I have a hw6515 as well and am hereby volunteering my device for Linux testing:)

I'm an IT consultant in CRM/Enterprise asset management and been using Linux off and on for many years...not really a Linux newbie but need to get my skills refreshed.

hello,

I have a bricked 6515 with the gsm part dead after a failed rom upgrade.
So my 6515 is very open for betatesting...

Do you know where to find tools & files to go to linux ?
What are the limitations at this moment ?
and how to manage the square screen ?

Thanks

i know that it's years after the last post - however - FYI tried the wayback machine to get handhelds.org archive of linux resources for ipaQs - 6515 on the compatibility list, boots linux, but status of gui unknown

AND site reports that familiar does not install on this model.

I'm going to try the kernel and pkgs for the 4700 which is based on the same processor...just for fun.
