I think the current 4.2 Beta deserves a separate thread for discussion.

The first issue I run into is the setting of the cpu speed in /etc/sysctl.conf.
For "machdep.maxspeed", both 520 and 450 seem not working.
I see this error message during booting:
CODE
"sysctl: machdep.maxspeed: value is not available"


But according to www.planetofidiots.com/zaurus/ 450 is supposed to work, despite that 520 is said to be unstable under the current build. What to do?

Sidenote: i've managed to set up a NFS server on my Macbook without virtualization, and my 3200 succeeds in mounting the NFS shares to build ports there. smile.gif But I am doing things a bit differently from the instructions in www.planetofidiots.com/zaurus/ . Will post a step-by-step guide soon.

Ok, here is another issue about xrandr.

I tried xrandr -q to find out the correct size and got
CODE
Xlib: extension "RANDR" missing on display ":0.0"


And then I tried xrandr with some flags, e.g. -o -s etc, and got
CODE
Can't open display 0


Is there something we have to set in /etc/X11/xorg.conf? Or something else?

Thanks!

If you look in /var/log/Xorg.0.log you'll see this:

QUOTE
(II) wsfb(0): Enabling Driver Rotation, disabling RandR
(==) wsfb(0): Backing store disabled
(--) RandR disabled

So the wsfb driver disables it by default. Currently, the rotation of the screen can be changed by editing the "InputDevice" section of the Xorg.conf:

QUOTE
Option "Rotate" "string"
              Enable  rotation of the display. The supported val­
              ues are "CW" (clockwise, 90 degrees), "UD"  (upside
              down,  180  degrees)  and "CCW" (counter clockwise,
              270 degrees). Implies use of the shadow framebuffer
              layer.


However, it's not on the fly rotation. sad.gif
