Hello,
I have qtopia 4.3 on the zaurus, and I want to recompile/install and try some applications, but I cannot found how-to install they on the qtopia. The package manager can download packages from internet only.
Is it possible to install the homebrew applications?

Thank you.
Alexandr.

I've only played with 4.3 on the Greenphone via the Greenphone SDK (from www.qtopia.net ). The SDK does allow you to install homebrew apps but it does so (if I understand what is going on correctly) by installing it into its own web server built into the SDK.
The SDK comes as a Vmware virtual machine so it may work for you, but it does seem to specifically recognise the greenphone.
Otherwise, it is probably reasonably easy to install your own web-server, depending on your experience. I have done it in the past without too much difficulty but it was in the distant past so the way I did it is way out of date so hopefully someone with some more up to date experience than my own can help.
Should you succeed, I have an Opie-Reader qpk and a VNCViewer qpk which were written for 4.3. They are for the phone edition but I doubt that I've used anything phone specific.

Thank you,
I don't have much experience with web (I am using Suse 10.3 on VMWare), but I think this is one possible way only.
I will try (when I have time for it).

Thank you.
