taskcoach is still at the alpha stage, so probably it won't be in the official feeds soon.

But xournal is already there. Super cool app indeed!

Don't bother, just for that. I agree that xournal is a nice app on the desktop. BTW, it is a scribble type app, presenting you with an apparent blank tablet of paper, which you write on with the mouse, or touchscreen pointer.

But on the Z ore at least on my Z, there are apparently a lot of extraneous signals that are viewed as pointer movement, so what you write is illegible.

I'd be very interested if someone else's experience was any better.

it seems to work ok on pdaX. maybe it should be recompiled natively for titchy?

writing notes in xournal is quite easy and readable. the stylus is super smooth and responds way better than say cellwriter. it probably is a problem with the 2.6 kernel rather than the Zaurus or xournal. the accuracy of the stylus is much better on the 2.4 kernel than on the 2.6 kernel as much as i have tested on my c3000 and c31000...

Hi,

anyone with a compilation environment setup already ?

I'd like to run "portabase" using debian. Somebody want to give it a try ?

Chero.
ZDevil
Portabase is a very old app. It depends on metakit, which is not found in etch or lenny, but sarge and sid. Perhaps someone will build this first?
ZDevil
Built metakit.
Now building portabase...

Any hint?

Hello,

I don't have a clue. sad.gif
Is metakit a lib ? -> try "ldconfig" and run "qmake" again (untar portabase again so you have a clean build-dir).
Did you patch metakit ?

I use portabase on a daily base to know the status of some jobs we have to finish at work, to know who is doing it, since when, when we should receive info, ... . I can also see when a job was completed or easily find something when they ask me about something I did 10 years ago. I also use it to find my way through documentation and articles in magazines. It has some nice filter possibilities. It may be old, but it does the job very nicely.

If you can come up with an alternative, I might want to try that one if I can import my data. My doc-database contains about 2500 records, the jobs-database about 3500 and I have another to use on the road when collecting data for use in GIS-apps.

Chero.
ZDevil
Sure, I will try again. The compilation instructions in INSTALL in the portabase are rather tricky, especially the bits about static libraries and headers.
I built from the latest source of Metakit, which I suppose to have the patch incorporated already.
I also made the portabase package for pdaXrom (beta3) long ago, but I already forgot what I did at that time ...

I am compiling, as we speak, lyx-1.5.2 on my zaurus. It is taking a while.... Like, days. But most component files are built now, and sometime soon it will all approach the final assembly. If it survives that, I will post it somehwere.

Lyx-1.4.4 which is on debian testing is good, but I really like 1.5.2 on my desktops, so want to have it on the Z.

Native compilation is a "bit" slow for a program of this size. It is a major bit of code, but really should not be this slow. I have gotten several compiler errors, which I suspect are caused by running out of memory. It seems to last better when I nohup the compilation and then log out, letting the machine alone to cook. It's doing that now, the harddrive light blinking away. I think I got the necessary packages to get configure to run two days ago, and it has been compiling fairly continuously since.

So, you guys who are compiling other programs, are you doing this natively on the Z, or cross-compiling?
ZDevil
@dlj0:
Do you use swap? For compilation the default size of titchy (~17x MB) is definitely not enough. When I was compiling portabase, the swap usage surged up to almost 190MB... That's why my C3200 now has a 512MB swap partition.
I've also run into internal compiler errors when compiling outside X with overclocking. Building inside X without overclocking works fine. But I don't know which is the cause.
But i've heard that not enough memory can also cause this.

Now I am doing compilation on a 4GB microdrive (ext2 format). I also added a 512MB swap partition on it. So after checking out all the dependencies, I plug in the microdrive, turn on the swap in it, and let the Z work. This way I can avoid the intensive writing on the internal CF, and also can freely share the microdrive between my C3200 and C860, both running Debian now. smile.gif

Great to see we now have an announcement thread and there are already some nice apps in it. rolleyes.gif smile.gif

I have about 170M of swap as a partition, mounted automatically. I added another swapfile, another 50meg, just to see if that would help. I am _still_ trying to compile lyx-1.5.2, and am about to give up. Fortunately I can export files from 1.5.2 to 1.4.*-readable ones. Also, frankly, lyx-1.4.* is faster than 1.5.2, but 1.5.2 is fancier.

But my crashes always occur before the swap is full, anyway. But they do occur when things are thrashing pretty badly.

I feel like the old days, when you had to exit X to compile anything. I have been not only killing the X server, I have pruned down the modules, daemons, and things like that (good idea in general) to just what I need/want, but still I can't get past one of the large object files. I even log out in order to free up cpu cycles and ram space for the compilation. Lyx is, now, a big program, so it is not such a reflection on the Z that I can't compile it, but .... It gets to about 70meg swap usage and segfaults. It is somewhat random, but this last object (LyX.o, one of the last!) has not managed to appear after several attempts.

I don't understand what you are saying about the microdrive. The internal hard disk is such a beast. Are you saying you have two of them?

Do you want to try your hand at compiliing lyx-1.5.2? You need qt4-dev installed, which installs a lot of, um, crap, which you can remove later. Try ./configure to see whether you have enough to make lyx. If so, please give it a shot. Like I said, I have been at this a week now.

I can't imagine compiling a kernel on this thing.
ZDevil
I will give it a try on my 860, but after finding out more about how Debian EABI works now.

That is strange. I never got that message. Wait. What is this apt-get build-dep? I got the sources for lyx from http://www.lyx.org, unpacked them, and ran ./configure. The first time, ./configure complained about missing moc and other things, installing libqt4-dev took care of that. I have no idea what build-dep is, or why that would help building lyx.

BTW, I woke up this morning to a completely built up version of lyx-1.5.2, which so far seems to work just fine. If someone wants it, I can create a tarball, but this installs into /usr/local to keep it separate from the distribution.
