Available Consoles

This page is meant to be a resource for people wanting to know what console applications are available for their particular distro and model, and where to find them.

Please help by filling in what you know about built-in terminal applications, names of console apps available for your ROM, and URLs for the IPKs if you know of any.

Also please modify the outline if you see something that should be split (such as I did with Sharp) or combined (such as all flavors of a particular ROM if that is appropriate).

Reviews and How-To's will be on a separate page in the Wiki and Handbook. Once you see which consoles are available for your ROM, then you can check them out in the reviews section.

the available consoles for

the available consoles for SharpRom and Cacko are the same and compatible. The only difference is that Cacko has one installed by default. The cxx00 consoles also are the same as the 5x00 ones...

all the X11 based distro (pdaXrom/pdaXii13, openzaurus/hentges, angstrom) pretty much have the same range of terminals (xterm, rxvt, mrxvt, aterm, multi-aterm, mlterm, fbterm, gnome-terminal, pterm, eterm, ...) except they each have their own packages because of package dependencies and formats...

hentges has the same terminals as openzaurus since it is openzaurus. however, openzaurus comes in two flavours, OPIE and GPE which use different consoles, GPE is X11 based while OPIE is qtopia based....

Thanks, menaie! does that

Thanks, menaie! does that mean that hentges also comes in both OPIE and GPE?

also, about cxx00 and 5x00 consoles, even if consoles are same name, aren't there hardware/kernel differences that mean an sl5500 console won't run on a C3200 sharp/cacko? Or is the problem with portability just with backwards rather than forwards compatibility?

I still want to provide people with as clear a list of specific possibilities, so if anyone can take the time to fill in specifics for any of the above in the wiki page, please do so. Smiling

Oh, which is installed in Cacko? [ edit: whoops, I see the qkonsole entry is already there for cacko]

thanks,
