The librt ipkg you made is busted :D, but yes it is the format the Z uses.
zcat complains about it not being a gzip format (did you bzip it?) and an
unexpected EOF on stdin.

It's only 7k on the webserver, are you sure you didn't get any transfer
The libsdl bit has me a bit confused. I guess it's a question of
installation settings, since the other one is working.
You might want to dissect both packages for differences.

hope it helps, it's very nice to have responsive devs to talk to :)

The problem here was that the tarbal was built with the YOPY port in
mind. I just redid the packaging and updated the Zaurus page to provide
an *.ipk for librt. Could you test it?

Or is my assumption wrong that the Zaurus uses the ipkg tool to install

This shouldn't be the case, but you never know. The libSDL hasn't
changed in ages since it was reported to work. So please do try to find
out what the problem was, maybe the missing librt?
