Because I was curious, and because it has Python, I figured I'ld give it a
try, and see what happened...
The results are:

# 1/ The python installation from the installer ("unjailed iphone") does not come with the pyexpat module.
So, that's a little surprising.
I tried to install easy_install, to try an "easy_install pyexpat", but because I'm missing a Makefile, that fails with the following:
# python ez_setup.py Downloading http://pypi.python.org/packages/2.5/s/setuptools/setuptools-0.6c7-py2.5.egg Traceback (most recent call last): File "ez_setup.py", line 229, in <module> main(sys.argv[1:]) File "ez_setup.py", line 163, in main from setuptools.command.easy_install import main File "build/bdist.linux-i686/egg/setuptools/__init__.py", line 2, in <module> File "build/bdist.linux-i686/egg/setuptools/extension.py", line 2, in <module> File "build/bdist.linux-i686/egg/setuptools/dist.py", line 5, in <module> File "build/bdist.linux-i686/egg/setuptools/command/__init__.py", line 13, in <module> File "/usr/lib/python2.5/distutils/command/bdist.py", line 29, in <module> class bdist (Command): File "/usr/lib/python2.5/distutils/command/bdist.py", line 37, in bdist "(default: %s)" % get_platform()), File "/usr/lib/python2.5/distutils/util.py", line 78, in get_platform cfgvars = get_config_vars() File "/usr/lib/python2.5/distutils/sysconfig.py", line 493, in get_config_vars func() File "/usr/lib/python2.5/distutils/sysconfig.py", line 352, in _init_posix raise DistutilsPlatformError(my_msg) distutils.errors.DistutilsPlatformError: invalid Python installation: unable to open /usr/lib/python2.5/config/Makefile (No such file or directory)
And that was the end of that. Interesting, though...
Oh, yeah, and I ended up going with the iPod Touch (hereafter referred to as the iTouch) to replace my Palm TX. It's not the perfect device, as the above stack traces show, but it's pretty good, and a fair bit closer than the Palm TX was.
