I have been thinking about buying a Zaurus as a replacement for my older Visor, but also as an MP-3 player. However, one thing I would lose by not getting a dedicated MP3 unit is the FM tuner. Note that I am not talking about an FM transmitter; I want tune in broadcast radio stations.

I have found a few models of FM tuner CF cards, but I have not found any reference to Zaurus drivers. The common one I found is the Ambicom card (Ambicom FM-CF), but there are a few others.

Does anyone know whether someone has attempted to get one of these working on a Zaurus?

Thanks in advance.

Great. If that's the case, I'm thinking I should pick one up while they're still available. I found them here. Does anybody have experience with these guys (techforless)? Especially shipping to Canada. thks

I bought Casio E-125 from them at a very good price years ago. No problems. It was US shipping though.

Definitely would like drivers for this! I bought mine two years ago only to learn it would not work in the Z.

Well, if you guys want a driver (and I want one too) then why don't we sponsor it?

Maslovsky, are you still interested in writing it?
If so -- do you have a rough estimate how long it will take to develop it, probably along with some GUI?

I would like to sponsor it via Paypal, if these minimal conditions hold:
1. Released under GPL-compatible license (of course).
2. Works with both Cacko and OZ on the 5x00 models (yes, both 5500 and 5600).

Any other takers or opinions?

I'm interested. I would be willing to help facilitate this via the OESF. This is one of the reasons why we founded the OESF, but as we're still getting things off the ground, larger development efforts sponsored by the OESF will have to hold off.

That said, the OESF can match all donations 2 to 1, and possibly more depending on the total bounty needed.

Does that help?

Guys, I will have a look at what it will take me to write a driver for the card (I never wrote a linux driver yet) and will let you know some time next week.

I just got three of these cards, so if there's a developer out there that wants to hack together a driver for he Z I'd be happy to send you a card.

Much appreciated.

I'll donate $50.00 (yes, fifty bucks) through Paypal toward the development of a driver.
I am willing to be a beta tester for a 3.10 Sharp-based ROM on the 5500 (I am using Cacko/Crow) and for OZ 3.5.3 on the 5600.

Additionally, I may debug and/or help with the development of a Java-based GUI/frontend.
I'll setup a CVS or SVN repository for the source control and will host a feed site/mirror.

Having in mind offroadgeek's and OESF pledged support I doubt there were _ever_ better conditions for development of a small-scale OSS driver.


Takers?

Great! That's $150 so far (your $50 + $100 OESF match).

I will PM you with my paypal address.

Thanks!
