Put the two files from pocketworkstation.org on your sd or compactflash card


Open terminal app and follow as below. This should work perfectly on a sl-5500. Your mileage may vary. I know other have had troubles with permissions, etc. this should work as long as your running as root.

vi /home/sharp/etc/launch.default
type a,ZZ    #save 'a' to file and quit. See launch.config
             #for details,prevents qtopia from restarting

terminate qtopia via shutdown app, terminate
10 seconds later, you'll see a command prompt


#If you need to format card
umount /mnt/card  # SD/MMC card
mkfs.ext2 /dev/mmcda1  

umount /mnt/cf      # CompactFlash or Microdrive
mkfs.ext2 /dev/compactflash    

cd /mnt/card    # SD/MMC card, Sharp or OpenZaurus ROM
cd /home        # SD/MMC card, Crow ROM
cd /mnt/cf      # CompactFlash or Microdrive

gunzip gnu-tar.gz
chmod 775 gnu-tar
./gnu-tar -C debroot -xvzpf zaurus-debian-*.tgz  #This will take a about an hour

cd /debroot/INSTALL.d
Answer 'yes' to everything including 'Start Vncserver now?' and 'Start Fbvnc now?'.
Debian is now installed, and running. Read the readme, and apt get your heart ot.

icewm has two graphical config tools, icepref and iceme.
You might want to try apt getting them.

apt-get install packagename

You can get out of the X environment by pressing SHIFT+Fn+Q. (use virtual keyboard, not real)
You should be back to the command prompt after pressing Shift+Fn+Q.
To get back to qtopia, run the script to stop zdebian, put a q in launch.default, and exit.

/etc/rc.d/init.d/zdebian stop
vi /home/sharp/etc/launch.default
type r,q,ZZ

qtopia will now boot

Needed vi commands:
r              change current character
ZZ             write file to disk, quit vi
