While trying to figure out what to do with my old 5600 I came up with the bright idea of using it as a remote media player up high in the kids room attached to some speakers, think wakeup call, stories, music etc.

I know that I can do most of this on the command line but I am at a loss as to the best way of doing this remotely maybe from a web interface, think Soundbridge or squeezebox lite. Or more importantly how my wife can do it. I am not tied to a distro as I need (okay want) to reflash anyway

Any suggestions?

I decided to power up my neglected 5600 only to find that it will only power up when connected to external power. If I remove the external power the 5600 dies. I have checked the battery by swapping it with my 3100 both the 5600 and 3100 batteries work in the 3100 while both fail in the 5600.

The 5600 was working okay when I last used it so I don't think anything could have physically happened it. Also the 5600 is charging its own battery without any problem.

Any suggestions?

I have 4 wifi cards, three report missing primary firmware after a few minutes use the other a senao intersil prism card has the fantastic ability to periodically tell me that my access point is out of range even though it is within 2 meters of mt C3100 at the time.

The other 3 cards are a Dlink DWL-660W, Ambicom WL1100C, elink XI815
All are prism cards, I have tried firmware upgrades and downgrades only to find that as soon as I want to do anything useful dmesg reports "no primary F/W"

Typically I can do an ipkg update sucessfully but as soon as I try to install or browse more than a couple of pages my wifi dies.

One or even two cards going faulty and producing the same error is plausible - just about, but 3 cards going faulty, two of them purchased within the last 2 months going faulty makes me suspect my hostap drivers. Why does the hostap driver try and reload firmware to the card after a few minutes/megs?
is there any way to stop it doing this?

Am I the only one experiencing this?

Has anybody managed to get Wesnoth running on Cacko ?

Has anybody found a program that will allow bookmarking of large mp3 files?

I listen to a lot of audiobooks, mostly from http://www.audible.com (no audible player for Zaurus) I have other audiobooks that are in the form of large mp3 files (up to 130M)

What I am looking for is something like http://kabook.sourceforge.net/ or even just a player that will allow me to bookmark my last listened to location and resume from that location. Strangely enoug this is not a common feature, most mp3 players will rewsume from the start of a track, and spending 20 minutes fast forwarding to find your place is no fun.

I am hoping to use my new C3100 as an audiobook player, the closest I have come is OTR player http://otrplayer.sourceforge.net/ but it does not support bookmarking. The holy grail would of course include automatic bookmarking of at the last listened to poing of multiple audiobooks!

I know that I can not be the only one out there looking for this!!!
