Lo siento, llevo meses leyendo y releyendo documentación y no encuentro una respuesta o solución a mi problema, espero que vosotros me podáis ayudar.

Dispongo de una Sharp Zaurus SL-3100, como accesorios solo dispongo de una compact flash bluetooth, una CF de 4Gb y una CF modem gprs de la marca audiovox, así como un par de tarjetas SD de 1Gb y en cable usb que trae la propia pda en la caja

Mi intención era poder instalar una distribución como Debian o OpenBSD en la pda para poder trabajar con ella como si fuese un pequeño portátil, pero la documentación que he leído hasta ahora no me ha servido de nada y no hago más que dar palos de ciego.

Me podríais ayudar con la instalación (preferiblemente debian) o de donde puedo sacar un documento que me explique como poder hacer la instalación en la actualidad (otro de los problemas que me he encontrado al buscar info es que esta obsoleta o desactualizada.

Muchas Gracias

Puedes instalar la ROM Ängström y usar programas del pc directamente en la Zaurus (por ejemplo Abiword / Gnumeric). ¿Quieres instalar Debian por algo en especial?

Sorry to reply in English, but as the McDonald's commercial suggests: I understand Spanish, but don't speak it...

You can indeed put debian on your Z and use it as a very small laptop computer. I used it for 5 months as my only computer when I was on sabbatical last Spring (in Valencia, by the way).

Look on these forums for "debian". There are several installation methods available. The trick is to get a usable kernel, and some specialty programs for the touchscreen, the peripherals, and the keyboard. Beyond that it is pretty much pure debian. There are two somewhat incompatible systems, oabi and eabi. I used the eabi, and so was somewhat restricted to what is available in the still-incomplete debian armel distribution. But it is somewhat faster. Since the kernels are too large for the flash, the kernel installation methods are more complicated.

For oabi, you use the debian arm distribution, which is more complete. titchy linux is a good place to start there.

Once you get past installation with either system, you have debian, and the system is just like any other debian, with a few exceptions. Some programs don't work real well with eabi. iceweasel/icedove (firefox/thunderird) to menthon the biggest problems. But you can use sylpheed, and icehamster is a minimo-based browser that is very good on the small screen. A real firefox, which is available with oabi, really boggs down the little machine, anyway.

If you want more details, e-mail me off-list. All of the instructions and documentation I know about is in English, but I can help you with that.

BTW, the previous reply suggested Angstrom. I switched from Angstrom to debian to get more packages. Their distribution is good in terms of initial installation and porting, but they do not use a standard debian package base. You can hack around and install debian eabi packages in Angstrom, but it is difficult, and you won't get help from them since you are going outside their system. I needed tex and lyx, which I could not get from Angstrom.

As a last note, when I got back from Spain I immediately replaced my Z with an eeepc as my portable device. I really got tired of that small screen, limited RAM, and itty-bitty keyboard --- and with the limited packages. It is bigger than the Z, but not real big (1Kg), and cheap (~300 euros).
