Thanks C-Guys!

I was poking around the driver for their WiFi card to investigate something. Then, I realized that they completely replace the sharp_sdmmc kernel module with their own SD/SDIO stack. So just for fun, I installed it and surprise, I can now read, write, and mount a Sandisk 2 GB SD card. So far, it's been working very reliably.

Now, the catches:

1) It works fine on my C760 (running Cacko 1.12). But, when I tried to install the modules on my 6000, I got kernel oopses. So, it may be very sensitive to the model/kernel that is running. This is not that surprising since C760 is one of the few models listed as supported on their website.

2) vfat filesystems are fine. I had some problems with ext2. I fixed it by reformatting my card with "mke2fs -b 1024 /dev/mmcda1". This driver doesn't seem to like block sizes > 1024.


Anyway, if you want to repeat my experiment, just download and install this ipk, and reboot the Zaurus:

That would make for a really "nice" C3100. 8GB CF to replace microdrive + 8GB CF in external slot + 4GB SD card in SD slot = 20GB total storage internally with no external drives attached to it. rolleyes.gif

just my 2¢

Cool, in a geeky sort of way. Still, those 8 gig CF's and 4 gig SD's probably aren't cheap. I can hook up my old ipod or archos to the Z and get 20G's in one lump. biggrin.gif

Thinking about it... how would you get WiFi on it then... powered hub with a USB dongle?

Or just wait until next year when Hitachi comes out with the promised 20GB microdrive!

I don't plan on using WiFi any time soon, but if a person needed to use the CF slot for WiFi or Bluetooth, wouldn't it be nice to be able to use a 8GB SD card, which remained in the slot at all times? Does anyone know how to "make" the above mentioned driver "adapt" to the C1000, C3000, C3100 series?

IMHO seem to me that only 2.4.18 kernel is supported _not_ 2.4.20 for c1000,3x00 series ...

Oh yes, please. I'd like to try it on a C3000 with Cacko ROM 1.23b1.
Now I only have to find a 2GB card to test with.
