Full Version: Twin For My 5500?

Has anyone compiled Twin for OZ/Opie? Twin (http://twin.sourceforge.net/) is a curses-based text-mode windowing environment. I guess it would be fairly useless for a stand-alone Zaurus, but I occasionally use mine as an sshd server, and being able to ssh into my Z and run Twin on it would really be peachy-keen.

I see a package for it at http://www.tyrannozaurus.com/feed/beta3/feed/, but that's pdaXrom, and I can't get it to work on my 5500.

Never mind. I found it on the 3.5.4 feed. (I'm still using 3.5.3, since my Z crashes every time I try to upgrade.)

Got it installed. Now it fails with the following error message:

root@collie:/media/card/Documents/twin/usr# twin twin: autoprobing `--hw=gfx' display driver.
twin: starting display driver module `HW/hw_gfx'...
twin: ...module `HW/hw_gfx' successfully started.
twin: fatal: failed to load the window manager: /usr/lib/twin/modules/wm.so.0.4.6: undefined symbol: shm_quit

The library it fails on is one that came with it. Has anyone gotten this to work?
