Didn't find this here yet, but I didn't really search, so forgive me if this is a repeat post. At best, this might renew some interest.


It's got everything we would need at a reasonable price AFAIK ; not much documentation however. If anyone has done this already, maybe some links/notes/screenshots could be posted?


I haven't really seen any screenshots of Xorg running yet, but it's supposedly in one of the available ROM images. with matchbox/kdrive

EDIT: gumstix was mentioned way back here over two years ago along with the coLibri module which has been upgraded now to the pxa320 @ 806MHz, but doesn't come with OpenEmbedded.

The main thing that's stopping me from buying gumstix I guess is a general distaste for xscale compared to x86... (thinking mini-ITX, 'cause I still haven't gotten one yet)


EDIT2: mini-ITX is too big. (saving to buy a robostix combo)

At present, most of us are working from these somewhat outdated directions:

Tutorial: Pdaxrom On Sl-6000

This thread is one of my attempts to try to bring the tosa up to par with the clamshells concerning pdaxrom. As I see it, someone needs to use pdaxrom builder or some other method to build a newer image for tosa that can be loaded by the "u-boot" bootloader.

I'll try to add more notes as time passes.

For now, there are two more links of interest:

Service Pack 1 For Beta1

Trying to install from the following directions hasn't worked so far.


I don't recall the errors. If I find time, I'll post them here, but ideally they'll be working soon. The following link is where I downloaded the images from.


Trying to find a way to boot angstrom led me to the following page, which was simultaneously amusing, and frustrating, since as of yet, this issue is not resolved.


I'm assuming that we're currently working somewhere along the lines of this thread:


As of yet, I still haven't gotten Angstrom to boot. Any help would be appreciated.

I didn't want the "New Packages Thread" to become a discussion for this if possible... unless it's clear we're going to abandon it.

For me, the thread is serving it's purpose nicely. I sometimes have troubles with the search function on this forum; it occassionally fails for no apparent reason, so a single thread is a little cumbersome, but not that bad compared to searching.

Alternatively, the new pdaxrom site is up. How far away are we from submitting packages to it? What about the tyrannozaurus "everyone" feeds? Any ideas?

Would people mind mentioning which release has been used when compiling - it's evident most r121 packages will not run in beta 3 so it will save us time and the forums bandwidth if we knew.


Often asked:


I am wondering if folks would not be better served by a standard post rather than a single thread. For example:

Subject: NPA: Debbie Does Zaurus

Package: ddz
Priority: optional
Section: Games
Maintainer: Debbie
Architecture: armv5tel
Version: 2.4.4-2
Depends: libbodyparts, libpositions, libunderwear, libcleaningsupplies
Package: ddz_2.4.4-2_armv5tel.ipk
Size: 4971788
MD5Sum: bf0efbf716cc6fc113912ecb2778971d
Description: Debbie Does Zaurus is a fun game in which a small town girl falls in love with a handheld device.

Then folks could discuss any issues with the package in that thread. You could search for them all with NPA: The NPA: posts could be placed in at least the appropriate folders for the ROMs they were built for. Just a thought. If we ever get any traffic at the new site, maybe that is the way we can do it there.

For what it's worth, everything I've compiled thus far runs on beta1 through rc179. I haven't really had too big of a problem between beta1 and rc121+ yet.

Does anyone use beta3 with a 2.6 kernel?

I've been looking over the build pages for pdaxii13




I haven't quite worked up to trying this yet, since I'm still trying to find out how to use the "endecsh" utility;

According to the second link, one should be able to flash any kernel via this method. Of course, that may be potentially hazardous.

Has anyone done anything similar to this? What would be some benefits and drawbacks to doing so?
