Hey guys,

I would like to use my Z to play with RFID tags. I have a 13.56 ACG reader that should use /dev/ttyS0 on a standard linux machine.

How would I get this working on my Z? How do I verify it's working also?

This is a sample script that works on linux. ( Perl script )

It looks very simple I suppose.

The reader just sits there and waits until data is sent to it.

I want to use my Z to communicate with RFID tags. I have a 13.56Mhz reader (CF) it uses /dev/ttyS0 on a nomal linux box. Not sure how I will get that working on my Z...

I have pdaxrom flashed on my C700 now. However, I'm really keen on getting a chrooted debian environment if that's what I need? At this point I'm not sure so I'll ask the experts.

I need the following on my Z.


Would pocketworkstation work with PdaXrom?
Does Debian use the PdaXrom X server or run its on?
How will this run on the C700?

Final Question:
Am I going about this all wrong? Do I need to put debian on my C700 to achieve getting the packages above?

My goal is to use the PDA to develop RFID applications. I have an ACG reader (CF2) card and need the dev capabilities above.

Hey Guys,

I saw this screenshot:

This guy has KDE running..

Is this possible on my C700 series?

I have a 34MB CF card and will buy a 1G SD card tomorrow as I have been told my 2GB SD will not work with the C700..

I would LOVE to have KDE on it but not sure how slow it would be????
Also, wonder if I could fit all this on a 1g SD card ..

I need to use the CF card for my RFID reader/Writer.

The windows driver can switch between network and IO modes. I set mine to network and disabled the checking service and other stuff, so it now always comes up just like any USB network adapter. It uses Samba to display the local storage as well as the SD and CF cards if inserted, and you can do ssh or other things if you install them.

I have a C700 and cant get my WINxp box to reconize it.. It comes up in windoze as a C760 but I can't locate drivers.

I got this off ebay. Zaurus 3.1 manager doesnt reconize the device so I can't Sync it or anything. I would really like to access the device through windows to access the SD/CF cards and SSH into it. I don't want to spend a LOT of time trying to write shell scripts on a little keyboard smile.gif I can write them on another box but it would be a LOT easier if I could SSH into it.

Hey Guys,

I have noticed that the CPU on my c700 stays at around 80-90%..

Is this common? This is idle with nothing going on?
