OK, I just tried out 3.10, and ran screaming back to OpenZaurus. I
couldn't even get Sharp's official install to work (good sign there), so I
tried a minor derivative called "Cacko". As glitchy as OpenZ may be, it's
amazing what a leap back the Sharp system is. Enough rant.
I tried out both the Zaurus VMs on 3.10, and they were equally unusable on
my SL-5500. Trying to name an image on the command line gives the same
confusion to me, first the illegal instruction, then the file open dialog.
I can actually select an image, and have the image loaded. It displays in
landscape mode, half covering the bottom control panel, and extending up
two-thirds of the screen. Then, it locks up. Squeak doesn't listen to the
touchscreen or the buttons, and refuses to allow QTopia to do the same. I
can only power cycle it (or maybe remote log in, I never checked if ssh
I'm now busy making amends with OpenZaurus.
