I bought an Akita a few months back and have been trying to find the perfect ROM. I finally got around to Cacko, and I find it's missing quite a few things. Perhaps it's my machine only, but it's missing a working networking wizard, man, locate, and any capability to install ipkg files. It does have HancomSheet and a working screen rotate capability, which pdaXrom is lacking, but I'm definitely going to go look at Opie again, because if I can't install programs I'm not going to run this ROM.
the networking control panel worked fine for me, but you need to have a card in it which is recognised as a network or modem.
the only weaknesses (aprt from wpa as previously noted) is that you can't have an ESSID with a space in it, so have to edit the wlan-ng.opts file (or better, hack the qtopia config files which generate the wlan-ng.opts
I think too it can be fun to set up GPRS with a gprs modem or bluetooth-to-cellphone setup, lots of backslashes to get the quotes working.
but, it did work.
and you can do "ipkg list | grep xyx" and "ipkg install xyx" etc, just make sure you have the right sourced in the ipkg config; there's a graphical tool as well if I remember.
I'm now on Angstrom so that I can use TomTom.... Angstrom's is usable by moderately experience linux users (as opposed to expert administrators) but not ready for n00bs.
