This is a frontend to google maps.
Copy them to /opt/Qtopia/qpegps/maps and edit the maps.txt found there.
So you can easily add new maps etc from your desktop PC.
mv /opt/Qtopia/qpegps/maps /media/
This will move the directory and it's contents to /media
Now you can either link the old directory to the new one:
ln -s /media/maps /opt/Qtopia/qpegps/maps
(This will link the directory to the old location so qpeGPS still can find the maps.)
Or you click away the error messages upon start and go to the config and choose the right directory from the file dialogue.
go to the console and enter:
rm -rf /root/Corsair ln -s /media/Corsair /root/Corsair
If you installed Corsair for the first time there is no Corsair folder on the FAT32 partition. You'll need to do:
You're done! Corsair will now find its config files in the Corsair folder on the FAT32 partition.
mkdir -p /progfs/etc/rc.d/init.d cp /etc/rc.d/init.d/K90samba /progfs/etc/rc.d/init.d/S90samba
You'll now be able to access the PMA HDD as a network share.
You can play mp3 and avi files with you PMA using wireless NFS connection.
assumes you have your mp3 files stored in /home/Music:
Restart NFS. This varies between distros. In general, as root
On the PMA using the terminal app, create an empty directory under /media. For example:
Then issue the mount command for your host using it's IP address. In this example it's 126.96.36.199
mount -t nfs 192.168.2.29:/home/Music /media/Music/mingus
Wait for the prompt to return. It can take several minutes, so play a game, listen to a couple of tunes and keep checking back.
When the prompt returns issue an ls to your mounted directory. You should see your host's files. The files will be accessible from the PMA video & audio apps.

The PMA has a relatively limited range of audio and video codecs that it supports although the openPMA project has done some sterling work in adding new codecs.
As a result, it may be necessary to convert or transcode media you have to a format that is supported by the PMA.
Andrew's site has some tutorials in the Getting Started section.
I've used Switch Plus Sound File Conversion Software to convert FLAC files to WAV.
I've used dBpowerAMP Music Converter (dMC) to convert APE files to WAV.
Any Video Converter is a freeware program that can work with many formats. Xvid output is supported.
AVS Video Converter is supposed to be able to convert amongst other things WMV to Xvid-encoded AVI. I've not tried it myself, but a trial version can be downloaded for testing.
FLACs can also be converted from the command line like so:
flac -d *.flac
Transcode is excellent for transcoding video files to xvid-enabled AVIs and is also included in Wolvix Hunter. A simple example command line:
transcode -i blah.mpg -o blah.avi -y xvid
Kyle "greenfly" Rankin wrote an excellent Linux Multimedia Hacks book which has some PMA-specific tips.
