taking the long 'tour de ROMs' probably many of you took
I'm currently at beta1 + pdaXii13-custom on my corgi.
Installation went just fine, no further packages installed.

beta1 alone suspended just fine, augmented with pdaXii13-custom
it does not anymore. :-(

Issuing apm -s on the command line gives the nice power drain,
that won't let your machine wake up the next mornig. Just tried ...

If I click on "Suspend" the screen flickers once and that was all.
Is this known? Is it just me? Does my Z hate me?

Better still: Anybody knows of any workarounds?
Search engine gave no results for suspend + pdaxii13.

Being very happy with pdaXrom on my 860 I wanted to work(!) with it on the

Well. BUMMER. I had it suspended in the evening and it would not wake up, not even boot
again in the morning. After some investigation I found the battery was comlpetely drained.

Some experimentation showed, that my Z sucked power while sleeping.
Over night it would return to 100%, reported in /proc/apm.
Only a few hours later, disconneted from the AC plug but suspended, it was down to 45 %.

Cacko and Angstrom did not behave that way.

Is this a known issue? Can I provide further info for someone 'who just knows'?

After playing around with my Z for only a few weeks Im now looking for a way to dive into developing.
Gobolinux http://gobo.kundor.org/wiki/Main_Page seems similar to gentoo. they have announced an arm port of their distribution http://gobo.kundor.org/wiki/GoboLinux_Embe...g_GoboLinux-ARM
complete with a seemingly nice toolchain. Is there a HOWTO or something to build/use a kernel for my zaurus 860 with this distribution. Or should I let my fingers away, if I need a HOWTO for such an experiment? :-)

Perhaps I can combine this question with a more general one: I've successfully build some applications in my cacko/Xqt setup but the 2.4 kernels seems to get old and Id like to have a 2.6er for the reports of snappier operation. What toolchain and distribution would you recommend?

Waiting for the next pdaxrom? Angstrom? They seem to do a lot of things "the right way".
Something else like gentoo/gobo? Is there any way to streamline repositories, so that say a packages compiled with softfloat can easily be recompiled as a hardfloat one and can be used in different roms?

Any pointers to documentation of the current status of Z developement with respect to setting up toolchains and roms are highly appreciated.

And by the way: Thx to everybody in here! The Z community is a nice place to be.

Id really like to see chessdb http://chessdb.sourceforge.net running on my Z.

As far as I can see it depends on tcl/tk and c++. Id try myself, but Im still searching my way into crosscompiling and and trying to learn with smaller applications.
(and having difficulties with softfloat/hardfloat and cacko and pdaxqtrom)

Has anybody fun looking into chessdb?

I cant believe Im the only one, but I cant find anything related in the forum.

I have installed the latest cacko and pdaxqtrom. Most things run fine, but there is no way I can enter a question mark "?" in abiword! It works in my aterm under X, it works in the konsole, but in abiword it does nothing as far as I can tell.

Any advice?
