Apparently one of the new programs that comes with the 3200 is an English Text-To-Speech program. I think that would be pretty fun to play around with, and I would think it would run on my 3100 if someone could figure out how to copy it. Is there an installer on the CD that comes with the 3200?

This project looks promising for fans of the Newton, like myself. I no longer have a Newton, so I can't get a Newton rom to try this emulator out, but I'm interested in how it works. I'm sure it's probably not at a really usable stage yet, but it would be really cool to be able to boot both the Mac OS and the Newton on my Zaurus!

I'm following Meanie's instructions and using his packages so that I can use XQT and a variety of applications. I want to use the following cramfs images:


However, when I run the xqt-install script, it will only work with the first two cramfs images (whatever they may be) and for the others it will say:

Warning: ambiguous entry for <image name> (this is also displayed for the images that work)
mount: Could not find a spare loop device

Sure enough, when I look in /dev there are only two loop devices. I notice that the xqt-install script is running mknod, which I assume is to create the additional loop devices necessary. When I try running one of the lines from the script (like "mknod /dev/loop2 b 7 2") I get the error "mknod: /dev/loop2: No space left on device". I'm not sure what this means. I do know that I have plenty of free space on the device, however.

Can anyone help me with this? Aside from the fact that I can only mount two of these images at once, these cramfs images have been working very well, and I'd love to be able to use them all at once. Note that I am still pretty much a linux newbie, so I may very well be overlooking something very basic.

One other possibly related issue is that the script says that automounter is not installed, even though I have definitely installed it.

Seems like a pretty good deal. I like how they're limited "20 to a customer." biggrin.gif

As I noted in this thread from a while ago, Basilisk II on the Zaurus works surprisingly well, except for the fact that the mouse pointer seems to "drag" all the time (at least I think that's what it's doing -- in any case, the mouse pointer cannot be used reliably). This is very frustrating, because the program seems to work very well otherwise, and would be genuinely useful for a lot of things if you could actually use the mouse.

Are there any developers who would be interested in taking a look at this? I'm not even sure if it's possible to fix this (whether the source code is available, etc) but I would like to make it clear that at least one person is (VERY) interested in having a usable version of Basilisk II for the Zaurus. I'd be willing to contribute $50 to a bounty to see that this is done. Not much, but it's a start. My only real requirements are that it work on the 3100 in its native resolution and that the mouse cursor allow normal operation of the Mac OS. Any ideas about this?
