Sorry for the dumb question, but I'm confused as to pdaxrom on the Zaurus platform. I've just purchased an SL-C3100 after a couple of years away from the Z - I had an Akita that I sold.
It seems pdaxrom continues, but is nothing to do with Zaurus. Could it be be brought back to the Z? Should it be brought back to the Z? Is anyone else interested?
It seems feeds are a little missing in action: anything we can do collectively to organise those?
Sorry for all the questions which can probably be found by 2 days searching, but after 2 days searching I'm now more confused than ever
Thanks in advance

Folks, I'm selling my SL-C1000. It's in great condition complete with box, a PDAir case which it's been in most of its life, and a USB charging cable.
Looking for £250 / offers to email@example.com. Please don't tell me how cheap you can get it from pricejapan.com for, just make an offer bearing in mind that this'll not cost you much in postage, and won't sting you for VAT.

Wow, this has really captured my imagination !
For me, the zaurus is too small for comfortable use, both in terms of screen and in terms of the keyboard.
Perhaps I'm too old, but for me the sweet spot of form factor usability vs portability is in the shape of the Psion Series 5, and the Sigmarion 3.
The psion's keyboard is great, the screen is adequate if a weird shape...
The sig3 runs an 800x480 screen with a very, very capable keyboard. If it ran Linux, well, it'd be *awesome*.
I'd love the screen real estate and keyboard size of the old devices with modern hardware. Am I alone in thinking that that is about the right form factor for such a device? We're not going for PDA replacement after all, but general purpose pervasive computing platform

I realise that pdaxrom is targeting experienced linux people as users, but unfortunately I am not one of 'em.
I've been struggling recently with a few things, such as library locations. If I choose to install something to /mnt/user using the package manager, the library will not be found after a reboot.
Changing /etc/ld.so.conf to add the path /mnt/user/usr/lib/ and then running ldconfig sorts this out.
Should this path be added to the baseline pdaxrom config?
Other things that would be useful would be a way of identifying where the space in the root partition has "gone" - knowing what are core OS files and what can be changed/removed would be good, as I find myself running out of space on / occasionally.
Is it possible to install man or info for pdaXrom? This would again help newbies such as myself...
I know these are newbie things, but it would help the learning curve.
