You want to use your Psion NetBook, Revo PDA or Handheld PC together with a Linux based computer? Here are links to compatibility and configuration guides about Linux and PDAs manufactured by Psion. The general resource section at the bottom, contains links to useful Linux utilities (mostly available under GPL), community efforts, HOWTOs and FAQs. Have you written a report yourself?

Applications and Drivers


XPsiTouch(http://www.muru.com/linux/psion/xpsitouch/) enables the touch screen buttons around the LCD panel for X-Windows running Linux on the Psion.


Proboot(http://www.muru.com/linux/psion/proboot/) allows boot Linux directly from a CompactFlash card on Psion 5mx Pro handheld computers. Proboot does not work with the standard Psion 5mx, or Revo, please use ArLo bootloader instead.

Arlo BootLoader

Arlo(http://www.yipton.demon.co.uk/content.html#ArLo) is the boot loader that is needed to boot Linux kernels on psion devices. As of version 1.2, Arlo supports the Series 5, 5mx and Series 7. The Psion Revo (plus), 5mx Pro and Netbook will probably work, but that needs confirming.


PsiConv(http://software.frodo.looijaard.name/psiconv/) , EPOC32 PSION 5(MX) file format data conversion utilities for Linux.
