Hey guys,

Looks like I finally found the correct place to ask my zaurus questions smile.gif

I got my first one a week ago. It's a C700 with 32m internal ram.

I also have a 32meg CF card that came with the unit. The device has the Qtopia desktop and 2.4 Kernel running.
One other thing I noticed is that the second boot screen says" Copyleft Cacko 2003"

When I insert the SD memory card the device locks up for a bit then resumes normal operation?

I tried to fdisk /dev/mmcda ( didnt work )

and
mount /dev/mmcda1 /mnt/card ( didnt work)

The error message above said invalid argument.

So will the 2GB work on the 2.4 Kernel or do I need to get a 1gb card?

Thanks!

J. Perrymon

not really sure but type in cacko in a search engine and i think cacko 1.23 supports the bigger cards or that site has a ipkg that will let it reconize the bigger card but don;t quote me on that as i am new too

Cacko 1.23 does not support over 1GB SD Cards. There is a Sharp SD driver that shipped with the C3200 that works with up to 4GB SD cards. It also works with Cacko 1.23 but, only with the C1000, C3000, C3100 and, of course, the C3200. It will not work with a C700.

You should be able to find your Cacko version by tapping on the Settings tab and then tapping the System Info icon. Once that loads, tap the Version tab (it is the very last one and you will need to tap the right arrow button on the tab bar to get to it). It should be listed under the ROM Version line.

Yea, I tried that.. It only has the Qtopia (1.5.4) and linux kernel version ( 2.4.18-rmk7-pxa3.emb) compiled by Sharp.

So I need to trade the card for a 1g SD card? I assume that will work with my c700.

Also, will I need to update to Cacko 1.23 ? ( Guessing I have an older version)

I bought the large SD card because I need to install debian ( need PERL, so on)
. I have a CF RFID reader/writer I want to write software/tools around. So that is why I bought the Zaurus ( CF2 slot and it runs linux)

Cheers!!
