While looking for a way to port to IOData XGA-CF card to OpenBSD, I came across the Colorgraphic Voyager VGA. It seems like a real VGA output for the Zaurus...

So I checked if someone did some work for this on OpenBSD... Lo and behold! This is what I found... in the man pages!

CFXGA Man Page


Anyone has one of those cards and/or more information ?

Using this with a wearable display, and a Twiddler2, and a Socket Mobile Power (which I own and adds approx. 9-10h of usage on my SL-C3000 with a WiFi card plugged-in) would make a nice wearable computer...

I've just tested my USB Pharos GPS ( the one that comes with Microsoft Street and Maps, which I had for free... free Microsoft products ? wink.gif ) and it works great in OpenBSD... it is a USB to Serial device that gets mapped to /dev/ttyU0. cgps gives me my longitude/latitude/etc., but I did not find a mapping application in the ports. GPSDrive looks promising, and I was wondering if anyone compiled it on their Zaurus ?


It would be fun to do this...

Hi! I'm trying to get a working environment to build some applications on my loved spitz. I followed the instructions in OpenEmbedded | Getting Started, and started "bitbake gpe-image". After having solved three lil problems :

1. linux-openzaurus 2.6.17 doesn't compile due to syntax error
2. Freetype 2.2.1 link error (libz in wrong location)
3. gpe-mini-browser: fetch failed, server does not answer to "PASV". (I got the file elsewhere).

Everything then compiled without problems.

so I took the files in build/tmp/deploy/images and copied them to a CF card :

gnu-tar -> gnu-tar
updater.sh.spitz -> updater.sh
zImage-2.6.17-spitz-20060731163151.bin -> zImage.bin
gpe-image-spitz-20060801210605.rootfs.tar.gz -> hdimage1.tgz


It "flashed" OK. But on boot up, I get:

CODE
INIT: cannot execute "/sbin/getty"
... (last line repeated 7 or 8 times)
INIT: cannot execute "/sbin/getty"
INIT: Id "1" respawning too fast: disabled for 5 minutes
INIT: cannot execute "/sbin/getty"
... (last line repeated 7 or 8 times)
INIT: cannot execute "/sbin/getty"
INIT: Id "S" respawning too fast: disabled for 5 minutes



I'm kinda stuck there. Any help will be appreciated.

I just found this. It looks like a 802.11b CF WiFi card with an external antenna.

I tried searching on google, newsgroups and this forum, but I can't find information on chipset / compatibility. And the company's website is quite uninformative...


Anyone has experience with this card ?


EDIT: I keep getting mixed information from the resellers, like support for 802.11g, but I found this datasheet which seems trustable, and states that there is Linux support for this card (and that it does not support 802.11g). The external antenna model is the ACF3000-200. From the picture, the external antenna model seems quite smaller than other CF cards, which could be a blessing for typing on the SL-C3X00 with a WiFi CF card inserted...
