I still occasionally have disk errors w/ my C3000. Can the disk in my Z be replaced/upgraded w/ a new 6 GB drive or a CF card?

24 Dec 2006
First this is my fault. While flashing my updated version of Cacko 1.23 for the C3000. I lost my partition table.

No big thing right? Just boot into D+B mode recreate them and then reflash right?

Well. I can't seem to create a 'good' partition table.

I've tried as both /dev/hda and /dev/hdc (w/ a CF card inserted) and I get the same 'extra' partition. After creating hda2, when I start to create hda3 fdisk autoselects partition 4.

Here's what my partition table ends up looking like.

/dev/hda1 1-204 id 83 (linux)
/dev/hda2 205-1020 id 83 (linux)
/dev/hda3 1-1 no type
/dev/hda4 1021-7936 fat32

I've even tried building the partition table backwards (from hda3 to hda1). I that case I still get the 1 block no type partition. I don't understand enough of the advanced menu in fdisk to know if I can clean this up.

I just don't get it. I will say that a few times fdisk didn't even find my hard drive. I bought my 3K the first week after they were announced, so this unit is a full 3 years old.

Is this fixable?



Edit to mark as fixed.

I have a SL-C3000 w/ headset (RH2).

This combo works well w/ the sharp media player in Cacko. But mis-behaves badly w/ opieplayer.

I've done enough looking around to know that the two headsets sharp (RH1 and RH2) has for the zaurus line are configured to send "different signals" when used.

This has to be a simple key mapping issue, but I'm not sure how to fix it.

Any thoughts?

My Asus WiFi has gone missing, I'm pretty sure I left in the ALT airport last night during another 'Delta delay'.

So I'm in the market for a new CF WiFi card. I'm also going to add a Bluetooth card to may stable. I found a decent thread that recommended the Socket BT CF card, since it doesn't protrude much.

WhatWiFi card has the smallest antenna?
What WiFi card has the best (least) power usuge?

I plan to use either Cacko or OZ/Opie so I need to be sure it's supported by these ROMs also.

I posted a similiar topic last september. It's finally time for me to get a new phone. What's the best linux powered smartphone out there today?
