I assume that you are checking /var/log/syslog to ensure that you are
not getting any messages about that.  On my Ultra 1, I had messages
about "thermal shutdown" until I added another small fan.

There is a port of CDE to linux, so you could in theory run the CDE
calendar client against the rpc.cmsd you have running.

Aside from that, I only know of groupware packages that use a web
server interface.
