Zaurus - pdaXrom / Wxpython Available?
« on: April 21, 2006, 06:07:34 pm »

has anybody already compiled wxpython or would be willing to do so?

Wxpython is the python binding for wxwindows, a very nice gui toolkit. For more information see or for some examples .



Zaurus - pdaXrom / Screen Compiled
« on: December 19, 2005, 02:52:23 pm »

I have compiled screen, it's a nice program to manage several shell sessions (and much more). The official page is under , a good howto can be found here:

As a quickstart, install screen, then run screen and you have a new session. Start a long running process like make or ping (or something else), then press CTRL + a and then d to detach the session. Now you can do something else, if you want to go back just start screen -R.

CTRL + a and then c starts another session in screen, CTRL + a and " lists all running sessions. It's very convinient to work with screen when you log in from remote from time to time and want to check the progress of your processes on your z.

I hope you like it.



P. S.: I have just seen that pgas has already provided this in his feed but maybe the quickstart is helpfull to somebody....

Zaurus - pdaXrom / Status Of Pdaxrom-wiki?
« on: December 28, 2004, 01:45:43 pm »

congratulations to rc8, another great release.

As with every new release, there are more users posting new tips and questions. It's good to have that knowledge available in the forum, but it's for sure not the best way to structure this kind of information.

A good solution for structuring that knowledge would be a wiki. I have read in the previous posts, that there is one planned for the pdaxrom-website, so what is the status of that?

I know that the current wiki at zug is closed because of vandalism, but modern wikis like mediawiki provide security features to keep your data save (, so an update of the wiki engine could solve that issue (needs only apache, php, mysql).

There are so many users contributing on this forum, so I think it's really necessary to have some kind of wiki. To avoid fragmentation, it should be on zug or pdaxrom, but if that's not possible in the short term I would also vote for an external solution.

Maybe you have already implemented a wiki, but if not please consider this opportunity. Personally, I would like to contribute both content and implementation, so if you have the webspace let's get it running :-)

With best regards,


Zaurus - pdaXrom / Is Mysql 4 Working Together With Python?
« on: December 12, 2004, 07:39:55 am »

does anybody know whether it is possible to use mysql4 together with the current version of python for rc5? If yes, where could you download the necessary python module?

In the unstable feed, there is a module for sqlite which is working ok but nothing for mysql, right?

Thanks for your answers in advance.

Zaurus - pdaXrom / Problem starting newly compiled snes9x with RC3
« on: September 10, 2004, 06:31:59 pm »

I am using the onboard compiler to compile some programs. The newvox-sample worked easily but now I want to compile snes9x and it doesn't work. I used the sources from (tried both 1.43 and 1.42), the compiler produces the snes9x binary but when I load a rom (under X) I only get a black screen and some information:

# snes9x ~/Documents/smk.smc

Rate: 22050, Buffer size: 2048, 16-bit: yes, Stereo: yes, Encoded: no
Found ROM file header (and ignored it).
"SUPER MARIO KART" [checksum ok] HiROM, 4Mbits, Type: ROM+RAM+BAT+DSP1, Mode: 21, TV: NTSC, S-RAM: 2KB, ROMId:  Company: 01 CRC32: CD80DB86
/dev/js0: No such file or directory

I tried it with different games and had always the same effect.

Does anybody have an idea or does anybody knows the last working version of snes9x?

If anybody wants the binary to try, I'll send it to you.



P. S.: The undefined symbol doesn't appear.

Zaurus - pdaXrom / Wrong fonts in opie-reader and pack. man. [1.1rc2]
« on: August 21, 2004, 04:32:40 pm »

after installing and removing several ipkgs (blackdown jre was the last) I noticed that the fonts in opie-reader and package manager are wrong. There are only the first 2 or 3 letters displayed and the fonts look bigger than before. Uninstalling and reinstalling opie-reader didn't help.

Any ideas or suggestions which config file to check?




I installed GAIM on my Cacko1.21 and overwrote my  with a patched one. Unfortunately, this breaks mysql :-(

Could someone post the orgininal so I can reanimate my mysql?

Thank you very much in advance.

Does anybody know whether these packages will still run on the pdaX Rom?
