Threw my trusty SL-6000 on ebay. I love it, but I just don't use it enough anymore.

I'll be happy to ship it for free if you mention you're from here



(I haven't seen one of these for sale recently, so please let me know if my prices are completely out of line)

Anyone else having problems with SD cards? I chroot to my debian install on /mnt/card/debroot, and everything works just fine for an hour or two, but eventually, without fail, everything will start to segfault and require a reboot. I'm going to try a different card to make sure it's not a hardware thing, but this very same card worked no problem on the sharp rom. Just figured I'd check and see if I'm the only one having this problem before I try and track it down.

Figured I'd put this here in case anyone else runs in to the same problem. A coworker of mine tried to flash back to an older sharp rom because some software he was trying to work didn't run properly on tcKrom 1.0 - apparently at some point he messed something up, because it didn't work. He tried to put tck back on, and it started hanging at the "INIT: version 2.68 starting" (something like that - don't remember it exactly unfortunatley) line - we tried putting every different rom I could think of back on it, but none of them ever got any farther. I noticed I could still get to the reset-D-P menu, so I ran all the internal flash diagnostics there, and everything seemed kosher. Grabbed an OLD (like 1.something old) romimage, flashed it, and the lights only stayed on for like 2 seconds - after some digging, I found that contrary to what the downloads section here says, old roms need to be named ROMIMAGE rather then Ospack (newer ones seem to be Ospack though) Got a 1. rom on, but it wouldn't even turn the power light on (I think it may have been a 5000 rom, after I did some more digging) so I grabbed 2.12 (I think it was 2.12) flashed from the reset-D-P menu, and this time I got much farther - got a screen full of errors and then a 'enter root passwd or press ctrl-d to continue' screen - when I get that on any of the servers at my office, it tends to mean the drive needs a good fscking but that didn't seem to be the case here. Since I had got much farther, I reflashed the newest OZ on a hunch, and wouldn't you know, the thing works like a charm now.

I had tried *EVERYTHING* and we were about to send the thing back to sharp

sorry for the long read, but hopefully this will help somebody out, and perhaps save a zaurus that's on it's way to the scrap heap.

So, I installed pocketworkstation on my SL-6000 a few days ago, and it's pretty damn nifty. I haven't switched back to qtopia even once. So, that made me think- if I've got full blown debian installed, why do I even need Qtopia etc. anyway? So.. is there a way I can install Debian, but not have it run on top of the sharp rom? I'm pretty familiar with debian, but not with how everything on the zaurus runs - if it can be done, but is pretty difficult, I'm still willing to give it a shot.

I apparently managed to break a pin in the CF reader on my SL-5500, so now it's up on ebay. Without CF, the thing is useless to me - I'm sure it can't be that hard to fix, but I'm not good with tiny electronic components. Gave me an excuse to pick up an SL-6000 on ebay though.

Anyway here's the link
