I'm trying to use one of my pcmcia wireless cards with my c3100 under the latest pdaxrom (1.1.0 beta3).

I've got 3 of them, SMC2632W, Dlink-650 and ZoomAir although they all report themselves as the same under a cardctl ident, with manfid: 0x0156, 0x0002.

I've tried the hostap and the orinoco drives, but I don't seem to get a device. /var/log/messages has "get dev info on socket 0 failed"

Does anyone have one of these cards working under pdaxrom and what is your configuration?

Oh dear. Not sure things are looking good for my little C700. I dropped it into some water about a week ago. I've been hoping as it dried out, things would start working again. Almost everything does apart from the screen. I've done a complete NAND restore to see if that helped, but my screen problems remain.

I don't think it's the lcd itself that is broken. The diagnostic screen has no problems. It displays fine.

When I try the pdaxrom updater, it's readable, but shows some flaws. I few streaks of pixels on which shouldn't be on.

Starting the console from the pdaxrom updater is almost usable.

From the command line in pdaxrom, it's almost readable (just lots of "pixel snow", not the same ones every time) till I get to the bottom of the screen, then need to do a clear and turn the Zaurus off and on.

If I do startx then the whole display freezes and doesn't update. When I tried to start the default Sharp 'ROM' it just froze at the splash screen.

Can anyone guess from this what's wrong, is it fixable, is there a console mode I could use in any of the 'ROMs' that would mean I could at least use my device in a meaningful way, should I just take it apart and have a prod around?

Remember kids, be careful around water.

Now we have rotation in the rom, I thought I try out xkbd and the good news is it works (other than being an ar format ipkg) straight out of the box! Download from http://familiar.handhelds.org/familiar/fee...ackages/armv4l/

Nice work on the new rom!

The new rom seems to have an autosuspend configured. How do you change/stop that behaviour?
