Hi, I have been reading good things about the Watapon rom, so I decided to give it a test, It looks great!

I have one snagg tho, and im not sure if its a problem with the distro or not.

I followed the steps, doing the flash from CF, then reset again and doing a format so I know i have the system installed correctly.

When ever i try to execute either the web browser or the email client (both located under the internet tab) i run out of memory and the system wants to shut down.

I run a SL-5600 with a PXA255 chip, which also brings me to the 2nd comment, does anyone know if Watapon is compatible with the PXA255 ?

Any help would be great as I really like this flash version.

Thanks

Mike

I have a 5600 with PXA-250 rev4. Email and Browser work fine for me.

Of course it is compatable with the px255. They are essentially the same!

Just use that memory applet to create a swap file on either your cf card or your sd card. Then your memory problems will be gone. smile.gif

Actually I don't think that was necessary for the email or browser to work - but it is a good idea. I do use a 32MB swap file to allow me to read very large MS DOC files with many images. I am rather impressed with its ability to read doc files and swap - MS windows tends to die when it needs to use a swap file.

I can also look at large image files taken with my Canon RebelXT - but it is SLOW. I am still looking for a faster image viewer - but in theory it is a tough problem because a jpg must be expanded and for the RebelXT that is a 24MB+ bitmap. (8.2MB * 3 colors).

I am guessing that he has some programs autoloading like the pim apps for example. Those ko/pi apps take up a LOT of memory.
