Anyone come across this yet? A Korean product. Looks interesting, though I don't think it's in production yet (to be released August 06 in Europe and USA??). It's supposed to run Linux or Windows CE.

Ok... this question has been asked a couple of times in other threads (including by me) but I haven't seen a response yet... On my C1000 I tried out RC12 with ROX and XFCE4 and found it absolutely GORGEOUS. I wanted to stay with it, but it seemed like my Fellowes Stowaway keyboard wouldn't work, and I really need it, so I switched to Cacko (which is great, but X is a real mini-laptop experience).

So, does anyone know if USB keyboards in general and the Fellowes kb in particular work under RC12? Am I just too st00pid to set it up right? blink.gif

Thanks in advance for your help!

Wondering if anyone can help out - I installed VLC from the rc12 7x0/860 feed, but I can't figure out if it has a GUI. I can only launch it from the command line (plus it doesn't work very well - frames dropped etc. - but that's a whole other question).

Does VLC have a graphical interface?

Hello all,

Just flashed my C1000 to RC12 after trying Cacko briefly (very nice, but still Sharp ROM). pdaX is great! Now I plan to set up XFCE4, Rox, Firefox, and all the other good stuff... but I have a few questions first

I'm not a Linux whiz, and there are certain fundamental things I still don't understand about the Linux filesystem. rolleyes.gif So I would be very grateful if someone could explain a few things to me about partitions. I have searched these forums but haven't found an answer that was entirely clear to me.


1) What is the actual difference between the "root partition" and the "user partition"?
2) I hear the root partition size can be increased to 121MB on the C1000 (why is 121 the max?) What is the advantage of doing this? Are there any disadvantages? Does this mean there is no user partition?
3) If I resize the root partition to 121, what else do I have to do (I've heard it might be necessary to edit /etc/fstab?)

Thanks in advance! smile.gif

Has anyone had this happen before:

I used the Add/Remove software app to install the Textmaker trial version. At the end of the install, I got a pop-up saying "ipkg said something went wrong. Sorry" (or words to that effect). Nonetheless, the package seems to have been installed -- there's an icon I can click on to run the app.

However, the system thinks the package isn't installed. I doesn't appear in the list of installed packages. (Thought the command line might be a bit more accurate so I typed "ipkg list" -- which produces absolutely nothing?? blink.gif ).

Now I don't know how to remove this package which my Z doesn't know is installed.... unsure.gif
