I left a file manager on before I press the cancel(on/off) buton to suspend zaurus, and after I resumed, it seems that the sd card is not properly mounted.  There seem to be fewer folders and they are mostly empty.  Anyway to fix that?

I have the same problem... It's kind of annoying that I have to reboot my z every time I suspend it. I remember reading somewhere that on another /home on sd approach, they had to tweak something in the suspend/resume scripts to make the SD mount properly. I'm looking for it now, as I have reflashed to cacko.

** edit **
I didn't find the answer, I must have seen it on devnet. But I did go buy a new SD card and that solved the problem. my lexar must have been off on the timing and couldn't resume properly.

One solution to the annoying blink problem is to reboot your Z, it will start with the LED steady. smile.gif It's not so complex. Maybe you guys can have a try. If I have time, I may look at the battery part driver for solution.

Just wondered if you have had time yet.

Thanks, Doug

Hi again earthcoder,
I tried to answer you under your "Help" post, but thought I'd mention that if you still want to "throw the pda", I wouldn't mind if you threw it my way instead of out the window smile.gif I'll even pay shipping! smile.gif

(But I'm sure you'll get it running)

Is it normal for System Info to show "Total Memory: 46280" on a 5500?

"free" also says Mem: 46280.

Shouldn't it be 64M?

(I am using the 64M version of the rom)

Hey Maslovsky,

First thanks for the updated kernel image for SL-5500.
This is great work.

I'm trying to write a kernel module for my Zaurus 5500 to
support wireless ad hoc networking between Zs. The kernel
module needs support of netfilter. So I have three questions
about Cacko kernel zImage-sl5500-32-30:1. Has zImage-sl5500-32-30
already supported netfilter? 2. Can I get the kernel source
or header files? 3. Can you recommend cross-compile toolchains compatible
with the kernel source? Thanks a lot,

Derek

Since you are working on this kernel, do you suppose you could figure out the problem with the flashing battery light?
I only have this problem with the kernel installed.

I have SL-5500 with standard sharp rom 3.13.

Any help is appreciated (no pressure).

Thanks, Doug

No, this kernel doesn't have netfilter enabled.
Kernel source is available at ZUG downloads section as well as dveelopment tools and development HOWTOS

Hey everyone, anyone

I have been using the new Caclko 64-0 kernel with my 5500 and enjoying it, esp. the battery app.
I installed the 1.9.1.6 KDE-PIM and whoops!
I first noticed that I no longer had any ipks listed in the uninstall area. and any later installed programs never had their icons change (or show up as installed or uninstallable.)

KDE-PIM would not start either. So I re-booted.

Still had the no-show in the install-uninstall lists....so I decided to flash Cacko again.

And now, after reset, I am getting same message as earthcoder reported. along with saying that I can do normal start with Control-D.
Well, all the key combinations in the world just bring me back to the prompt; as do any further resets.

I have reflashed several more times, but the same result upon restart.

Any suggestions?

Well...

I just re-formatted my SD and reflashed.

Everything back to normal! Luckily I had recently backed up!

Just so you don't misunderstand, everything is working, the third time around, because I have NOT installed KDEPIM 1.9.16!

Found em. The files are under kernel source not the roms section as listed.
Installed and working fine on a tkc v1 30/32 with kTrove to put the apps onto SD so I can keep the card VFAT. As advertised write access to the cards is much quicker.

Well After many months of using the 64-0 kernel(zImage) with what I thought was the correct filesystem, I have had to reflash to get my WiFi card working. This time I know I have the files correct as I downloaded them in the same zip file, and I am now experiencing the infamous blinking battery light issue.

I think based off of my experience it is pretty safe to say that there is a config/version/other problem somewhere in the file structure that is causing the blinking rather than an issue with the kernel itself.

I am relieved though, that after a month of "bangin o' the head" I finally have WiFi.

As soon as I have my linux box back up and running I will dig into this ROM as deeply as I can and try to find any clues as to what causes this.

(OR if my wife lets me I may just upgrade to the new SL-C1000 smile.gif )

I guess this issue is now dead in the water, with all the focus on the newer cacko updates going on.
I was hoping it might get fixed.
Oh, well... blink.gif
