QtTV looks like it is a cool way to view up-to-date TV listings on a Sharp Zaurus (SL-5500 or others). You run XMLTV on your Windows or Linux pc and get a tv.xml file containing a few days worth of listings. You then are supposed to put the tv.xml file into /root/Documents on your Zaurus, to get the software to work.

The software homepage is here: http://qttv.sourceforge.net/

Problem 1: /root is not writeable on a standard 3.10 Sharp Rom SL-5500. Is there anything I can do about this (without major troubles)? I realise that / is a cramfs mounted as "ro". Maybe rewriting it as "rw" and then putting a symlink to /home/root/Documents ?

Problem 2: I noticed that the qttv_0.0.2_src.tar.bz2 file corrupts when I try to bunzip2 it. This makes it somewhat difficult for me to consider recompiling QtTV and choosing an alternative tv.xml location. Fortunately the qttv_0.0.1_src.tar.bz2 seems not to be broken.

Problem 3: I'm no expert on cross-compiling, and don't have a Zaurus development environment set up anywhere, so it is a major pain for me to recompile the qttv code anyway! It would be great if someone more experienced could maybe look at the code, and recompile it with a more suitable file location (e.g. /home/root/Documents/tv.xml ). Obviously,
the fixed application could then be re-released to the Zaurus community for us all to enjoy.

If anyone has suggestions, or can help with the recompile, then please reply to this post.

Steven Goacher.
