But I was wrong!

The card does work and it is detected in a standard hentges install.

But, I wanted to remove all the software that I do not use. I have no wireless network, no bluetooth, no need for infrared, so I removed loads of stuff including kernel modules, now the CF card is not detected.

When I try to mount from the command line it reports that /dev/hda1 is not a valid block device.

Any thoughts about the module/software that I should reinstall.

Sorry coredump for breaking your fabulous work.

Hi all

Please shoot me down if I am being stupid!

HRW has released but only for clamshells.
OpenZaurus appears to be heading towards kernel 2.6 exclusively.

Does this mean that development on SL-5xxx variants is at an end?
Or will future releases, say 3.6 be available?
Or will the project fork?

I am being curious, as my Collie is now faster, more stable and better equipped than it was when it arrived from Sharp ( A big thank you to all the developers/contributors), and I would like to think that it can be better still.

I would like to free up a bit of space on /dev/root by unistalling some packages and the re-installing them to SD.

However, I am sure that there are some that cannot be moved, as it would interfere with the workings of OZ.3.5.4

So is there a complete list of packages that is available, and is it marked ESSENTIAL, RECOMMENDED, OPTIONAL

With the understanding that:

ESSENTIAL should not be moved
RECOMMENDED could be moved but will perform better if left alone
OPTIONAL put it on the SD or CF card

If there isn't a list would it be possible to get one started.

I have to start by apologising to coredump, but I have been removing packages from your latest hentges rom, there is just too much for me?

When removing one of them the network no longer comes up, but I don't know which one?

Packages removed are:

about applet
qpe nmap
Tiny Kate (all of it)
opie eye

Would any of these cause the network to not start.

Hi all

Just wondering.

Can you use a Pretec Compact Camera or the HP Jornada Compact Camera with the Zaurus?

I would like to find out before I part with my not very hard earned pennies, after all curiousity killed the cat, but it didn't make him spend any money first.
