Hello,

the TuxMobil News digest for March 2004[1] has good news
for Linux PDA, mobile phone and laptop users. Here is an
extract of the most important or most interesting messages.

Werner Heuser


|=| A new issue (0.17)[2] of PocketWorkStation for Linux PDAs
has been released. Want to run a full Debian GNU/Linux operating environment
on your Linux PDA? Want to switch between Qtopia and X11 whenever you
like without rebooting or needing to stop any of your X11 applications?
Give Pocketworkstation a try. Runs completely out of a single directory
(a 256MB SD card is ideal), no re-flashing or modification of
the existing operating system is required.

|=| Synaptics touchpad driver (0.13)[3] and laptop_mode for Kernel 2.6.5[4]
are now available. The laptop_mode patch extends the battery life of
your laptop.

|=| Mobile Adhoc Networks under Linux are on the go. This months has
brought new issues of: Qolyester an OLSR protocol for wireless
ad hoc networks[5]. UniK OLSR daemon is an Optimized Link State Routing
protocol for MANETs (0.4.3)[6]. Another approach is made by
the AODV-UU - routing protocol for ad-hoc networks (0.7.2)[7].
