Folks,

This appeared under PDAXROM

http://www.oesf.org/forums/index.php?showtopic=18105

It would be fantastic to get this to run under SHARP ROM on DOSBOX

I will give it a try and let you know...

Not a chance with the stock ROM. It works with dosbox tough, but do use a dosbox CVS build, --disable-fpu and prepare yourself for trouble with sound.
What's the point in keeping qtopia anyway ? pdaXrom runs so much better and has a virtually endless supply of software if you bother to compile.

It could be many reasons.

--does it sync the pim apps with a pc?
--can you beam addresses and files via irda?
--does the screen rotate when you turn the display around like the sharp rom does?
--does the music app (xmms??) function my pressing the side buttons/jog dial?
--does it have good japanese input support? (MOST IMPORTANT)
--does it basicly function like a normal PDA?
--can it run qtopia apps? (the sharp translator for example)

Note: I have never tried pdaxrom, partly because of the questions above. If they are in fact all or mostly "yes" then I want to try pdaxrom. biggrin.gif

I have tried pdaXRom. It was great as it allowed a vast software choice. Therefore, because of the screen size, it is unrealistic to actually "work" on it without getting an headache. Qtopia has bigger fonts, and apps are considering the small screen size. Also, Qtopia desktop is much more "keyboard" friendly for window navigation. I was about to go crazy trying to click on those tiny icons and drop-down menus. Of course, there's a way to enlarge fonts, but it didn't seemed sufficient. At the end I got stability issues and I just gave up and came back to Cacko (Qtopia).

I guess I will move back to pdaXRom when It'll be as easy to use as QTopia.

There's some folks that like tweaking and compiling, and there's some that just want things to work right away wink.gif

It does all of those things - give it a try! Not sure about the Japanese one, but i'm sure there is support...

well, you can scratch --does it have good japanese input support? (MOST IMPORTANT) and --does it basicly function like a normal PDA?
It will do everything you want, but certainly not out of the box.
Meanie
no, it will do everything you want except run the sharp translator/dictionary app.
you can use scim for chinese/japanese input. there even is a dedicated japanese feed for pdaxrom.
