Although it is not finished, this looks like a very interesting project:
As it will allow to run some very nice games like Baldurs gate (1, 2, expansions), Icewind Dale and most of all, Planescape Torment on Linux!
Did anyone try to compile it for the Zaurus before?

When surfing a bit I found this article, which is pretty interesting and deals with the development of embedded linux applications.

Hello, I just got this beautiful black Zaurus but I have a few questions that could not find an answer to with search (but perhaps my search terms were the wrong ones, in that case a simple link to the proper thread would suffice). I hope this is the proper forum to ask my question in, if not then I apologise.

1) When I edit a (latex) file with vi, in the terminal app all my backslashes turn into a yen symbol, is there an easy way to fix this? I tried changing the font in the terminal app where I can choose between fixed, jisupasp, lcfont, micro and mmkjgx (with x a number) but that did not help either.

2) When I view pdf files with qpdf, everything goes fine except formulas. I assume that this is because I am missing some kind of font, is there a way to find out which font this is? How do I install this font and where can I get it from (I have a SuSE distribution on my normal computer so maybe it is somewhere on those CD's)?

3) I read on several places that the NAND memory in the Zaurus can only be written to a certain number of times. Because flash cards are exchangable I am storing all my documents and stuff I am editing on the SD card. But I am afraid some programs save their settings in my home dir automatically. So my question is if the sharp rom with these standard apps takes this into account or I have to copy and then symlink my homedir or something? Are there any other hard to find settings that I can adjust to prevent any writing to the NAND?

Some background on my installation: The Zaurus I have is the C-1000 with a 1Gb SD card, I use the standard Sharp rom still, with the modifications of the installation from Trisoft (who, by the way supplied a very nice manual!). I want to use my Zaurus mainly for writing and reading scientific articles, I have not installed Latex on it yet but found two links on these forums for a distribution (currently I edit the file then copy it to another computer to run latex over it). I plan to stay with the sharp rom for a while until I am comfortable with it and perhaps later switch over to OZ or pdaXrom.

Thank you in advance for answering any of these questions.
