pp4zaurus
« on: April 22, 2024, 03:54:32 am »
Hi,

Does anyone still have a copy of the original pp4zaurus?

pp4zaurus-1_0-ea4a-linux-arm-OptimizedJIT_nosym.zip

It can't be downloaded from http://java.sun.com/developer/earlyAccess/pp4zaurus on web.archive.org.

Thanks

P.S. I do have personal-profile-for-zaurus_1.0-fcs-b25-1_arm.ipk but I am looking for the earlier one.

I have also done a search on archive.org, hoping that for one of the multiple redirections there would be a backup, from a different date, to an actual page, but to no avail. I have checked among all the attachments here too, no one has ever uploaded it here. I'll search through my archives this evening and let you know.

Is this required by some program you're attempting to run?

Hi Varti,

Good to hear from you and thanks for looking into this for me.
I am trying to run some Java Swing applications. I was able to get them working in Jeode, which runs Java 1.1 and works well with the swingZ.jar library. I was also trying to get it to work with the latest version of Sun's pp4zaurus (1.0-fcs-b25-1_arm), which is Java 1.3, but that isn't compatible with Swing 1.1. I get a 'getPeer()' error. It seems that Java 1.3 is looking for java/awt/peer, I'm not sure if this has anything to do with sun/awt/peer.

Looking at this post from 2002 - https://forums.oracle.com/ords/apexds/post/swing-on-ipaq-step-by-step-7569 - the older version of pp4zaurus does work with Swing 1.1, which is why I am trying to get hold of it.

I am looking for pp4zaurus build 1.0_ea4-b18.

Thanks

I have checked at home in my personal archives but I have not found it. I'll see if I'll find the other file you mentioned, I see it was the actual package inside the .zip file. In the meantime I have tried to ask support on the www.java.com site (though I highly doubt they'll still have the archive) and tried to add a comment in these two old blogs, maybe we'll be lucky and they still have a copy of it, though I'm not sure my comments have passed through...

I have also tried to ask on Reddit, there still seem to be a couple of users lurking there, though my post is being rejected by Reddit's antispam filter, I have sent a message to the mods:

Thanks Varti!

I thought I got lucky today, but it was a dead link:

http://www2u.biglobe.ne.jp/~fsasaki/download/pp4zaurus-1_0-ea4a-linux-arm-OptimizedJIT_nosym.zip

Yes, it seems that personal-profile-for-zaurus_arm.ipk is contained within pp4zaurus-1_0-ea4a-linux-arm-OptimizedJIT_nosym.zip.

And http://zaurus.daemons.gr/menaie/feed/personal-profile-for-zaurus_arm.ipk used to exist, but unfortunately is not on web.archive.org.

Got my post approved after I have been made moderator of r/Zaurus , heh :)

https://www.reddit.com/r/Zaurus/comments/1cbta39/does_anybody_have_a_copy_of_pp4zaurus_j2me/

On a side note, a complete mirror of Meanie's feed would be also great to find, too bad I didn't mirror it myself back in the days.

EDIT: I have tried to send an email to Meanie, I have probably found a working email address of his, fingers crossed.
