Hi,

I recently rediscovered my Zaurus C860 and I thought: let's put another ROM on it, because surfing with the standard Zaurus ROM is terrible, and since I need to do some hacking to get even MiniOpera to work, let's hack it decently now we're at it.

After looking around a bit, I found out OpenZaurus has been superceded by Angstrom. However, the Angstrom homepage hardly mentions the c7x0 series. On the downloads, there's only 2007.12 images for akita and poodle, not the c7x0. If I manually go to the unstable images directory (no link on the site), the c7x0 directory has a subdir for RC1 but it's empty.

I guess it's still in development ? I wouldn't mind testing it a bit. Or, is there a stable alternative that's fast and that supports X + most applications ?

There are automatically built images under http://www.angstrom-distribution.org/unsta...autobuild/c7x0/ .
Did not test those, so do not blame me!
