Well, I took the plunge and installed OZ with the Opie image

I found it really quite straightforward to install - with the included instructions on http://openzaurus.org. After installing it, I need to say it's faster, the gui is more polished, the included apps are more comprehensive, than the standard Sharp ROM. I don't use PIM apps much, so ymmv.

Anyway, while it is a development build, it not as unusable as you might think from reading this thread. Wireless was the most difficult thing to get working - after fiddling about for an hour, I've got a setup. Details at http://www.oesf.org/forums/inde...indpost&p=62654

I installed and am happy with Opera6, Konsole, and opieftp. There seem to be a lot of great utilities for opie.

Anyway I have a few questions / problems:
1. Can i reconfigure power manager so it doesn't sleep as quickly with battery?

2. I can't get open-tetrix to work -- after install, clicking on the icon from the desktop causes a "could not locate application tetrix" error

3. How do I send control characters to the console?

4. I think the install is 32-32 (mnt/ram). Is there a way to reconfigure this 64-0 in the future? Or is there a reason for the 32-32?

5. All the games have really small displays - like pacman, solitaire, word game, etc. Is there any way to increase the screen size before I go blind?

1. I don't know how the 3.5.2 release does with power management, but I compiled a newer version awhile ago that I tested and everything like the power suspending and backlight function worked great. So if you can wait for the next release I think the power stuff will be working. Check out the Light's and Power setting anyways because I seem to remember suspending to work. Should be able to set the timing how you like.

2. Never herd of textrix, but you may try to opening the icon file to see what it's trying to call. I think they're in /opt/QtPalmtop/apps/*. If it installed it's binary into /opt/QtPalmtop/bin and that isn't in your path that could be your problem.

3. I haven't found a way to send control characters yet, even using the opie keyboard. It has to do with how everything is mapped in the kernel and Opie. If you figure something out let me know.

4. I don't understand the RAM thing either. I would expect to have one 64MB swap partition setup. I guess maybe there are two 32MB SDRAM chips inside that would explain it being split up (just guessing!). It doesn't look like it uses it for anything though, it just mounts them as temporary storage that nothing uses. I'm using GPE now, and the system information says I have 64MB of memory, and it's using a good portion of it. I didn't take a lot of time to investigate Opie to see what was going on.

5. Don't know about the screen size.

Nevarrie, at zaurus.grantclan.org do you have a how to on setting up a flash from a homebuilt (oe) image?
I'd love to flash from my externe-kernel sharp setup to something feshly compiled and back, but have no idea how to use the oe built jiff image. I cn't solve the 6k harware issues, but I cn definitely check progress blink.gif

the updater.sh that is on openzaurus.org does not easily allow for custom roms...my updater.sh makes it alittle easier to do this..you can get my updater.sh Here.

The tar file contains the tools dir and and updater.sh file. You would place the tools dir and the updater.sh in the root of your sd, or cf card. This updater.sh give you the option to put the .jffs2 file in tools/opie/, tools/gpe/, tools/pdaxroom/ or the root of the sd or cf card. This is how I flash between all of my roms as needed. I usually keep my most recent opie in tools/opie/, my most recent gpe on tools/gpe, my most resent grantrom in the root of my SD card, and I keep the sharp rom files in the root of my CF card. The menu system of the updater.sh allows you to choice which rom you are wanting to install except for the sharp rom(Requires doing the Q + T + Reset)...

Hope that helps...

Grant rom is my custom rom. It started out as a striped down version of OpenZaurus GPE that included bitchx, firefox and the full version of vim. My current version is justa bootstrap with bitchx, screen, openssh, and vim that statys at console all the time and uses a usb keyboard. It has been my attempt to uses OE to make a rom that included the tools I wanted and took out the tools I would never use. It is in oe so others could uses it but it is not very usable last time I built it.

Since I have not work with OE and OZ since before christmas I can not say this is current.

Last time I built a copy of 3.5.2 I had to go change the defconfig-tosa to so that the CONFIG_USB_* stuff was set to m so that it would build the modules I wanted for the keyboard, mouse, jumpdrive, usb cd-rw, and keyspan usb to serial adapter. Once I had them built I just installed the kernel-module-usb* that I wanted.

I have my kernel modules at http:///zaurus.thegrantclan.org/download/z...openzaurus/feed for both 2.4.18-rmk7-pxa3-embedix-r16 and 2.4.18-rmk7-pxa3-embedix-r24. not sure if either of those are for the kernel used with 3.5.2.

thanks for the link. at this point, i might try shoehorning the modules into my "fastkernel" setup. The OZ camera module worked there... so maybe i'll get lucky again smile.gif

any luck with the "shoehorning". I tried, but those ipks won't install, neither by the ipkg or the ipkg-new for opie. Does anybody have those usbmouse.o and usbkbd.o file? So I can manually drop into the appropriate directory.I can't resist the temptation of usbmouse and usbkbd for long. If I can't find those modules soon, I'd probably bread down and restore the stock kernel ohmy.gif
