OpenZaurus 2.9.5.4 (aka oz3 b10.5.4) Release Notes: Overview: The OpenZaurus project was created as an alternative distribution for The Sharp Zaurus SL-5000D and SL-5500 Personal Mobile Tools. This distribution started off as an altered Sharp rom, and eventually progressed in versions past 2.5 to a distribution of its own, built from the ground up. Its startup scripts and similar bits are debian-based. Here I will attempt to outline the differences between the Sharp ROMs and OpenZaurus. The biggest difference is that the root filesystem (flash) is writable. This requires more thought than one may think at first. On the Sharp rom, packages are installed to /, but due to a web of symlinks, the package is really installed into the ramdisk (mtdram). So, when sysinfo shows free space, it is showing you the free space in the ramdisk. To contrast, OpenZaurus, due to its writable rootfs, one can install packages directly to flash. So, the package manager defaults to this behavior, and looking at the free space may show you the free space in flash, not ramdisk. This is intuitive, but sufficiently different from the Sharp rom that it requires a bit of a mentality adjustment. Caveats: -The package manager is buggy, this is known.
