I already download the opera7.55 and trying to upgrade the SL6000 opera 7.25 to 7.55!

How many internal memory needed in the SL6000 and how to upgrade the opera7.25 to 7.55!

Thanks a lot

Is 7.55 built for the Zaurus 6000?

Yup, when downloading it says it's for the 5600 and 6000. (But works on other systems too, although it's more unstable)

I try to install the opera7.30 and work well!

But when I install the opera 7.55 it replys ipkg error!

What is the problem internal memory(I have 12 mb internal memory) or something wrong??

the multimodal ipk packs too much junk in it. Itself is about 5mb. The problem is before the installation the stock ipkg unpacks the package also in your internal memory. Take a look at your /home/QtPalmtop/etc/ipkg.conf. The line "dest tmpinst /home/tmp/ipkg/inst" is the guilty part. You'd better free up more space, then it will install fine.

if you want to get rid of the multimodal junk after installation (frees up about 2-3mb). Please change the .ipk to .tgz to see the locations of the junk by winzip.
I cleaned the following directories as well as some useless files like index, license, and etc.
/home/zaurus/.opera/apps/
/home/QtPalmtop/opera/voice/
/home/QtPalmtop/opera/start/

hope it helpss. btw, opera 7.55 works nicely on my 6K. Even I got konqueror and firefox running with debian, i still use opera frequently. The speed and page layout are super in most cases.

I've also got 7.55 working well on my 6000, and I like it better than v7.25 because it seems more stable and the rendering is tough to beat. It's a shame the multimodal takes up so much space because it's really pretty cool -- provided you don't mind being seen/heard talking in an authoritative voice to the electronic device in your hand. It's nice to surf without having to do much thumb typing.

Thanks xjqian!!


I have done it and it works well!

Thanks again!

Don't you miss the bigger toolbar from 7.25? I installed 7.55 and the little toolbar is just too small for my eyes. Don't know how to enlarge it!
BTW, how does one run the voice activated demos? I have not been able to do so.

I still have better than 20/20 so not yet!

Make sure you have the voice set up in the preferences section. The homepage that comes with it has the demo's, just click on one of them, pizze or chinese food menus, pretty cool. I deleted them so I can't really help you more than that.

I have to take my words back. The voice command seems not so crappy. In the voice setting, delete the "browser" so you don't have to say that word every time. everything else is default. Use your center of the D-pad or space to activate the voice mode.

say "voice commands" to get help. response time and voice recognition accuracy is better than acceptable.

some of my frequently used voice commands are

back
forward
page up
page down
show bookmarks
zoom in/out
...

btw, i just use a cell-phone headset.

Hello guys,

let's see if I can revive this thread... biggrin.gif

I just installed Opera 7.55 on my SL-6000 with original Sharp ROM. Everything works fine, although as expected it refused to be installed on CF or SD and I had to put it on the Internal Flash. No big deal, I can live with that, even though I was hoping I could install it on CF/SD so that for a while I could have both version 7.25 and 7.55 for comparison purposes.

At any rate, here are my questions for those with more experience than me:

1. I was expecting to end up with more or less the same space occupied on the Internal memory (7.55 installed should mean 7.25 removed, right?) I have instead about 3Mb MORE occupied compared to when I had the "stock" Opera 7.25. Is it because some of the old files have to be removed manually or rather is it Opera 7.55 just a bigger installation? Reading through this thread all the comments about the voice command function makes me thing it is just Opera 7.55 being bigger....

2. Is there any way to "trick" Opera (or any other program for that matter) into being installed on CF/SD even it would have to go on the internal memory? With Opera 7.55 installed I'm a little over 18Mb taken on the Internal memory, I'd like to keep it lighter if possible.

Thanks in advance for any suggestion.

In a previous post for OZ some one mentioned that 'Please note that this is for an SD-card install... and you should remove or edit the postinst for any other install destination.' in http://www.oesf.org/forums/index.php?showtopic=15885

I haven't try or attempt to modify the mentioned file, hack, i don't even know where is the posyinst.. blink.gif so, for all the 'remaining' experienced 6k user, can some one check if installation to SD is possible? also i have a copy of the extracted opera 7.55 without all the junk, ofcourse no voice command as well, let me know if anybody need it.

Thanks.
P/S: did someone notice that on sharp's site, it says re-launching the development project, i'm not sure, i saw that in the link in opera 7.55 home page, but got redirected right after that.

Edit: my bad, it says 2002, apparently the site has not been updated in decades.. i felt left out being a 6k user.. sad.gif

All these can be done manually. Delete or symbol link the voice command lib/binary. I've seen a trimmed down Opera7.55 ipk for sharp rom floating around, maybe in the software forum.

egg8178,

it would be great if you could post the de-junked Opera or point me to a web page with it. I'm definitely NOT going to use the voice command option.

Thanks in advance.

P.S.: I also removed libpdf from the plugin directory, another Meg of memory saved.... I actually moved it to a backup directory on my SD card, just in case.

Here you go, smile.gif glad can help, hope 6k will live longer with our own community support, it will be great if xjqian can show the info how to make the ipk installation to SD instead of memory, thanx in advance biggrin.gif

I "trick" my Zaurus into thinking applications are installed to internal memory by using symlinks.

Two ways to go. The first is to actually install to internal memory, then find the biggest files, move them to SD or CF card, then create a symlink from internal memory to the new location:

ln -s /new/path-to-file/YOURFILENAME /old/path/to/YOURFILE

The second way is harder, to unpack by hand on expansion card and create links to them from internal memory based on the paths shown when the ipk is unpacked. Example of this for a tiff viewer is at http://sdjf.esmartdesign.com/ipks/tiff.html
