Outdated Angstom Wiki And Links
« on: May 15, 2010, 10:02:44 pm »
Hi,

Its been a looonnnngg time.

I figured I might as well hack my zaurus for the time being.
I'm thinking of making a wireless NAS out of it for light File sharing.

So, I have no idea now how to install Angstorm.
I looks like Angstrom is the most up to date distro...am I wrong?
I had zubuntu, but did a nand flash and now have the Sharp Rom installed.

Do I still need a update.sh, zImage.bin and initrd.bin?
I found a link on Angstroms site to build a custom install, but I have no idea what to do with it.
I also can't get a build to work.  I keep getting fails.  I just wanted X-11 or Opie.  SMB/NFS.  If I keep a minicomputer, maybe a web browser of some sort.

I'm sorry this is noobish, but I haven't touched my zaurus  in ages...I'm a noob again.

Thanks,
btanoue

Netgear Wireless CF cards are the worst, went through 2 of them!
