Hi All,

I have a Sharp Zaurus SL-5600 that I have had stored for over a year and thought I would see if anyone was interested for either a sale or trade. I have the original box that has the 5600 (certainly used, screen protector a bit scuffed but screen itself in great shape), cradle, power supply, and original cdrom. In additiona, I have a USB sync cable that also powers the device (a little loose from usage but with a little pressure works just fine), an extra battery, an AmbiCom 802.11b card, a 512 meg CF card, a 256 meg SD card, a Hitachi 4 gig CF Micrdrive, and Pockettop keyboard.

I haven't turned this on in over a year, but last I used this I had OZ flashed on it, and one battery lasted about 2 hrs and the other about 1-1.25 hrs.

I haven't really touched this in a long time but I wanted to get this out to see if anyone was interested, and if so, I will charge up the batteries and test to verify the device is working correctly, clear out device, can reflash ROM, etc.

PM me with any questions!

(For Trades: I'd be interested in netbooks or mp3 players or if you have any gadget-y thing or accessory, just feel free to PM me and maybe something will work out!)

Hi All,

I'm a big fan of KOrganizer/PI and use it on my 5600, Linux desktop, and Windows Desktop at work. I've recently gotten into David Allen's "Getting Things Done" time management ideas and reading many productivity websites regarding that.

I wanted to share some of my own experience in regards to GTD and things I'm doing with Zaurus and KO/PI. I've posted a blog entry at:


Hopefully will give users some ideas on ways to setup their own systems with KO/PI and also maybe highlight some of the neat things about KO/PI.

Thanks to everyone who has put the time into making KO/PI!

Hi All,

I'm running OZ 3.5.4 and using XMMS Embedded. Everytime I close XMMS (or it happens to shutdown) and then restart, the list of files I had in my playlist is emptied. Does anyone know of any way to get the playlist to stick?

Hi All,

I went to install the sharp-compat-libs today on my 5600 with OZ 3.5.4. I get a postinst error on install, and after looking around for solutions found good information on irongeek.com. I had to do it a little differently so I thought I'd post it here:

1)cd into /etc/init.d and issue the following command:

touch quickexec

2)I installed to home instead of to root, so ran this:

ipkg install -d home sharp-compat-libs

Because there is a dummy quickexec file, this will succed in installing.

3) go to /etc/init.d and remove the quickexec dummy file

4) issue the following:

ipkg-link add sharp-compat-libs

to link in from home to root. This will also link in the real quickexec file which all the symlinks installed in the postinst script need to point to.

That's it! It's not a fix for the package postinst script, but it is a workaround. Hope that helps!

Hi All,

After reading other posts, I got my Pocketop keyboard working with OZ after killing the irattach process. I was wondering then what the IRDA Applet is supposed to do when you click "Disable IRDA", as it didn't kill irattach, and if irattach isn't killed then the pocketop won't work.

Since I likely won't ever use IR for beaming, what's the best way to disable irattach from running on the Zaurus altogether, but still have the ability to turn it on if one wants to?
