I have lost all of the english fonts in from my C3000. I stupidly deleted them
(relying on an rm -i interactive which didn't exist). Anyway, I want to find out
how to get them back. Could someone tgz their /hdd2/QtPalmtop/il8n/en/
directory and email it to me, or else let me know where I can download all
of the qmid files?

I have been installing all of my favorite software on my SL-C3000 and
I have run into a snag. When running make to install LaTeX it complained
that my version of gawk was broken and that I should install a newer
one. This I did. The problem is that hdd1, which contains /bin is a read
only filesystem and my new version of gawk is in /usr/local/bin
I changed my .bashrc file so that /usr/local/bin appears before /bin in
the PATH and so `which gawk' returns:
This is fine, but I don't think that `make' is seeing the new one since
I am still getting the same error. Is there any way that I can tell `make'
to use the newer one?

Something unrelated to my problem but that may be helpful to those of
you who are compiling things for your Zaurus SL-C3000 is that some of the
librarires in /lib don't have all of the necessary simbolic links. For example,
libdl.so.2 exists, but there is no libdl.so linking to it. So that when I
try to compile certain programs it doesn't find the library. I fixed this
by simply:
ln -s /lib/libdl.so.2 /usr/lib/libdl.so
and then ldconfig -v
So if you find errors saying that the compiler can't find certain functions
and you know that the correct libraries are there, it may be that there
isn't the proper simbolic links set up. The read only nature of the root
filesystem makes correcting these problems a little annoying.

And one last thing: The /tmp directory is, by default, way too small for
compiling large projects. It is only 1 mb and you will get errors saying
that the disk is full in the middle of compiling stuff. The fix that I use is
to bind an additional tmpfs to it with:

mount tmpfs /tmp -t tmpfs -o size=8m

to add an extra 8mb to the space.
