I'm trying to get the opie network settings (KPPP) to play nice with a modem card that I have. The card (Aerlink from SDG Systems) works perfectly under the Sharp ROM. The card is recognized under OZ, but it won't dial--I assume this means the modem commands, etc..., are wrong.

I was hoping that someone could tell me where file(s) containing the settings found under Settings -> Network -> ppp0 -> Devices -> Modem Commands are stored. I'm hoping they're in a similar place in the Sharp ROM (since they would all ultimately use pppd, I assume), and I can simply copy them.

TIA. . .

I've recently become interested in X/Qt and running X apps on the Z in general. Looking over this thread, I have two questions:

1) When people are saying "PocketDebian," do they actually mean "PocketWorkstation"?

2) Is there any reason/advantage to use a chroot environment (such as the one provided by PocketWorkstation) to install Debian ARM packages? Is it a "bad idea" to install this sort of thing directly using apt-get (which is present in the OZ 3.5.3 feed)? Is it because of the need to install everything on the SD card?

I've been poking around a bit with pocketworkstation, but I'm not sure that it is right for what I want to do--I actually just want a couple of apps (siag in particular), so I was wondering if its possible to install debian-arm .deb's directly on OZ-3.5.3. I know that ipkg supports .deb's--does this include dependencies? Could I add debian-arm repositories to ipkg.conf and just "ipkg install -d sd siag"? Are there any discrepancies between gcc in debian (sid shows v. 3.3.5-3 for the arm tree).

I ask this because I installed xqt from the 3.5.3 feed, and it works flawlessly. . . it seems like what's needed to install pocketworkstation is overly involved. I'd like to quickly install an X desktop (either ROX or fluxbox, most likely) and get siag and a couple other apps running without having to set up the chroot environment, etc...

Has anyone installed IRK 0.11-r2 from the 3.5.3 feed? I keep getting an error, as described in this thread. I've run with higher debug output, as follows:

#ipkg install -V 3 irk

Check the spelling or perhaps run 'ipkg update'

Anyone have any ideas? I'd really like to get the keyboard going.

I am experiencing some weird behavior on Kubuntu Hoary, using Kitchensync/MultisynK. After a great deal of effort I finally got KDE to connect with the Z (OZ 3.5.3 Opie). It accesses the xml files fine, and on the first sync (in which all the info was on the Z, the KDE apps were blank after a new install), everything went to the desktop fine. Then I addedd a to-do on the desktop and sync'ed again to see if it would propogate. Everything went wonky.

MultisynK told me that every one of my entries had been "deleted in Opie," and asked me if I wanted to delete on the desktop. I said "No" to all of them, and ended up with duplicate entries. I ran the sync again and answered "Yes," which deleted all the duplicate entries on the desktop and all the entries on the Z. I restored the Z data from backup, and will try this all again soon.

Has anyone had Kitchensync work perfectly?
