running OS 8.6. I've used Personal Web Sharing to set up a folder, and I have no trouble downloading files. (At this point I don't even care about uploading, though it would be nice.) The problem is that PWS auto compresses "large" files. I have managed to download a small GIF with no problems, but it seems that anything over about 1M (it may even be less than that) is considered "large."

This wouldn't be a problem if:

1. auto compression compression could be turned off,


2. macutils' last version was not from 1992(!),


3. the Linux version of StuffIt would run on a Zaurus.

Does anyone know if there is an app that will do #1?

Macutils runs on the Z, but cannot handle the BinHex 4.0, is there a more current version that I just can't find?

Does someone know if #3 is possible? I don't have a Linux box so I'm not too keen on buying it on the off chance it works.

(I know that OS X is better, but this isn't my computer and I don't want to upgrade the memory and buy OS X)

The Z in question is a C860 running pdaXrom RC9

When I create program.desktop files in /usr/share/applications for programs that don't have one, I get garbage/corrupted icons displayed on the desktop. This also occurs if I relocate programs that are installed in odd places. The program.png files are in /usr/share/pixmaps and everything, and if I open the icons in GIMP they look fine. The programs run fine from the desktop files I've created, and if I use icons that are already in use by other apps, they display fine. Am I missing something obvious here?

This is on a C860 running pdaXrom 1.0.5 with matchbox/openbox

I just installed Cacko 1.22 on my C860, and it won't install packages anymore. I get the Error message: "ipkg says something went wrong. Sorry" This occurs when I try to install to internal Flash. I had flashed the latest pdaXrom earlier, but it wasn't recognizing my CF card so I thought I'd try Cacko instead. (I'm a new Z user.) It still has a 50Mb partition from the pdaXrom flash if that makes a difference.
