6000 - Tosa / Got my 6000L from Amazon - Some impressions
« on: April 04, 2004, 03:08:21 am »
Hey!!! The size is ideal. The OS is great and easily programmed. All docs are there.
It could be a great Workabout remplacement and the price is in the same level.

If someone need to deploy SL-6000 units in there enterprise or withing their commercial force, I\'m the one (4 years of experience in picking / bare codes, securised wireless connection, 5250/3270/telnet terminal emulation).

Just imagine what could acheive your commercials on the road with a SL-6000 in their hands. No paper, direct signature with the pen, easy management of the wall client database, easy remote synchronisation of the commerial database (orders, clients, ...) + remote agenda/contact management + files synchronisation + easy presentation on video projector. Be ready wherever you are with a litle device that can be carried easily.

Want to be as profesionnal as famous private transporter? Contact me!

Does the SL-6000 is ip54? \"Rugged\" and \"fall on flore from 1 meter\" let me think about this.
If so, it\'s very great for enterprise everyday use. Don\'t want to add a scanner to do picking?

Linux Issues / 2.6 kernel
« on: April 03, 2004, 01:07:50 pm »
Mandrake 9.2? The device id is not recognized. You need to had it in your linux configuration file. See faq on this web site.

First I introduce myself, I\'m the one that had organized the first Zaurus SL-C750 and SL-C760 group buy when they were released in June. I don\'t know if this intervention will be a flop and it doesn\'t matter if so. Perhaps I can influence the way our Zaurus is evolving (its OS, base system, PIM and other software). In any case, what I\'m sure is that it could completely change the face of Linux on PDA. :wink:

:idea: We need a strong reversal in the present PDA Community way of working. What is missing for all Sharp Zaurus, iPaq, Yopy, and other device running Linux is a well thought and organized effort. The goal that could be common to all of us is to build the next generation powerful and complete operating system for our beloved device. You should certainly already know that there\'s a lot of software, build systems, operating systems, rom/kernel images, cross-compilers... out there. All those solutions are growing slowly and in many different projects (with one developer to five). It\'s now time to propose a solution that could resolve this. And to go quickly to something very useful for everyone, the fusion of pdaXrom or OE with Debian ARM distribution is needed.

What do I mean with fusion? Here is an explanation:

PdaXrom team for example has define an emerging operating system. They already has proved with cacko rom and pdaXrom that they know how to deal with user needs and communication with the community is done easily and in both way. What should the community do now? We need:
   * to completely fusion pdaXrom libraries with those of Debian.
   * to leave only useful tools from Debian and replace most of them with busybox (as it is already in pdaXrom).
   * to add all dependencies in the base system packages (.ipk) to replace Debian ones (so apt-get or ipkg won\'t try to install something else when an .ipk is available). To split them if necessary.
   * to finish the package manager ipkg so it becomes completely stable and could manage correctly .deb files without needing apt-get and other tools.
   * Tell to all user whinning for a package: \"it\'s in Debian repository. If you want something smaller, just build an ipk and upload the source and the binary in our incoming directory\".
   * It could also be interesting to take the control of http://www.emdebian.org so Debian could begin to have a real voice in embedded market (other than \'extract deb files and do it manually\').

The selected building system team will need to:
_ refuse to open CVS write access to the base system for anyone other than those whose have proved their value (contribution, submitted patches...).
_ do things like they think they should do it (like any PC distro today) and use and include software built by other people from the net (I mean include for example Portabase without having to manage the construction but only to verify its easy compilation).
_ They need only to work on the base system and not on the wall thing (that shouldn\'t prevent them from building good tools).
_ listen to users but with a very strong reflection because most of them are simple Trolls here.


There\'s also some work for own great sites ZaurusUserGroup.org and www.killefiz.de/zaurus/ :

_ list tasks that need works and ask for package maintainers like on Debian. I\'m talking about the wall purged application ipkg set and not the base system. (ZaurusUserGroup.org)
_manage the default applications construction (PIM, ...) in the present community.zaurus mirror. (ZaurusUserGroup.org)
Note: Those default applications need to be defined.
_ manage, if they want to and if it\'s possible, some more open source projects (separated from default one).
_ list all available software, have screenshots, ... (www.killefiz.de/zaurus/)
_ zaurus forum, zaurus faq (to revamp), ... (ZaurusUserGroup.org).


That\'s it! Someone agree or disagree?  ZaurusUserGroup.org or www.killefiz.de web master?

Please, OE or pdaXrom team members, don\'t reply at one. I\'m sure that you like what you have done so far (as most of us).

Qt/Qtopia / Where can I find QTopia SDK which supprots XScale CPU?
« on: April 03, 2004, 12:37:02 pm »
What do you need to be able to compile Qtopia:

. qtopia 1.7 snapshot
. qt-embedded (2.3.7 or 2.3.8 snapshot)
. qt-2.3.2 if you want to test your application first on PC.
. a cross-compiler. The one you want. The one that will support XScale CPU like the one on handhelds.org.

Windows Issues / Synch to Office 2003
« on: April 03, 2004, 02:28:05 am »
Dump Outlook 2003 and Microsoft or dump your Zaurus? It\'s up to you.

You could also revert to the previous version of Outlook. Again, it\'s up to you.

It\'s very bad that again a MS compititor has problem with a MS new software. Shame, shame, shame on Sharp! They are so stupid to use Linux. They should produce Pocket PC device and use Active Sync to stay compatible with MS for ever.

Zaurus - pdaXrom / Port Requests Here:
« on: April 02, 2004, 11:58:53 am »
In my opinion, what should be simply done is a fusion with Debian ARM distribution. It\'s not the first time I say this and Sash will perhaps recognize me (IRC or Zaurus Forum...).

What I mean with this fusion:
- finish ipkg so it becomes completely stable and could manage correctly .deb files.
- add some libraries to be more Debian compatible and add package dependency so ipkg could completely replace Debian one by .ipk package.
- Tell to all user winning for a package: \"it\'s in Debian repository. If you want something smaller, just build it and upload the source and the binary in our incoming directory\".
- Take http://www.emdebian.org control so Debian could begin to have a real voice in embedded market other than \'extract files and do it by hands\'. Of course, only if they want to.

And the most important:
- refuse to open CVS write access to the base system for anyone other than those that have prouved their value during more than 6 months (6 months of contribution and submitted patches).
- do things like they think they should do it (like any PC distro today) and use/include software builded by other people and coming from other website. They need only to work on the base system and not on the wall thing (that shouldn\'t prevent them from building good tools or other thing, sure).
- listen to users but with a very strong reflexion because most of them are simple Trolls here (saying that it\'s a shame because there\'s no synchronisation with Outlook although the system just emerge and need to be fixed for exemple).
- list task that could need works and perhaps ask for maintainers like on Debian. I\'m talking about the wall purged application set and not the base system.

That\'s it! Someone desagree? I\'m already have an idea about whom.

Software / Wither Zaurus Development?
« on: April 02, 2004, 01:49:45 am »
- Sharp has closed most of its web site (forum, dev support, doc.zaurus.com...).
- There\'s always the fight plus incompatibility issue between Sharp ROM, Calcko ROM, pdaX11ROM, OE/OZ, tkROM, Familiar on iPaq, LinuxPy on Yopy, Gentoo, Debian/PocketWorkstation... Hybrid ROM and so on.
- Most people are happy with this wide rom choice list and don\'t care to much about incompatibility, PIM or synchronisation.
- Other people wanting a PDA + a mini laptop are realizing that there\'s not hope. In all this big choice list, only pdaXrom and OE can give us something... perhaps... someday...
- The GTK/X11 versus QT/X11 from PC is now  also on PDA with Opie/QTE versus Qtopia/QTE versus X11/GTK/GPE versus X11/GTK/LinuxPy...
- Linux on PDA is still only for advanced user. Sharp begin to have problem in selling their Sharp 6000 even in Japan. They are trying to minimize the impact selling them only on online shop and also in US.
- No plan. No cohesion. No leader. No evolution. No money. No future.
- Still no way to escape from Windows empire. Standard users are still waiting for the Messiah.

Sharp ROMs / Mandrake Linux on PDA
« on: April 01, 2004, 09:32:29 am »
<<

After the annonce of the future port of Lycoris Linux on most PDA based on Intel pxa processor, it\'s now  the turn of Mandrake Linux to annonce that they will provide an ARM version of their famous distribution. It\'s not the first attempt from the Mandrake company to enter the Linux ARM market as a distribution provider. They already have a great experience building Bastille Linux and OpenRouter, a project that aims to develop a high-performance and user-friendly router/firewall and wireless access point based on open hardware specifications and Open Source software.
