Hi,

I'm trying to install Python on my shiny new 6000L. The riverbank package apparently doesn't exist any more. So off I went to the python for arm site (vanille.de) and downloaded the python-core-2.3.2-oz1-arm41-strongarm.ipk. Alas, the package installer GUI doesn't even see it.

Is there a work-around, or a different package somewhere? Help is super-appreciated.

The Riverbank Computing packages are still available at:

http://www.riverbankcomputing.co.uk/zaurus...us/download.php

I got them all a week or so ago, so I would imagine its a temporary fault ... If you need them right now, PM me with your email address and I'll send you them.

Mike.

They are 'ar' formatted. (vanille.de). Convert to tgz.

e.g.

mkdir foo
cd foo
ar x file
tar zcvf file

Hi datajerk

Do you know where one can get "ar" for a Zaurus? I would like to do this on the Z, but it says it cannot find the command. Still using original Sharp ROM until I flash to latest Cacko.

Thanks!!!

Oh yes, I searched in killefiz, nothing obvious - maybe it is included in some other package??

Search ipkg-new for the SharpROM - this one can handle new-style packages. Vanille.de will now become the primary site for arm-linux PyQt. I'm willing to do a minimal support for the SharpROM (i.e. build packages using gcc 2.x) but don't expect everything to work since I won't test on a SharpROM. Constructive feedback appreciated.

ar is usually in binutils. Search for a binutils ipk.

Thanks Mickey! We do appreciate it. I've been using your Python port on my "SharpROM" Z daily for months now. (Pretty much since the day I got it.)

If you care to keep the gcc 2.x versions of your Python port up to date for us SharpROM users, we will use it until the day when we can find unity in the Z OS of choice. smile.gif

e.g.

tar zcvf file

I tried this and it didn't work for me. I then came across the advice to be explicit with the tar command, in particular the ./ are important
tar zcvf file ./debian-binary ./data.tar.gz ./control.tar.gz

It then worked (this is on a 6000L)
Now on to PyQt

BTW is there a glossary somewhere? I'm an old timer but a newbie to Zaurus and it reminds me of a text adventure game where every explanation contains at least three mysteries for which I have to search for an explanation and so on recursively.
