I hope you don't mind, I cc'ed the Pd list since I think there are  
others interested in this info as well.

If you are working directly on the Palm TX, think of a the Palm TX as  
a regular linux box, and the SD card is just a disk.  I don't really  
think its possible to get much patching done on the device itself.  I  
write the patches on my laptop, then copy them to the card to run them  
on the Palm TX.

I think the wifi is working, but it is still raw, so you have to set  
it up in pure command line style.

I have some images with Pd and Python on them but I haven't released  
anything yet.  I can post some of the test builds somewhere if you are  
interested in trying them.
