hello

as promised 1.0rc3 has been released on time.
you can get it from http://externe.net/zaurus/guylhem-rom/syst0006.dbk-1-0rc3

i am actually uploading it, along with its new readme and installation instructions. the md5sum is ae2c06f454b741bece74cdab8c664d46

bug reports would be welcome. the only known bug i have noticed is sharp music player has problem with the external media - no other application has that problem, and since i intend to replace non free application by free software application, that shouldn't be a problem for long.

a limitation i am aware of is the lack of cf drivers for all kind of usb and bluetooth cards, but you can easily compile your own kernel and drivers if needed.

i hope you'll all like the fruit of longs nights of work.

enjoy,
guylhem

Guylhem -
This is great. I downloaded and installed without a problem. Only difficulty is connection icon does not show up for built-in wireless. I added WLAN config, but no way to use it. In the previous version, the connection dialogue would pop-up when I brought up Opera. That doesn't happen now, so I don't know how to activate the link.

Gorth
Thanks for all the great work.
rip
i'll test it as soon as possible.
meric encore guylhem

re oss software... do you plan to make an up-to-date konqueror?
full kong runs in pdax.... so a roll your own static version might go, but it would be enormous.
Maybe redoing konq embedded for 2006? would be chance to get flash going, and other stuff opera doesn't handle. And I suppose it coul be done to handle file browsing stuff too...
might be cool if it wasn't too hellish to pull off.
wil check out the rom in a few days
guylhem
konq - no I don't like it a lot. webcore would be a better idea, with a qtopia interface. a lot of work however IMHO.

regarding the network, I'll check that and post a fix
rip
first impressions....

wifi doesn't work, i can create a wifi with get online but nothing happens then
sd bug persists, cf ok
when creating wifi lan ip, the "dot" key doesn't work, obliged to write it with the virtual keyboard.
package manager has the same bug as before... the only choice is internal flash and says someting went wrong (but he says sorry smile.gif)

same pbs after a reboot.
will test again tomorow.

thanks anyway and keep it up
guylhem
rip, can you detail the sd bug? here it works fine with a fat32 formatted sd.

the "." key when creating a lan ip is imho also present on the sharp rom.
Gorth
What I see on the sd mount problem is that sd formatted ext2 mounts as vfat to /mnt/card on guylhem rom. The same sd mounts correctly as ext2 on pdaxrom. Oddly when back to guylhem rom I issued "umount /mnt/card" (attempting to remount with -type ext2) the shell replied "Invalid argument".

It never occured to me to look at apple stuff smile.gif

hi guylhemn, tell me more about what you want me to tell you, any function you want me to check?
its a 128 mini sd card with its sd adaptator seen ok with my previous pdaxrom.
seems to be your icons in the tab documents.

for teh dot pb, it was working ok wih all the roms i tried before, even your previous guylhem's rom.

wink.gif
rip
doen some more test in the train , héhé

seems you've created some scripts for the wifi:
net.wifi.local
net.wifi.sniff
net.wifi.scanap
etc...

seems to wake up the wifi interface but no hotspot available at work to check.
will check it at home again.
the network tool in settings is not listing any wifi interface but "wifi accounts" are created and when i create an irda account for example, it is in the list and make the net icon appear but still no choice or any wifi.

also when i do a ikpg install it drops me a full list:
error: file not found: /usr/lib/lists/Guylem_Distribution
you probably want to run 'ipkg update'
mkdir: cannot create directory //home/tmp/ipkg/justreader/
permission denied

so tried in root, same issue
chmod 777 on / and on /mnt/cf and /mnt/card
same issue too.

note that i've reflashed from start this morning without any sd inserted and the same sd bug in tab appear.

hope it helps and tell me if you want me to test deeper but you'll have to tell me also the steps as i'm not a linux guru at all.
guylhem
Hello

Regaring the
- dot problem - I'll check that and see if I can fix it. If it works everywhere else I sure can fix it !
- sd - ditto. Can you please post me a copy of pdaxrom /etc/fstab and /etc/sdcontrol /etc/pcmcia/ide.opts? I did hardcode vfat in the latters since some people had issues else. umount works fine here. I also introduced an error in the sd init.d script which I'm fixing (path of sharp_mmc module)
- wifi scripts - that's because I introduced a mistake in /etc/wlan/wlan.conf. They won't work without a fix:
ESSID_wlan0=""
ENABLE_wlan0=y


I will release a updated version with these 3 bugs fixed soon. Yet the net wizard won't work yet- I have to check /etc /opt/Qtopia/etc and /home/zaurus from the previous release to see where is the mistake. If you are actually running the previous release, a tarball of these files could help fixing that faster.

Guylhem
rip
ok for the dot, i think it wos working fine in last guylhem release so you will find the pb i believe.
sd pb: hope you will find a fix .
hope also you will find a fix for programm install bug as it think its related to sd bug.

if wifi pb comes from typo mistake, it's cool, quick to resolve.

most important for me is the ability to install prog where i want: internal/cf/sd
then wifi.

merci guylhem et continue comme ca!
guylhem
for the dot problem - fixed

edit /opt/Qtopia/etc
look for String_Return
replace the ending 0xa1 by 0x01

Stupid typo !
rip
heu, what file exactly do i have to edit in etc?
rip
i suposed its in /etc/wlan/wlan.conf

but this file is empty, only the usual text... normal?

Regarding wifi.

To connect to a WEP enabled network I used this script:

ifconfig wlan0 $ZAURUSIP up
route add default gw $GATEIP



Regarding SD, just executing this, fixed my problems:

CODE
modprobe sharp_mmcsd_m
mount -o noatime /dev/mmcda1 /mnt/card/



BTW, mine is an MMC card so this may or may not work with SD.


Guylhem: Great work! Thank you very much!
rip
quick feebback, your trick made my sd seen by 6k
great!
will it be persistent? or needed to be done again?

will try the wifi script later on.

thanks you very much

It seems that the problem has something to do with sharp kernel module, maybe just loading it on startup fixes the problem even between reboots, will try it later.

mhhh sd card disapereared, reboot does not help, done your tip again but no joy, send me an error sg telling no such device
the_oak
I also got "no such device". Tried modprobing wlanctl-ng, wlan-ng, prism2, hostap, and everything else I can think of, but get "can't locate module whatever" response.
(Not really sure what I should be modprobing anyway, so these are just guesses.)

Try to reboot without the SD card.

If the trick does not work at all, look at /dev/mmcda* to see what devices are available and use those dev instead.

If there is no one, maybe you could reload the kernel module and create device nodes with mknod:

CODE
mknod  -m 644 /dev/mmcda b 60 0
mknod  -m 644 /dev/mmcda1 b 60 1
mknod  -m 644 /dev/mmcda2 b 60 2


And try again. If the error persists, tell us exactly what the error message is.

Good luck!

modprobe just loads kernel modules ("device drivers").

Those modules have nothing to do with SD card, they are wifi related.

To load wlan module you can issue a:
CODE
modprobe prism2_usb prism2_doreset=1


sharp_mmcsd_m is the sharp binary module for SD and MMC cards.

I am not able to reproduce your problem.

Maybe you can describe the steps performed before you got the error message and will try to reproduce it in my Z.

It was regarding this wlan script that I got the error "no such device" The SD card fix worked fine for me. But the wlan script complains as follows:

look at /usr/local/bin/net.wifi scripts. modprobe p80211, prism2_usb, then usbctl on 1. Now you will have device wlan0.

All that did for me was turn on the green light. I used the net.wifi.local script after putting my essid in the script.

the file to edit in /opt/qtopia/etc is keycode.tbl

regarding the wifi issues you must change /etc/wlan/wlan.conf

Just wondering, maybe there is something wrong with mounts. Is there any /mnt/card or /dev/mmcda1 in /proc/mounts? Trying to find out why you are having problems with SD I found /dec/mmcda1 mounted in /proc/mounts but not in /mnt/card so I tried (as root):

1) umount /mnt/card
2) rmmod sharp_mmcsd_m
3) modprobe sharp_mmcsd_m
4) mount /mnt/card

some commands displayed errors (none of them harmful) but cannot remember exactly which ones did work and which didn't.

This was a little bit wierd but haven't found why happened.

A typo here:
WEPEY=XX:XX:XX:XX:XX:XX:XX:XX:XX:XX:XX:XX:XX

should read WEPKEY=XX:XX:...
also XX:XX,etc should be your WEP key in HEX
and do not forget to put your network ESSID after MYWLAN=

And here, before:
wlanctl-ng wlan0 lnxreq_ifstate ifstate=enable

the module should be loaded with:
modprobe prism2_usb prism2_doreset=1

Very sorry for the inconvenience.

BTW, Guylhem has submitted to the forum the conf-files for wlan.
the_oak
I noticed the (WEPEY) WEPKEY typo and fixed that previously. I had also put my essid in the script. I do not have WEP set up. Should I set WEPKEY=none or something like that?

For the moment, I have reverted to my default Sharp rom, but I can re-install rc3 and test the new scripts Guylhem posted as well as your suggestions if he/you need them tested by other users. Just let me know, and I will be happy to test further. But if it is not necessary, then I will await rc4. Thanks!

regarding the SD - fix the path of the module in /etc/initd.d/sd start script. It needs sharp_mmc modules from /lib/modules , whick I moved from kernel/block to net/ (only because I put the modules I am not working on in a separate directory, to avoid accidently removing them as I did once or twice and add to ask here for the original files)

regarding ipkg install - found the problem. That's because I updated busybox and forgot to add support for tar options --no-same-owner and --no-same-permissions . Fixed

BTW here is the new busybox

Guylhem
rip
really sorry guylhem, as i told you i'm a newbie.
unzipped your busybox but din't where to replace it.
so guessed...
renamed to busybox.conf and replaced the existing one in /etc
but no luck, same pb after a reboot and reset
for the sd fix, i really didn't understood a word of what to fix/replace.

is it difficult for you to repackage a .dbk including all fixes , perhaps it takes a lot of time to do .
but for a newbie like me its difficult to know where to change things.

also for wlan txt file, replaced it and rebooted, same issue, no wlan account available after having created a new with get online.

or perhaps you could edit the first page of this thread with all the fix and path you've made (for an easier view)

no critisize at all, guylhem, just a way to make it easier for users like me.

I still see a prob w/sd mount, even after changing out the init.d/sd script. Boot messages post the SD service starting, the correct module is loaded, but the filesystem is still not mounted correctly. Directories do not display, even though mount -l shows it mounted ext2. The only way I have found to mount the sd successfully is to issue the command identified by orodriguez from the command line as root.

ok, first quick impressions:
dot pb fixed (as in your changelog)
sd mount fixed
prog install in internal memory ok.

wifi icon is still off (not available) even after having created an account through get online.
i'm still not able to install any pb either on sd and cf (greyed out).

testing still in progress.
guylhem
Hello

That's what I expected - I haven't fixed the networking icon issue yet. please use the wifi script meanwhile

Regarding installing to CF/SD, I'll have to dig it further. It may be due to missing links/band configuration.

Hopefully both issues will be fixed in rc5. Meanwhile, please keep looking for bugs guys ! If you don't report them I can't fix them.
rip
well, will continue.
could you quicly explain how to use the wifi scripts?
i'm able to launch them but what do i have to do then?

hope you will fix quicly the cf/sd install prog because it will block big prog install (opera 7.55?)

will continue testing. can count on me wink.gif

Hello

Cant calculate it right now. Hopefully the image is good since rip succeeded.
Could you please (if you still have the sharp rom) do the following for me on your Zaurus:

tar zcvf /mnt/cf/etc0.tar.gz /opt/Qtopia/etc/
tar zcvf /mnt/cf/etc1.tar.gz /etc/
tar zcvf /mnt/cf/etc2.tar.gz /home/etc/
tar zcvf /mnt/cf/etc3.tar.gz /home/zaurus/

It will create 4 files on your CF. Replace "cf" by "card" for a SD. Then please post each etc.tar.gz here.

That will help me fix both the install and the network icon bug by comparing my settings to sharp defaults
the_oak
I'll do it right now. Just a few minutes please.
