I actually found an old topic (https://www.oesf.org/forums/index.php?showt...=16246&hl=midp2) pointing to a MIDP2 implementation. The link doesn't work anymore.
I'm working on a cell phone game and it would be pretty useful if I could develop and/r test the application on my zaurus.
Does anyone know how to get it?
Thanks tongue.gif

I've compiled ngspice-rework17 for pdaxrom.
As far as I know the only requirement is the readline library (available at the stable
The package was compiled with xspice support and the included xgraph utility but
without cider support. I removed the example files and some docs in order to make the
package smaller. The most important doc files are in /usr/local/ng-spice-rework/share/docs.
If you want the example files or the complete set of READMEs, download the original source package (ng-spice-rework-17.tar.gz) from http://ngspice.sourceforge.net/.

The xspice codemodels are included in /usr/local/lib. The "spinit" script (/usr/local/ng-spice-rework/share/scripts) load this codemodel libraries whenever
you run ngspice. You can comment the lines in the script to modify this behavior.

The help files are in /usr/local/ng-spice-rework/share/helpdir so you can use nghelp without problems.

This is the first ipk package I build, so if you have any problem installing, post it here.
I hope you like it wink.gif

I tried everything... from the one on the unstable feed, to some user-compiled tiemu2, going trough a tiem3 compilation (by another user) even compiling it by myself and all trow different errors, mostly because of skins...
my binary worked but the "GUI" part of the skin isn't show, and the keyboard mapping is awful and useless, so I'm trying to see if the problem is related to the lack of libjpeg and I'm recompiling with it...
this sucks, if I can't have the HP49 calc running let me at least have ti89/92/v200 on my zaurus sad.gif
I'll keep trying.,...
anyone had success on running one of those emulators?

There are many wifi cards that require some tweaking to make them work as well as some cards that work right out of the box. In this forum there's lot of information about specific models, but it's distributed in different threads and different sections.

It would be nice if every user could share their experience with his/her wi-fi card. I mean, what card are you using? did it work out of the box? did you need to install another package? maybe needed some tweaking?
That could help someone with the same card or willing to buy a new one but is not sure about the compatibility with the current distribution.
Also for cards that work out of the box... I also found that is some outdated information in some threads. By instance, the Sandisk ConnectPlus (128MB) Card is said to work one_feature_at_a_time in most threads, but I saw in a config file (when I just installed pdaxrom if my memory doesn't fail) that it was bind to two modules, in a fashion much like:

bind "hostap_cs" to 0
bind "ide" to 1

Does that mean that with the default package it would work both functions at a time?
Any experience with wifi cards of any model is welcomed.
I'll post mine as soon as I get a wi-fi card in a better shape than my screwed-up dlink 660w that is not even recognized on wince devices some times (so I can't blame linux for not recognizing it, I need to make tests with a REAL and PROPERLY WORKING wifi card).

Ok, first above anything else, hello everybody n_n
If someone here already know me, he/she may know then that I'm not here for asking 34352452234 support questions and give no answers...
I'm here because I'm a developer who recently acquired a zaurus device and I would love to port and create software for this platform just as I did (and still do) for HPC devices....
pdaXrom is GREAT, specially for developers like me. Thanks for making such a great "distro".
However... let's get to the point...

I'm already developing some stuff on my zaurus like dockapps and some utilities that are needed on a jornada (under linux).
The problem is... that the zgcc provided by you compiles for the xscale processor.
Binaries made by zgcc on the zaurus are useless in any linux distro on a jornada 720 (StrongARM processor.... that's ARMv4 instruction set if the information I handle is right).
I tried some gcc switches in a couple of attempts on building for older ARM processors but all of them failed in some degree... always causing the typical illegal instruction error in the J720..

gcc has way too many options and flaws, settings and switches, environmental variables and ways to configure each step.

What are the proper switches, environmental settings, bells and whistles that I need to set-up in order to compile binaries compatibles with a Jornada 72x (or other ARMv4 device)????
Is it possible at all?
Any information on the matter will be appreciated.
Thanks for your time, your effort... and of course.... pdaXrom wink.gif
