Akos, the darkice developer, said a while ago that Darkice should be
able to be compiled and run on the Sharp Zaurus. I have just tried this
but no luck, it just returns 'cannot execute binary'...

i have ogglibs and vorbis libs installed on the zaurus so if anyone
knows
anyway to stream using ogg on a strongarm pda, i would be most grateful to
know more

i will also try cross compiling for the zaurus Qtopia environment but i
first need to know more about how to make '.pro' files...if there is
anyone that can point me at a resource for this too, that would be great
:)

in the meantime i have had zaurus using 'zmeeting' which does instant
messanger type 'realtime' voice messenging and the quality seems quite ok,
and it interacts with gnomemeeting really well...looking forward to the
possibility of streaming ogg though....
