Full Version: Is Pdaxrom What I Need For Rfid Tools?

I want to use my Z to communicate with RFID tags. I have a 13.56Mhz reader (CF) it uses /dev/ttyS0 on a nomal linux box. Not sure how I will get that working on my Z...


I have pdaxrom flashed on my C700 now. However, I'm really keen on getting a chrooted debian environment if that's what I need? At this point I'm not sure so I'll ask the experts.

I need the following on my Z.

GTK 2
PERL
RUBY
PYTHON

Questions:
Would pocketworkstation work with PdaXrom?
Does Debian use the PdaXrom X server or run its on?
How will this run on the C700?

Final Question:
Am I going about this all wrong? Do I need to put debian on my C700 to achieve getting the packages above?

My goal is to use the PDA to develop RFID applications. I have an ACG reader (CF2) card and need the dev capabilities above.

CHeers!!!!

You don't need debian to get those packages - I have gtk, perl and python on my Z right now. I expect a Ruby package is available as well.
