Hi Folks,

I was once part of the wonderful Zaurus community and I have a lot to thank both the community and the device for as I have learned a great deal about Linux since I first bought one and am now working in a Linux development role as a result!

Since my C3200 no longer gets any attention I thought it was time to sell. I have the whole kit; Bluetooth adapter, wifi adapter, headphone cable remote control, faux leather case, all boxes and manuals. I've no idea what it's all worth so if anyone is interested please contact me with offers.

I will probably put it on eBay soon, but this seemed to be the place to mention it first.

If you are not interested but can give me an idea of the current asking price I would be grateful, I haven't seen any second hand 3200's sold at all and as I recall they were the top model, so I'm hoping for a reasonable deal.

Zort modified for Zaurus & Offline news reading

Original scripts from http://zort.sourceforge.net/

I made some changes to zort in order to have a fast and easy accessible offline (or online) rss feed aggregator for pdaXrom. The original scripts have been designed with modern browsers on mind and rely on javascript and css, I have stripped it down to basic html and made it display one page per feed with header and footer links to quickly navigate between feeds.

Rename the .txt file to .tgz and unpack to the root, this will create /var/www/zort and /usr/bin/sync-rss you can change these locations if you wish.

You will need apache running with php, and you may need to tweak the timeout value in php.ini if you have many feeds. I personally run this from a debian server as it's quicker but have tested it works fine inpdaXrom also.

Also I have made a simple shell script to download the pages for offline viewing (/usr/bin/sync/rss) you should edit this script if you with to change any paths of your files - default htdocs is /var/www.

Once you have run /usr/bin/sync-rss it will create a launcher script here /var/www/offline/offline_reader.sh (this can easily be changed in sync-rss) which will remap the scroller on a CXX00 to pgup/pgdn and launch the latest offline copy in dillo.

This was originally intended for personal use but if anyone likes it feel free to suggest improvements smile.gif

EDIT: please rename .txt to .tgz and unpack - sorry no ipk!

There's an old ipk of Minimo floating around - it's not very good but as version 2 has now been released, I wondered if it was possible to compile it for pdaxrom?


There can never be too many browsers for pdaxrom biggrin.gif

I just discovered Calgoo (http://www.calgoo.com/calgoo.html) which uses the google calendar api so you can use your calendar online/offline. Is it possible to compile this for pdaxrom, or does anyone know of a suitable program that we can use with google calendar?

Hi all,

Just wanted to say that if you install unclutter from meanie's post here (https://www.oesf.org/forums/index.php?showtopic=18415&st=280&#)

if has problems in fluxbox, if you use keyboard navigation on the menu it will cause navigation to mess up.
