I have a Zaurus SL-6000L and I tried to install vlc on it. I took the 
packages from the download page and they downloaded fine, but I am unable 
to install the librt_2.1.3_arm.ipk package, I get this error:

bash-2.05# ipkg install librt_2.1.3_arm.ipk

zcat: librt_2.1.3_arm.ipk: not in gzip format

zcat: stdin: unexpected end of file
ipkg_install_file: ERROR unpacking control.tar.gz from librt_2.1.3_arm.ipk

On another thread someone had the same problem 
(http://www.via.ecp.fr/via/ml/vlc-devel/2004-10/msg00175.html) and he had 
rebuilt the archive to get things working. Could somebody tell me how to 
get this package fixed so I could test the vlc? According to the download 
page you're looking for a package maintainer to Zaurus. I don't think I'm 
right man for the job, but I will try to help to develop the Zaurus port. 
Just let me know what needs to be done and I'll try to help. I have 
little coding skills but I'm quite familiar otherwise with Linux admining 
and compiling software.
