Hi all

I've finally come to the point where I've become 'bored' with my Zaurus - no longer have the time/energy/interest to continue to work on it. So, my C860 is up for sale!

It's in like-new condition, with the original box, manuals, etc included. I will also include my Linksys CF Wifi card, and a 512MB Lexar CF card. I also have a 512MB Lexar SD card which is currently used in my gf's digicam, but is negotiable - ie: could be included if we work something out.

It's never been used w/o a screen protector (ever). The one currently on it is a Brando Ultraclear, just needs to be reapplied properly to get rid of all the air bubbles.

I can pre-load it with any of the major ROMs out there if you'd like (Cacko, OpenZaurus or pdaXrom); it currently has pdaXrom Kathrin RC8 installed.

With all the above-mentioned "extras", I am asking $750CDN obo plus shipping (shipping cost depends on where the buyer is located). It will be shipped from Calgary, AB, Canada.

Please e-mail me at dgoodlad (at) gmail.com if you are at all interested.

EDIT: I've put my Zaurus on eBay (auction here), but if anyone is still interested feel free to e-mail me - you might catch it before any bids come in!

Hi all

I've got a zaurus c860, that I've had for a few months and has been working beautifully. However, this afternoon, I brought it back from suspend and the pointer was 'pulling' to one spot, always wanting to click there. It was working fine this morning, and was not dropped or anything.

Now that I've got it home, I can see from the reflection of my ceiling that the screen is INDENTED slightly in 3 spots in the same area. There's what appears to be a moire-like pattern (colored, concentric circlular patterns) at the center of one of these indented areas, which is exactly where the pointer is pulled to. It seems like a liquid of some sort may be 'stuck' between the screen itself and the touch-screen layer. I can move this 'stuff' around slightly by pressing on the screen lightly, but cannot move it from the spot where it's stuck. The pattern shifts, etc, but does not move.

Has anyone had anything remotely similar to this happen?? I'd be devastated if this screen was screwed sad.gif Any advice???

Hi all!

I'm getting my Zaurus running more and more like my desktop every day here! I just got Enlightenment DR16.7 compiled and running beautifully on my C860 smile.gif

It's definitely not the window manager for everyone, as it doesn't really act as one would expect a 'pda' to, but for me this is how I like to work. The automatic right-click after 500ms is rather annoying in E right now, so I've got to change that, and tweak some other things, but all in all it works quite well. Memory footprint is only around 4mb, so technically I'm using less ram than I was when matchbox+openbox were running! However, I may want to find a couple apps for displaying batt status etc...

Hi all

I'm just playing with setting up a normal user on rc5 (I just HATE running everything as root... too sketchy). However, I cannot get 'su' to work as my normal user:

su - root
Password: [typed in pw]
su: cannot set groups: Operation not permitted

Anyone know what it's actually trying to access/change here? busybox is suid root, so it should be able to do almost anything...

I am able to go from root to a normal user, though (as root, run 'su blakeyez' and it goes just fine, no warnings).

Hi all

Just curious: should the 'xargs' program not be included in findutils? Is it in any other package at all? I'd like it around both for shell scripting and for certain packages taht I want to compile that need it as part of their build process... If it's not currently included, consider this a feature request smile.gif

Thanks for any info
