Hey.

Trying 336pre on my 5600.  Works pretty nice after the echo statement.  got wireless working also... so Im surfing with Konqueror.  

Couple of newbie-ish questions:

1)
df -h reports no memory left 22.0M used on /  ... /dev/root

is this normal ? or is there leftover crap from previous flashes?

2)
nothing else installs because of this problem... so I would like to remove some of the games and other apps that take up valuable space...
Is there a way to do this cleanly, other than by doing a find and then removing the program?  I tried the package manager but it does not list the already \"pre-packaged\" packages.

3)
Any reports on opie media player working on 3.3.6 with a 5600?  

4)
Can precompiled Sharp binaries like the mediaplayer etc work on OZ?

Ok, thanks!

1) It could be that you have very little space left on root (on a 5500 for example), not sure about the relative memory (and ROM) size on a 5600.

2) Try using ipkg from the command line?

3) I don\'t think it tends to work on anything, try mplayer & xmms for a frontend.

4) Yes, OZ has later libs than the Sharp ROM. You may (will) have troubles with stuff directly from the 5600 Sharp ROM though as it uses that quicklaunch thing (I think the name\'s right). It\'s possible to get them working, but not worth the effort IMHO.
