Hi all!

This is my first post and I am fairly new here (just got my Zaurus a few weeks ago) but I hope I'll do well.

I have downloaded the X/Qt jumbo package from chuckster's site and it installed without a single problem. I then tried to install Firefox on my FAT16-formatted SD card and that failed. Eventually, Package Manager hung so I decided to reboot. Everything, including X/Qt is working well now, but Firefox (expectedly) doesn't work.

Okay, so I wanted to try PocketWorkstation with OpenOffice, since it includes both Firefox and Thunderbird. But there's a problem: I can't download it. Whenever I try to download PocketWorkstation, it goes very slow (sometimes only 10KB/s) and suddenly, it stops. The temporary file Firefox/Safari creates when downloading disappears but I am left with a partial file – sometimes, I can download 24 or 25 MB (out of 94.5 MB), sometimes, I can get approximately 30 MB before it interrupts. I haven't tried to download OpenOffice so far. So I'd like to test OpenOffice, Firefox, Thunderbird and of course Debian on my Z (I'm so glad that X/Qt is working, thanks Meanie!) but I can't download it.

My question is: has everyone else experienced this (slow download speed, interrupting downloads) and got a hint for me to get the files down completely or am I just too stupid?

Sorry, this is a lot of text but I've been reading so many posts here that Debian etc. is so great on the Z and it drives me nuts that I can't test it! sad.gif

Sorry again for the English, it's not my mother tongue.

Thanks for reading
