What's the plan, is there a plan?
speculatrix
doesn't seem to be, no mention of opie on angstrom site.

can't see why they can't just build qtopia4. OK, so it's not totally open, but hey, it beats having to write it all yourself, huh?

if qt(opia)4 were available in a stable form on Zaurus, then maybe just maybe Opera people could be persuaded to do a port?

Opera already runs in Qtopia 4, it's just not available.

Hey, Mr Potter, hope you're well, long time no see.

How would we go about making Opera available then? Are you permitted to reveal who has it running? My guess is that it's Nokia, a version for the N800.

Any chance of a qtopia4 ROM based on Angstrom.. or an IPK to run on top of the base angstrom-console variant?

thanks
Paul

Not sure if partner's stuff will get released.

I will work on getting qtopia 4 into oe. Right now it's just manually copying the Qtopia file system onto the machine.

that'd be great!


now, if you want to be a real miracle worker, just persuade Sharp to build all their proprietary applications against qtopia4 and we're all very happy. blink.gif

Hi, Potter. Since you are back, would you mind telling me how get a shell on a Mylo?
Thanks

Unfortunately, Sharp has given up on Linux, Zaurus and Qtopia.

Not real sure, I don't have one to even try.

lpotter! welcome back.
qtopia4 could be very interesting-- any hope for an updated opera? even one we have to pay for? the age of the browsers on the qt based roms is showing. ( I realize that Z is kinda inconsequential from a corporate perspective).

Drizzly and cool in Girdwood today, btw.

If sharp has quit, why doesn't TT get a partner, buy what needs to be bought and sell an updated version of the Z?-after checking the market. A better Z clamshell with phone/cell data capabilities and ongoing development might be marketable.
