"The report of my death is an exaggeration" - to quote Mark Twain here.

There is much work done that is not apparent.The nightly builds are an excellent example where you can see that many small things have been done, though they do not justify a release from my point of view. The ChangeLog shows the details on those improvements.

Not sure if OpenPMA is dead as I've been talking to nice people on the IRC channel ... About UMPC you could check the Raon Everrun ( ), much cheaper than the Sony, 12 hours battery life, about same size, bigger screen ... About the french I am interested as well as I am french too ...

Are we dead? I have been intrested in open pma since the begining but had little to contibute so I have been standing back and watching but there dosent seem to be any progress I love my pma but wish the 605 was open if so maby i would get one. once I can afford it I will probably transition over to a sony umpc though. Anyone know if the french are still active?

-- As I see the user Fenix has done quite a lot of changes to many pages including this one. Would be helpful to know at what he is aiming - because what he tries apparently doesn't work in many places. Introducing yourself by putting some info about you on your user page would be nice too...

You are right :)

I was trying to get Interwiki_linking working to have simple links to wikipedia (but seems you forget to enable it).

Note: I have put a simple presentation in my user page

--Fenix 09:07, 6 March 2006 (CET)

It was not forgotten. It was intentionally left off. We might turn it on in the future.

--dm8tbr 13:00, 6 March 2006 (CET)

Ok :( so it's better put full links (instead of having brokens links)

--Fenix 22:08, 6 March 2006 (CET)

I've checked Interwiki linking. Its now turned on. I had to add wikipedia as a target to [1] please use this page [2] as a reference when adding interwiki links and always use the preview function to see if the page turns out like you wanted it to be. just my 0,02€

--dm8tbr 09:26, 10 March 2006 (CET)

Cool :) thx a lot. Now it looks a lot better

Link to download section (by 2beers)

1. I miss a link (on the left side - where the main menu is) called "downloads/software" I accidentally dropped in at your download page - via a link on I tried to find a "download section" here some days ago - but i gave up as there seems no link (if there is one, it's hidden in some sub menu, i guess?)

2. How about organizing the download section a bit different - or better said - just in the same way the rest of the wiki is? I mean like

-> a link on the left side that takes the user to the download section - wich should look just like the wiki itself - with the same menu on the left side, with the differnt software u can download & of course with editable description of the software u can download.

The link i found ( takes u to a simplyfied list of software where i can just guess what the software does.

Like i.e. "korganizer" - is it a calendar? Or maybe a calendar with a phonebook? What different views does it have? Can i also use it to organize a mobile? Can i synchronize it with mozilla software/KDE software/outlook, u get me there i guess?

best regards, thanks for your attention!

[edit] What archos models are supported besides the original PMA400?

(vovkav) 09:09, 23 March 2007 (CET): What models of original archos multimedia players are supported besides PMA400? Is AV500 supported (I am not sure if it's the same thing as PMA400)? I think, there should be clear indicition at the main page or at a special article linked directly from main page, which currently sold archos models are supported and which are not.

--dm8tbr 12:01, 23 March 2007 (CET): The Main_Page pretty much says it already:

 openPMA is an open-source project that aims to implement an improved operating system for the Archos Personal Media Assistant, short "PMA".

As there is exactly one product to date that was tagged "Personal Media Assistant" this shouldn't be ambiguous?

There might be openPMA for the generation 4 devices (604wifi, 604, 504, 404, 704) at some point in the future, but this still needs a lot of background work to even have the possibilty to start working on an own firmware for those devices.

So I take it OpenPMA is dead? I bought a PMA400 a few months back, and just finished installing the most recent version OpenPMA and was impressed. Is there ever going to be a final release (possibly that includes the changes dm8tbr mentioned), or is this all we'll ever see out of OpenPMA? And is there anybody else that has made a custom firmware that is still being updated (or has been updated recently)?


There is not much momentum at the moment that's right. I recommend installing an nightly build. Right now they are nice and stable. Not much is missing for a 0.3 - The thing that's missing the most is time right now. If someone would give me 5 days of time just for openPMA...

[edit] in 2009 version 0.3?

I hope that in 2009 the 0.3 will come out;-) Will great! Thanks

anything more about it? i´m wishing the open PMA tortoise....

[edit] No teme

Hello from Russia! Can I quote a post in your blog with the link to you?

If your website is related to archos products you're welcome. If it isn't please don't post links here.
