I recently cvs checked out and compiled e17. So far I can tell it's really fast and good looking.
That's the result so far:
(the background is a wallpaper only, it's pdaxrom b3 actually)
packages (required): http://z.drun.net/packages/e17/core/ - takes about 8mb space
development files (optional): http://z.drun.net/packages/e17/devel/
extra stuff (incomplete, mostly unfunctional): http://z.drun.net/packages/e17/extra/
my .xinitrc file: http://z.drun.net/packages/e17/.xinitrc.e17
libcurl is required: http://z.drun.net/packages/curl_7.16.2_armv5tel.ipk , maybe some other packages ( from http://z.drun.net/packages/ )
However, I'm having few troubles with it ...
1. I cannot add icons on the desktop - could not find how to do it.
2. In xterm I cannot type "0" - really weird, as I'm trying to load everything as in rox desktop.
3. How I can add applications to "All applications" ?
and few other things that aren't the way i want them ( for example - suspend - not working, hibernate - never tried it (i'm scared), shutdown - shut down the machine, pressed by accident, should be removed from the menu i guess)
Otherwise it's really FAST and pretty STABLE - didn't expirienced any major crashes except with the open file => "bookmark path" thing.
If anyone wants to try it - you're welcome. If you want to help me with the issues I had - anything is appreciated
