I stupidly tried to do an 'ipkg upgrade' on my SL-5500, running 3.5.4 GPE. It started giving errors about not having enough space(I should've thought about that first), so I ctrl-c'd out of it. It still boots, and seemingly still works, mostly anyway. The Text editor, and Image viewer(and presumably other stuff that came w/ the base GPE image) won't load, giving me the error

/usr/lib/gtk-2.0/2.4.0/loaders/libpixbufloader-png.so: cannot open shared object file: no such file or directory

is there an easy way to fix this? or do I need to re-flash? Can I reflash, and not lose data?

I've tried using sylpheed for e-mail, but the configuration boxes are too big, and I can't get anything to configure correctly.

I'm looking for an e-mail client that will read POP3, and an IRC client. I use XChat on my laptop, but that is seemingly not in the repos. Suggestions?

I'm trying to get X11 forwarding from my 5500 to my laptop working. I've followed all the steps I can find online, and it seems like it'd work, but apparently not. When i try to run sylpheed, I get the error
root@exiguitas:~# sylpheed

(process:1765): LibSylph-WARNING **: SSLv23 SSL_CTX_load_verify_locations failed.

(process:1765): LibSylph-WARNING **: TLSv1 SSL_CTX_load_verify_locations failed.

I installed a bunch of programs, firefox, thunderbird, gimp, gaim, and a couple of others. I tried using firefox, and the icons were too big, made it basically unusable, same for gimp and gaim. Is there any way to make the icons smaller? I'm running a 5500, so the resolutions not the best, but it works. Suggestions? If there isn't, do you have any alternatives? Like versions that were meant for the Z maybe?

I was trying to flash back from pdaxrom. Well, ok, initially I was going to try pdaxrom, from GPE. THat didn't work, I wasn't actually downloading the zimages(links were broken). So I tried to flash back to OZ. I accidentally pulled the battery, and now my Z won't flash at all. I've googled around, and searched this forum, and haven't really found anything. None of the lights turn on, it's not taking power(or the light isn't showing that it's taking power). Even after trying the flash process again, it doesn't do anything. Suggestions? I really don't want to have to buy another Z.
