Cacko 121b - Nethack And Kino2
« on: December 23, 2004, 07:19:44 pm »
hi - i'm using cacko 1.21b on my 860.  i'm trying to install nethack, but the version from the zaurus software index (qpe-nethack) doesn't even show up in the list when i try to install packages.  Is there another version out there that is packaged for this rom?

also, i want to view some videos, but they don't run.  I have an assotment of mpg, mpeg, avi, mov files but nothing plays.  I try to run them and it just flashes a bit and then back to the kino screen.  This is odd as i used to use TKC and never had a problem with kino2.  Any ideas?

Hi,

nethack runs fine on my c860 using cacko 1.21b. There is only a small access right problem. There are two possible solutions:

1) You cold simply run nethack as root (click on the nethack icon until the setting screen apears and check the "run as root").

2) The other solution is better: Run nethack from the console. There is an error message saying that a file is not writeable. I don't remember the file name. Give the user "Zaurus" write access to that file. Now you can run it from the icon. You should also set some values in the config file to adapt to the higher resolution of the screen.

I usually use mpeg4 videos that I recoded for the zaurus. They usually even play in the "Video Player". I was not able to play "untouched" videos on the Z.

This is the same ipk that i have, but i doesn't show up in the "install software" list.  How did you install it?

Hi,

I just copied the file to Documents/Install_Files on my cf card. Then it was visible in the "install software" List.

Do you see other install-files from the directory where you placed the nethack ipk?

Yes i see other ipks in the same directory, just not this one.

I see that cacko 1.22 is out.  I think i'll try that out and see if these problems persist.
