Well, I'm stumped. I have searched as best I know how through this forum and still have not found exactly what I wanted.

I did a fresh install of pdaXii13 on my SLC3200. Install went without a snag. I wiped the drive as I was using OpenBSD on it before. I am using IceWM as I did the last time I had pdaXrom on the machine (a beta version). It worked under the beta.

Anytime I change the panel from PDA mode (portrait) to laptop(landscape) (for lack of a better description) nothing happens. It starts up in portrait and stays there. I looked at the sysconfig directory and the scripts located there, even tried to execute them, but nothing happens but a bit of hard drive activity. The rotate menu item on the start menu also does not rotate. The rotate.sh script does not work either, even with the force parameter.

Any ideas would be appreciated!

OK, more info... I blew it all away and installed the r198 version. It rotates! When I execute the scripts in the /etc/sysconfig/clamshell directories, they come back with MODEL: C3200 as it should. I went back to the pdaXi13 version and the scripts do nothing and return MODEL: unknown.

Sure wanted to run the Xii13, but looks like until someone figures it out, or I figure it out I will go back to R198 and add the extras.

Not really an answer, but the openbox on iiXv2 is more recent than icewm-- you might try doing the v2 upgrade and runing openbox before you swtich roms.
