I just dug my Z-5500 out of storage after a long hiatus, and flashed it with Qtopia 2.1.2.

Upon starting up, I tapped the screen once to start the setup, then went through the calibration procedure. However, no matter how many times I performed calibration, it simply repeated all over again.

Thinking it was a problem with the ROM, I flashed it again with OZ 3.5.4 as well, with the same result (calibration kept on looping).

This is a very strange error, but hopefully the machine is usable somehow - any suggestions?

I'm trying to get opie remote to work on my recently flashed zaurus, and on startup, and every time you click a remote button, it comes up with:
"couldnt connect to socket!"

I'm using OZ 3.5.3 (Opie), and I've installed the following packages on top of the vanilla opie rom:

lirc 0.7
lirc-modules 0.7
opie-help-en 1.2.0
opie-help-en-locale 1.2.0
opie-remote 1.2.0
opie-remote-help-en 1.2.0

Also, once I've managed to get opie-remote to work, how exactly do I go about using it? (sorry, I'm new to all this smile.gif) I need a lirc.conf for my remote, right? (I know www.lirc.org has some - other sources?).

Also, what if I want to control multiple devices (eg dvd/vcr/tv etc.) - can I merge the different lirc.conf's together? Finally, how do I go about creating a lirc.conf for my own devices - is there a learning mode in lirc/opie-remote?


PS: Somebody mentioned a similar issue on handheld.org ML here, but there doesn't seem to have been a reply.

Does anybody know if it's possible to make some kind of adapter to let you use a normal full-size PS/2 keyboard via the serila port on the bottom of the Zaurus 5500?

If anybody could provide info on making one, that'd be great? Or even better, make one and I'll buy it off you biggrin.gif.


PS: Is serial port the proper name for that port on the bottom? Mine just says Sharp I/O Port.

I'm wondering if it's possible to use my Zaurus 5500 as a universal remote control, ie to control televisions, dvd-players, or anything else with an IR interface?

I've taken a look at Opie Remote, and was wondering if anybody had any experience with this program. How effective is it, and do you have any hints/tips/erratta/notes?

Also, is the range of the Zaurus too short to be useful? Exactly how much range have you guys managed to get out of it? If the range is too short to be useful, are there any cheap solutions to inreasing it? (eg IR repeaters/extenders - price?)

Alternatively, do you think I would be better off going for some programmable IR remote with a touch screen, and which can be connected to my computer - anybody know of any such products/suggestions?

I was just wondering if anybody had any word on progress on pdaXrom for the Zaurus 5500? Is there any chance of a RC/beta release, or something similar?
