I own a C700 with a 2gig SD card in it, and a Symbol wireless CF card that is pretty often in it.

I use OZ/Opie, and I usually always have the latest release candidate available.

No matter what, my C700 is always very slow and very unstable.
I cannot browse the web at all using the web browser, it is way too slow and eventually crashes.
I tried putting the SD in and creating a swap file, but it does not seem to help much.

The package manager also seems to hang all the time, especially when I try to install packages (to SD or not, does not seem to make a difference).

Is this common with the c700, because of a lack of ram maybe?
Or is it plausible that my unit is defective? If so, is there some application I can use to try and test the memory in the unit or something?

What should I try? I would love to use my Zaurus for work but right now I spend much more time rebooting it, then fscking the SD card because the Z crashed without unmounting it cleanly than using it..

Is there any money management/budget app in the latest OZ feed currently?
I read about qash, jabp etc but haven't had luck finding something in the feed...

Is there a safe way to remove all the Opie Base PIM since I use none of it..even better, is there a way to find a OZ/Opie with NOTHING installed other than the programs to change the settings ? No games, no apps, no PIM?

Or is there a master package I could remove that would remove all of that?

I have just installed many programs through ipkg... namely..


They do not appear in my menus, even after restarting opie..
Maybe my opie is not looking on the SD card for icons? The applications work..

So the setup is:

I have a SD card (2gig) in a c700. Had to put the latest rc of OZ to get the 2gig card working, works like a charm now!

Partition 1 = 64meg swap
Partition 2 = ext3, rest of the space, mounted in /media/card...

When I try to install a package in the package manager to a destiation I created and called "SD", pointing to /media/card, it downloads the package, installs it, but when trying to make the links, it fails, apparently because there is a double slash at the beginning of the path of the link..

Any idea ?

I haven't tried this in 3.5.4 as my 2gig card didn't seem to work...so I can't be 100% sure this is a release candidate bug, which is why I haven't posted in the main testing thread..
