First post in ages - the only real news is that I've been tinkering around with OZ 3.5.1, but ended up going back to 3.3.5 as the latter actually works (for me, anyway). But that's as may be... wink.gif

I put my 5500 on to charge last night, and noticed the power light (which usually glows when the battery is charging) was blinking steadily - about two flashes per second. Does this mean the battery itself is wearing out, or perhaps there's a problem with the power supply?

Any help gratefully received - many thanks!

I just bought what I thought would be a Blue Monkey CF Bluetooth card from eXpansys (see this thread), but got a "no-name" card instead. I understand it can be made to work with the Zaurus, so I want to try.

The ZUG HOWTO for Bluetooth is for the Sharp ROM, but I'm using OZ 3.3.5. I've read elsewhere that BlueZ doesn't support OZ, but this may have been for an earlier version of the ROM. I also found this article on an Opie WiKi, but some of the packages they refer to aren't in the OZ feeds, as far as I've seen.

Can anyone give me an idea which packages I need to install to get Bluetooth (BlueZ) running on OZ 3.3.5? Or should I go for Affix instead? (I've tried Googling for the best solution, but none of them seem to agree with each other - have any other OZ users got this working?)

Many thanks,

I'm seriously thinking of upgrading my mobile phone (an ageing Nokia 6310i on Orange in the UK), for a newer one which I could use with my 5500 and a Bluetooth card. (Don't have the card yet, but it's only a matter of time smile.gif )

I don't have much to spend on the upgrade, but am considering a couple of new phones. The current frontrunner is the Motorola V500, which has GPRS and BT as well as many of the usual features you'd expect from a 2004 mobile (VGA camera, colour screen, Java, etc.).

Has anyone tried using a V500 as a GPRS modem for a Zaurus, either over BT or IRDA, or are there any issues with this phone I should know about?

Many thanks,

Has anyone else had problems with fonts in Opera 6.x, running on OZ? I only get a monospace font (like Courier, but narrower), and it doesn't scale at all, only giving me one size.

Any ideas how to fix this, so I get a better-looking font?

Many thanks,

This evening, I was setting up an NFS mount on my 5500 (running OZ3.3.5), so I can listen to my Ogg file collection over my WLAN. I'm running XMMS on the Zaurus for multimedia playback.

Mounting the NFS share works perfectly, as does playing the Oggs, except for one big complication:

When I started ripping my CD collection to OGG format, I used tkcOggRipper running on our WinME laptop. After only a few CDs, I switched to Grip on my main Linux box, and Oggs created from Grip play back with no problems via XMMS on the Linux PC.

Problem is, they don't play back at all on XMMS/Zaurus. The most I get, if I'm 'lucky', is a split-second of garbled noise; most of the time, the file won't play, full stop.

I thought it might possibly be an NFS problem (despite the tkcOggRipper files playing fine), so I SFTPed one of the Grip Oggs over to the Z and tried playing that. No luck.

Has anyone else encountered problems with Grip-ped Ogg files on XMMS, and/or know a solution?

Many thanks,
