today I flashed from the original Sharp-ROM because I wanted to give OpenZaurus and OPIE a try. But there are several things where I didn't find my way around:
After setting up my "Network Settings" for Wireless-LAN (interface "wlan0") and hit the "Start/Stop"-button, I get the message:
"Starting interface failed"
Anyway, the WLAN-LED lights up green and when I leave the "Network Settings" and enter them again the 802.11b-connection is indicated "up". Also if I hit the "Start/Stop"-button again, there is a register-tab called "802.11b" with status-information about my connection (I even see the Quality of the WLAN-connection decline if I shild the built in antenna with my hands).
So I tried to connect to a web-site using Konqueror, but after some time I recieved the message
"Unknown host www.web.de"
This brought me to Problem 2:
I tried to get some information from "/etc/resolv.conf", but to get there was tricky because when I wanted to start the "Console" application in the "Applications"-tab it doesn't start but displays the message:
"Console was terminated due to signal code SIGSEGV"
How can I fix this to use the console-application from "inside" OPIE?
Back to the original "Problem Number One":
Alternatively I logged into the console via the "Start"-menu choosing "Terminal -> 1" and issued
# cat /etc/resolv.conf
to check my DNS-settings - but everything looked like it should.
told me that "wlan0" is up (with all the network-settings I previously put into my machine), but a
# ping -c 5 www.web.de
produced the message
ping: www.web.de: Host name lookup failure
After some time the screen turned darker and darker (I suppose the screen dimmed with the OPIE-timer even if I was in the "Terminal") and I hardly could make out what my machine was replying to my inquiries (not even button-pressing brought the screen back to light).
So my Problem 3 is:
How do I get back to OPIE after I locked into the Terminal from the "Start"-menu?
Thanks in advance for your help
