hello, i'm unable to get the wifi working at home with 40 bit wep key, channel 10 and fixed ip.
i 'don't want to change the config to dhcp as other pcs and servers are running.

i followed the scripts for wifi up and wifidown, it brings the wifi or not but unable to ping anything.

here is my config:

6000 ip:

dns: my isp dns

i see something related to dhcpcd in the script, anything could be related to that?

i'll have to find a hotspot to test.

many thanks

i'm a little confused, i've flashed a long time ago ma 6000 to :

guylhem rom
qtopia 2.1

and i would like to have a really quick resume on roms bugs as there are so many threads opened everywhere.

guylhem rom:
-can't install ipkg
-sd/cf automount is not working

qtopia 2.1:
-wifi doesn't work out of the box
-ipkgs not compatible (looking for a prior kernel)

-can't remember by the top of my head the incenvenients except "normal" slowness.

-not tested yet.

not tested yet

if you want to fill in the list, feel free, i think it could be a good tool for new 6k users.

and i have one question?
is it possible to have pdaxrom with xfce only?
excuse me if the question have been asked so far but i can't find it in the oesf threads "jungle"

thank you

i saw some posts everywhere about new kernel installed in our loved machine.

would it be clearer to centralise them here, only for the 6k?

i flashed mine easily and seems to be really quick to cold boot.
wifi pb could be fixed by modifying a file but i don't know how to use VI to modify it.

the most pb is about the ipk witch are not installing at all, 95% of them refused to .
my humble impression is that the signature of the ipk is looking for a 1.6 kernel and stops when he find the 2.1.
so all ipks will have to be re-compiled?

things are moving for our toy, godd news isn't it?

your impressions/solution to follow

hello, just bought this card as i was using it like a charm with my old z750, so i thought it will just be some ipk issue. but it seems not sad.gif

tried therenarod
and also to download ipk from oesf site but it refuses to install into internal memory ( only option)

just says a laconic " sorry , can't install this ipk, something went wrong"

no more luck...
tried a dpkg -c or -i from a terminal but don't want either (sorry, i'm not a linux guru)

did someone managed to get bt cf card work into a 6000? for me , the purpose is only to dial via bt to my mobile phone to surf from my 6000 in gprs.

thanks for your answers wink.gif
