Hello.

I tried to use the Netgear WG111 USB wifi dongle on my C3100 (pdaxrom 1.1.0-beta1).
When I plug it (with USB setting "serial"), it does find any driver. I am not quite familiar with USB support with Linux, so I wonder if it either unsupported, or if I have something to do before inserting it (modprobe some module ?).

With USB storage, it works without any problem.

1- Have you a USB OTG adapter cable?

2- If yes on (1), Have you tested with a powered USB HUB?

I've been having trouble with USB to serial adapters. The first one I tried was a Belkin F5U109 USB Serial Adapter. The driver reported by dmesg is the Magic Control Technology USB-RS232 converter driver v1.1 (mct_u232.c). It appeared to work at first, but then I realized that sending data did not work. So, I purchased an IOGear GUC232AWM USB to Serial Adapter. When I connected it, dmesg reported that it was a PL-2303 converter. It seems to function well, but it refused to function with the two programs that didn't work with earlier, though it seems to do more. The two programs are GPSBabel and sendMap (a statically-linked x86 binary with user space qemu).

I use the cable adapter "mini USB host", but i do not use a hub. Should I ?

(I also noticed that i can use my Ipod as an external drive !!!)

OK! I think WG111 must works with wlan-ng ...
try install and loads driver from wlan-ng

ThinkOutside Stowaway BlueTooth Keyboard.

Can discover device, but cant connect/use keyboard. Default sharp rom, & OZ works fine. Pdaxrom beta 3+4 & cracko it doesn't work.

Any hints on comparing whats different between pdaxrom & sharp/oz roms to make this device work?

I will love you forever if you can help *crossing fingers for help* lol

I've been trying for awhile to get a deleo usb gps device working on a C1000. When i attach the gps the output from dmesg shows the pl-2303 converter attached and says it has attached it to ttyUSB0. Im using beta4 now and cant find ttyUSB anything in /dev (i have seen it in previous versions though). I was interested to hear you say "It seems to function well". I'm a bit new at Zaurus (or even linus) devopment and was planning on trying cat /dev/ttyUSB0 to see the raw output from the gps to check if that was working before i then go on the get gpsd running. But since i now can't find ttyUSB0 and don't know what else to try I am stuck. Is there something i'm overlooking or some other package i need to install?

Thanks guys.

I've been using beta2 as neither beta4 nor beta3 was not quite working out for me. I did not get to testing my USB serial device, so I never tried it myself. So I don't know.

Hi I'm a new user to pdaxrom 1.1.0beta1 "Kathrin"
running on a c860 (I'm also doing some testing with a c760 on the beta4 release)

Previously I was a fairly satisfied cacko rom user but I wanted something
that gave me more the feel on a minature computer rather than a handheld,
something for which it would be easier to port normal linux applications to
so here I am.

Right after the install I started testing if all the hardware I frequently
use on my zaurus (wireless lan card, GPS receiver and bluetooth card) worked correctly.
Unfortunately one I need most while on standby is the bluetooth card that
system reports to be unsupported. On the cacko rom I managed to get it
working, altough I forgot if I hadto fiddle a little or if it worked
straight away.

Hope you can get me going with this card soon ;-)

Here are the essential card details:
PRODID_2="CF + PersonalNetwork Card"
MANFID=0104,009f
FUNCTID=254

Regards
David Rao

I've been trying for awhile to get a deleo usb gps device working on a C1000.

probably talking out of my hat but almost sure beta4 uses udev so there will be nothing in dev for ttyUSB untill something is conected. for that to happen a udev rule is needed for the device (had to read up on this to get a usb network working between debian and a 5000d). would sugest reading up on udev and how to write rules fot it. if someone has already made a rule for your gps device (for a laptop/desktop/toaster) then that should work for your zaurus to.

Seems that there's no primary firmware available. I hope I'm correct that this card uses a PRISM based chip ...

Anybody an idea how to proceed?

Do you have a piece of hardware thats not working under pdaXrom like a CF network card, USB controller etc?

Please post your cardctl ident and cardctl status and all other info you can find about the card (links to drivers etc.) - then we will try and fix them one at a time and try and make sure that pdaXrom supports as many accessories as possible.

We will probally be holding an IRC meeting with all user who are having problems with hardware but this is meant to be a warm up to see how many problems there are and how much time it will take to fix them.

I have this CF ethernet card, which I haven't gotten to connect.

EDIT:
I'm not giving up easily on this card since I paid a lot of money for it, it is brand new, and I cannot return it.
Additional info - this card uses this chip:
The Rugged CF 10/100 card utilizes the Asix AX88790 L 10/100BASE 3-in-1 PCMCIA Fast Ethernet Controller.

Here is a post about someone getting this working for 2.6 kernel

Socket indicates that this chip has a Phy bug and they provide a workaround.

I realize I am quoting a three year old post in a thread that hasn't seen a message in six months, but this is the most appropriate thread and it *is* pinned...

I am running a pdaXii13 full install from a SanDisk Ultra II 2gb SD card on an Akita, so far without issue. I am trying desperately to achieve some sort of network connectivity and have, to that end, just acquired a Trendnet TE-CF10 (yes, ten), This thread seemed the best bet to get it working, beginning with this (reposted at the time) info.

QUOTE
CODE
card "TRENDnet TE-CF100"
manfid 0x0149, 0xc1ab
bind "pcnet_cs"


I have tried it with the "100" and with a "10". I have tried it with the actual information reported by cardctl ident ("Ethernet", "CF Size PC Card", "1.0", " ") and I have tried it with the (later suggested) "Unknown NE2000 Compatible Ethernet". I have tried it with and without "function: 6 (network)" and even added the commented out "function: network_adapter" mentioned in one post. Nothing worked--in fact it never mattered what I entered in /etc/pcmcia/config, the card eject panel in icewm always reported it as "TRENDnet TE-CF100" (yes, one hundred).

I suppose it was due to my own tunnel-vision that it took me several hours to finally check lsmod to find out the module wasn't even being loaded and subsequently try modprobe pcnet_cs to discover that the module bound by 11,000 entries in /etc/pcmcia/config couldn't even be found...

I've looked in every beta1, beta3 and ii13 feed I can find (which is probably relatively few) to no avail. But then I realized that this is a fresh install of 5.4.9, my entire set of customizations consisting of adding some wallpapers, editing ipkg.conf so that /mnt/card2 will show up as a possible destination, and now one edit (several times) to /etc/pcmcia/config--which means that 5.4.9 doesn't include that module.

Is there some way I can get it, or would I need to reflash to some indeterminately older version of pdaxrom, get the card working and then attempt to upgrade back to 5.4.9 from there? Or am I stuck with an unconnected Zaurus until I can score a wireless card, since all the ethernet cards require this (seemingly) now non-existent module?

Thanks for any help you may be able to provide :>
