I Just put my C3000 for sale on ebay:


It is in excellent, like-new condition. I bought it from Dynamism the end of February 2005. I used it for about 2 months on and off. I decided it was not for me. I replaced it with a life drive, then an HP HX4705, then a palm TX, then back to the life drive after the rom update. Paired it with a new Mac Powerbook and all is perfect now.

The unit has had a screen protector since day one. It was converted to English by Dynamism. It currently has Cacko on it, which I think is much more useful than the Sharp Rom. The only mild wear is on the chrome portion where the screen hinge rotates. I am selling it with a PDair black leather case, imported from Japan, Pilot pentopia 3-1 stylus (much nicer than what it comes with), and an Asus Spacelink Wireless Card. This is a great buy for a tech Guru. I did not have the time for it...

So it is on e-bay if anybody is interested. I was unable to post my own picture since I was not able to find my digital camera. But I would me more than happy to e-mail anyone that wants one soon.
Send me an e-mail if you need more info or to make me an offer... hector.h@mac.com

Thanks for your time guys.

Hey guys,

Thanks to everyone for all their help in these forums. I will be thinking about selling my C3000 very soon. I will post in the for sale forum when I am ready.

I just bought a palm Life Drive. By no means does it compare or even come close to what the C3000 is and can do, but for my needs, it is just what I need at the moment.

My C3000 is amazing, I have learned so much, but also spent lost of hours, both when I should have been working and off hours. I have a Fujitsu S6120 and I do not need a laptop replacement, which is what the C3000 is, or can be.

I need a PDA for everyday use. I was able to install X/Qt and Debian, thanks to Meanie's great work. The screen is just way too small for my aging eyes. Plus the inconvenience of having to carry a wifi card moved me over to palm. I'll never go back to Windows Mobile!

I started with palm PDA's in '99, then moved to Handspring, then Pocket Pc, then Windows Mobile, then Zaurus SL6000, then Zaurus C3000, now I am back to palm.

I will keep my eyes open for a clamshell Zaurus with built in Bluetooth and Wifi, Plus the screen resolution of the SL6000, Plus possibly a bigger screen! I can dream!

Thanks again to all that have helped me. Send me an e-mail if you'd like to persuade me to sell now (perseus7@earthlink.net) or to find out about my experience with all these gadgets. I have PDAir Case, Pentopia Stylus, Asus CF Card, 1gig Sd, 1Gig CF, Screen protector since day one, Box and complete packaging.

Could someone help me upgade the kernel on the C3000? I had read the post last night but now I cannot find it.

Thanks for your time.

I know that there are already some x/qt debian topics on this forum. I have read through them but still have some issues. I decided to start this new topic in hopes that a more experienced Z user could help me through them. I am very new to Linux and Z, and no matter how much I read up on both - I can never learn fast enough.

So I installed X/Qt with Debian Script per meanie's site. Formatted my HDD3 to use a loopback and created a swapfile.

then to install I did this:

# zcat zaurus-debian-big-v0.17.tgz | tar xvf - -C /hdd3/debroot
# cd /hdd3/debroot
# pwd > /etc/debroot
# chown -R root:root etc
# chown -R root:root var
# chown -R root:root home
# mkdir -p mnt/card
# mkdir -p mnt/cf
# cp /etc/hosts etc
# cp /etc/resolv.conf etc
# vi startd

### startup commands ###
export DISPLAY=0:0
### shutdown commands
umount /mnt/card 2>/dev/null
umount /mnt/cf 2>/dev/null
umount /proc

# chmod 755 startd
# cd home
# ln -s ../root root
# mkdir zaurus
# cd ..
# cp -R INSTALL.d/debroot/root/.icewm home/zaurus
# cp INSTALL.d/debroot/usr/local/bin/* usr/local/bin
# cp INSTALL.d/native/bin/* /usr/local/bin
# cp INSTALL.d/native/debroot.conf /etc
# rm -r INSTALL.d

then this, because I could not get sudo to behave with cacko3KB1:

# su
# cp /home/zaurus/.xinitrc /home/root
# chown root:root /home/root/.xinitrc
# cd /hdd3/debroot/home
# cp -R zaurus/.icewm root
# cd /hdd3/debroot
# su -
# xlauncher debian

So here are the problems I am having after the installation....

Could some one please point me to the right web-page for bringing my zaurus back to life?

I updated to the new Japanese rom, flashed with cacko 3kb1. Running fine for several weeks. Tried pocketworkstation, had problems for about a week. I was finally able to install it but could not update or install packages.

So, I decided to reflash and start fresh with the debian setup. Everything went fine but when I tried to restore a back up that had my x/qt setup right, it just stayed at restoring 100%.

So I reboot it and then I had the HDD1 Error!!. So I tried to reflash with cacko 3kb1 again but no cigar, still have the HDD! ERROR!!

I bought this unit from Dynamism, I was never able to get into the service menu to do a nanback up. Should I get this Nanback up from them?

Is it available anywhere else on line? I have the Dynamism back up from when the unit first shipped.

Thanks for taking the time. This machine is awesome but my "manos de fierro" broke it!
