For Sale / Wanted / Wtb : Clamshell Zaurus
« on: April 19, 2011, 05:18:05 am »
All of mine are gathering dust (no they are not, they are safely stowed away) for years now, let me check which models I actually have left, from memory there's a 6000 (not clamshell), a 3000, and a 750 w/ expanded battery. Will fill out the details, when I'm home.

Salve, offenbar fehlen Dir die Schriften. Wenn ich mich richtig erinnere (mein Engagement mit Opie ist schon 4 Jahre her), sind das Pakete, wie qpf-qte, qpf-freemono, qpf-freeserif. Wenn Dein Opie schon ttf benutzt, dann eben ttf-dejavu. Wenn Du die wieder nachinstallierst und neu bootest, solltest Du (hoffentlich) wieder etwas Text sehen.

Viel Erfolg,

Interesting. That may allow porting my iPhone Retro Player Apps (SidPlayer Pro, Module Player, Pokey Player) to Android.

Ah, too bad. Of all choices, Android is the worst one as it's cannibalizing the Linux ecosystem. Then again, if you're happy with it...

Yeah, that's quite funny, especially considering that Open Embedded (as in the build system) has nothing to do with it. OE is now really an overloaded term

Indeed we all hope that Qi will produce more connected devices eventually... I for one can't wait for a decent free SmartPhone platform...

Angstrom & OpenZaurus / Newest Version Of Ångström?
« on: April 25, 2009, 06:55:36 am »
Hi Oliver, how are you? The recent Openmoko redundancies have left without funding, so we're currently looking for alternatives, but other than that everything is ok. I will write a book about Vala this summer and hopefully by the end of this year we have new funding and new hardware on the horizon... (always dreaming, you know)

Thankfully, there's more to OpenEmbedded than just Angstrom. You can tailor it to your liking.

General Discussion / Forget Android, Here Comes Azingo!

(sales-pitch) This is what tries to change. One middleware, multiple application layers on top.

In the age of Android, it's a tough job to work on something like that, but alas they're still enough believing in freedom here.

Hope all is well for you.

Hi Guylhem, hope you're covered from your terrible accidant! Congratulations on your Ph.D, Doc :-)

Yeah, it's fun with the SIMpad. Almost a year after I resigned from, some folks relaunched the site and joined OE to work on that. I'm glad to see that happening although I no longer have such a device.

The SIMpad was groundbreaking, ahead of its time. Alas, SIEMENS really screwed up marketing that.

All the best.

Angstrom & OpenZaurus / Mickey Lauer Stepped Down
« on: March 05, 2009, 10:42:15 am »
Hi Speculatrix, thanks for your kind words.

The background on this issue is twofold:

First, I had to realize that I did not have enough time to further contribute directly to Angstrom. Instead, I'm focusing more on getting the metadata in OE right for all kinds of distros -- e.g. the "minimal" one.

Second, I have some personal quarrels with the project leader which are no longer bearable, so I figured I might as well resign to keep my blood pressure under control.

I'm still pretty much around in the community. I work on OE, I work on middleware (kindly funded by Openmoko Inc.), and doing my share to bring Linux on all kinds of mobile devices forward.

Since moving more towards smartphones, my Zaurus models only gather dust, but you know, there's only so much hours per day. Still I think that what we do in the project, SHR-project, and last but not least OE, benefits also the Zaurus family.

Indeed. It was _really_ awful, but then again... some folks can do art with fewer pixels

General Discussion / Yoo Hoo........anyone Out There?

Still here, but not very frequently. All my Zaurus models are boxed so that they don't gather dust. Openmoko has kept me more busy than I have ever expected. Still doing lots of work on OpenEmbedded, which has become really huge.

Open Embedded / Oe With External Toolchain

You could make an OE recipe that grabs your libc from your toolchain and packages it up into an ipkg.

Zaurus - pdaXrom / Pdaxrom Activity

Their product refresh cycle is much more aggressive than SHARP and isn't the Nokia IT's rom open source, compared to the close sourced version of SHARP? (at least the kernel part of SHARP rom is closed source etc).

Unfortunately not. Nokia goes much further than SHARP, but they still have a bunch of binary only components in their firmware -- which is especially unpleasant for 3rd party distribution builders.
