Hi all,
now there are new stable r18 images [1] available for SIMpad.
I am glad to tell you that there is also an opie image for your beloved device.

The opie image works fine except of the brightness control and the two extra buttons (joypad works).

Please report bugs related to those images to the bugtracker [2] and make them block bug no 2186 if it is an opie related or bug no 2595 if it is SIMpad related.

If you want to have some other images build for SIMpad please write a mail to the list or this forum.

best regards
mr nice

and thank you for your response
hope i'm not moaning (too hard), but the CL4 is not the most flexiible model
its been gathering dust mostly because of my frustration

but alas, no working MMC
thanks for the suggestion, i've already switched to Familiar 0.8.4/GPE 2.7 again, gotta give plucker another try
just managed to get USB networking up, finally..
i'll update the wiki on that soonish

but about kexec, what would booting from MMC accomplish, more built-in storage available?
I'm not too well at home with kernel and memory stuff.
e.g., afaics there's no swap, but wouldn't some swap space prevent VM (memory manager?) from killing processes so soon/often?
This is one of the probs with the CL4, for example gpe gallery works, but one shouldn't ask too much of it (no fullscreen, slideshows, lots of images etc.)
for the old familiar that is, r18 didn't have much to test on

i'll wait a bit until USB or MMC becomes available for the new Angstrom images,
i don't see what further testing i could do without, unless lrzsz gets back into the image
anyway, me and my pad would be happy to stand corrected smile.gif

regards, Berend
