I've been toying with RC11 and RC12 on my 3100 these past hours and am globaly satisfied. After three month of Sharp ROM it feels like being back home smile.gif.
However I downloaded icewm from the feeds - and liked many things there: you can hide the taskbar, change the window decorations... The problem is that other things seem to be missing (or I did not find them): how do you unmount a card (I did this from the command line). And it lloks like you can only shutdown the system, not suspend... Also, I did find some files that looked like configuration for icewm, but modifiying them does not seem to have any effect.

In short, it would be nice to have a few informations as to the pdaxrom implementation of icewm.

Thanks, Thierry

Hi everybody. This is NOT a flame! I have been addicted to the pdaXrom (on a C760) and I have contributed to funding the development. So I definitely love it.
However, I bought a 3100 when it came out and had to get back to the Sharp ROM. It may be boring, but it just works. Now I have a working Z and come back here to find out there is a pdaXrom that should install on it and... I am really wondering what I should do: If RC11/12/?? are really beta I'd probably wait a little before blowing my installation.

If I can expect the basic functions to work well (I mean, if I don't have to take out the battery twice a day to cure a freeze and if I don't loose my calendar files) I'll try at once.

I've got this: I create an ext2 partition on a CF card. I format it. (all this on a C-760). I put it in a card reader on my Linux machine, copy some files, put it back in the Z and get this:

cardmgr: mount: wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on /dev/hda1.
cardmgr or too many mounted file systems

This happens with pdaxrom 1.0.5 .

I reformated the CF to FAT (in my camera) and now it works. So my Linux PDA can't exchange data with my Linux Desktop without using FAT? Or am I missing something?

I've flashed the new ROM and overall it seems nice. I have noticed one problem and have a question:

- if I leave my tcl/tk apps loaded and set the Z to sleep, on wake up they close. That's not too bad. However if I leave gtk applications opened (xmms and gqview) and set the Z to sleep it simply freezes - I have to remove the battery to restart it.
I?m not sure if this is gtk linked or if it has to do with the fact that the apps open files on the CF card.

- The X fonts are still tiny. I've found I can change the font size in Qtconfig but it won't change the fonts in an X window. There also is a (quite large) "fonts" ipk but there is no documentation and as I'm quite tight on space I won't install it until I know what it does.

NO, I'm not abandonning the X11 ROM but my thinking was: if I get a C-860 to get more space on it, and want to sell the C-750, most probably the buyer will want the "original" system.

If you have installed teh xpdarom, and modified the NAND partitionning, is it possible to return to the original ROM?
