Cxx0 General discussions / c860, initial questions.

the customize keyboard thing was really helpful - thanks.  have it installed and configured.

i saw the pdaXrom site.  first it looks like they\'re going for windows compatability/connectivity.  except for one windows box i use for testing (and access vnc - i tried kpebble-vnc but it crashes) i don\'t need that.  second from what i\'ve read, the x rom seems unstable, it doesn\'t support rotation, and the support for the c860 seems poor.

is that all wrong?  am i reading out of date stuff?

i get the idea that dev tools are better for the oz and pdaXrom distros then what i have at the moment.  so i\'d like to switch to one like that.  but i have nearly everything i need on it at the moment.  i still need to build a native compiler and a native mingw32 cross compiler, but other then that it\'s all good.  and a vnc client would be nice.

i\'d just hate to lose all that for something not as good.

ok, i got a c860 from

it comes with an english rom and the opie-embeddedkonsole console which works better then the standard one.  it has some shell scripts to move the fixed font in and out, but i just copied it in and left it.  i assume it affects hancom word or apps like that.  i\'m pretty much a console person - the netfront web browser being about the only useful gui app for me.

so with that in mind, i\'m curious about the following things:

how do i get a control key?  \"cancel\" is escape.  fn+shift+ < or > give me { or }.  and the arrow keys work fine (though the fact that they change orientation with the screen was kinda tricky).  can i remap those two japanese keys?

is there a decent, stable x11 system i(\"rom\"?) for the c860?  i tend to be an x bigot, and i miss things like xev and xmodmap.

native dev tools.  i snarfed the dev tools on, but i get invalid binary format when i run them.

is there a site that describes the boot steps for a zaurus?  i have a good feeling for the unix/linux boot process on x86 and sparc, i\'d like that feeling for this too.

thanks for any help.
