Hello to all!

I'm still here too (with near no free time) and my C3000 still boots Arch, Cacko and pdaXii13 beta3 from time to time...

Glad to read i'm not alone rolleyes.gif cool.gif

Another Arch user, that's great to hear smile.gif As you can see we are still here!

I'm considering spinning up this distro again as a side project. How many folks are still active in the Zaurus community?

I am still around! I have a SL-C1000 with Cacko, and I would love to try something else. Alas, I cannot find pdaxrom anywhere! Any pointers are appreciated...

Hi Pedro,

you can find all the pdaXrom releases and feeds inside InSearchOf's repository:

http://distro.ibiblio.org/pdaxrom/download/

Note that the beta1/3/4 releases are based on kernel 2.4, the later r121/197/198 ones on 2.6.

Actually, Beta 4 has the 2.6 kernel as well. If you are interested in a bug fixed stable version of pdaXROM with a 2.4 kernel; I would recommend pdaxii13. You can find it here.

What are the odds of my checking back in?

I still have mine, but I haven't used it in some time.

Hi!

What Zaurus do you own? In case it's a SL-C1000 or 3x00, you might want to give Arch Linux ARM a try, the latest kernel and rootfs for Zaurus have been released last May.

It's a 1000. I'll have to go check that out, thanks!

I still have various Zaurus SL-C3000, SL-C1000, SL-C860 and an SL-C5600.

I tried all the distros and found pdaXrom was the best of the lot except that it didn't suspend power - unless I was doing something wrong*.
It would run through the battery very quickly!

If this one thing was fixed I would use it again.

At the moment I'm experimenting with Arch Linux.


*I have since found that 'apm --suspend' seems to do the job, using r121 build on my SL-C860.

On pdaXII I usually triggered the suspend via the menu, and resumed using the Home key, and AFAIR never had any problems, though other people have reported it to be flakey:

Have you tried weeXpc? I have not installed it yet, it should be a more polished version of pdaXrom, and its still available for download (I have recently been in touch with its author):
