My SL6000 is starting to show signs that the battery is dying. It doesn't last as long on a full charge as it once did.

I did some quick searching this evening looking for replacment batteries but only found one at Streamline for $150! blink.gif

Do any of you know of other locations that might be cheaper?

I have an app that I wrote for my SL5600 that used SQLite and JDBC. When I tried running it on my SL6000, I'm getting error that "java.lang.NoClassDefFoundError: java.sql.SQLException".

I did some searching and stumbled upon a guys page who had documented that the Personal Java didn't support JDBC on his 7** or 8** series? Instead, he had loaded Jeode for his application.

Has anyone gotten JDBC working on the 6000?

Edit: Just found the link about JDBC not working on a SL750: https://www.oesf.org/forums/index.php?showtopic=4410&hl=jdbc

I managed to get MySQL to run on the 6000 without changing the userid to root - it runs under the id daemon. It's been a lot of trial and error but here's how I think I did it.

I wanted to store my databases on SD so I created the directory 'mysql' on sd.
mkdir /mnt/card/mysql

To tell MySQL that the database storage area is in this new directory, edit the file /etc/mysql/my.cnf and comment out the old 'datadir' line and add a new one.
datadir         = /mnt/card/mysql      
#datadir                = /var/lib/mysql

Go to the /mnt/card/mysql directory. All databases are stored in this directory as subdirectories. You need to set up the 'mysql' control database here too and copy the contents from the original install location. The tables in this database control the actual running of MySQL. You have to change the ownership of the new directories to the userid & group of 'daemon'.
cd /mnt/card/mysql
mkdir mysql
cp /var/lib/mysql/mysql/* mysql/
cd ..       <== this should put you at /mnt/card
chown -R daemon:daemon mysql/

As root, start the database management system:

Any messages should go to /var/log/mysql.err

To stop the database management system:

I got my 6K two days ago and the display is amazing. cool.gif

But I was disappointed to hear that it still has that blasted alarma300 wave file as the default sound and that it can't be changed. I was obsessed with finding a fix for it on the 5600 and never did find a solution. It appears as though the 6000s have that same sound. mad.gif

I really hate sitting in a meeting with Palm and WinCE owners and having my alarm go off. Hey, look at me, I run Linux, MySQL, Apache, X11, and all kinds of freaking other stuff but I can't change that sound!

For those who have a 5x00 & a 6000 (or even a C-series), I'm confused and have a question. Although the resolution sounds great and the desktops that people are showing on the forum look terrific, it's still only a 4" screen so are the letters still about the same size? When you run Konsole, don't you have about the same number of characters across the screen? I'd think that if you managed to get 60 or 80 chars then the font would be too small to read? I'm on the fence about getting one and trying to justify the jump from a 5600.
