My SL--6000L wouldn't turn on today, only to look at the back and see the battery had blown up (literally)!

I plugged it into AC without the battery and it just blinks the battery light.

Anyone know if there's a way to hack/mod it to boot on AC power without a battery?

The batteries are expensive.

Can someone post a link to a place where I can get the vorbis-plugin? The site where it is hosted is down and has been for a few months:


Sadly it seems pretty much everyone links to it there rather than hosting it. If I can get my hands on a copy I'll host a copy of it as well.

Thanks much!

I have a SL-6000; nothing remarkable about it. I did the whole, enable wlan0 on boot and restart thing and I can find WAPs. I've tried everything with several WAPs both with and without WEP and can get nothing to work.

Here's the lowdown. As I said I can scan for APs and select one, all the while the wifi LED blinks. Watching the ESSID in OPIE every few seconds it changes to a scrambled value for a split second and back to the correct value again. Looking at wlan0 with iwconfig I'm seeing negative values for Tx Pow, Signal Strn and Qual, no ESSID is listed. I can staticly assign an IP, but of course, it does nothing.

I'm totally confused as to what to try next. I've tweaked the /etc/network/interfaces file to every permutation I can think of both with and without OPIE to no avail.

I'm assuming OZ worked with the SL-6000 Wifi for someone or it would've been noted in the release notes, no?

So, anyone with a SL-6000 and working Wifi, please take a few minutes to _clearly_ document the steps to getting this working from a clean OZ 3.5.2 OPIE (or even GPE) install. I, and I'm sure other SL-6000 owners, would appreciate it much especially since 99% of OZ reference seems to be totally offline at the moment.

I have several other small issues I'm sure I can work out but this is the only showstopper for me at the moment.

Thanks a ton,
