I am looking at buying an IPAQ to install Familiar(or a custom image built with openembedded) to uses as a wireless network mp3 player to mount to the walls of my sons rooms that I could ssh into.

From using OpenZaurus on my sl6000 I believe this to be possable to do from a software point of view.

I plan to have the ipaq ran off of an AC power adapter all the time and will be hooked into powered wall mountd pc speakers. So far I have been looking at the h3600 series since I am finding I should be able to pick one up off of ebay for under $100(most likely under $50). I play to nfs mount my mp3 shares over my wifi network. In the future I may want it to do more such as read email or have messages left for the person. Right now my sons are 2.5 and 10 months so music is all they need.

Here are my questions:

1. Will an IPAQ work well if it is running 24 hours a day?
2. Is the h3600 series going to work to have familiar install into the internal flash so if the ipaq is rebooted it will come back up tot he linux side without a problem?
3. How hard is it to uses a wifi cf card with the h3600 series?
4. Will if be a problem to the the screen displaying the time and date ins a moving screen saver all the time.

My goal is to a have basic termial the is mainly for music for under $100 a peice that way I can have 3 or 4 of these around the houses in different rooms. I see the touch screens are being the best input device for small children since I can uses icons to access everything and possable even uses flite to have the output read to them if it is doing something other them play mp3s. Hopefully my start at creating my own "Young Gentleman's Illustrated Primer".

I have been running pdaxrom 1.1.0beta1 on my SL-6000L for a late few days. When I am at work I plug my Z into its dock and ssh into it and export the display by to my cygwin-x desktop. As long as I am only running programs I can stay connected for hours. But every once and a while I loose my ssh connection. After about the 10th times of loosing my connection I started noticing that is seems to be when I am writing to the cf card. Usually downloading something from the internet or installing a new package.

This maybe a hardware issue, but I can not remember every experincing this problem with OZ/GPE or with the sharp-rom.

Has anyone else seem this issue?

I am working on getting e-image working on the SL6000 tosa. as of right now I can only use e-image-core due to the fact that it is 34mb and the tosa has a ROOT_FLASH_SIZE=32. At least this is my undestanding.

What are the reasons I would not want to change this to using 45 instead or 32 or some other number?

Also if this is not where i need to make the changes where woudl this need to be done?

I am looking at getting myself a new cell phone and want to go back to using a pda/cellphone or a smart phone. For several years I had a visor phone followed by a treo 180. Then for the last year I have been using a motorola v551. I miss the pda features of my palms and the fact that I only carried one device on me. Alright enough about me and my past few years of cell phones.

I know that several people on here have the motorola a780 and I am guessing there are a few that might have the a1200 or what is also known as the MING. I am trying to decided between the two phone. The main things I want to do with the phone is make and recieve calls, take quick notes and I want it to be able to sync with my calender, todo, and contact information with Exchange 2003.

Can anyone let me know what they have found that is good or bad about either phone. I want to know about any complants or things that people find make either of these phones worth owning.

Also how hard will it be to get it so that I can build new packages for the a780 or a1200/MING in OpenEmbedded?

Any help would be great.

I am getting ready to buy a 4GB cf card and a 1GB MMC or SD card. I am trying to decide if there really is an advantage to getting and SD card over an MMC card. is there really that much of a speed difference on a sl6k. the advantage i see of getting teh MMC card is that I will not have to worry as much about not being able to find drivers to uses it.

My main plan is to leave it formated fat32 and format the cf card as ext2. So the SD/MMC card will be used as a floppy to transfer files to and from machines. I do not have plans to run programs off of there but that is where I plan to keep document and files I am working on.

SD is cheaper from what I have seen. But the seed test on here for the 6k showed that it really did not matter how fast the card was since teh Z seemed to stay at the same speed.

Any subjestions would help.
