Zaurus - pdaXrom / latex

Well, no surprise I had limited success: zazz' TeX runs fine (once I remembered to unsetenv TEXINPUTS) and produces DVI files that look fine on my desktop machine.  But on the Z the included xdvi bombs with "illegal exception" and the included dvips gives bad postscript (GNU, ESP and Alladin gs all say "Error: /limitcheck in -file-").

So is anyone with a Kathrin SDK willing to give packaging up xdvi (or xdvik or advi) a shot?  You'd be helping out a poor Fortran coder who knows nothing of GUIs.   And if t helps, I'm about to send off a little donation to the pdaXrom guys.


p.s. For kicks I tried zazz's gs too, but it bombs with "Unrecoverable error: rangecheck in setscreen" even when given a known-good file.  I imagine this is either a kathrin-library-mismatch or a missing-font issue, but in any case I'm not even at a place to have .ps files to give it.

Wow, that's fast service... thanks Zazz, and Scott.  I'll let the forum know how it all works in Kathrin RC8.

Hi everyone,
this post made me happy, as pdaXrom does everything I need (really well too) except for displaying the DVI files that my tex installation produces.  The TeX installation I got from <> is happy, but the dvipdfm isn't.  And xpdf itself seems horribly broken in any case, and all other ROMs that have a dvi viewer seem to require libs that are incompatible with pdaXrom.

But the site Zazz listed seems to be permanently down!  Does anyone out there know where to get Zazz's, or any other, DVI viewer that'll work on pdaXrom?  A working dvi->ps + ghostscript toolchain would be a fine mechanism too.

thanks, and thanks for pdaXrom, it's great!

p.s. silly side question: how does one get a backquote character from the keyboard in pdaXrom?
