I love my Zaurus as a text file reader/editor, addressbook, and calendar... but I'm having trouble installing and running *any* other software on my SL-5500.
I download the file to my computer, and when I unstuff it the "ipk" file shows up as a folder. I copy it over to my Zaurus, and it is still a folder, and the "Install/Uninstall" program does not recognize it.
SOME programs unstuff as a file instead of a folder, and I am then able to install them.
BUT, 90% of those programs refuse to launch or crash immediately after launching. When I click on them they show the little activation lines around the application, and then they just hang.
I've about a dozen games listed at the zaurus software index, for instance... only "Dragon Bane 2" seems to run. I can't get a pacman or tetris clone or anything like that to work.
Humorously, the one application I got to work well was Ko/Pi organizer. Which is massive and very demanding compared to the silly games I'm trying.
Any help or suggestions would be helpful. My Zaurus 5500 has:
"Qtopia for Embedix Plus PDA, version 1.5.4"
"Linux Kernel Version 2.4.18-rmk7-pxa3-embedix"
"ROM Version: 3.10"
