As I said ... there are only binary modules for 2.4.18 kernel :-). No 2.4.20 so Cxx00 series wont work. They should recmpile their module also for 2.4.20 kernel ... Anyone can ask them to do it?

Can anyone translate this:
Linux Zaurus direction user's manual (instruction manual) Renewal 2004/10/22 (Ver1.0)(PDF:1,105KB)

http://www.c-guys.net/cgi-bin/download/dow...product=link11b

I tried google to convert it to html, but google couldn't access the PDF to convert it. If google can convert it, then I could use google to translate it.

oh :-( I initially thought my Z would run a 2.4.18, but you are right, it's 2.4.20. So no chance it seems... at least not yet.

DrWowe: This is AMAZING!

Any chance you could try reading/writing some files to your 2GB card and give us a sense of the speed? One of the problems with the old driver is that every SD card was put into MMC mode -- I believe -- and that made the cards much slower.

Here is a very rough translation in RTF format. I have a text format, but it is harder to read than this RTF file. I broke it up by page numbers, which are at the end of each (paragraph, or group of text).

Horray! I'm now using my Transcend 2GB SD card. Thanks for making this discovery!

I noticed a problem. It was a critical issue for me.
Can someone verify? If you suspend, the card becomes unstable. I tried to copy a file to the card after a suspend/resume and ended up with IO errors. It happend with either the 1GB or the 2GB ( I would suspect with any other) and with vfat and worse with ext2.
If you create an ext2 filesystem and you suspend/resume the card disapears although it shows as mounted using the mount command.
I tried messing with the sdiomgr and sdio scripts. Didn't work.

C860 with orignal sharp ROM.

This is because the sdiomgr script tries to pass vfat specific mount options, and the ext2 code rejects it and fails. (run dmesg and you can see this)

I fixed by removing all the mount options except for async from the script.

I noticed the same problem. Mine is formated FAT16. I determined that the problem was related to fastload applications on the SD card, which made it so that the SD card could not be unmounted during a suspend (the disk is in use error prevents the successful unmount). My calendar app and zten (which accessed dictionaries on the SD card) were set to fastload. Once I turned off fastload for these, I did not have the suspend/resume problem anymore.
If DrWowe was able to fix this by editing the sdiomgr script, could he post his edited script here? I would like to test it on my system.

So anything linking to the card will cause this I guess. I have some PSC catalogs linked to the card.
And Pocket Workstation is going to be a problem. Runs great though. Its a little slower, but not much.
I'll try to fiddle with the scripts again.

I literally just edited one line. It's the one that sets a shell variable with a bunch of mount options.

- Interesting. This implies just anyone with the right know-how could replace the sharp sd card driver and enable larger SD card usage, and perhaps SDIO-like capability.
