Hi there,

i just installed the new Angstrom x11 Image on my SimPad SLC. Works nice.
But i can't find a way to get my Wlan Card up and running. The card works, I used it under familiar before.

If I click on "PC/CF Cards" under Settings, I get an error message "PCMCIA initialisation failed No PCMCIA driver in '/proc/devices'"
If i open the "Root shell" and type in "pccardctl ident" it finds the card at Socket 0 and knows it's a function 6 (network) card.

What am I missing here? Can someone point me to a manual somewhere, that explains how to get the pcmcia card running under angstrom?

Thanks
Johannes

Hi :-)

I try to test it too with my Simpad SL4 ... GREAT WORK

... first issue are the basic functions ...

- flashing with serial console vie USB / serial adapter work fine (little slow with serial) ...
- on first startup to set clock and timezone no virtual keyboard available ...
- missing berlin/german timezone / german localization (maybe I am able to help!)
- missing usbnet support on Simpad ...

... second with some enhanced features ...

- my SIEMENS I-GATE 11M WLAN card is not recognized ... no WPA :-( for wlan / networl setting applet
- how to get my serial little keyboard work (DATACOMP Model DPK62AV V3.1) ... at the moment I need the port for serial terminal connection (login)
- sound missing
- some software missing ... (maybe via ipkg repos later)

- add sd/mmc slot
- add bluetooth dongle (but problem to get one with simple usb for "serial" connection only (maybe someone knows where to buy one in germany?)

I attach a logfile later today ...

Hi Martin,

-> serial keyboard (DATACOMP Model DPK62AV V3.1) works with angstrom !!!

i build for myself the kbdd_0.12 ipk.

Extra work is neccessary:

1. install kbdd ipk (if avaialable) with ipkg install kbdd

2. edit /etc/inittab , insert "#" for # S:2345:respawn:/sbin/getty ttySA0 115200 vt100 , save file

3. on Simpad try Settings -> Keys and Buttons
-> External Keyb.
-> External Keyboard Port: /dev/ttySA0
-> External Keyboard Type: Flexis

4. Simpad - restart (reboot, reset)

5. connect simpad with serial-keyboard

6. After restart, console -> modprobe uinput

7. /etc/init.d/kbdd stop

8. /etc/init.d/kbdd start

Now, try if serial-keyboard input is possible.

It works for me.

For serial-terminal login, reverse change of /etc/inittab (remove "#") and reboot.
