The xchat 2.4.5 in the feed is somewhat dysfunctional. It can connect to a server, but basically eveything else incoming is labeled GARBAGE. Does anyone have a working copy?

The xmms still keeps hanging in rc11, despite using the "disable suspend" option. I flashed rc11 yesterday and today my Zaurus froze totally while biking to work and listening to music. In addition to the "disable suspend", I had also unwisely selected the "blank screen" option, so when I lost all sound, my Zaurus was both showing blank screen and was totally unresponsive to all keypresses. So I had no practical way to see what was going on or even if my Zaurus was alive or not. Any hints I could do apart from rebooting by removing the battery?

I'm really mad.gif about this. I really don't care about various kernel tweaks but I'd really like to have applications that actually work in quite typical usage scenarios.

Today I messed around with kopi synch and made a mistake in the ssh configuration.
Unfortunately I realized this AFTER I selected the synchronize command. The problem was that almost the whole zaurus froze because of the faulty ssh config. Kopi froze, of course, but so did busybox (i.e. applets were unresponsive, window controls did not work, keyboard shortcuts had no effect). The only observed functionality was the mouse cursor, which moved as instructed. Ah, yes, the suspend button also worked. Unfortunately I had not written down my dynamic IP address, so I could not ssh into it and kill kopi or ssh or whatever.

The only way out of it was the classic battery removal. And hence two questions:

a) This is supposed to be Linux, one application really should not freeze the whole system! Could someone explain what happened and why the whole thing froze?

b) How to gracefully recover from this?

Last Friday I finally took the plunge and switched from Cacko to pdaXrom. So far I have pretty much transferred everything I needed, although going from SafeDee to portabase was painful.

Anyway, my main concern now is backup. I'm planning to use unison, but I'd like some input on what folders I should be backuping. /home/root, sure, but it contains only a minor part of the actual tweaked system. Then again, I really am not planning to dump the whole /, since a new ROM version would render that pretty much unusable.

Hints, anyone?

Since I had to switch my desktop from Gnome to KDE,
I have discovered the joys of klines... 8)

But where's the zaurus port? There are one or two
klines/zlines ipks's out there but they don't work.
Any hints?
