New sl-c3000 owner and after a few weeks I have some questions that I havent found in FAQ's or their solutions are not working for me. I am posting this in this section as I am running Cracko and my questions are generaly about this OS.
Here is what I have
SLC3Kb1 Cracko Linux
now according to the version tab:
Linux Kernel 2.4.20
ROM 1.11 JP
CF 802.11b card Adtec brand, works nice, kills battery quick. lol
short history. Own a ZR-3000 for many years and its still going strong. Just wanted a better more useable machine. so bought the 3000. slight passing knowlage with linux. No command line experance with it though.
Day 1. with all stock english ROM, crashed the To Do and Calender. did a factory reset, oops. lost Console so couldnt enter the command to translate.
Day 2. Showed everyone I know my cool new microcomputer, no one can read it as its in japanese still.
Day 3. found a backup image on a great German Zaurus site, lost that addy by the way. Restored to english sharp Rom. Installed Cracko SLC3Kb1 and ordered a CF wireless card.
Have been using it in this form sence then and enjoying it very much with a few exceptions, I think mostly Cracko related, maybe.
1. I can not umpack *.tar.gz files either with the command line gunzip -t fireox-1.tar.gz for example, now this is command line so I may be way off on that. I do know that when I try in the GUI I get a "No application is defined for this document. Type is application/x-gzip" I have looked on the internet for this x-gzip file and so far it says it should be included. I know I am missing something simple here and just feel kinda dumb. I build computers and am well versed in command line dos and Windows products, and I know linux is not that complicated in reguards to unpacking a gz file... Is there a plugin for the GUI I could get so I can open packages that way? I would really like to get firefox to run on this as I use it on all my home machines and prefer it.
2. Anyone know the proper format for video so that the vidoe player will work with the file? I have converted to many different file types, sizes ect.. and nothing seems to work.
3. Just for fun. Any Games this thing will play without having to type a hours worth of code to get to work? I have checked the Zaurus software sites and so far they dont work.
I am sure these questions may have been answered and Links to other threads would be great if they contain the answers in a simple format.
I use this mostly as a PDA and while the Cracko seems pretty basic in this area, but is has been stable, like linux is supposed to be, and I need that more. Any suggestions as how to get more from this fun little machine without messing with stability would be great. I do read alot of the FAQ's and info, but when entering at this stage its very easy to get overwhelmed and go play bf2 or something. hehe.
