Just another rootfs to play while waiting for the next cortez release
Upgraded "Zubuntu 1.0 Rc1" (Handhelds' Mojo Ubuntu Hardy 8.04 [Hasty]) to "Ubuntu Jaunty 9.04 ARMEL".
One can install the linked rootfs or upgrade from the original cortez-rootfs.
- all questions in Zubuntu Rc1 thread apply to this rootfs.
- for 760-860 zaurii read following posts to fix touchscreen and keymap bugs.
- removed "lost+found" folder from rootfs, my fault. sorry. new rootfs linked.
- installed, disabled and put "on hold" the package apt-xapian-index (eat too much resources).
- added recomendation about checking bad block before install.
BACKUP your existing system.
For an SD card, "halt" zaurus and from your linux pc with the sd card mounted, type:
tar --exclude="lost+found" -cpf ~/zubuntu-backup.tar .
INSTALL instructions available in Omegamoon and use this "zubuntu-desktop root filesystem"
File Size: 98.06 MB (Extracted: ~375 MB)
- After formating and before extracting the rootfs, you should check and mark bad block in sd card:
fsck -fcp /dev/sdb1where /dev/sdb1 is the partition of your SD card
- How to extract the .tar.bz2 file:
tar xpjf zubuntu-desktop-jaunty-rootfs_feb.2009-rev-armel.tar.bz2 -C /media/sdcard
- Remember to add the kernel and modules from Omegamoon and edit /etc/fstab.
- Boot and
apt-get install fennec abiword gnumeric geany xtightvncviewer x11vnc xournal cellwriter pidgin ...
- Has a "fake" boot splash. To disable it add "psplash=false" in /boot/kernel-cmdline.
- "Home" key is Terminal launcher, "Mail" key is WiFi toggle, "Alt+`" is F11 [fullscreen].
UPGRADE your existing "Zubuntu 1.0 Rc1":
1. in files /var/lib/dpkg/status and /var/lib/dpkg/available
replace all "Architecture: arm" with "Architecture: armel"
2. in file /etc/apt/apt.conf add:
3. in file /etc/apt/sources.list remove everything and add:
#9.04 Jaunty Jackalope
deb http://ports.ubuntu.com/ jaunty main restricted universe multiverse
deb http://ports.ubuntu.com/ jaunty-updates main restricted universe multiverse
deb http://ports.ubuntu.com/ jaunty-proposed main restricted universe multiverse
deb http://ports.ubuntu.com/ jaunty-security main restricted universe multiverse
All Ubuntu Jaunty official repository packages for your zaurus

is wesside-ng (-k option enabled)/easside-ng working (apt-get install aircrack-ng)?
would be the perfect tool for using with zaurus on the road
"Wesside-ng is an auto-magic tool which incorporates a number of techniques to seamlessly obtain a WEP key in minutes. It first identifies a network, then proceeds to associate with it, obtain PRGA (pseudo random generation algorithm) xor data, determine the network IP scheme, reinject ARP requests and finally determine the WEP key. All this is done without your intervention."http://www.aircrack-ng.org/doku.php?id=wesside-ng
Thnx for sharing your experience
(EDIT) usage examples:
wesside-ng -i wlan0 -v $AP_MAC -c $AP_CHAN
easside-ng -f wlan0 -s 127.0.0.1 -v $AP_MAC -c $AP_CHAN

I'm missing a good .mplayer/configuration to view not special encoded avis, with PXA option I see the screen like if there was a -vf crop:320:240 or something like that, also half of the movies plays in a slow motion like, while audio gets out of sync
in pdaxrom 5.4.9 I used the following config which allowed me to watch not special encoded vids in full screen and without being cropped:
framedrop = yes
cache = 1024
dr = yes
vo = bvdd
really-quiet = yes
quiet = yes
font = /usr/share/mplayer/arial-36/font.desc
vm = yes
nortc = yes
noaspect = yes
double = yes
dr = yes
but I couldn't find a good config for using with mplayer eabi PXA
I always end up with a zoomed video with slow motion feeling and audio desynched
tx in advance

try to put a LR03 1.5v battery in the middle of the CF black cover, play moving the battery over it, and see the result. for me is exactly the middle, putting it vertically, i see gain with AP I can't reach.
I don't know why, boring afternoon did the rest.
with LR03 battery in the middle
try with other CF, no glue please, removable mod

I don't know if it's the correct place to post, but as I'm using pdaxrom...
after a year playing with zaurus 3200 and reading this forum, i wanted to ask some issues that i can't solve.
everything goes fine, from basic system options to usb storage, vnc, sd, cf, WPA (supp 0.3.9-1, 0.4* does not work with cf11h and wpa), emu's, mplayering etc etc
loads quite good:
reply to an issue in bold, not all!
anyway, thanks for your work, it's amazing to see what zaurus can do, reading your comments.
NOTE: zbackup 0.16 worked fine. now moved from 5.3.5 to 5.4.9 with custom upgrade *.sh, just had to reinstall dbus cause epiphany cried, awsome
