User Request for Applications / Siag
« on: January 28, 2005, 09:00:20 pm »
Has anyone tried to compile siag offfice for openzaurus? It would certainly  make gpe (which already has the better web browsing options) more attractive.

6000 - Tosa / Expansion Port
« on: January 26, 2005, 01:37:52 pm »
I've had my 6k for about a month, just getting used to it, really. I have decided that the sharp "sled" isn't really something i'd use....However, there is that lovely connection slot for the "sled" just sitting there with no connections.
What can connect to it? Are there specs for pin-out to build cables to connect? what could be connected? or to make a different sort of sled, or other hack? car mount for power gpsand storage? or maybe a spare batt, 1.5" drive sled? with bluetooth?
 maybe just another 'backward ' cf slot?  
There seem to be real possibilities to be exploited here.... and I haven't found any discussion in this forum.

6000 - Tosa / Vanishing Touchscreen Drivers?
« on: December 30, 2004, 01:42:05 am »
My touchscreen drivers seem to just disappear after software lockups... sometimes--it has happened 3 times.  I haven't gone after repeatablilty--I am after a working zaurus.  The problem seems to be under sharprom with 3rd party apps....   It is strange. The thing works fine on OZ and after a reflash...
Just checking to see if itis only me.

Angstrom & OpenZaurus / X Forward On K-drive?
« on: December 22, 2004, 06:26:06 pm »
I read somewhere that kdrive will forward, just a matter of changing settins in the sshd conf.
Can anyone confirm?
Got a more specific how to?
Comments? suggestions? successes?
forwarding single applications is really nice on occasion...

Angstrom & OpenZaurus / Apt? Dpkg?
« on: December 16, 2004, 02:55:45 am »
DOes anyone use these on 3.5.2? how? with what configuration? what repositories? dselect and debian arm in the apt sources on a z with native x and gtk would be about the coolest thing I can imagine!  (barring kernel 2.6)  Is this the purpose?   anyone?

Angstrom & OpenZaurus / Openzaurus Multimedia
« on: December 09, 2004, 03:39:41 am »
Other than the 3.5.1 xmms hack how goes mulitmedia?

I have vlc firing up on pocket workstaion oz 3.5.2 kernel.--haven't tested actual media yet

OPie player loads but crashes rather than play media

xmms has not loadesd anything sucessfully, though that might be me.
I have heard that it xmms/mplayer does badly with video

what about totem? didn't see it in the gpe feeds....  why not spruce up mplayer and make a gtk gui be the gpe player as well? it is good stuff, and having a single media core (mplyer )setup would surely reduce the effort of doing all this...

 and frodo and uae??? what's the deal there? they just die... and uae wants conmpatlibs it looks like...

Angstrom & OpenZaurus / Debian Arm Packages
« on: November 30, 2004, 11:51:42 am »
Been toying with pocket workstation and opie. Apparently there is a way to compile opie to use vnc as a graphics backend--eliminating the need for at least a vnc viewer to run debian.
Shouldn't there be a way to use kdrive to handle display of the pocket workstation stuff maybe replacing some of the pocketworkstation x stuff? Would it then be (kind of ) integrable to gpe?
Is there some other way to use the debian arm packages in oz?  (without an incredible amount of pain and suffering per package?) I am sure i will hear that it can all be built uzing oe, and i am working on that too. But the existence of this giant repository of stuff that will run on the z makes me think it it could accessed more effectively.


Angstrom & OpenZaurus / vncserver
« on: November 10, 2004, 11:51:34 pm »
The best I have managed to do is to take the fbvncserver ipk from pocketworkstation, and use compatlibs on it.
It is beautiful. BUT it seems to insist on a view-only mode.
Better solutions would be much appreciated.

Angstrom & OpenZaurus / gpe software installation
« on: September 28, 2004, 08:49:28 pm »
I am trying to stick with gpe as it grows- 3.5.1 gpe seems like potentially the best thing possible on the z-,
but as it stands today, I  am having problems installing some stuff -
: firefox

Mediaplay and a webbrowser that does ssl are important.

Working: minimo, dillo (if only we had the ssl version!!!!!--hint hint) fire manafger, all th card control stuff.

Any one know how to do X for4warding on kdrive?
