I just tried to flash OpenZaurus 3.5.1 to my SL-C760. I dowloaded the following files:


from http://www.openzaurus.org/official/unstable/3.5.1/c7x0,c8x0/ and also checked for their MD5 sums to be OK. I copied them to my CF card, with renaming them in the following manner:

opie-image.rootfs.img -> initrd.bin
updater.sh -> updater.sh
zImage.bin.forHusky -> zImage

and then go for the reflash procedure. All seems to go well, and the Zaurus reboots. but, when booting, there are a lot of error messages, like:

Inode #XXX was a directory with children - removing those too..


Cannot remove child "pan.png" ino #XXX because it doesn't exist

and after a while, I get the following message:

Kernel panic: No init found. Try passing init= option to kernel

and the whole thing hangs.

now, what am I doing wrong? I tried to use the bootstrap-image.rootfs.img file instead of the opie-image.rootfs.img. Also tried to rename zImage to zImage.bin, but to no avail...

I read in the FAQ that it's not possible to sync the Zaurus apps with Ximian Evoltion. There's a link there about some preliminary support though, but it's dead.

What do people use as PIM applications to sync the Zaurus with, on Linux?

I'm trying to access a closed WiFi sport with my C760 via a Buffalo WLI2-CF-S11. I'm using the Cacko QT ROM. The WiFi spot uses 1024bit encryption using Key2 for the encryption key.

I set up all in the network dialogs, but the WiFi card can't connect (it tries but it fails)

The same C760 with the same WiFi card works for public WiFi networks.

The same Buffalo WiFi card works fine for accessing the same closed WiFi sport from an other PDA (some PalmOS based device).

What could be wrong here?

How could I get the japanese input method supplied with the C760 to work with the Cacko ROM? I just flashed it, but it only offers english input. The japanese input method (inlcuding the written interface) was very nice on the stock C760...

I just flashed my CL-C760 with the OZ 3.3.6-pre1 images (husky). It reboots fine, but than I can't mount my CF card nor can I do networking.

For networking, I plug in the USB card, and the usbd0 net interface comes up. I can only ping the zaurus (, but when trying to ping, the Zaurus simply freezes. The only way to get out of the situation is to remove power and the pattery, than restart.

As for the CF card, it desn't mount automatically. When trying manually with either
mount /mnt/cf
mount /dev/hda1 /mnt/cf

it simply says:
mount: /dev/hda1 is nat a valid block device

I tried to remedy the situation with trying:
cardctl eject; cardctl insert
/etc/init.d/pcmcia restart

but to no avail. looking at scripts in /dev/init.d, I found a script called /dev/init.d/devices, in which the following line does not execute:
# mount -t ramfs ramfs /dev

mount: fs type ramfs not supported by kernel
