X11 hacking

It seems that libxrandr is installed. Thus in theory the X window can be rotated. Any idea to try? http://en.tldp.org/LDP/Mobile-Guide/...t-display.html

Also, it could be interesting to have a virtual X greater than 1024x768, as an alternative to the zoom (and the whole screen is rendered at a single stroke).

could you check for an application called xrandr?

xrandr - primitive command line interface to RandR extension

"xrandr -q" should show the setup atm
"xrandr -o [0,1,2,3]" should change the direction

/usr/sbin/fbset shows video modes. Again, DANGER, you do not know if you can fry your display driver.

It seems that displayMgrClient can be used to ask for periodic screen updates (and/or for a single update?)

the xserver-kdrive-fbdev ipkg package on the iLiad seems to have some peculiar patches:

Source: cvs://anoncvs:anoncvs@pdx.freedesktop.org/cvs/xserver;module=xserver;date=20050207 file://kmode.patch;patch=1 file://fbdev-not-fix.patch;pat
ch=1 file://onlyfb.patch;patch=1 file://wacom.patch;patch=1 file://dont-turn-off-grayscale.patch;patch=1

wacom.patch and dont-turn-off-grayscale are new things, I believe.

in 2.4, the terminal emulator rxvt works as installed from Dher suggested package (openzaurus thing). It is only you must choose a font. For instance

rxvt -fn "Nimbus Sans L"
or (having the application in the usb stick)
/mnt/usb/rxvt -fn "Nimbus Mono L"


and the list of available fonts is got using fc-list


So it is possible to get some operative thing without network, but almost blind typing. displayMgrClient -r 10 can be used to get periodic total refresh but it is very disgusting.

The problem to upgrade to 2.5 is that if even the pdf hack is blocked, we can not progress further.
