Friends,

I just switched from pdaxrom to Cacko in order to get my bluetooth (an ambicom BT2000C card) working ...

I was truly pleased with the new cacko release rom !!!

Anyway, I got TWO wifi CF cards ... one is a trendnet but I think it is kind of broken, as I plug it in and only give me some minutes of service before led BLINKS once and zaurus gets freezed.

So I grabbed my OLD AMBICOM CF WIFI CARD ... only to find that cacko does not recognize it !!

I added it to the CONFIG file , under /etc/pcmcia but it is still not recognized !

Is it right ? is that the file where I got to add the card ?

Any suggestions ?

Regards,

Enrique

I Plug it in and it does not "appears" on the taskbar.

BTW... I cannot find it in the config textfile ...

I do a cardctrl ident and ... there it is !

If you get a working config please post what you added and which file you added it to etc. We can add it to the next hotfix.

Thanks!

FIXED ...

problem was in /etc/pcmcia/hostap_cs.conf !!

The ambicom card had an entry but it had commented out with the "#" the manfid row ...

I uncommented it, and commented the VERSION row.

This came with the cacko 1.22 / hotfix 1.22a installation ... I mean, I Did not comment the manfid ...

Now works like a charm...

BTW ... is there any GUI application avail for cacko 1.22 / 1.22a to search for bluetooths or transfering files, etc. (I got the phone, and all I can do is use it as a modem, but on the other side, from the phone side, I can transfer an image thru bluetooth and it gets stored in the zaurus. I am wondering how can I do the inverse)....

Cheers,

Enrique.

Very strange, I wonder how my card worked then... Can you post your current entry here so that I can check. And output of cardctl ident too. I wonder if there avene different revisions of that card.

Unfortunately, none at the moment. But you can use obexftp and obextool utilities from console to transfer data over bluetoth. To send PIM data, you can do a little trick: start sending it via IRDA and then look into /tmp (or /home/tmp, don't remember) - you'll find a vCard or vCal file exctarcted from PIM data, which you can save a copy and then send via bluetooth
