I know that there was already a thread but this was some time ago and I see no final conclusion from it.

Which of the several kphone variants and other similar programs (ekiga, linphone) has best chance to work decently with sip providers?

I tried kphone 4.xx somd time ago (possibly it was 4.04) and after some tries I got it working but I was not so happy with the gui.

Is there anything better now? Does Ekiga already work with Pdaxii13? When I tried it last time it would not even start.

I am not completely clear about this instruction from Meanie:

"Once /mnt/card2 is mounted, extract everything from hdimage-full.tgz into /mnt/card2, then copy everything from /etc to /mnt/card2/hdd1/etc and /home to /mnt/card2/hdd1/home. After that, move everything from /mnt/card2/hdd1 to /mnt/card2. Following this, copy everything back from /mnt/card2/etc to /etc and /mnt/card2/home to /home."

This sounds to me like: "copy files, directories, subdirectories etc...", so I do

cp -Rf /etc/* /mnt/card2/hdd1/etc/
cp -Rf /home/* /mnt/card2/hdd1/home/
mv /mnt/card2/hdd1 /mnt/card2
cp -Rf /mnt/card1/etc/* /etc/
cp -Rf /mnt/card1/home/* /home/

Operation seems to complete but I see some error messages/warnings and I get some deeply nested directories like /home/root/cf/cf/cf/cf/cf.... and others. Everything seems to work afterwards but I am not finally sure.

Should I rather than copying whole trees rather copy only some files?
Or how should I proceed?

I am using built 5.4.8 and I own a C1000.

Thanks you for any help,

I flashed sucessfully pdaXii13 (akita-base-version) from http://www.tyrannozaurus.com/feed/pdaXii13/akita/ on my C1000, but when I try to update to the full installation ipk-batch-install.sh will not find some of the packages from the list ipk-batch-install.txt and others will be defective.

I had to rename ipk-batch-install.txt to ipk-batch-install.sh.txt, else it would not work at all. Also I added "-d sd" to ensure installation on the sd card.

Is there some inconsistency on the feed? How can I get around this? Is there some updated script?

Thanks for help,

I found a rather strange behaviour at my C1000:

When I suspend it (by the menu on the X-screen) even after beeing fully charged and try to resume after some days then it won't resume properly.
If I connect the charger then after some minutes it will be able to boot (no explicit reset necesary.)
It seems that the battery was completely empty because also the time settings are lost.
So something seems to draw the battery empty while the device is suspended because self discharge will not empty it in some days. There are beside the SD card no other cards inserted.

Also if I use it normally with battery it will show 100% ..... 50 % .... one step more (I do not remember which) and then it is suddenly empty. Result: see above.

The battery and the Zaurus are new, I run Pdaxrom beta3.

Is this behaviour normal? Is there any work around?

when I start Firefox from the rxvt terminal, it starts without any problem (but takes long time to start).
When I start from the icon on the desktop it wont start.
I ssh into the machine and make ps ax several times. I can see that the firefox processes are running as on normal start but then suddenly they stop.

I observed similar behaviour in other apps which take long time to start sometimes.

Is there some kind of time-out somwhere in the setting which kills processes if they take to long to start?
How can I change this?

Or may there be some other issue which applies only when I start from the icon?

Thanks for help!
