I don't think compiling gnokii myself will help me much now doesn't it?

A big problem is that i don't have a linux system around, but this will
change in the next few days or so.

The Zaurus is a strongarm device. Maybe this is the reason.

Where is the difference between ptya0 and ptyp0 (symlink possible)?
And is there a way to create ptypx devices?
makedev seems to be missing on the zaurus too, but i will search a bit.

And in general: any idea how i can get gnokii to run ;-)
