Funny about the keymappings. Mine all work both in my C3000 and C3100. Maybe you should compare your keymap to mine or use it. My xqt keymap can be found at http://www.users.on.net/~hluc/myZaurus/cus...xmodmaprc-c3000

rename it to .xmodmaprc and place it under /home/zaurus and/or /home/root

Obviously this keymap only works for C3000/C3100/C1000 models. The key layouts for other models are slightly different and since I don't have one of those, you will need to create your own keymap translation file.

well, I managed to create a cramfs for OpenOffice with a shrink wrapped version of debian on it which I have called minideb. The whole cramfs image is just under 100MB but I am still working on shrinking it further. This allows you to run openoffice without installing pocketworkstation. all you need is xqt-gtk-jumbo.cramfs and xqt-openoffice.cramfs

meanie...

the automounter works fine but i discovered a sad problem

it does not allow the sharprom to restore properly.  severe crash!

i tried this with a current install or a clean flash

same on cacko.  I went back from cacko cuz i thought cacko might be having issues with backup restore but not sure.  I was not testing on it that much.  but i know its the automounter for sure on sharprom.  probably related to sudo but who knows.

I also had a problem with the automounter on Cacko. After installing it, the external USB memory stick I use did not work anymore. Removing automounter did not solve the issue -  I had to reflash Cacko. Now everything works again...

Cresho: I had some initial problems with backup/restore on Cacko ( see my post in the Cxx00 general forum ) - but the last 3 times the backup went fine...

actually, you will need to turn off automounter by runnning

Code: [Select]
/etc/rc.d/init.d/mntloop stopbefore doing any backup or restore operations.

you can then turn it back on by running

Code: [Select]
/etc/rc.d/init.d/mntloop start

this did not work so i had to check the devices by typing mount between each session to see how it behaved.  so you need to su instead.

Code: [Select]
su
/etc/rc.d/init.d/mntloop stop
before doing any backup or restore operations.



Code: [Select]
su
/etc/rc.d/init.d/mntloop start
to turn it back on by running


this works perfect.  I tested it and its fabulous.  Very happy man!

just to give you a heads up meanie.
-automount works perfect without needing to do any commands.  i can eject and all and i see no problems at all.
-need to su before applying those commands.

  now to make abiword work and ill post the errors as i go.  just need a few libraries i know i seen them somewere. now the / works but im not sure which applications screws it up.  ill post my findings another time.  I know my / key dies with one of my apps.



---------------------------

update on getting abiword and gnumeric to work

install
gtk2_2.4.13_arm.ipk
glib2_2.4.7_arm.ipk

search for them in google.

this will get abiword to work also posted by meanie on his website.  These files will give you a corrupted install error but they work fine.  Ignore this error, click ok-wait a minute or 2 and finish installing.  after if you want to uninstall, you need to unmount the crams images from mount because the installer gives you an error " something went wrong."  One thing that bothered me is, for the life of me i can't remember what i did, i started gnumeric once and was missing a library.  The real case here is i had to re-run ./xqt-install.sh again to relink that missing particular library which was libgnomeui-2.so.0 just reinstalling fixed the broken link.

abiword opens up and works just fine.
gnumeric works just fine as well.

problem fixed


do not use sudo_1.6.3p7-2_arm.ipk  cuz this one locks up when suspend


sudo_0.1_arm.ipk   this version works fine

use this one    


this is the old post
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
I just discovered a new problem Meanie-

My device locks up badly and i am not sure if its related to bluez.

suspend resume and suspend resume bluez.

when i uninstall these files including the extra bluez stuff, my zaurus does not lock up.  When i reinstall, it locks up in suspend and i need to do a hardreset to get my zaurus working again.

Any ideas?  i exhausted all my resources.  This is related to the automounter.

i was at my job last night after installing bluez since i was getting my zaurus running again with a fresh install.  I closed the lid thinking it was fine and when i tried relogging this morning, my zaurus was dead.  I thought i bricked it but i decided to place it on the charger.  NO light came on and after a few minutes, it began to charge.  its fine now but the lock up severely sucked the battery dry.

everything is almost perfect but.....man if its not one thing, its another.

everything works like eject sd and all and remounting and even the swap file works.  This is just a new bug needs to fish out.
-----------------------------------------------------


and here is the final product running.  I took down some icons because i am not using the other applications at the moment.

I would like to thank Meanie for the work on the cramfs package, this is exactly what I wanted to run these type of programs. So far everything looks good. It's cool to add some functionality in something that will, eventually, be relatively easy to install.

This is some notes from the installation. I am running a Sharp SL-6000L with the standard Sharp ROM:

A)  Right now, the packages at http://www.thegrinder.ws/Meanies_XQT/ seem out of date? They are only for October 23rd and lack the split packages. Or maybe that is all that is out right now.

 I ran into the same installation problem mentioned here regarding libjpeg.so.62, and because I failed to read ahead, I forgot to correct it after running the app install. :/ Fortunately pure-ftp worked after the reboot so I could FTP in as root and replace the file, avoiding the reflash.

C) The /etc/fstab method that was used by the app installation script for some reason did not work on bootup. The Zaurus was giving a message that it wasn't recognizing the /usr/mnt.rom/ paths. I'm suspecting how the fstab is handled may be different for the C series. For now what I've done is modify the mntpython script that got dumped into /etc/rc.d/init.d/ to also mount the X/Qt cramfs images using the mount command. (The mntpython script comes from the Python cramfs image posted here.)

D) The following apps did not work on the SL-6000L at least with my configuration: Abiword and Minimo (missing: g_type_class_add_private while loading libgtk-x11-2.0.so.0); XChat and Thunderbird (missing: g_type_class_add_private when loading libpangoft2-1.0.so.0)

The following apps at least ran  : XMMS, Sypheed, Gimp, Firefox, Dillo, Ethereal. I didn't do much testing on how they worked, but I like what I see so far.

E) For the SL-6000L, the screen is upside down in rotated (640x480) mode, and the coordinates for tapping the stylus are reversed. The interesting thing is, the X/Qt server does not respond to rotation changes. So you actually can start in rotated mode, flip to the standard (480x640) mode, and you have a working 640x480 screen. It's kind of strange.  

Here's a sample of what I mean...

[img]http://www.kcgould.net/temp/xqtzaurus.jpg\" border=\"0\" class=\"linked-image\" /]

My quest in installing this is to see if Firefox can run Java applets in the browser (as far as I know this is not available on any Qtopia-based browser yet). I'll give it a try tonight.
