Hello,

First of all, excuse my poor English as it's not my main language.

I would like to begin developing some software for my Zaurus (C760 and Cacko ROM). As I understood, Cacko's Rom is compatible with Sharp ROM, so I need the Official QTOPIA SDK (found here www.qtopia.net ). I would like to do it on a host computer running UBUNTU, so my questions are:

1) Do i need a toolchaing for cross compiling, or it's already included on qtopia sdk?
2) Does the QTOPIA SDK contain all the software I need to develop for the zaurus?
3) If I want to develop using SDL libraries for the Zaurus, what should i do?
4) Is there a way to test my software on my computer before copying it to the zaurus?


Thanks!

Yes, you will need an arm-linux-gcc 2.95 toolchain.

It contains headers and binaries for you to test on your desktop, and then link for the Sharp device.

Yes, you just run the Qvfb (Qt Virtual Frame Buffer) application, and run your app with the -qws argument.
