Flurry of Zaurus Improvements

Contributed by jolan on from the return-of-the-bumpasaurus dept.

There's been a lot of notable improvements to the Zaurus port lately:

Now if only Sharp would come out with a newer model that has a 6GB hard drive so debug libraries would fit.

    It is great being a Zaurus owner, every snap there is notable improvements, and the community is really coming together. I wish the battery wasn't so hard to code for though.

    The debug libraries don't fit when what else is installed? The source tree? Ports too?

      I have source and ports installed on my Zaurus, but it does take up a lot of disk space.
      Having ports installed is quite essential as due to slow compilation times there are few packages available compared to other platforms. At least that was the case.
      I used to have ports installed as a mounted NFS share but it is much better having it local.

    and now featuring overclocking via sysctl.

    One one of the Zaurus-linux boards, an individual did crack the case of his 3000 and replace the Hitachi CF Hard drive with a 4GB solid state drive to improve performance. Assuming this works, you should be able to replace the 4GB drive with one up to 12GB assuming you have the $$$. Pretec has 12GB CF cards at

      umm, the price on that is $9,999.99 from the Pretech website. ouch.
