I use my z everyday for my work (science). I mostly use maxima for symbolic cal, emacs for latexing, djview for reading ebooks, xpdf, kopi etc. The z is so small that I can carry it around with me and use it whenever it is needed, and pdaxrom is powerful and stable. Thanks to all of you who has made such a wonderful os on the z.

It is very encouraging to hear that you rely on your Zaurus to provide a dependable and powerful portable platform for your work. I am actually very interested in about all the applications that you mention (except kopi and xpdf, which I am already familiar with.) If you wouldn't mind, could you elaborate on your use of emacs for latexing? I assume you are just using it to produce latex scripts, without having a TeX engine in the Zaurus itself capable of producing output, correct? Even so, I'm very interested in your setup. I think it's the first instance I have heard of someone using emacs in their Zaurus.

I would also like to thank all the people that have put so much work into the Zaurus platform and pdaXrom. The pdaXrom developers, and Meanie (the pdaXii13 developer.) Also, countless other users that have put their effort into different fronts, whether it be tracking problems, developing applications, compiling, or documenting (and I'm including in this last category all the incredibly useful discussions which this forum contains.)

There have been some very interesting developments (zubuntu for example, and kexec as a multibooting solution,) so I hope interest in the Zaurus somehow experiences a revival, because the platform and the community deserves it.


sorry I have not been following this thread for a while...
I have the whole tex distribution on z. I remember compiling a paper in AMS airport once. You can get a distribution at
http://www-alg.ist.hokudai.ac.jp/~jan/zaurus.html
The installtion need about 210M diskspace.

Another page with many useful sci applications is

Sure I'm interested in. If you could package this it would be easier for others to apply this patch :-)

Many thanks in advance!

Climber,

I will be doing that in a couple of days. I just learned how to compile natively, and my first release is going to be Fluxbox 1.0.0, and I will be starting a thread for that probably later today (just dealing with a minimal issue at the moment.)

I don't know if there is any place to upload new ipk releases or not, but we'll deal with that when the time comes. wink.gif

I'm having a lot of fun setting things up and learning how to do new things, I hope my efforts can benefit other people as well!


definitely looking forward to the release. I have been using the kopi without an alarm...

no luck on sound


jeh, run alsamixer as cortez said, then use the right arrow and go to the end, after one hundred column' devices you'll see "Speaker" "column" in my case must be > 90 to hear some sound


Hi Same

It seems you are able to run pdaxii13 on HD of SL-C3200 and zubuntu on SDHC. This is precisely what I want to do, but I have failed. I got Kernel panic: no init found ...

Can you give some hints on the installation? e.g. what is in your kernel-cmdline? Thanks in advance.

pdaxii13 (akita) on HD SL-C3200.
