I have somehow deleted or otherwise lost files/drivers necessary for the wireless network device...maybe other devices. I looked at the Zaurus FAQ list (unofficial) and found a couple of close possible solutions, however I don't know how to find which files I need to restore/revert back to. I am also uncertain if the SL-6000L uses the same files or structure as described:

I used the following to revert/restore the home/zaurus directories:

"You can revert back to the factory default copy of any file that comes with the Zaurus by running the following commands as root in the terminal:"

cd /
tar xvf /root/.home_default.tar home/whatever_the_rest_of_the_path_is

Based on the above, I did the following command while a su:
cd /
tar xvf /root/.home_default.tar home/zaurus

That seemed to work and gave a listing of the restored files. However this did not change or re-enable the wifi abilities...or the icon.

When I look at trying the next possible solution (for devices), I don't know what files to specify, in this instance, the wireless device.

"You can revert back to the default copy of a device file by running the following commands as root in the terminal:"

cd /
tar xvf /root/.dev_default.tar dev/the_device_file

My question(s) are: 1) is there an easy way to find a listing of files for possible restoration, and 2) is there an easy way to just put the SL-6000 back to it's default state?

I intend to backup everything when I restabilize the sl-6000 so that I hopefully don't loose this stuff again!

You can download the zip file and retore your zaurus - see the pinned topic in the "6000 General" forum "How to restore zaurus to original state". There's a link to the zip, and reflash instructions.

I've done this myself and know it works.

Save away any setting you want to retain. You'll need to reinstall terminal, btw.
