Zaurus - pdaXrom / site update
« on: January 30, 2004, 11:22:04 am »
Hello all,

If anybody has been trying to grab my Zaurus port\'s (, ftp, email me,  or get me on IRC, my apologies.  To my utter surprise, one of the largest ISPs in Northern Indiana southern Canada filed bankruptcy.  While they gave us a week\'s notice before they were going to turn off everything, creditors showed up two days after their notice and started to collect unpaid hardware which really made a disaster of things.

To be honest, it turned my digital life upside down.  They hosted my DNS and a spare mail server (I have no idea how many emails I\'ve lost) among other things and well its not the week I had imagined.  :-)

Anyway, I believe I\'ve got things moved and up and running again and didn\'t want people to think another Zaurus site had just disappeared.

If you find a link doesn\'t work or you run into another problem drop me a line and I\'ll take a look,

Zaurus - pdaXrom / Emulators, libc, and more
« on: January 18, 2004, 01:02:34 am »
Hello all!

I\'ve been busy with my new 760 and compiling new emulators for it and the X11 ROM (which just rocks!).

I\'ve compiled all of VICE now for the 760 as well as some other emulators.  I\'m also trying to compile SheepShaver which is a PowerMAC (yes you read that right) emulator for Linux.  I did Basilisk II which runs great on the 760 -given the higher screen res- so I thought it would be cool to try SheepShaver since the latest version support other CPUs than x86.

Oh, and the new Amiga Emulator based on UAE.

I have two questions (dumb?) that I\'m hoping some folks could help with:

1.  I\'m not compiling on the Z so when the compile is done I can check whicih libs the exe is going to need with ldd.  Is there any handy command that would allow me to ldd the exe and then copy the libs that it needs to a certain directory?  

2.  Now, I\'ve only had my 760 a week so I\'m still in 5500 mode but I need a newer version of glibc (2.3 or higher).  I\'ve gone out and grabed glibc_2.3.2-1_arm.ipk but I\'m having problems installing it.

If I use ipkg install glibc_2.3.2-1_arm.ipk it gives me an error and suggests that I might need to update.

If I run Qpack its also unhappy with the file.

Is this because ipkg looks at ipkg.conf and wants to go online instead of just installing the ipk I\'ve specified?

Is there a better way to install this that I\'m just plain missing here?

Thanks for any help!

General Discussion / Service Menu Question in 7x0/8x0s

This  might have been asked before but I didn\'t see it when I was browsing the forums, but is it possible to convert the Service Menu/Boot Menu to English?  I mean I would be happy to do the work but I didn\'t know if you can \'flash\' that part of the Zaurus?


I just got my 760 today and sold my 5500 to a guy in LA.
