Some additional questions:
Is the MD partitioning touched in some way by pdaxrom beta3?
That would make switching between Cacko and pdaxrom much harder, as not only a NAND backup / restore would be needed.
I dont believe it does... I use C1000...
But I could almost guarentee that it doesnt touch it... other then mounting it...
Can make pdaxrom use of the Sharp-default MD partitioning (i.e. the large /dev/hda3 vfat partition)?
And regarding software:
What ebook reader can you recommend? I'm currently using opie-reader which is very nice.
Well justreader works with some ebook formats... not pdf though... but that seems pretty good... sorry I dont read ebooks :-)
Do applicatoins compiled for RC11+ (i.e. in the RC11+ feed) work under beta3? That's the only feed I could find the latest KDEPIMPI (2.2.7) in, which I would need.
the majority of the apps in there will work... there are a given few has have problems... but I would give that package a 99.9999% chance of working.
Does the kopi-apm stuff work well now? I remember that in beta1 the Z didn't wake up on a KO/PI alarm, even though the kopi-apm package was installed and KO/PI was running.
I have no clue about this... I dont use PIM apps
Are the problems with PDF creation from Abiword solved now? I'd really like to create PDFs from text documents and spreadsheets.
I dont believe this works
How about printing? Does pdaXrom contain a full print spooling system? Any experiences with a Brother MFC210 USB printer / scanner / copier?
Printing is one of the things I missed much in Cacko and its applications!
Hmmm... I believe I heard about someone building the cups packages or something trying to get the current cups packages working.
I want to make the Z as much as possible a PC replacement, but it must still be a PDA, i.e. contain PIMs, wake up on alarms etc. I think pdaXrom is the best ROM for that goal, isn't it?
Yes, this is the reason why I'm sticking with pdaXrom... It gives me all the functionality (well just about all the functionality) of my full fledged pc... I think my Fedora Box is jealous.. :-)
