|Dillo Web Browser||dillo-0.8.5-SA1100.tgz||Version 0.8.5 of Dillo - source from http://www.dillo.org . Compiled on Sarge Book (Debian 3.1) with "-O2 -mcpu=strongarm1100 -mtune=strongarm1100" options. SSL is not enabled - which, it doesn't work very well yet anyways. Install with "tar xfz dillo-0.8.5-SA1100.tgz -C /usr/local"
|Access X||accessx-0.951-arm-bdd.tgz||The Access X application (http://cmos-eng.rehab.uiuc.edu/accessx/freewareaccessx.html) is an open source utility to set and display all of the XKEYBOARD (XKB) Access X features.
|dcalc||dcalc-2.12-arm.tgz||dcalc is a console based RPN calculator (http://bhepple.freeshell.org/dcalc/unix/dcalcCurses.html) A precursor to the famous EPOC dcalc (http://bhepple.freeshell.org/dcalc/psion/) and unix gdcalc (http://bhepple.freeshell.org/dcalc/unix/). Very fast. The tarball has three files - the binary, the man file and a README. Put them where you like!
|flwriter||flwriter-0.3.1-sa1100.tgz||flwriter is an wordprocessor application from http://www.oksid.ch/xd640/ - xd640 is a simple graphical desktop environment for X-Window. The goal is to create a set of light weight and fast applications running on a slow computer and on a small screen and released under the BSD license. xd640 is based on the fltk-utf8 toolkit. While there are several applications within xd640 of potential use to the netBook, the most frequently cited is flwriter, which has been compiled for netbook in this package. The application has been statically linked (by default) so it is
a single binary of ca. 1 MB in size. Install with "tar xfz flwriter-0.3.1-sa1100.tgz -C /usr/local", or just unpack the tarball and copy the flwriter binary to /usr/local/bin. You can also get and install the dictionaries from the xd640 site mentioned above. The complete xd640 package (including fltk-utf8) compiled for netbook can be downloaded from the link below.
|xd640||xd640-0.3.1-sa1100.tgz||xd640 is a simple graphical desktop environment for X-Window. The goal is to create a set of light weight and fast applications running on a slow computer and on a small screen and released under the BSD license. xd640 is based on the fltk-utf8 toolkit. In addition to flwriter (above), xd640 has things like a clock, a file manager and a simple text editor. A 7.3 MB tarball. Install with "tar xfz xd640-0.3.1-sa1100.tgz -C /usr/local",
|xinvaders||xinvaders-2.1.1-sa1100.tgz||Classic arcade game - works well on netBook! Install with "tar xfz xinvaders-2.1.1-sa1100.tgz -C /usr/local". Installs to /usr/local/games.
|xephem||xephem-3.6.4-sa1100.tgz||So that you will know where the invaders (c.f., above) are coming from, here is xephem, an advanced planetarium application. xephem works fine
on the netBook, although it can be a little slow updating the star chart. The file /usr/X11R6/lib/X11/app-defaults/XEphem
has the default X resources/configurations for xephem, and these have been adjusted here
for the netBook to some extent. xephem is a ca. 7MB size package, mainly because of the data bases and image files that
go along with it. Has the moon locations for the various planets, etc. xephem can also be used to control a telescope over
the netBook's serial port, I believe. Requires the Debian lesstiff1 package. The
"help" command is set to use dillo - although incorrectly, which is just as well, because looking at the "help"
html file with dillo caused my netBook to crash (repeatable!) You might set the browser to be, e.g., links or firefox. Install
with "tar xfz xephem-3.6.4-sa1100.tgz -C /"; xephem is installed to /usr/local(bin, share/xephem, man), with the exception of the
aforementioned X resource file. This package is posted here with the permission of xephem's author.
|SIAG||siag-3.6.0-sa1100.tgz||The Scheme In A Grid (SIAG) Office Suite package contains a number of useful "office" applications, a spread sheet (siag) and a WYSYWIG word processor (pathetic writer, or pw): "Siag Office is a tightly integrated, free office package. It consists of the spreadsheet Siag, the word processor PW, the animation program Egon, the text editor Xed Plus, the file manager Xfiler and the previewer Gvu." The egon binary in this compiled package seems to just segmentation fault on my netBook, however. Install with the 2.7 MB SIAG package with "tar cfz siag.tgz -C /usr/local".
|Index||index-arm.tgz||Index is a very old, console-based, application that is similar to Epoc's "Data" or "Contacts": "Index is used to maintain simple databases such as address lists, lists of books or compact discs, and so on. All databases are stored as simple text files in a single directory." There is no webpage for index. Try it out - it works well and costs nothing to try! 17 KB package. Unpack this tarball in its own directory and then copy the bits where you like. Version 1.2 (dated 1990)
