Comes with several programs allready working wifi cacko rom with large SD card and CF card, also has doom working, and a working web server.

Please email me at put this all together: dan renfroe 20 16 (at) gmail.com

If no one wants it it goes on ebay...

I am now doing to project in part comparing Architectures and such. I have been using lots of benchmarks with different compiler options running i386, i686, AMD64 all using linux SUSE 10, when possible I have been replicating the test in Windows, (oh, and Linux is about 3-7% faster depending on Actual Bench run.)

It would be great if someone could compile this app for ARM so I could give it a go on my 5500. (it should come up with a horrible number with this Bench mark on ARM as this bench uses 64 bit Division.) As most of the benchmarks i have tried are really slow on the 5500, math is seriously slow on ARM.


more specifically this file: http://homepages.cwi.nl/~tromp/c4/Fhourstones.zip

with this command: gcc -O3 SearchGame.c

I have a Zaurus 5500 Running Crow rom with 64 meg ram option.

(note: dont try to run unless you have a swap file as this App requires about 64 MB RAM)

Oh for those that are interested:

Run on AMD64 3200+ 512 MB Ram SUSE 10 64 bit System (has 32 bit compatability)
Compiled using GCC 4.0.2
32 Bit Executable: 2778.6 Kpos/sec
64 Bit Executable: 5221.4 Kpos/sec
also running the 32bit on a 32 bit SUSE OS vs 32 bit on a 64 bit SUSE OS was no diffrent.

This is one of the only applications that I have tried that actually almost doubles performance when compiled as a 64 bit vs 32 Bit. The writer of the application said that the extra registers in the AMD64 chip can be used for the 64Bit division when compiled as 64 bit.

If someone could compile this and forword me the binary, I would be great. Thanks.

The old links do not work for me. Does someone have a copy or a good link?

ok, i know I am a few years behind the curve, but I finally got a 5500 from Ebay.

I am enjoying the new toy, and have observed the following (sorry for the palm comparisions):

ROM Version: 2.37 ???

The bad:
Can't find a console app in the menus, and I dont have the CD, or a cradle, just the charger. Battery life (as this is used) seams to be really, really bad. Hancom word is horrible by today's standard, cant seem to open large DOC files. PIM APPS seem kind of complicated. Its easy to tell why this thing didnt really take off for the average "PDA user"
Palm os vs stock sharp ROM is easy win for Palm when viewed as "PDA" only.

The Good:
Operates much faster than I was expecting. Multi tasking rocks! (Palm os 5, really, really needs multi tasking) Love the hidden keyboard, Like the SD and CF slot, and like that I can beam items from Z to my other palms and back. Like most of the other built in apps (except for Hancom). Opera looks cool (need to get a wifi card though to really try) and really like that it runs Linux!

I think i want to try this KO/PI you guys talk about so much, and flash with cacko/Crow rom that moves home to SD. And I want to try textmaker and VNC.

Offroadgeek, thanks for the great site. Also thanks to all the people that have put so much info up on this site! I am making a donation as I type.

I think I have a lot of Forum posts and writeups to read, and a lot of things to add/change biggrin.gif

I think i need to get a Clamshell model! smile.gif
