I have not been following this group and there is a lot to search, but is there a "beta1 fix annoying issues guide or site"?

The good:

Install was easy, just like Cacko.
Getting my WiFi and Socket Rev L BT working was easy.
PAN networking to my 3G phone was also easy. Avg speed is about 320 kbits with scp, 400 kbits with wget.
Feed has all the goodies I need. Installing them now.
GUI faster than X/Qt.

The bad:

Window manager not as efficient as others. Looking for recommendations to get me started quickly. I was using blackbox with X/Qt. Replacement WM should have links to all apps. Unsure how this works with pdaXrom. Perhaps it is just a setup issue. Adding the task applet helped a lot.

The ugly:

Getting random blank screen and suspend. I have shutoff both with the taskbar applet, but it still happens. UPDATE: Fixed, there is a conflict with the blanking applet and the power settings. I had to kill the blanking applet.

The very ugly, this could be a deal breaker:

Using BT PAN with Socket Rev L I get corrupted packets. I know it is not my phone because I do not have this problem with Win/XP + Phone 3G or Cacko + Ambicom BT. I know I have 2 variables here. I will test Ambicom BT later. That may prove nothing since they use different BT stack components. UPDATE: pdaXrom + Ambicom BT, no problem. Is there a newer BlueZ for beta1?

Looking for a little direction here. My top reason to switch to pdaXrom was getting my Socket BT to work.

Thanks.

For a window manager, I'd try Fluxbox. It's fast and looks nice. If you add in VDesk you can have wallpaper and desktop shortcuts. You can make desktop shortcuts for any app you want, and they'll all be placed in the right-click menu if you run "fluxbox-generate_menu." Torsmo adds in a nice system monitor. Look at the Fluxbox ultimate configuration thread for details.

For fixes and such, look at this site:

http://www.thesounddesign.com/zaurus/beta3.htm

It's for Beta 3, but most, if not all, of it should be relevant.

Hope this helps.

I've never seen or heard about that issue before.

P.S. It might help somebody (not necessarily me) to post what Zaurus model you have and where the symlinks are going to (SD, CF, etc.).

Yes, of course. I installed BlueZ and other apps to /mnt/user, symlinks were create for the libs from /mnt/user/usr/lib to /usr/lib, some of them get lost on reboot. Usually the *.[0-9] links.

The fix that comes to mind is reflashing and making one big root partition. As another thought, you could simply never reboot biggrin.gif.

Perhaps a ldconfig -v will do also. I mean you'll get more info about the libs and problematic links.

also i found that if you have installed applications in /mnt/user then you need to do
ipkg-link mount /mnt/user
during startup for the links to be recreated.
