So I got a mini-A USB adapter and now I'm trying to get my (generic) USB keyboard to work with the Zaurus (c3k, stock.) I've done

insmod usbcore
insmod usbkbd

but when I plug the keyboard in, nothing happens. There's no movement in dmesg or anything.

bash-2.05# lsmod
Module Size Used by
usbkbd 2976 0 (unused)
usbcore 63264 0 [usbkbd]
usb-monitor 6496 0

squashfs 31344 1 (autoclean)
prism2_cs 69584 1
p80211 18864 1 [prism2_cs]

anyone know what might be wrong?

I'm playing around with the cross-compile toolchain at nautilus6.org, testing it out by compiling Mille Bornes from bsdgames.

It works all right on my machine (c3000), but I'd like to know if it works elsewhere. In particular, I can't remember whether or not the libncurses (/lib/libncurses.so.4.2) is the stock one or if I got it from an ipk somewhere (I think it's stock because I don't see anything curses-related in 'ipkg list', but I installed and uninstalled a lot of random stuff when I first got the Z.)

The binary (no ipk) is at http://www.taedium.com/zaurus/mille-arm.exe.

It's an old game so it doesn't deal with large fonts/small screens -- too narrow and you lose the right (scoreboard) side. Too small of a screen will seg fault.

This sounds stupid, but I can't find where my nethack went. I installed qt nethack and that went all right. I changed the permissions in /opt/Qtopia/games/lib/nethackdir and was able to start it up from the terminal command line and all. But then I went back to the terminal and now I can't get back to the nethack window. There's no icon or anything on the bottom bar. It's strange and not a little frustrating.

Okay, I'm not so far into the game that I don't mind killing the process or whatever, but I'd still like to know if there's some general way to switch between running processes (like C-Tab in Windows.)

This is on a stock SL-C3000.

I'm having an intermittent problem with vi (stock vi, stock c3000). Sometimes I can open and edit a file, but other times, I get an error

garbage() failed to read oldhdr??[More...]
Trouble writing header to tmp file

and the file doesn't load. If I quit and try to edit the file again, the error changes to

<filename> is busy.

Anyone know what this is all about?

The bargainpda review says that the Netfront browser "supports lots and lots of keyboard shortcuts", but so far I haven't been able to figure out how to use them. Google finds lots of Netfront shortcuts, but for the Series 60 (Nokia cell phone). Anyone know how to get these legendary shortcuts working?
