Didn't find this here yet, but I didn't really search, so forgive me if this is a repeat post.  At best, this might renew some interest.

It's got everything we would need at a reasonable price AFAIK ; not much documentation however.  If anyone has done this already, maybe some links/notes/screenshots could be posted?

I haven't really seen any screenshots of Xorg running yet, but it's supposedly in one of the available ROM images. with matchbox/kdrive

EDIT:  gumstix was mentioned way back here over two years ago along with the coLibri module which has been upgraded now to the pxa320 @ 806MHz, but doesn't come with OpenEmbedded.

EDIT2:  mini-ITX is too big.  (saving to buy a robostix combo)

6000 - Tosa / Making Pdaxrom Work On Tosa
« on: April 13, 2007, 07:27:36 pm »
At present, most of us are working from these somewhat outdated directions:

Tutorial: Pdaxrom On Sl-6000

This thread is one of my attempts to try to bring the tosa up to par with the clamshells concerning pdaxrom.  As I see it, someone needs to use pdaxrom builder or some other method to build a newer image for tosa that can be loaded by the "u-boot" bootloader.

I'll try to add more notes as time passes.

For now, there are two more links of interest:

6000 - Tosa / Making Angstrom Work On Tosa

Trying to install from the following directions hasn't worked so far.

I don't recall the errors.  If I find time, I'll post them here, but ideally they'll be working soon.  The following link is where I downloaded the images from.

Trying to find a way to boot angstrom led me to the following page, which was simultaneously amusing, and frustrating, since as of yet, this issue is not resolved.

I'm assuming that we're currently working somewhere along the lines of this thread:

As of yet, I still haven't gotten Angstrom to boot.  Any help would be appreciated.

Zaurus - pdaXrom / Where Should New Packages Go?
« on: March 10, 2007, 12:28:17 pm »
I didn't want the "New Packages Thread" to become a discussion for this if possible... unless it's clear we're going to abandon it.

For me, the thread is serving it's purpose nicely.  I sometimes have troubles with the search function on this forum;  it occassionally fails for no apparent reason, so a single thread is a little cumbersome, but not that bad compared to searching.

Alternatively, the new pdaxrom site is up.  How far away are we from submitting packages to it?  What about the tyrannozaurus "everyone" feeds?  Any ideas?

Would people mind mentioning which release has been used when compiling - it's evident most r121 packages will not run in beta 3 so it will save us time and the forums bandwidth if we knew.

I am wondering if folks would not be better served by a standard post rather than a single thread. For example:

Subject: NPA: Debbie Does Zaurus

Package: ddz
Priority: optional
Section: Games
Maintainer: Debbie
Architecture: armv5tel
Version: 2.4.4-2
Depends: libbodyparts, libpositions, libunderwear, libcleaningsupplies
Package: ddz_2.4.4-2_armv5tel.ipk
Size: 4971788
MD5Sum: bf0efbf716cc6fc113912ecb2778971d
Description: Debbie Does Zaurus is a fun game in which a small town girl falls in love with a handheld device.

Then folks could discuss any issues with the package in that thread. You could search for them all with NPA: The NPA: posts could be placed in at least the appropriate folders for the ROMs they were built for. Just a thought. If we ever get any traffic at the new site, maybe that is the way we can do it there.

For what it's worth, everything I've compiled thus far runs on beta1 through rc179.  I haven't really had too big of a problem between beta1 and rc121+ yet.

Zaurus - pdaXrom / Does Anyone Use Beta3 With A 2.6 Kernel?
« on: February 12, 2007, 07:28:15 pm »
Does anyone use beta3 with a 2.6 kernel?

I've been looking over the build pages for pdaxii13


I haven't quite worked up to trying this yet, since I'm still trying to find out how to use the "endecsh" utility;

According to the second link, one should be able to flash any kernel via this method.  Of course, that may be potentially hazardous.

Has anyone done anything similar to this?  What would be some benefits and drawbacks to doing so?

Zaurus - pdaXrom / Do Packages For Beta3/beta1 Work In Rc121?
« on: February 12, 2007, 07:18:12 pm »
Do packages for beta3/beta1 work in rc121?  

If so, are there any caveats?  i.e. certain things don' work? etc?  Just curious about anyone's experiences with this.

Zaurus - pdaXrom / Rebuilding Xterm
« on: February 11, 2007, 04:12:53 pm »
Thank you very much meanie for rebuilding xterm.  I don't know why nobody else did this sooner, this solves a lot of problems for me personally.

I know why I didn't do it.  It's because it didn't work right away, and I'm too lazy apparently to figure out why.

I hate to look a gift horse in the mouth, but could you (or someone else) give a quick explanation to how you did this?  

(Even just a pointer in the right direction would help a lot.)

Open Embedded / Libgcc: How To Replace?
« on: February 10, 2007, 10:57:48 pm »
I didn't quite know where to post this info or ask for help, and this seemed like the best place to do so, so forgive me if this is off-topic.

I've successfully recompiled the gcc3.4.5 suite to include the g77 fortran compiler natively on pdaxrom.  I'm very new to building gcc from source, and it's a little overwhelming, so it took me several tries to configure to a point of semi-usability, wherein the "g77" command could actually produce object code (*.o).

I did this using the pdaxrom gcc3.4.5 cross compiler for x86.   However, it does not seem to work with the existing libgcc AFAIK, giving linker errors, and keeping  certain applications as "qpkg" from running until the compiler is un-installed.

Does anyone have any advice about rebuilding gcc for an existing platform such as pdaxrom?  I'm fairly aware that OpenZaurus already has this working, so it is not my intention to do so for that platform, I'm just trying to focus on pdaxrom.

My questions are:
* What purpose exactly does "libgcc" serve natively?  
* What effect does it have to replace the existing library?
* How can I replace the existing "libgcc" or link to it with the g77 compiler?
* Is there a simple way to get OE to do this for me?

Zaurus - pdaXrom / Fluxbox On Pdaxii13 Or Pdaxrom Beta3
« on: February 10, 2007, 06:02:48 pm »
I've tried a number of different versions of fluxbox including compiling the cvs version; albeit,  I did this with gcc 3.4.5 instead of gcc 3.4.6.

 The only one that's actually loaded at all seems to be "fluxbox_0.9.10_armv5tel"


It took maybe five to ten minutes to load, and it apparently won't load again.

I'm trying to run this on pdaxii13 build 5.3 for akita.   I've also tried using the "xsessions" program announced at the bottom of this page:

but that hasn't helped me so far.  

Any ideas?  Does anybody use this?  Any help would be appreciated.
