Lately I came across a number of files which xmms would refuse to play on my C3000. Xmms on my desktop PC plays them fine. I checked those MP3's with the 'file' utility which prints:

Wamdue Project - King Of My Castle.mp3: RIFF (little-endian) data, WAVE audio, MPEG Layer 3, stereo 44100 Hz

Comparing the plugins on my desktop PC with those on my Zaurus I found out that I'm missing following plugin:

MPEG Layer 1/2/3 Player 1.2.10 [libmpg123.so]

Can somebody tell me where I can find this plugin for my C3000?

I'm looking for ways to automatically start the samba server whenever a Wifi CF card is inserted or resumed. And to automatically stop it when the card is suspended or ejected.

Is there anywhere a central script which catches globally those resume/suspend and insert/eject events so that I can add the corresponding samba start and stop commands there?

TIA for hints!

Lately I've installed pdaXrom 1.1.0beta1 on my C3000. What a fantastic ROM! The feature set is overwhelming. It turns your Zaurus into a real Linux-box as if you were sitting in front of your desktop PC. I even managed to compile my first apps after I've mounted the "zgcc-3.4.5.img" development image. A big kudos to the developers and maintainers!

In the meantime I've installed a number of packages and have done a lot of tweaks and settings changes. Although I'm very impressed by pdaXrom I also would like to try out other ROM's since I'm curious what they have to offer. However, in case I want to return to pdaXrom (which is more than likely) I don't want to lose all my personal customizations and don't want to re-do all the tweaks and changes in settings.

Therefore my question: What is the right procedure to make a complete backup of a padXrom system incl. all packages and personal settings? As far as I've learned this would include following steps:

1. Backing up the NAND of my C3000 to CF card, and

2. Backing up the whole /dev/hda1 partition of the microdrive (which I would do via network).

Could somebody confirm these two steps?

What I'm not sure about at the moment is the right procedure to restore these when I switch back from another ROM like OZ or Cacko. Could somebody explain?

Since yesterday evening I cannot access these standard pdaxrom feeds:



ipkg claims that the 'Packages' files cannot be retrieved, and trying to open the URL's with a browser gives a "Page not found" error.

Anyone knows what's up?
