Oh. Ok it seems there are the files that Sharp provided before on the Zaurus developer site. I have setup this cross compiler already. With some scripts, which I wrote for me, its usable but not really comfortable or easy to use.
Is there a newer version of Qtopia Free SDK? Because the SDK I use is incompatible to the gcc installed on newer SuSE distributions. I only see RPMs for SuSE 8.2 on your link and I'm not sure if SuSE 8.2 and 9.2/9.3 uses a compatible gcc at the moment.

Yes I know this. And I set up it last weekend for Collie. I would try it before but the harddsik of my old computer wasn't big enough.
Till now I compiled only the Nano package to test if it works and this works without problems. But really, Open Embedded is nice and a good tool to build a whole distribution. But for a application developer, I think, it is unecessary complicated. For this, only a cross compiler setup is needed that just works and is easy installable.
At the moement I'm in the process to choose a ROM for my Zaurus which I will use and for which I will develop/compile the next versions of my programs. I tend to Open Zaurus, because Sharp dropped support for users outside Japan and because I think Open Zaurus have some nice features. The only thing with Open Zaurus what really bothers me is the compatibility problem between Open Zaurus and Sharp ROMs with comercial apps (especially Jeode and Opera). Especially because the compat libs seems to have some problems in the newest Open Zaurus release.
As I now see on qtopia.net there is also Qtopia 2.1.2 ROM for the Zaurus. Maybe this would also be an option. Can I find more information about it anywhere? Is it fully compatible to the Sharp ROM?
