I have managed to get both gpe and opie images of 3.5.4 running from the sd card as root using altboot.
I have again spent most of a weekend trying to get opie working well, and, well, I must be opie challenged. The package manger is worse than before, konqueror still doesn't install propertly and so far as I can see opie t is no better than the earlier version which, for me at least, was interesting but not useable for actual work.
Poking around in gpe, it is lookng more complete than before but I still have these issues:
1. Are other finding that the package manager crashes often with a message about the back end having failed?
2. Is dillo what people are using for a web browser?
3. I would like to install gpe-mail but it isn't in the stock feed.
4. I would like to install gpe-gaim but it isn't there either.
I have had a lot of fun with my collie in the year and a half that I have had it, but I am begining to think it will be obsolete before I figure out how to actually get it set up as a useable device.
