Major bugs:

[Hacked kdrive in x11-image to overcome the problem, still an issue in opie-image] 1. frame buffer (a.k.a, screen corruption or the famous yellow vertical lines) : occurs "occasionally" with 2.6.23 kernel, much better than "often" with 2.6.17 kernel OE bug 490

thanks for that update!

p.s. what's the max SD/MMC memory card size it will support? 1GB? 2GB? 4GB non-sdhc? SDHC?

I don't suppose anyone's cracked the problem of getting WPA to work? Last I knew, only the wlan-ng driver worked and it didn't support anything other than WEP!

speculatrix: and this will rather never happen.

Wlan-ng driver is written in so ugly style that it will never get into mainline kernel, prism2 on usb is something which is not available on market and probably most of it's users moved to other solutions when wanted WPA (as bonus they got 802.11g chipsets).

sadly, I came to accept long ago that tosa's wifi was never going to support any decent cryptographic standard, but I hoped that just possibly there'd be a glimmer of hope.

still there's always openvpn, which probably a better solution than rather crap idea of WPA-TKIP anyway!

For past 2,3 years I have been using PDAXRom 1.1 Beta2 on my lovely Tosa. It does everything I need it to do: play mp3 and avi, light browsing, abiword, dictionary, and viewing pdf.

I was so afraid to broke my perfectly tweaked ROM and I stopped doing any update at all. After all those time, I finally decided to move on and started experimenting again.

I guess I will give Angsrom a try and see what happens!!

if you take a NAND backup, you can go back to pdaXrom without any hassle.

r8 release from the Angstrom stable branch has been released. No critical change from r2. The next big thing is to bump kernel to 2.6.24. That should solve or remedy a bunch of kernel related problems.
status updated.

thanks, I will dig out my Tosa and see how far I get . When Angstrom is good enough and I can use my Tosa more, I will get a new battery. I'd like to use it as an in-car media player (with a wireless hard drive) and to run tomtom,!

Please skip r8 and test r9 with 2.6.24 kernel.
