Are these bad for us?
Those three are from the first boot:
Alignment trap: keylaunch (3398) PC=0x40239de0 Instr=0xe5102004 Address=0x0001abd5 FSR 0xc2cc3013
Alignment trap: keylaunch (3398) PC=0x402398d4 Instr=0xe5112004 Address=0x0001abd5 FSR 0xc2cc3013
Alignment trap: gpe-confd (3443) PC=0x401c6ff0 Instr=0x15820000 Address=0xbedc045b FSR 0xc2cf7813

gpe-mini-browser also triggers gadzillions of these

From the Synergy homepage: http://synergy2.sourceforge.net :
Synergy lets you easily share a single mouse and keyboard between multiple computers with different operating systems, each with its own display, without special hardware. It's intended for users with multiple computers on their desk since each system uses its own monitor(s).

In short, with synergy you can control your handheld with your computer mouse and keyboard...

I patched synergy 1.3.1 to compile on Familiar (which uses diet-x11).
The synergy client was successfully tested on a simpad, but should work on any handheld (please send me some feedback if it doesn't)

I have the .bb and patch ready, if any maintainer would like to review these and include them in the Familiar git.

Thanks to Thomas Winkler for testing.

Here's a message from that topic, can anyone help identify that bootloader?
Berend, could you please transfer it back to the PC, using the "save" bootloader command (see http://www.handhelds.org/handhelds-faq/bootldr.html), so that we can archive it somewhere?
Concerning a modern image suitable for the CL4/TSinuspad, what do you (CL4 users) think of this one: http://devernay.free.fr/hacks/opensimpad/2...ad.rootfs.jffs2

I removed games, some themes, etc. so that it's now under 13Mb. It still has the wonderful gpe-mini-browser. After installation, you can still customize it by adding/removing packages. (for the future: if the link above is dead, try browsing from http://devernay.free.fr/hacks/opensimpad/ )

I've put some personal CL4 notes below, For now I'll await reactions here.

I was wondering if the following was the most recent version of the hh.org bootloader:
Do you remember if you finally got it to work on the CL4/sinuspad?

the bootloader does work on the CL4's with a bit of effort, but I'm not sure anymore which one I'm using, I find it hard to keep all the versions apart and I've tried several of them. It identifies itself as:
>> Compaq OHH BootLoader, Rev 2-21-13 [BIG_KERNEL] [MD5] [MONO]
>> 04-11-20_15:58

Before loading a new image, the partitions must be set by hand to prevent the pad from erasing beyond its memory boundaries. After the first boot the partition table can be put into /boot/params and it will boot without further trouble. I'm thinking maybe this could be packaged into an image?

Then there's the problem of finding an image. Most images won't fit in the 16MB, I build a standard gpe-image which resulted in 20 MB. After leaving most of the GPE apps out it is possible to get it down to about 14MB, but such an image is hardly usable. If it's much larger the first boot will fill all space left with the initial configuration.

Plucker works, but I'm not real friends with it and have to resort to reading plain text in a console. Cumbersome, but at least I can read in bed. Also there's some strange freeze/crash which I haven't reproduced yet.

boot> partition delete root
boot> partition delete home
boot> partition define root 0x40000 0xe00000 16
boot> partition define home 0xe40000 0x1c0000 0
boot> load root
(load image via ymodem, the pad will check the image, erase flash and write it)
boot> boot

I'm not sure what the partition types should be but I found these somewhere and they work.

set linuxargs "mtdparts=sa1100:0x00040000@0x00000000(bootldr)ro,0x00fc0000@0x00040000(root) noinitrd root=/dev/mtdblock1 init=/linuxrc console=ttySA0 rootfstype=jffs2 jffs2_orphaned_inodes=delete mem=32M"

Hi there,
Zecke changed the default kernel for simpad builds to 2.6.11-hh2oe1_cvs, does that mean than it now works at least as well as good ol' 2.4? What's its status?

The changelog is not very explicit on this:

ChangeSet 1.3353.2.2 2005/05/22 20:19:36 zecke@handhelds.org
Be mean cset. Use the 2.6 kernel as default. It is not perfect
but it doesn't conflict with the OpenSIMpad 0.9.0 release goals. Now
it will also feature a complete 2.6 kernel...
conf/machine/simpad.conf 1.24 2005/05/22 20:19:34 zecke@handhelds.org
Be mean use handhelds-sa-2.6 as default

OpenEmbedded puts all packages in one place, how do I split them into feeds such as those in the OZ distibution (base, opie, etc...) ?
There used to be an OpenEmbedded target for that (bitbake opie-feeds) which has since disappeared, so I guess there is some kind of script lying around that I could run.

P.S.: my goal is to make feeds for OpenSIMpad available the same way.
