My Content
13 Nov 2007
I just bought a SL-6000W used, and although or because being a Linux user, already in trouble. After trying to install MidnightCommander, I lost the terminal. All I have is a non-working icon of MC and no terminal. I then tried a reboot. It came back just as it was (still no terminal), but all in Japanese, and I can't find an easy way to get the English back, also not on this forum. Using the "Reset" feature does the same. The behaviour is really weird: some stuff is in English, but as soon as it is used, turns into Japanese.

Does this mean I have to reflash the ROM? If so can can anyone link me to SL-6000 specific instructions? The manuals I've found on this site don't cover this. I've also seen in the section NAND backups that it is easy to ruin the Zaurus. Is there a better way?

I have no CD or SD-card with software, but can easily download stuff and put it onto SD. Would this be a good oportunity to switch to the 2.6 kernel, some newer ROM image, or indeed to OpenZaurus instead of the original Sharp SW?
