Hi there,

I've just installed the latest RC of OpenZaurus Opie on my Spitz (yay!)

Unfortunately, I'm having great difficulty finding packages for an FTP client so I can transfer files to/from my Z. I don't have an SD card (I borrowed on for installing the ROM), and I really want to be able to stop having to transfer files to my phone and then beam them over infra-red blink.gif

Am I going to have to set up an OE build chain and DIY? unsure.gif

Also looking for KDEPIM if anyone's got it...

Is it possible to alter the keymap on the Sharp ROM? I ask because I've just installed microemacs (having been totally unable to get full GNU Emacs built for the Z mad.gif ) and I can't work out how where the Alt/Meta key is.

Or am I on a hiding to nothing and it would be better to install OZ?

Hi there,

I just got my brand new Z from Japan -- yay! biggrin.gif

I'm having some problems with the absolute basics though. Basically, I haven't got *a clue* how to get started using with it -- all of the stuff that came with it is in Japanese. If I could get far enough to download and install mcconvert I'd be happy -- except I can't work out how even to do that.

Plugging my Z into my PC indicates that it's recognized as a USB disk, but according to Windows XP there aren't any valid volumes on it.

I really need an idiots guide to getting this thing up and running. sad.gif

Three questions I'd like to ask, if you'd bear with me. smile.gif

- has anybody successfully compiled a kernel.org kernel for the Zaurus? If not, what are the main obstructions to doing so?

- does anybody use Z + serial cable as a TTY for headless boxes (e.g. debugging rack servers)? How can this be done (C3000 doesn't seem to have a serial port)?

- does anybody know of an 802.11g card that can be persuaded to work with the C3000?

- (ooops, I've got a 4th blink.gif ) is there a guide anywhere to language conversion from scratch? If I buy a Z it'll be via a Japanese friend of mine, and I'll need to do the conversion myself.

Hope someone can help me out -- I'm seriously considering a C3000!

coi rodo.

I'm considering getting a Zaurus C3000 to take with me to university. The nice touchscreen and usable keyboard are quite attractive.

One thing that would be really quite important though is the ability to make notes and draw diagrams onto the Zaurus screen that get converted to vector graphics, e.g. PostScript, rather than being stored as bitmaps.

Does anyone have any idea if this is possible? Does it work well? Does anyone use this kind of functionality on a regular basis?

Any help would be very much appreciated.
