GotenSSj,

I think you're 'barking up the wrong tree' here....

For Palm OS development think you need to use other development tools....

Check out the following for your options:

I just setup zgcc on my Zaurus last night. Do a search in the forums for 'zgcc' and look for a tutorial.

I don't have the exact link here, I have it at home if you can't find the tutorial.

Here's a link to some general advice for setup and installation of ZGCC and some other tools for compiling directly on the Zaurus:
[a href=\"https://www.oesf.org/forums/index.php?showtopic=13578&view=findpost&p=99465]https://www.oesf.org/forums/index.php?showt...indpost&p=99465[/url]

If you want to build your programs on another PC, you get a cross-compiler chain
for the PC, and it will probably work much faster.  Still, ZGCC is easier to set up
if you want to say "hello world".

In the long term... you may also want to consider running a different ROM than the built-in Sharp ROM; its limited, its old, and rather less flexible for most people's purposes. OpenZaurus has a nice build system, and also supports X natively if you're more familiar with X than QT.
