I've been trying to compile glibc myself (without success, but I didn't have the configure options I PM'ed you. I've tried 2.3 - 2.3.1 - 2.3.2 - 2.3.3
I got almost no errors on 2.3.3 (all the others gave me loads of errors, but I didn't succeed in making a working version) - maybe that's the one we should focus on ?

Is compiling this pdaXrom specific or the C series ARM specific?

If it's not pdaXrom specific, I'm just curious if posting a topic on one of the more general forums might encounter someone who's compiled this for this architecture?

strangely, 2.3.3 onwards gives me hell lot of errors   that's why i was battling with 2.3.2
somehow i feel may it be the problem of cross compiling tools? you know, cross compiling is always troublesome and picky.

It's been suggested in another post that it might be more sensible to recompile OpenOffice for glibc 2.2.x rather than trying to add glibc 2.3.x to pdaXrom.

Would that make sense?
Is that doable?

Hi everyone, just trying to keep this thread alive...

It seems like some progress is being made. I was wondering if anyone else was having any luck?

Hi,

I need some help on a few things :

I've reached a point where most things on my Z work, in combination with OOo.
But,

I have to set a new font for my X-system (the title-bars are so small you can't read them or you cant see-click the icons in it). How can I do this ?

The settings apps are using another font I guess. This is gone too, where can I set this one ?

 [ Invalid Attachment ]

Almost to a point where it can be packaged ...

I'm curious about something, perhaps someone can let me know if this is possible.

the X/QT + debian pocket workstation allows OpenOffice to work.

pdaXrom and debian can't be that dis-similar (probably am wrong about that! lol)

Is it not possible to graft the parts from debian into pdaXrom, i.e. copy the files, libraries and dependencies needed, re-link them and thus get OpenOffice to work natively in pdaXrom?

Sounds really complicated even to me, lol, but I know there are a lot of very clever people out there.

Hiya, I've been away for ages and haven't even touched my Z in a month, am having Z withdrawal. LOL

Was wondering if any progress had been made towards getting OpenOffice to run on pdaXrom. I'm itching to ditch my Sharp ROM for pdaXrom permanently :-)

Hi Chero

any progress on this? I see that on your homepage you don't even mention OOo. Have you given up?  

BTW thanks for your XFCE stuff

No progress yet, I was running out of time.

Winter is starting over here, so now we'll have looooong winter-evenings and a lot of time to play with my new toy.
I even think there will be more interest in this now, I've seen some new guys in the pdaX-forum that seem to be real zaurus-guru's.

Awesome, what's brought about the renewed (or perhaps just new) interest from these people?

They didn't tell me why they are interested in pdaXrom (I didn't ask). But I guess the answer will be obvious : pdaXrom is amazing !!

Awesome, so is the glibc still the only thing preventing open office running on pdaXrom?

Or is someone looking at recompiling open office for pdaXrom?

glibc 2.3.5 compiles (with some patching, that is, and there are some configure errors as well ; it takes half a day for a native build supported by a distcc PC) but many apps get broken and X seems to have bugs. The only way to update to 2.3 is to have sashz port and build the feed using it.

Openoffice just doesn't compile, you may try but you will get too many errors to have the slightest hope to make a full working build.
All my reports and testing were made (if no other mention given) on SL-C1000
