Watapon ROM
« Reply #225 on: April 22, 2005, 06:49:26 am »
Ok. Thanks!
 At this moment I'm very very happy with this ROM. The most things I need runs perfect!

Now I'll try to install Apache + Php + MySQL.
Why these packages not in feed?
Can I have my own feed?

What is the future for this ROM?

They arent in the feed because I dont need them personally..
I'll throw them in my feed today but I wont have a chance to test them out for a while since my dsl is down for the next week while I move to a new house..

If anyone thinks something should be added to the feed pls email me and I will be happy to do it..

I know chaos is currently working on adding the new KDE/Pi version to an upcoming 1.6.2 release, and I am working on a host-ap package but I dont expect it to be ready until after this semester. All in all I dont see a lot of changes, just sime minor tweaks here and there.

*EDIT*
Packages Added, I have no idea if they work or not so let me know. I created the apache package with little more than the binary and as far as I know its the only package with php5

Hey dreadlocks thanks for packages!!
MySQL runs ok but Apache says "error loading share library: libexpat.so.1"

I download libexpat.so to my Z and I do symbolic link to /root/usr/lib and /usr/lib with ".1" but I get the same error. I don't know zaurus filesystems.

What do you mean with "repack" a package?

Thanks!

try this ipk and let me know if it works (so I can add it to my feed)
http://familiar.handhelds.org/releases/v0....95.7-r0_arm.ipk

repacks I have not compiled anything, I usally unpack it and change the directories arround if need be, remove any help files (help browser removed in watapon), change the icon and application description.. I perfer the way chaos dosent specifically name the program icons.. eg, Opera is called webbrowser and ZSafe is password manager.. I do the same for like ZBedic is Dictionary.. also Watapon does not have the same default tabs as the Sharp rom so I re-organize icon locations to be more logical..  most of the stuff is cosmetic specific to Watapon.

When I try to install the ipk I get next error:

zcat: stdin: unexpected end of file
ipkg_install_file: ERROR unpacking control.tar.gz from libexpat-bin_1.95.7-r0_arm.ipk

On the other hand, I can't install Apache, MySQL, Openssh, etc directly on the sd card. Can I move it then? How?

dreadlocks provided you with the packages, so I'll skip to the other questions...

They aren't in the feed, because I don't use them. The feed I maintain only has the packages I use in it. I believe it's more or less the same with dreadlocks' feed, but I think he may have more time to devote to packing IPKs than I, since he seems open to some requests.

If you feel like making your own feed, go ahead... But I doubt anyone would do it for you.

Watapon doesn't have much of a direction that it's heading at the moment. The major plans are to keep 1.6.x mostly up to date, with semi-frequent updates, when new versions of programs (such as KDEPIM/Pi) are released. The larger picture is to eventually swap over to Qtopia 2.1, but that's bound to take a LOT of work, so it'll be the summer at least before I work on that.

Oops, it's an ar package, not a tar.gz package!

Try this one, which I simply repacked as a tar.gz IPK. [a href=\"http://zaurus.duelmonsters.ca/stuff/libexpat-bin_1.95.7-r0_arm.ipk]http://zaurus.duelmonsters.ca/stuff/libexp...95.7-r0_arm.ipk[/url]
Sorry. I just don't have the time...

Hi!
I'm a OZ user and I decided to give a try to Watapon.
It looks very good and everything is working fine. Anyway I have two questions:
-How come that the / partitions is almost empty? In the OZ is almost full with aproximately the same amount of software.
-I installed Media Player package from Watapon feed. The problem is that all the options from Media Player menu are deactivated. This way I can't play anything. Am I doing anything wrong?
Thank you

1. The true / partition is almost stuffed, but it read-only, like all Sharp-based ROMs, so what you're seeing is the almost-empty nature of the /home partition.

2. I suggest using Kino2 from dreadlocks' feed as a media player.
Sorry. I just don't have the time...

Hi guys,
I have been using watapon 1.6 (with updates).  I am not really a KOPI user/fan and want to "cleanly" remove it from Watapon.  Any suggestion which files to remove.  

I have the original Sharp PIM ipk, and like to use it for it's simplicity.  Can ftp or email it to anyone needs it.

thanx a million.
Zaf
