I have a C-1000, leather case and a WiFi card for it. As I have always used it with an SD and CF card, I've lost the original port covers. I have a compatible UK charger/power supply.

The battery for this has died and no longer holds a charge and I've seen this as a sign that it's time to move on, as I've barely used it in the last six months.

I'd rather not just bin it, as it still works perfectly fine when on mains power, and I don't see any reason to sell it without a working battery.

I wondered if anyone from the Zaurus development community could give it a good home?

I live in London UK, so if you're in the city, I can easily arrange to meet you somewhere central and just hand it to you. Otherwise, if you're willing to pay packaging and postage, I'll send it to you.

Let me know if anyone is interested,

OK, changed this post as it's clearly possible to install debian on a C1000 now I've read more.

Can someone explain or point me towards an explanation of all the different EABIs/OABIs/Tinys/Pokeys as it's all a bit confusing.

What is best for a device with limits such as the C1000?

Hey guys,

I have a C1000 with a 1gb SD and a 256mb CF.

I'm desperate to give my Z new life. I love all these new UMPCs and I've even got one (though it's rather large really with a 7" display), but they are big, clunky, limited battery life and XP takes a good age to boot up or come out of hibernation.

I still take my Z places, switch it on (instantly), two taps and I have the app I need open. Plus it's way easier to type a little note or email on a crowded commuter train with your Z in your hands using your thumbs than with my UMPC needing a lap. lol

So what's the best thing to suggest? Stick with Cacko?

Or is there *finally* a similarly stable and responsive alternative?

Killer and essential apps:

Word processor
Web browser
PDF viewer

I've tried the pdaXii and all credit due it's very nice, but wasn't quite to my taste.

I think I need something a little more lightweight. Think Z for a mac user.... it just has to work ;-)

I've been away from all things pdaX for ages now, all the lack of direction, progress and bickering got tedious, anyway ancient history.

However, I'm giving my Z one last hurrah while I stump up the money for a clamshell UMPC.

I've a C1000 and these are my wants, needs:

basic pda stuff
Word processor - openoffice would be awesome, but that never seems to be available for the Z outside of Meanie's great add on to Cacko which I currently use.
Spreadsheet - openoffice again would be awesome.
(Anyone know what happened to the lightweight openoffice they were developing once upon a time for pda and low power pcs?)
I'd really like to run apache, mysql and php.
A decent editor to code with.

Now my linux skills are still very basic, my brain isn't one that copes well with faffing.

What would be the best version/set up for me?

hey there,

been a long long time since I've used my C1000 Z, but I was wondering. Once upon a time, back in the old days of my 5500 you could install a very useful little applet that put on apache, mysql and php.

Does anything exist like that and is tried and tested for Cacko?
