Zaurus - pdaXrom / x.11 rom, can it also run QT stuff.
« on: December 10, 2003, 03:43:57 pm »
That\'s what I thought.

I am a bit disapointed about the qt stuff. I have grown to love it after owning an sl5500.

I was hoping it would be like the debian thing that was released for the c700.

so the choice is x11 with loads of neat apps not availible with the standard zaurus, but would probably be bloated and slow as they were written for bigger/faster machines.


qt, lots of apps I know, small and compact and run fast on a 5500 so should scream along nicely, useable pims and syncing.

The killer app for me is gps, and I use qpegps all the time (qt based).

gpsdrive is a gtk2 app, could that be compiled for the x11 rom?
mind you it is dog slow on a pentium2 650.

I guess I could always keept the 5500 for gps/pims only. but then I would have to take two zauri (what is the plural of zaurus anyway?) to work with me.

Well I guess my pockets would be a bit emptier after buying the c860 so there may be room  :wink:

Thanks for that.

They don\'t do the 860 yet, but I am sure they will.

added to my bookmarks for when I get my bonus.

I am now almost certain I will get an 860, but have a few questions.

1) will the x11 rom appear for the c860, how long? (rough guess will do)

2) can I still run qt applications, I can re-compile them ok, but to re-write them all would take ages.

3) do the Hancom apps work?

4) do the sharp pims or replacements work?

5) I guess what I\'m trying to ask, is this :- is the x11 rom a total replacement to the sharp rom, or a bolt on, leaving the sharp rom there as well?

6) dare I mention syncing? ahh I said the word!!!

I will now have to go into the forest and cut down the largest tree with.....

A Herring!!!

Sorry, watched too much Monty Python I guess.

I can wait until Thursday.

I will be spending a lot of time away from my linux box, so that time could be spent coding and need not be wasted.

The old version seems to be missing a lot of required headers and will not compile my code.



You have just given me another reason to get a c7x0 zaurus.  If you get the gameboy advance working as well, then I will HAVE to buy one when my bonus arrives.

The only question then would be \"which one?\"


Freeciv was never completed!

I am not sure if it ever will be.

The guy porting it is converting it to qt which is very time consuming, but the original has an x version which may or may not compile with the sash x11 rom.

I don\'t have a c7x0 yet so I cannot try it.

Thanks for coming back so quickly.  

I have just checked the uploads and they are limited to 2mb.

I know a few people are after this, so it would be better to have it availible here, but offroadgeek would have to find a way of you sending it to him.

My email is limited to 10mb I think, so it should not be a problem for me to receive it, but it depends on if you have a limit.

I am on broadband and could upload it to anybody/anywhere else on request once I receive it.

I could set up an ftp server on my machine as a temporary measure for you to upload to me if you prefer.

I would give offroadgeek chance to respond before sending it to me.

I sent a PM with my email address in it
