OK, I am having major issues. I just got my C-3200 in the mail today and decided to put OZ/GPE (3.5.4.1) on it. This is my first zaurus but I have used linux for 10 years. I repartitioned and flashed per the wiki and it looked like everything went ok. After I log in, I get all kinds of weird behavior. If I reset the clock to the correct time, it doesn't go (It does say settings saved though) Then it will randomly reset itself by a few hours sometimes taking the hour I specified and sometimes the minute. Whenever I edit the network settings and hit save it says no write access to network configuration. I even tried telling it that users could change all settings. I have tried flashing multiple times with no result. I even recreated the filesystems on hda2 and hda3 and reflashed to no avail.

Any ideas on how to fix this? Is this normal? Is OZ really this unstable?

Are you logged in as root? I had nothing grief running GPE when I was logged in as a regular user. I finally gave up and logged in all the time as root.

Logging in as root fixed some of the errors (no write privileges). Some things like setting the clock are still screwy though. This is supposed to be a stable release correct? I don't understand why the developers would issue a release in which operating as a user is forced (or implied by making you create a user) but does not function correctly.

Might try installing the timezones from the feed. I don't thing all of them are there from the start.

The only "stable" release I've seen is from sharp.

Have you tried just logging out and logging back in on GPE as the clock is not updated until you have done this.

I found that GPE required a user to do a lot more configuration from editing files via the command line than the other ROMs or even OPIE, but I loved the way you could install more powerful applications such as abiwiord and gnumeric.

For GPE I had to configure the wifi access by manually editing editing the following file /etc/network/interfaces

Today I have the best of both worlds as I have installed OPIE and GPE on the same device, and recommend this combination.
