21 Jan 2006
Thanks you ZDevil.
ZDevil dont have C3000 but he help me alot.
Thanks you yongyan99.
yongyan99 taught me a dual boot method that starts pdaXrom very easily.

My C3000 is now using
1.Special kernel v18a-C3000
2.Sharp ROM 1.01JP
3.pdaXrom rc12+KDE

This is a dual boot method for the C3000 that installed the pdaXrom Rc12 and the Sharp ROM.(You may try other ROM)
1.It does not affect the Sharp ROM.
2.It does not mess up the original partitions (hdd1 and hdd2)
3.It does not affect Sharp ROM sync with PC. Because Hdd3 is still Fat32.
4.A dual boot menu for you to choose which ROM to boot when each time you reset or reboot the Zaurus.
5.Most of the built-in softwares in KDE works.
I haven't tested them very thoroughly.
Honestly,it has also some problems,such as wifi,suspend,On/off.
Anyway, KDE is a great and beautiful window manager.
I strongly invite you to have a try and join the pdaxrom family.

Backdrop:
The factory default C3000 HDD has been divided into Hdd1,Hdd2,Hdd3.
CODE
Hdd1 contains ROM files (ext3)
Hdd2 holds Qtopia files and System files (ext3)
Hdd3 is for storage (Fat32)

I divided Hdd3 into two partitions, hdd3(Fat32) and hdd4(ext3)
So,it becomes like this...
CODE
Hdd1 contains the ROM files (ext3)
Hdd2 holds the Qtopia files and System files (ext3)
Hdd3 is for storage (Fat32) 3GB
Hdd4 is for pdaXrom (ext3) 478MB



The whole installation process consists of 8 steps summarized as follows:
1.Copy the required files to SD card and install unpack tar and bz2 ipks to Sharp ROM.
2.Hdd partition and reformat hdd3 to hdd3+hdd4
3.Copy and unpack pdaXrom files to hdd4
4.Setting the dual boot files.
5.Give root permission to all pdaXrom files.
6.Load pdaXrom to create some necessary files.
7.Install KDE files into pdaXrom (hdd4)
8.Boot pdaXrom with KDE directly....
~~~~~~~~~
9.If you don't like pdaXrom, you could use the last step to restore original hdd3 partition size..

----------------------------------------------------
Step1.Copy the required files to SD card and install unpack tar and bz2 ipks.
First make a folder call "pdaxrom" in a SD card.
Place these 12 files below onto the SD card.
pdaxrom files location: /mnt/card/pdaxrom/files
1.init
2.pivot_root
3.startd
4.startx
5.kde_lite_symlinks_3.5.0_armv5tel.ipk
6.squashfs_2.2r2_armv5tel.ipk
7.armutils_1_arm.ipk
8.gtar_1.13.25-1_arm.ipk
9.pcre_5.0_armv5tel.ipk
10.qpe-terminal-ja_1.5.0-3_arm.ipk (if needed,it is in the installation CD)
11.root-akita.tar.bz2 <-pdaXrom rc12
12.kde_lite_3.5.0.squashfs
File 1-10 are packed and download the [attached file].
File 11 root-akita.tar.bz2 download http://www.oesf.org/forums/index.php?showtopic=15900, first paragraph "here".
File 12 kde_lite_3.5.0.squashfs download http://mail.pdaxrom.org/contrib/misc/

In Sharp ROM
1.Backup your Sharp ROM to SD or CF card.
2.install armutils_1_arm.ipk
3.install gtar_1.13.25-1_arm.ipk
4.install qpe-terminal-ja_1.5.0-3_arm.ipk (if needed)
-----------------------------------------------------
Step2.Hdd partition and reformat hdd3 to hdd3+hdd4
Hdd3 partition divides into hdd3 and hdd4
Remove the CF card.
In the Sharp ROM, run Terminal.
CODE
$ su
# cd /
# mount -o remount,rw /
# mkdir hdd4
# mount -o remount,ro /
# umount /hdd3
# fdisk /dev/hda

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
This step uses the following commands.
Read it.
You would have an idea what you are doing.
Command (m for help): m
Command action
    c toggle the dos compatiblity flag
    d delete a partition
    n add a new partition
    p print the partition table
    q quit without saving changes
    t change a partition's system id
    w write table to disk and exit
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Command (m for help): p               <-print the partition table
      <-hda3: 7936-1021=6915, hda3 size~3.48GB
  Device Boot    Start       End    Blocks   Id  System
/dev/hda1             1       204    102784+  83  Linux
/dev/hda2           205      1020    411264   83  Linux
/dev/hda3          1021      7936   3485664    c  Win95 FAT32 (LBA)

Command (m for help): d     <-delete hda3 partition,
Partition number (1-4): 3

Command (m for help): n               <-add a hda3 partition,
Command action

Using default value 1021
Last cylinder or +size or +sizeM or +sizeK (1021-7936, default 7936): 6985 <-6985~3GB ,[(6985-1021)/6915]*3.48=3.0

Command (m for help): n               <-add a hda4 partition
Command action
 e extended
    p primary partition
p                                                 <-primary partition

Last cylinder or +size or +sizeM or +sizeK (1021-7936, default 7936): 6985 or Enter

Command (m for help): t            <-change a partition's system id
partition number (1-4):3
Hex code (type L to list code): c   <-(Win95 FAT32 (LBA))

Command (m for help): p           <-p print the partition table
  Device Boot    Start       End    Blocks   Id  System
/dev/hda1             1       204    102784+  83  Linux
/dev/hda2           205      1020    411264   83  Linux
/dev/hda3          1021      6985   3006360    c  Win95 FAT32 (LBA)
/dev/hda2          6986      7963    479304   83  Linux

Command (m for help): w         <-write table to disk and exit

# mkdosfs -F32 /dev/hda3         <-format hdd3
# mount /dev/hda3 /hdd3
# cd /hdd3
# mkdir Documents                   <-make a folder named "Documents" so that Qtopia can recognize files contained in /hdd3
# reboot

In Sharp ROM, run Terminal again.
$su
# mke2fs -j /dev/hda4              <-format hdd4 -j:Create the filesystem with an ext3 journal  
(18 lines comes out)
# mount -t ext3 /dev/hda4 /hdd4
#exit
$exit

Now, Qtopia recognized a new CF card. That is hdd4.

Note:
In the Sharp ROM, if you want to edit hdd4.
You are needed to mount hdd4 before editing.
CODE
$ su
# mount /dev/hda4 /hdd4
# mount -o remount,rw /             <-(optional)

----------------------------------------------
Step3.Copy and unpack pdaXrom files to hdd4
Copy and unpack pdaXrom files.
I copy the pdaXrom files to hdd4 because the mircodrive unpacks files(pdaXrom has more than 3000files) is n times faster than doing so in SD card.
CODE
$ su
# mount /dev/hda4 /hdd4
# cp -r /mnt/card/pdaxrom /hdd4
# cd /hdd4/pdaxrom
# bzip2 -d root-akita*        <- wait 6mins,it will replace the root-akita.tar.bz2 to root-akita.tar
# gtar -xvpf root-akita*          <-wait 6mins
# mv -f /hdd4/pdaxrom/root-akita/* /hdd4
# cd /hdd4
# gtar -xvpf root/.var*
# gtar -xvpf root/.home*
# gtar -xvpf root/.dev*
# rm -r tmp
# mkdir tmp

--------------------------------------------
Continuing..
Step4.Setting the dual boot files.
Setting Dual Boot files
CODE
# cd /hdd4/pdaxrom
# mount -o remount,rw /
# rm -f /sbin/init                       <-delete sharp rom's init
# cp init /sbin                           <-copy init to Sharp rom only.
# chmod 777 /sbin/init
# cp /sbin/chroot /hdd4/sbin
# cp pivot_root /sbin <-hdd2
# cp pivot_root /hdd4/sbin
# chmod 777 /hdd4/sbin/pivot_root
# cp startd /hdd4/root               <-anywhere you like in hdd4
# chmod 777 /hdd4/root/startd
# rm -f /hdd4/usr/X11R6/bin/startx
# cp startx /hdd4/usr/X11R6/bin/startx
# chmod 777 /hdd4/usr/X11R6/bin/startx
# reboot

-------------------------------------------
Step5.Give root permission to all pdaXrom files.
CODE
D+B+reset (runlevel 4)
1.Hold D and B key and Reset at the same time.
2.Hold D and B,put back the battery cover.Press On.
zaurus login: root
# cd /
# mkdir hdd4
# mount /dev/hda4 /hdd4
# chroot /hdd4
# ln -s /usr/X11R6/lib/* ./
Using fallback suid method                <-message comes out
# cd /
# chown root.root -Rh ./
Using fallback suid method                <-message comes out
# exit
# reboot

--------------------------------------------
Step6.Load pdaXrom to create some necessary files.
First load pdaXrom
CODE
Boot menu enter: 2(pdaXrom)
First loading. It will create some files for future use.
login: root
# cd /
# /root/startd
Stylus calibration screen comes out.
Matchbox launch.
X->Exit->OK

--------------------------------------------.
Step7.Install KDE files into pdaXrom (hdd4)
CODE
D+B+Reset
login:root
#cd /
# mkdir hdd4
# mount /dev/hda4 /hdd4
# mount -t proc /proc /hdd4/proc
# chroot /hdd4
# cd /pdaxrom
# ipkg install kde_lite_symlinks_3.5.0_armv5tel.ipk  
# ipkg install squashfs_2.2r2_armv5tel.ipk
# cp kde_lite_3.5.0.squashfs /usr/lib/kde
# rm -f ~/.xinitrc
# ln -s /usr/lib/kde/bin/startkde ~/.xinitrc      
# exit
# reboot

----------------------------------------------
Step8.Boot pdaXrom with KDE directly....
CODE
Boot menu
Enter 2(pdaXrom)
# /root/startd
Enter KDE..
A Setting Menu..
hint: Hold "Address" button on Z keyboard so that you can move the window up and click the "next"  key.
Install pcre_5.0_armv5tel.ipk, lots of program need it.
1.click K on the bottom
2.[run command]
3.enter "qpkg" , run
4.Click "folder" icon, choose pcre_5.0_armv5tel.ipk, it locates at /pdaxrom.
Enjoy!

The next time boot pdaxrom using the same steps.
CODE
Boot menu
Enter 2(pdaXrom)
# /root/startd

------------------------------------------
Step9.Restore original hdd3 partition.
CODE
Remove CF card.
$ su
#umount /hdd3
#umount /hdd4 [if you mounted]
#fdisk -l   <-check the current hdd partition status

Dear Zbedic Authors,
i am using Zaurus SL-C3000 with these files below.
1.zbedic_0.9.6-0_arm.ipk
2.zhen-0.9.0.dic.dz
3.en-0.9.0.dic.dz
4.enzh-kk.dic.dz
5.en-wikipedia_0.9.5_20050209.dic.dz(412MB)

Yesterday,I tested the new zbedic.
i found that ...
1.No matter the wikipedia file is stored at SD card or c3000 HDD,
the searching speed and typing words speed of Wikipedia is slow.
2.decreasing the valus of [Words in list] to minimal 8,it shows a faster response.
3.Since i have installed Wikipedia,the Zbedic programe starts slowly.


I hope to add a button of turning off the incremetal search feature,
so that we can start search after the whole word is typed.
Perhaps,this may have a faster response when we are using Wikipedia.

or

decreasing the minimal values of [Words in list] .
But i think this minimal values[eg.1,2] may not be convenient for using the other small size dictionaries.

Thank You.
