Hi,

First of all, apologies for my bad manners in cross-posting this message here after posting it in the Cxx0 General forum as well. I saw that that forum isn't very active at all, so I decided to take a bet and to repost it here, as this is the most active forum.

In 2003, I bought my C860 as an aid in my Japanese studies. I stayed with the original Sharp ROM and installed kanjidic + a few dictionaries. With its recognition of kanji written on screen, it was a dream dictionary. However, a few years later, I hardly had anything to do with Japan anymore and reflashed the ROM to some sort of Linux. It boots and gives me a login prompt. I can log in as root without a password, but I donīt know which ROM or version it is.

I'd like to flash it back to something similar to what I had before. The only requirements are: a good dictionary (extendible with more edict files), recognition of hand written kanji. I don't require networking, X, whatever in particular. Just give me back the greatest Japanese-English dictionary on earth

Any recommendations on which ROM to flash with ? I can find the right application soft myself after that, if standard Zaurus apps work on that ROM.

Thanks in advance,


Peter.

Hi,

I've just flashed my Zaurus C860 to the beta4 of pdaXrom and I'm very impressed so far. I'd like to start installing extra packages etc. but I can't get my Planex CF11H wifi card going. Here's what I've done so far.

1) I've downloaded the latest prism2 firmware from proski's site. According to Jun's mini-HOWTO and the IDtable, I need pk010101.hex and sf010804.hex from that zip file. I've copied these into /etc/pcmcia/firmware.
2) I've updated /etc/pcmcia/hostap_fw to reflect the new firmware filenames
3) I tried proski's "linux based prism2_srec flashing steps" but I get stuck because it complains with the error:

Odd.. Download request for the kernel driver failed.

I know this means that either my hostap.0 should be recompiled with the PRISM2_DOWNLOAD_SUPPORT and/or PRISM2_NON_VOLATILE_DOWNLOAD must be defined somewhere (probably this means a prism2_srec recompile).

Now, I don't have access to the internet from my PDA so I can't just download sources and make it all. I tried to trick my package manager into believing my /mnt/card/feed is a local feed, but it complains about the structure of the Package file I downloaded from distro.ibiblio.org. I tried downloading Package both in binary as well as in auto mode.

Anyway, what I think I need now is a new prism2_srec and possibly a new hostap kernel module that will allow me to flash the new firmware to my CF11H card. Can anybody provide me with these ? Or are they standard in another build, say, the 1.1.0r197, so I could just reflash and get it working ?

Any other tips would be very welcome !

Hi,

I recently rediscovered my Zaurus C860 and I thought: let's put another ROM on it, because surfing with the standard Zaurus ROM is terrible, and since I need to do some hacking to get even MiniOpera to work, let's hack it decently now we're at it.

After looking around a bit, I found out OpenZaurus has been superceded by Angstrom. However, the Angstrom homepage hardly mentions the c7x0 series. On the downloads, there's only 2007.12 images for akita and poodle, not the c7x0. If I manually go to the unstable images directory (no link on the site), the c7x0 directory has a subdir for RC1 but it's empty.

I guess it's still in development ? I wouldn't mind testing it a bit. Or, is there a stable alternative that's fast and that supports X + most applications ?

Hi,
Does anybody know how to get a new stylus in Belgium ? I've checked one main shop (Fnac), but they had never even heard of Zaurus :-S Then I checked the styli Z is compatible with, found it's compatible with Handspring Treo, but those machines aren't imported into Belgium anymore these days :-S I also mailed Sharp Belgium, but their reply was simply: we don't do Z in Belgium.
Any solution ?

Peter.
