C1000/3x00 General discussions / C3000 Os List Request
« on: April 22, 2005, 09:56:07 am »
The only Japanese I see is during bootup and in some of the service menus.
Did you run "reconv"?

Yep - that little gem of information is all over the place, and Dynamism did a great job with "reconv" considering how hard it must have been.  But... it's not complete.  The networking wizard and several other dialogues for the networking app were not converted - the wizard being the worst with none of the messages being readable.  Then there's the address book.  Sure, the characters are readable, but the tabs are still based on the japanese alpha - not english. Artifacts like that, though not prevalent, are strewn throughout the gui layer.

This is why I wanted to just dust the current installation and flash the whole thing with a clean english-compiled os - one that takes advantage of the 4GB harddrive and maybe has more support for standard Linux.

There is a lot of information in these forums, and a lot of really good stuff, but I'm hoping someone here can distill a little of it for me.  I just purchaced a c3000 after having a z5000 for a few years, and I'm finding myself wanting more.  More what you ask?  Well, what I'd like is to figure out which OS is the best for the c3000, whether I have to wait another month for it or not.  It just seems a little messy to have qtopia on there that's still got japanese code in it, no matter how well Dynamism did on the conversion.

I've seen OpenBSD, but I've had problems with porting stuff to that in the past.  I also saw that someone ported Windows 3.1 to the platform.  To that, I give a patented Jon Stewart "Whhhaaaaaaaaaaaa????".  Then there's OpenZaurus, which I think, from the docs, is actually Debian underneath, and somehow OpenEmbedded is what OpenZaurus is derived from?

I was actually hoping to find a disti that would make it easy to install or build standard stuff like Opera and Sun's JDK.  The front end could be qtopia, as it is well suited for the small screen, even if that screen is 640x480.  Front-ends, though, is where I get fuzzy.  What other options are there for the GUI?  Would it be possible to run a pared down version of KDE or GNOME?  I know mem is short, but with a 4GB harddrive....

It would be nice if there were a list somewhere of what the available options were without having to drill down hundreds of posts with search terms you're not even sure will pull up the info you want.

So can anyone help clear all this up for me, and anyone else diving into this amazing little machine?
