I recently installed OZ (Hentges) on my Poodle.
Okay, so you're running Opie, that said I'll also suggest for GPE just in case,
- read and write MS Word docs (anyone gotten TextMaker or Handcom Word to work with OZ?)
I've not tried TextMaker but I have tried Hancom Word (at least to open it and write a bit of test), and it works. You need the older version which came with the 5500 2.xx ROMs, there are ipks floating around or you can use the packaging tools + romburst (which were on killefiz.de iirc) to rip an ipk from the OSPACK. Note you may need to make some changes to the control file in the ipk as OZ is stricter about what's allowed in there and its format.
For GPE there's Abiword and possibly others have been added since I last looked.
- read and write MS Excel docs (Hancom Sheet?)
Hancom Sheet doesn't work with OZ due to the move to soft-float - this means that calculations in Hancom Sheet are wrong. Not sure about the options within Opie (other than someone giving opie-sheet some love), but there's gnumeric for GPE (and this could also be run through XQt inside Opie).
- emacs? (tried installing "zaurus-emacs", had to make a bogus libncurse.so.4 by linking to .so.5. mec runs, but the display is not right under Konsole. any ideas?)
Is this in the feed? I seem to remember reading about it somewhere.
Not sure about outliners, I've never needed/used one. You can install python from the feed, then run mkcompat on Treeline and it should work (he says
