The PDA-X-Rom Its truely something unique that only a linux based device is capable of delivering
My buddy with a HP PocketPC (Who knows which one, but its a newer one) is really jealous about the Zaurus, specifficaly the cool software and the keyboard.
It seems that after a long night, or some amount of hrs when I turn on my C1000, what ever app I was in is killed. The screen blinks a few times and then it comes back to matchbox. Bothersome yes...would I go back to opie no. I just wanted to know if others have seen this behavior.
Should I consider using ice or something else as a window manager? Will all my apps be there if I install ice or fluxbox or XFCE? How are the performance of these on my little Z? Are the applets available for said window managers.
KDE...How long does that take to run on a chroot Debian Zaurus?
It seems it takes about 30 seconds to load from my SD card. I was wondering if it was because I needed a faster SD card or is it that slow for everyone?
Come on..how long does that take to run? I haven't seen any hard numbers. If firefox takes 30 seconds, openoffice must take 10 mins, does it need a huge swap file?
I can compress 30 minuite cartoons to 128Megs, at 320x240 Xvid 4 and play them fine with vlc on the command line. Is there a gui for this? or perhaps a plugin for xmms?
I also see that many advanced users create some great packages. Perhaps there should be feed setup by the pda-x-rom team to let users upload good working packages like KA/PI so we all don't have to search for a download in the forum. I think many of you would agree that it would be great to just install znester for a user-contrib feed.
Please feel free to share your thoughts and answer any questions that I have posed.
Thats the great thing about the open-source community!
Thanks for your time,
