I'd need to recompile the driver, but I lack the kernel sources to compile with for 2.4.18 or 2.4.20. Modules are very kernel-version dependent.

Does anyone have the kernel sources that Captain Fish can use to compile the driver so that it will work under pdaXrom Beta3 ... please?

I'd definitely like the pdaXrom 2.4.18 and 2.4.22 kernel sources.

EDIT: I mean 2.4.18 and 2.4.20

I just talked to InSearchOf and he is going to see if he can get it to us.

Sorry if I'm getting this mixed up, but Beta3/pdaXii13 uses 2.4.20, but you need 2.4.18 kernel sources for compiling drivers and 2.4.20 for compiling applications. Is that right?

For kernel 2.4.20 you could use my unified Sharp/Tetsu/Cacko/pdaXrom kernel branch: http://www.katastrophos.net/zaurus/kernels/v55/

http://www.katastrophos.net/zaurus/kernels....20-v55.tar.bz2

The archive contains all sources and a README with all necessary instructions to either compile it automatically via script or manually.

If you need help I think I have some free time at the weekend.

AFAIK the 2.4.18 sources + patches are in the pdaXrom build kit which is somewhere on the ibiblio server...

Seems like they download the kernel from Sharp and then patch it with the kernel patches included in the archive...

I'd just like 2.4.18 and 2.4.20. I'd only need 2.4.20 to build against for pdaXii13, but I think modules have been requested for Cxx0 series that would use the 2.4.18 kernel.

I'm starting to stress test this driver. So far so good.

InSearchOf/Capn_Fish, how is compiling this driver for pdaXrom/Beta3 coming. Can I help?

I still don't have sources, and am currently too preoccupied with other matters to find the patches and patch the vanilla kernel myself.

EDIT: Antikx: Thinking of going back to beta3/pdaXii13?

No, probably not.
I sent cycle_55 one of the usb wifi adaptors and since he uses beta3 I was hoping he could use it.

I am at the present time not using it in the Z but in my wife's fit-pc with Ubuntu 7.10 and it works quite well. At some point i do want a usb wifi adapter for the Z and would be willing to pay someone to mess with the driver for me. Thanks Antikx for the adapter.

You cannot use ZD1211B based dongles as they are. They need more power than Zaurus is able to provide.

You have three changes:

1) Use powered hub

2) Modify you Zaurus to provide 500mA power on USB (it means change of one resistor).

3) Modify your dongle to run at 3.3V and use 3.3V from pin 11 of IOPORT connector.

I just tried it with my dongle. After removal of the linear voltage stabilizer from the dongle, the whole dongle runs at 3.3V and eats only 66% of the power than before.

But connecting it to 3.3V from pin 11 of IOPORT causes immediate crash of the Zaurus (one has to remove battery for a while to get it working again). It seems the current limitation circuit take action.
