Using OZ 3.5.3 (Opie) on my c860, after I go into package manager and "Upgrade", inserting my Symbol WiFi card causes the Z to crash. I learned about the "machine" feed on the forums, so after removing the orinoco-modules and orinoco-modules-cs packages I had installed (which stopped the crashing) I downloaded the orinoco-modules and orinoco-modules-cs ipkgs from the feed at:

only to learn that they're 2.4.x modules, and I'm running the (default) 2.6 kernel.
Has anyone else had this problem with upgrading? I don't mind reflashing, but I don't see what I could do differently the next time around to avoid this problem...

I've spent a good amount of time googling, and I cant find anything about Japanese input support under OZ. Can anyone tell me if there is a way to add the japanese input method / fonts to OZ/Opie?

I currently am using Cacko in Japanese w/ all apps modified to use english, and find this to be ideal because I can use Jisho & KanjiNirvana easily. I'd like to upgrade to OZ/Opie. Is there a similar setup for OZ/Opie that will allow me to use Jisho & Kanji Nirvana w/ japanese input?

In case it matters, I have a c860 w/ 1gb of SD memory that I never remove.

One of the reasons I'm considering switching is that I have to use GCC 2.x to compile packages for my Z, and for alot of software thats just not an option any more. Also, the Wireless support in OZ is MUCH better than Cacko IMHO. The primary reason I've chosen OPIE over GPE is because I want/need Japanese handwriting support and I assume this is not available under GPE.

1) Can I enable Japanese language support? Is it similar to how this is done in Cacko?

2) Assuming the answer to #1 is yes, can I still run Jisho? If not, is there another program I can lookup Hiragana with?

3) Are there any problems running Hancom Word/Sheet under OZ 3.5.2?

4) Theres a version of Firefox available for Cacko, but its pretty old (0.6). When searching, I was unable to find any Firefox packages for OZ. Did I not look hard enough, or is there some reason why Firefox/Thunderbird can't exist under OZ?

5) The last time I tried OZ, there was a bug where the brightness couldn't be turned all the way up. I've read that this has been fixed, but are there any other current bugs that I might consider a deal-breaker in terms of switching to OZ permanently?

I'm not scared of dependency-hell or anything like that; I'm willing to put in the time to get my Z working properly. What I need is a mobile tool that provides: browser, SSH terminal, email client (IMAP cache&sync), Japanese dictionary and VoIP (Skype would be ideal, but I'll most likely go with an IAX or SIP client).

I'm currently using Opera, XQT, Firefox .6, Sylpheed, SLJisho, and KPhone. As long as I can get these working under OZ, I'd consider it a huge improvement over Cacko. I'm just afraid of spending hours only to find it can't be done.

Thanks for any help you can offer!

Is it possible to cache an IMAP account to an SD card in my Z for offline reading, and get new mail when an internet connection is available? If not, is this feature planned for a future release?

Also, OM/Pi seems to ignore the Read/Unread flag on my email messages and mark everything Unread every time I connect to my IMAP server. Is there any way to get it to show the proper Read/Unread flag?
It seems to have no problem marking the messages as Read, because after checking my email from my Z, I had 0 unread emails back at my desktop.

I've had almost no success finding any documentation or discussions online about OM/Pi, so even if you don't know the answers to any of my questions, but know somewhere better to ask/search, please post :-)

I'm currently using kdepim_1.9.13_for_Sharp.

I have been running on Javab0y's kernel on Cacko 1.21b because I like being able to use Kismet with my Symbol wifi card, and I like having japanese handwriting recognition. Recently I received my Socket bluetooth CF card (revision F) and when I inserted it, it caused my Z to complain loudly about the kernel being newer than the bluetooth module. When I did a hard reboot, a similar message appeared while entering runlevel 5, and my Z froze (even with the card removed). I had to reflash to get it to boot again, and I'm currently operating with no problems using the stock Cacko kernel.

Is this a dumb newbie mistake, like I forgot an important step of the kernel install?

The socket bluetooth module is wonderful, I can be online any time now (via Verizon's free (costs minutes only) high speed service (dslreports says > 56k) using my motorola v710 (will post more info if requested)), and since the bluetooth card is flush with the Z's case, I can leave it in all the time. But now I can't use kismet, and the Cacko wireless network setup utility leaves alot to be desired in the browsing department.

Does anyone have any suggestions for getting Javab0y's kernel to play nice with my bluetooth card? Failing that, is there some other way to browse open networks? The auto-join feature (using "any" network) is undesirable because often I find many open networks nearby, and I'd like to specify which to join.
