I have a Moto V220 with a usb connection, I can connect it to my PC and can talk to it after compiling 'USB Modem (CDC ACM) support' to my kernel.

My question is where can I get / how to I compile the same module for my Zaurus (C1000 running cacko) and once I have said module, will I be able to either use my mobiles web connection or at the very least use it to call a dial up isp?

Seeing as Cacko for the C1000 seems no closer now than it was when I bought my Zaurus some months back, what is the best way to uninstall some of the default applications from the stock sharp rom? (with a view to freeing as much space as poss)

Is it possible yet to repartition my C1000 for a full 128mb root?

Have done quite a bit of C, but must be at least 10 years ago now (so long I might aswel be starting from scratch, so don't mind if I have to learn C++) and would like some pointers to getting started with development for the Z.

Something that covers setting up the tool chain right through to a "hello world" app would be very useful.

Workstation is Gentoo amd64, target is a stock rom C1000.

Having lived with pdaXrom for a couple of weeks (C1000), I have to say its by far my fav rom, but there are a few usability niggles that really get in the way.

As none of the software is designed with a pda tiny-screen environment in mind, most of it is unsuitable, either in terms of application layout or resource requirements.

I just kept finding that it was slow and fiddly. Now, ignoring the resource requirements issue (unlikely that I will ever be able to download a faster pda), the biggest problem is fiddly.

Not a problem when your sat down, but trying to read email (etc etc) on the move is virtually impossible.

I think a combination of forcing the WM to maximise all applications on start and reworking the layouts of key applications (especially dialogue boxes) so they at least fit on the screen, would have a massive impact on the usability of pdaXrom.

In many cases simple changes are all thats needed, dialogue boxes for example are usually larger than the screen forcing you to alt-mouse and move them around.

How much work would be involved in making (and maintaining) minor interface tweaks to a handfull of key applications? (I am thinking this could be done by members of the community as oppose to the pdaxrom team)
