It looks like we're being watched. As the news spreads itself across the Net, is seems like it's kind of special to have this thing running on real hardware already. And we Zaurus users are one of the happy few. Not bad if you think that the Zaurus is no longer manufactured and shamelessly abandoned by Sharp. You wonder what drives people in making these kind of decisions. Look at the impressive amount of distro's and applications and see what this mini-laptop is capable of. There is no machine like the Zaurus currently. So the responsible people at the Sharp headquarters still have a change to regret what they did and restart the assembly lines. Just my two cents worth. False hope I guess :-(

We've been spotted by Android 
It seems like you never can do anything unnoticed here on the Net. The word that we as proud owners of a Zaurus are part of the happy few Android users is traveling fast. Thanks for mentioning my efforts guys, but most credits go to others, I just followed their instructions and created a hassle-free installation so others can give it a try as well.

I've added the installation instructions from my earlier post in the menu on the left. Installation won't get easier than this I think, and believe me, it's really worth giving it a try. So install it while it's still fresh :-)

Debian on Zaurus. The continuing story 
I started to document my attempts on creating a clean debian system from scratch on my Zaurus. Although this has been done before using a ready-made root filesystem, my attempts start from scratch. Bear with me here

I'm still working on it, so it may be a bit premature to give it a try by following the instructions step by step.

Please leave a note if you find any errors. Thanks in advance!

Media Center needs updating 
I recently installed LinuxMCE in favor of M$ Vista. Vista is suckin' big time, period! It's a 10+ minute boot each time, and after 5 minutes or so the systems hangs completely. So I finally decided to dump it. Installation of LinuxMCE was a drag, but finally I got it installed. Playing music and watching movies works great, but somehow my Hauppauge PVR350 (including the infra red control) is not detected. That means I'm missing quite some of the media center experience (whatever that may be), and I'm unable to control the system using a remote control.

Now I see that there's a new beta available, based on Kubuntu 0710. I guess that means I have to spent some time reinstalling
