Hooray!

Ok the story so far

1. Equipment:

Zaurus SLC 3000
D-link DCF 660 Wireless Card
256mb Panasonic SD
4GB Transcend SD 150x
2GB Panasonic SD Class 4

2. Zubuntu:

Downloaded the Zubuntu install files on xp, transferred onto a fat card (oh dear).
Formatted to ext2, unzipped in Ubuntu on my macbook :-D
booted but got errors messages to do with akita sound lib not found

lsusb listed nothing
cardctl didn't work (even after adding etc/module entries)
lsmod listed nothing

No usb devices are recognised or powered.

3. Speed on Zubuntu:

Used 2gb and 4gb and when I loaded the sound app (audalicious?) the window dragging had a noticible 2 second delay. I'll get a sandisk extreme III and test it when I can. Also I'll get a 16-32gb CF and test that too ;-p

4. Multiboot:

Couldn't get kexecboot to work fully.

.nfo wasnt picked up on the partitions but partitions did show up. All partitions were made in Ubuntu 8.10.

a) Zubuntu booted off the first partition but I copied cacko (slc3kb1) to another partition

zImage.bin
updater.sh
mversion.bin
initrd.bin (then deleted it)
hdimage1.tgz

cool.gif then unzipped spitz-root-addition.tar to each partition
c) renamed zImage.bin to zImage
d) had no idea how to change the kernel cmdline

booted and said hda not found.

Why I am doing this biggrin.gif

I had a Hp200LX and it was the best thing ever. Since then I'v had every single pda under the sun (from sony clie to psions to blackberrys to nokia) Best thing ever was that old clamshell, qwerty keyboard. Then I saw a zaurus clamshell biggrin.gif so I've been playing with it for weeks.

5. Problems (I've reflashed about 40 times in 4 days so no problems there)

a) pdaxrom full is too slow and a bit unresponsive. Wake up from standy is too slow.
cool.gif cacko is good but the apps seems a bit limited. I like the functionality of pdaxrom but it really is just too slow. So i'm back to cacko.
c) Dlink DCF 660W. Damn thing isnt recognised by any distro. Cartctl just returns nothing. Card ident - nothing, Card info, nothing. Bought it second hand :-( but getting a Belkin F5D5050 USB to 10/100 LAN Ethernet Adaptor so i can at least get internet. I have tried everything to get this card to work (dlink) but nothing happens. The light goes on but nobody is home.
d) Mplayer can play a movie off the terminal but nogo in x11. Rotated and the sound is out of sync though it is larger than 640x480.


Hope you get zubuntu up and running fully as it would be great for the clamshell. Haven't tried bsd or angstrom yet. Want something quick to type with and mayeb play music and watch movies.

6) When you reflash back to cacko everything is still there.

phew i was up until 6am last night (morning) trying to get it working
