In case you didn't notice the latest kernels built on the i386 now contain SD storage support for some SD controllers including the Ricoh 5C822 popular in certain laptops. (including my Dell Inspiron XPS/2 smile.gif).

Uwe is working on SDIO support now so it seems to be reasonable to expect that we may possibly have proper SDIO support on the Zaurus when the SD support eventually gets enabled.

In a discussion on undeadly.org, I entered a polite plea to Uwe to look into providing support. Would have happily loaned one of my zaurus' if Tokyo weren't so far from Calgary :-)

Further down in the discussion, there was a hopeful note:
http://undeadly.org/cgi?action=article&sid...28183344&pid=14

and links to another site with information suggesting the controller Uwe wrote for may follow the sme spec as that used on the zaurus.

i mailed off a spectec wireless g sdio card to uwe last monday... he seemed pretty excited about getting wireless sd support going on the Z

not sure if it will make 4.0 (summer sucks for getting stuff done.. or at least I think so) but hopefully 4.1

So I guess we will have to wait a few more releases before getting zaurus internal sd support. O'well, atleast my external sd reader works great under OpenBSD/Zaurus 3.9. Maybe NetBSD will pick up this arch and release there own zaurus port? They support everything else, infact I was shocked when I found out that it was openbsd and not netbsd that offered zaurus support.

There will be SD support in OpenBSD 4.0 just not for the zaurus.sad.gif

There was a post on the mailing about this just the other day:

If we had one of these we wouldn't need SD support smile.gif



This guy installed Openbsd 3.7 on the device but never seemed to get the keyboard issues worked out which led to his selling it in September of 2005. Alot has happened in a year. Maybe the keyboard issues have been sorted out by someone else?

Heres the dmesg:

I wonder if this device would have similar keyboard issues?

Saw that Vaio a while back. Instantly wonder how it would be with BSD as a replacement for the Z.

Drooling yet? This Kind of reminds me of my old TI-92

Main features

-520 grams
-built-in qwerty keyboard with backlit keys
-built-in webcam <--We know this wouldn't work.
-VOIP/Skype compatible
-WiFi 54 Mbps, Bluetooth
-4.5" touchscreen <-- The OQO doesn't have a touchscreen. It has a magnetic field generator behind the screen which detects the position of a coil inside the stylus!
-1.2GHz Centrino
-1024MB RAM
-30/40/60 GB HD
-docking station
-vertical air cooling system
-easy grip, shaped like a game console controller
-Memory Stick Pro port, 2x USB2 ports, Compact Flash port, multi I/O port
-capture button (linked to the webcam) <-- Pointless if you are running OpenBSD.



I'm pretty sure half these buttons wouldn't work. We can't even get the shortcut keys on the side of the Zaurii's LCD to work. Not that I want them working since they can be a pain in the butt.

1-left button
2-right button
3-center button
4-launcher button
5-wireless on/off
6-built-in speaker
7-scroll wheel
8-webcam
9-trackstick
10-zoom button
11-power/hold
12-built-in microphone

Maybe we can convience Brett at Conics to try and install OpenBSD on one of these devices? (All he would have to do is boot a LiveCD which can be done since you can tell the device to boot from an external CDROM ux50_bios_boot.jpg) He seems to have a device recovery process in place as can be seen on the very bottom of this page:

http://downloads.conics.net/sony-ux/

and here's a link that shows the devices internals:

Ok well I sent an e-mail to Conics.net requesting the following:

QUOTE
Is there anyway you can boot a LiveCD for FreeBSD, OpenBSD, and NetBSD on a Sony VGN-UX90PS providing me with the dmesg output from each?

http://www.freesbie.org/  <--FreeBSD live CD

http://g.paderni.free.fr/olivebsd/ <-- OpenBSD live CD

http://www.tdisecurity.com/iso/newbie-0.2.iso.zip <-- NetBSD livecd


This being an i386 device there shouldn't be any issues.

Why do I have the feeling that the Sony VGN-UX90PS will never fully support OpenBSD? haha christ we haven't even got everything on the Z working. Though good point about i386...

Hopefully Brett at Conics will realize that if *bsd supports this device relatively well, then some (rich) people out there might be buying them!
