Software for the SL-6000
« Reply #45 on: December 02, 2004, 09:34:45 pm »
Gramps,

try this one:

http://cyberphreak.com/zaurus/feed/

the guy who maintain it owns only the SL-6000L, as far as I know.

You may also want to have a look at his Zaurus page:

http://cyberphreak.com/zaurus/

If it can help, this is the list of all programs I have installed and work on my SL-6000L (not all downloaded from the above feed, by the way):

Backgammon 0.9.5
FreeNote 1.9.2pre
Javachess 1.0
Kino2 0.3 (but with mplayer from version 0.22)
Opie-reader 0.7h
Opie-tetrix 1.5-1
Petittrack 1.2.0 (Satellite Tracking software, I'm an Amateur Radio operator)
Powerchord 0.0.7
Qpdf2 freetype-2.2.1-20040217 (this is the version I found working best)
ResistorUI 1.5.0-0.9 (utility to "translate" resistors' color code)
ZUC 1.1 (conversion utility: ounces to grams, miles to kilometers, etc.)

About half of those programs can run at full 640x480 resolution. The rest works best with "display with magnified screen" checked, which will switch the Z to 320x240.

Enjoy the Z!!!

Since I couldn't find a shfs port anywhere, I built one myself.  Keep in mind this will probably only work on the SL-6000L, and even then likely only on the stock ROM due to the kernel module. I've tested the package on my Z, and it installs/uninstalls cleanly, but I have no other hardware / configurations to test it on. Use at own risk...

To anyone who has gotten prboom to work, can you post some information on what you did? I keep getting "Segmentation Fault" errors whenever I run prboom on my SL-6000L. I used the IPKs here:  http://www.gnurou.org/zaurus/feed

 Tree!Explorer QT is just about the nicest file manager I have used. The 1.7.0 version at http://www.killefiz.de/zaurus/ works very well with the Sharp rom 1.12 that came on the SL-6000. When it first starts, it is in Japenese (I think) but since I don't have Japenese fonts installed, the words across the top just look like boxes with letters beside them. If you click on the box beside the (V) for view, you can select English then everything works great (providing you speak English). You can also select French which looks like it works too. (Not completely sure since I don't speak French).

Yeah, TreeExplorer is great.

Might as well post what I'm keeping on my SL-6000L so far aside from the standard Qtopia apps. This is using the standard Sharp ROM 1.12.  Yeah, I've been busy.  

Applications:
FreeNoteQT (1.10.0)
FBVNCServer-SL6000 (0.9.5) (+ Added to rc.local) (* The zaurus version you typically find on feeds will cause massive problems, get the version from http://sdgsystems.com/download.html)
Hancompresenterviewer (1.6.0)
Kismet (3.0.1c-20031228) (* Signifigant hacking required)
Neic (1.0.1) (IRC client)
Neocal-Qtopia (1.7.7)
Opie Keypebble (0.9.1-20020703)  (VNC viewer)
Pure-FTPD (1.0.16-1) (+ Added to /etc/rc.local)
Python-exe (0.2)
Qazoo (0.8.1) (Yahoo IM)
QPDF2 (freetype-2.2.1-20040217)
QPE Filemanager (qpe-filemanager-vga) (1.5.0-2)
GAIM (qpe-gaim) (0.4-1cxx0) (* Signifigant hacking required)
Terminal (qpe-terminal-vga) (1.5.0-3)
QPEAlarmClock (2.0.0)
Qtopia-Sysinfo (1.0.1)
QTRDesktop (1.2.0) (Remote Desktop application)
RSync (2.5.6) (* Cannot get server to work, haven't tried client sync. I find it easier to use a Windows program called FTPSync and/or write custom stuff.)
SQLite3 (0.8.6)
TKCPlayer (2.0-031101)
TKCZip (2.0-031205)
Treeexplorer (1.6.0)
TXImage (0.2)
ZBedic (0.9.2-2 + many dictionaries, Wikipedia, etc.)
ZEditor (2.2.6English)
Zuc (1.1) (units conversion)

Games:
BustEm-Demo (1.2)
Froot (0.7.1)
Heretic (* More for giggles, I've found it unplayable. I run in 480x640 mode, oddly enough the mappings aren't bad and its faster that way.)
Interstellar-Flames-Demo (1.0)
KPacman (0.3.1-0.1)
Nethack (* Signifigant hacking required)
Opie Tetrix (1.5-1)
QPE-Minesweep (1.5.0-1)
Vectroids (1.1.0)
Zemufe (0.9.2-2) (Front end for ZNester)
ZNester (7.1-1) (* Added a custom znester.rc file so that the keymappings are wonky and reversed. If anyone wants the file I'd be happy to drop a web page on it. I'd love to disable sound, if anyone knows how to do this please let me know.)
ZSolitare (1.0)

Unix utilities:
ArmUtils (1)
Nano (0.9.23)

Libraries and drivers:
eon-libflac (1.0)
gconv-tiny (2.2.4-2)
irk-zaurus (0.11.0) (Taurus keyboard driver)
kismet-QT (2.0.0)
libSDL (1.2.6-zports_c7x0-1)
libSDL-mixer (1.2.5cvs-1)
libSDL-net (1.2.5cvs-1)
libgaim (0.73-1)
libgaim-protocols (0.73-1)
libgaim-ssl (0.73-1)
libgcrypt1 (1.1.9-3)
libglib2.0 (2.2.1)
libgnutls7 (0.8.10-2)
libopie1 (1.0.2)
libopie2 (1.8.2)
libpcap0 (0.7.2)
libpng (2.1.0.9)
libyahoo2 (0.7.4.2)
openssl-0.9.7a (0.9.7a)
qazoosounds (0.8)
zlib (1.1.2)
zlib1 (1.1.4)

I also followed these instructions (http://www.zaurususergroup.com/modules.php?op=modload&name=phpWiki&file=index&pagename=Samba%20over%20non-USB) to enable Samba all the time when connected; changed the passwords (so pure-ftpd is more secure), added mount / unmount USB commands, etc.

The following software I remember explicitly not working:
tkcRadio
MAME emulators (MaxMame works, but is dog slow. zMame doesn't work at all. Help us out here, coders  )
prboom (segment faults on my machine)

I'd love to see a Genesis emulator sometime for the Zaurus.

There's probably other software I tried that I can't remember that works, but I didn't like.

Hi,

I used to love using qconsole on my SL-5500 with it's tabbed sessions and readible fonts.  Does anyone know of a version compiled for use with the SL-6000's higher resolution screen?

Thanks,
Doug

Sorry I don't have a link handy, but I've used the qkonsole application found on the zaurus software archive website without a problem on my 6000. Select unmagnify and it will give you the higher resolution.
