I have been working through the appreciated (albeit terse) pdf for
the Platform but I continue to run into strange road blocks. I
continue to document my progress:

If anyone has some tips (re: X11 on OpenZaurus) please let me know,
or post to the wiki and I will work from there. I would ask Paul some
more questions directly, but I'm sure he's traveling, and I'm not
sure if he's done with his thesis, so I've been avoiding sending him
questions directly... though I would do anything for an image of the
flash store from the Zaurus that was at WWNC 06.

But for the moment, I'm stumped and stymied... :( I guess my first
task is to make sure that X11 is even working correctly.


(PS is anyone else even trying this?)
