Recently, I've been trying to resurrect old porting attempts. I bought a SL-C3100 and SL-6000L, and got hem set up with the most functional pdaXrom distros I could put together.
Now that I've started compiling a few packages, I'm noticing that a lot of recently developed code will not build due to outdated tools. The main culprit seems to be m4, but others like autoconf are giving trouble as well. Trying to build the latest m4 from source has all kinds of recursive dependencies, so bootstrapping is required if I want to pull this off on the Z.
I think the only alternative at this point is going to be to set up a cross compile toolchain targeted at pdaXrom but built using a recent version of Ubuntu, or some other Debian-based distro.

Is anyone interested in running the Arduino, Processing, or PureData IDE on Zaurus? This would be for pdaXrom installations.
There are a few obstacles to overcome with my development environment on the C3100, and these programs all rely on some Java functionality, which I've never worked with on Zaurus.
If anyone can point me to the most functional Java implementation on Z, it's one less thing for me to worry about.
Also handy would be an ipk of SVN. I'm currently trying to build one, but again, the obstacles...
If anyone want's to help, I'm going to devote most of today to getting this carried forward as much as possible, so drop me an e-mail if you want to help.

Before I dropped out of the Zaurus scene a few years ago, I was working on porting Daphne Emulator (think Dragon's Lair), Crimson Fields, and a few RPGs with little problem other than having to build ipks for dependencies first. I have picked up some of that old work, and now I'm finding that gawk is breaking the ./configure on code that used to build just fine.
I'm having the same problem on SL-6000L pdaXrom beta 1, and SL-C3100 pdaXii13
Has anyone else run across this? Have a solution?

I'm putting together a repository of pdaXrom ROMS and feeds, and not being previously familiar with newer versions (I only had a TOSA, but now I have a C3100 too), I'm a little confused by the version numbering on the newer ROMS for the C3xxx and other clamshell models.
I think it would be very useful to have a matrix of platforms/ROM versions/Service Packs listed on the repository to aid visitors in getting to the files they want, but I will need some help putting this together.
If any of you have input on this matter, please put your comments here, and I will organize the results.
Not in order, just listing as a staring point of what I am aware right now
pdaXrom prior to Beta 1?
pdaXrom 1.1.0 Beta 1 (TOSA only goes this high)
pdaXrom 1.1.0 Beta 2
pdaXrom 1.1.0 Beta 3
pdaXrom 1.1.0 Beta 4
pdaXrom 1.1.0 r197: SP 8,7,6,5 (not sure if this is pre-Beta 4)
pdaXrom 1.1.0 r198: SP8,7,6,5,4,3,2,1 (not sure if this is pre-Beta 4)
pdaXii13 (not sure if this is pre-Beta 4)
