Also, take a look at the Monochrome Icons on KDE-Look. This may be the best default icon theme for iLiad Qtopia.

How faster is the refresh? Did you tell the iRex this? Maybe they are interested.

This sure looks interesting...!!!

I am unfortunately not a programmer. I also don't know much about Linux.
However, I always like to hear the words "fast and easier" and if both oth them come together I get a nice and warm feeling spreading through my body...

Just one question...if you are so Linux-development savvy, then would it perhaps make sense to look at the "Linux Kernel Update" project first? The way I understand it, the current "old" Linux Kernel is placing a lot of restrictions on the Iliad's capabilities. Maybe creating a "new" Kernel (iRex is offering support for that project) first and then implementing all those wonderful changes there would make sense?

Whatever you do, you're sure going to make a lot of us Iliad users very happy indeed!!!

Yes, I read about that...sounds like it might be good news, but I'm not sure. Who knows where the development priorities for iRex lie at the moment...might not be in our best interest...

Maybe creating a "new" Kernel (iRex is offering support for that project) first and then implementing all those wonderful changes there would make sense?
a) 'all the wonderful changes' will work regardless of the kernel version
b) can you really tell me what the benefits would be if there was a 2.6 kernel? (Yes, I do know the differences, but, for the current iLiad, I really do not see the point...)

About 'linux savvy': I can do both kernel/driver development AND application development (and GUI design and GUI development and a couple of other specialisations... (nope, don't like to specialize in ONE thing...)), but right now I want my iLiad to do the things this project will provide...

As to answer b) myself: I hear most people speak highly of the new power management features the 2.6 kernel will bring, one problem right there: not much has changed for the PXA255 and the changes that are in the 2.6 can easily be back-ported.... The rest of the improvements of the 2.6 kernel are mainly better support for newer hardware which is especially needed if you own a desktop computer or laptop with the latest (and maybe changing) hardware, not for an embedded device with a set of known and never-changing hardware... (is there really a piece of hardware in the iLiad that doesn't work (correctly) because of the 'old' kernel?)

But, like CommanderROR said: will I have the time to work on this project or do they have other plans for the future of the iLiad software? (probably the latter...)

Yup, nice icon-theme, thanks for the tip!

@Aenea

I don't know much about Linux Kernels (or anything to with Linux actually...^^) but I had heard about the Power-Saving features, and since I'm the official specialist "Startup-Time and Power-Saving" complaints that was my main reason for suggesting this.
In Addition, I have heard complaints about missing support for certain features in the "old" Kernel the Iliad uses at the moment from some of our other developers, but really can't give you any details without going deep into the archives of mobileread and searching for them by hand...

If you tell me that there are serious drawbacks to staying with the old Kernel, then I certainly won't contradict you...

Hehe, still going nicely I'd say, nothing ready for a release though and that could still take a while! These things are not done in a weekend or two... With all the bells and whistles I want in it it will take more like a month or two, three if something takes longer as planned (and it always does )

Well, hehe, I got a reply from iRex today, they are looking for people with more Linux experience than me, haha, ah well, he probably forgot I was hacking around in the Linux kernel when he was, what, 12?

Sorry to hear that...but there is a silver lining for all of us here...more good stuff from free, open-source developers, all for the public good...

btw...do you think you can do anything to improve the battery life of the Iliad? Just my personal standard-request...sorry....I just have to try...again and again...
