My Sharp Zaurus SL-5600 (a.k.a. "Poodle") is for sale. It's in good condition and fully functional.

It comes with several accessories:
1. Peak CF 512 Mb
2. Sandisk SD 64 Mb
3. Senao CF 802.11b Wifi card
4. Destinator CF GPS receiver + external antenna
5. CE-ST9 USB cradle
6. CE-170TS serial cable
7. Piel Frama luxurious leather PDA-case with the colors Black/Tan
8. Trust PW-2992p 2800 mAh external battery

I'm asking €100 or the best offer.

I use zbedic a lot on my zaurus. But the latest package in the feeds is zbedic_20041227-r1. Since then, there have been a few updates. The latest release is version 0.9.6 from 2005-06-23 which has quite a few enhancements.
I hope someone with acces to the feeds reads this post and will update the package.

For about a year I own a zaurus sl-5600. Until now, I have been carrying around my zaurus without a case in my pocket. Only the screen is protected with a plastic cover. The buttons stay uncovered, so the device is switched on and off and starting applications by accident all day, draining the battery. I recently found that Piel Frama made a leather case for the 5500. That case would prove very useful for my zaurus sl-5600. But I wonder if the case fits the 5600, despite the bigger battery.

Someone tried it yet?

I use opie-reader a lot with pages I retrieve from the internet using Plucker for linux from www.plkr.org. This all works fine, and I'm very content with it. The only thing is that all links get striked through after clicking on them in opie-reader (or maybe they get underlined, but seem strikedthrough). These links aren't dead ones, btw. The links continue to work, so it's annoying at worst. Does anyone else experience the same odd behavior and, better, does anyone know how to prevent it?

As many already noticed, usbnet for zaurus was broken since kernel 2.6.11.
Good news: it now works again in 2.6.12-rc5.
I also applied the usbnet_zaurus.patch from David Brownell he submitted 3 june in the fa.linux.kernel newsgroup, which I don't know was necessary since I own the zaurus sl-5600, not sl-6000.
Here's the patch:
This "obvious" one-liner is needed to recognize Zaurus SL 6000;
it just checks two GUIDs not just one.
