Hey All,

I am selling my less than a year old Zaurus SL-C1000 and accessories on EBay. You can click on the link to check out the pictures and total description, but this is the basic run down:

The auction includes the following:

* Zaurus SL-C1000 itself
* Original Box, Manuals, and CDs in perfect condition
* Ambicom 802.11b Wireless CompactFlash Card (WL1100C-CF)
* Viking 512MB Compact Flash Card
* Crucial 128MB MMC Card
* USB Host Cable
* Fellows Stowaway USB Folding Keyboard
* Targus Slim 4-Port USB 2.0 Pocket Hub
* Brando Ultra Clear Screen Protector
* 2x AC Adapters (Native US adapters, so no converter needed)
* Metal Replacement Stylus (stylus from a palm tungsten, fits perfect inside the Zaurus)
* Custom Handsewn Case (Made personally out of headliner material)

I live in the USA and am willing to ship to the same. I only take PayPal.

The full EBay link is here: Zaurus SL-C1000

I had a Zaurus SL-5500 for about a year and loved it so much that I sold it and upgraded to a then new c1000. I would be keeping it, but as it says in the ebay description my desktop (only computer) is quite old and starting to die on me, so unfortunately this beauty must go. If you think you could provide a good home to her please check out the link. The auction comes with everything you need to get up and running with the C1000.

If you have any questions or comments, do not hesitate to let me know. Thanks for looking.

I have recently upgraded my C1000's kerenel to Tetsu v18a. I did this for the sole purpose of getting MPPE support because according to Tetsu's site MPPE was supported. I need MPPE because at the university that I go to use the wireless internet you must connect through their VPN. The protocol that my school uses is PPTP w/ MPPE.

I have successfully connected to my school's VPN from my desktop using PPTP. So my plan was to get MPPE working for Tetsu then just compile the latest version of pptp-linux for my zaurus and be up and running. According to what I could make out from Tetsu's site, after installing the kernel I need to install both the kernel-modules_v18a_arm.ipk and then the mppe-modules_arm.ipk.
I did those two things but I got an error when I installed the kernel-modules_v18a_arm.ipk. This is what I got:

Configuring kernel-modules...depmod: /lib/modules/2.4.20/modules.ieee1394map is not an ELF file
depmod: connot read ELF header from /lib/modules/2.4.20/modules.pnpbiosmap

I also get this error everytime i try to do a depmod -a

I have tried to modprobe mppe after installing everything, but it cannot locate it. It is also not listed under lsmod. Does anyone know what is wrong with what I am doing? Any insight would be greatly appreciated.

Hey All,

I have decided to get rid of all my PDAs (both a Pocket Pc and a 5500 Zaurus) in order to upgrade to a clamshell Zaurus. I figure I would post this sale just incase anyone was interested in a IPAQ to install Familiar Linux on or just to use as is. With the proper setup, this device can run a version of linux very similar to OpenZaurus on this IPAQ. You can then install and run either Opie or GPE and all of the apps associated with those environments.

Here some information on Linux on the IPAQ 2210:

I have the IPAQ on ebay and this is what it comes with:
# IPAQ 2215 PDA
# Original Box, Manuals, and program CD
# USB Cradle
# AC Power Adatper
# Slip Case that came with the IPAQ
# Sena Leather Case
# Mugen Power 2000mAh Extended Battery
# Original 900 mAh Battery
# Stowaway XT Portable Keyboard with driver CD and manual

And Here is my auction on ebay:

If you have any questions let me know and Thank You for looking!

Hey All,

I am selling my SL-5500 after a year to upgrade to one of the clamshell models. This package is perfect for anyone who is looking to get started out with the Zaurus or anyone who is looking for a 5500 with some extra power. The Zaurus is up on ebay and it comes with the following:

* Sharp Zaurus SL-5500 PDA
* Set of Manuals and CDs that came with the device
* 2 Cradles and AC Adapters
* 2 Batteries (EA-BL06), both hold a very good charge
* 32 MB Compact Flash Card (needed for flashing different ROMs on the Zaurus)
* 2 Styluses

Here is the link for the auction:

If anyone has any questions you can either ask me on ebay or pm me a message here. Thanks for looking!

First of all I would like to say Kudos to the OZ team for all of their hard work and innovation with these latest releases.

I've noticed that the 3.5.2 feed has a development section and I eagerly went through it with hopes of finally having a recent, up to date development environment on my zaurus. I proceeded to install gcc_3.4.2-r3_arm.ipk, binutils_2., and their respective symlink pakages. The gcc command is now recognized on my Z, but when I try to compile a simple Hello World program:


int main(void)
    printf("Hello Zaurus\n");
    return 0;

I get:
stdio.h: No such file or directory

Does anyone have any insight to why it is not finding these basic libraries? Do I need to add something that is missing from my $PATH variable maybe?
