Hi,

I have some problems to get wifi working with 1.1.0beta1 and my wifi card Linksys WCF12.
I've tried this but no way sad.gif
I had this message before :

Does anyone has the same configuration as mine working ?

WCF12 works out of the box on an 860, if that's any help unsure.gif
plcg
Thanks.

Can you tell me what's in your /etc/pcmcia/config, /etc/pcmcia/hermes.conf and /etc/pcmcia/hostap_cs.conf ?
Just the lines about Linksys WCF12 and "device" hostap (beginning of file), of course. wink.gif

Thank you smile.gif

I answer to myself :
with hostap driver, be sure to choose "Operation Mode : Managed" in Network Settings.
And then, Linksys WCF12 wifi card works "Out of the box" smile.gif

With orinoco driver, it was "Operation Mode : Auto"

Gladit worked out! I think the mode was "managed" by default, but I can't be sure.

Does anyone know whether the kernel for the C-1000 & C-3100 has been significantly changed from RC12 to Beta 1.10? I'm also assuming that since the c-1000 kernel is made from C-3100 sources they are the same.

Evidently, there are some patches required to get the Orinico drivers working properly for the Socket WiFi cards in Kismet. They work fine for connecting to a network, but seem to not be able go into monitor mode. I've posted this bug and in the mean time have tried using a C-1000 RC12 kernel that was patched by cjb http://www.neonbox.org/zaurus/index.html Unfortunately, it didn't work. My C-3100 would boot. Of course, I may have screwed up while moving the C-1000 kernel from the folder in tools.tar to the C-3100 folder, but the flash seem to go without error. Before I backup everything and try again I was hoping someone with more knowledge than I could weigh in on the issue.

Cheers,

Ok,
Got pdaxrom working on my 6k, wifi works, startx worked, mostly all was good. Then I ran ipkg update and ipkg upgrade, and now I can't start x. startx results in the following message:
"Imageon_iniScreen()
:Bad file descriptor

Fatal server error:
no screens found

XIO: fatal IO error 104 (Connection reset by peer) on X server ":0.0" after 0 requests (0 known processed) with 0 events remaining"

If someone can point me in the right direction on that (where to find logfiles, what file got tweaked, etc) I would be much obliged. I tried a search, but probably didn't use the right terms, so if there is a thread somewhere, just point me in that direction with a "Silly Newbie" type comment.

Also, as an FYI, ipkg upgrade gets severly hosed when it sees that wget is outdated, since it first uninstalls wget, and then tries to wget the updated package. That one was an easy fix, just d/l'd a copy of the updated wget to a CF card from my PC and installed off that, but still, its a kinda silly bug.

QUOTE(drak2 @ Jan 2 2006, 02:31 AM)
Hi,

Changelog ?

Between rc12 and beta1 only minimum packages changed.

Is posible only:

edit /etc/ipkg.conf
ipkg update
ipkg upgrade ?

Thx.

you need to update /etc/ipkg.conf
placing first http://mail.pdaxrom.org/1.1.0beta1/Zaurus-SL6000/
then http://mail.pdaxrom.org/1.1.0beta1/Zaurus-7x0-860/

you don't need to upgrade as the feed changes only with a new release.

Now, you probably installed X with the driver for ati (760 etc..)
The easier way to fix this is probaly to reflash

I still have a problem where my Z goes to a blank white screen when it is left idle for a while. How do I get rid of this?

The worst part is this, if the Z suspends while this white screen is up, the Z goes to "sleep" such that I can't use it without "waking it up," but the screen does not turn off.

That is right, my Z is suspended with a white screen showing and the backlight on. The LED's even go off, just not the screen.

Needless to say, this doesn't do much for my batter life. sad.gif

Thanks to Laze and pdaXrom team for this great ROM!

Was so pleased that I made my second PayPal donation to this project!

Just installed it to my 3100 last night and so far works great!

My Ambicom WiFi card and my Socket 10/100 Ethernet card both work.

Only issue I've had is shutting down my Z...exited from pdaXrom, then did 'shutdown' from command line, then tried to turn off Z with 'On/Off' switch, but nothing happens. Doesn't turn off.

Anyone have this problem?

Anything I can do about it besides removing battery?

Thanks,

did you try running poweroff or halt?

somehow the keys in the console are screwy sad.gif, at least they are on my C3000.

btw archimark, did flashing pdaxrom on your c3100 do anything to your microdrive? are all the files on hdd3 still the same?
ArchiMark
Hi Meanie,

Well, I just checked as follows:

#df
......
/dev/hda1 ....../mnt/ide
/dev/hda2 ....../mnt/ide2
/dev/hda3 ....../mnt/ide3

#cd /mnt/ide3
#ls
Documents dict2 opt usr
debroot etc pocketworkstation
dict1 home swapfile

So it appears that it didn't change hdd3 content....

No, I ended up recompiling the kernel without the Hermes drivers and using newer drivers compiled seperately. See http://mail.pdaxrom.org/contrib/docs/kerne...mpile-3100.html

Don't tell me it would have been simplier to use the hostap drivers blink.gif

Not a bug in beta1 (which seems great so far as usual) but an older ipk which no longer works.

I really like nedit, particularly on pdaxrom and have it configured with syntax highlighting etc just how I want it. The nedit ipk from the stable feed has worked with every rc but doesn't seem to work any more with beta1.

I'm downloading the latest stable source for nedit to compile myself but was wondering if it might be possible to have it included in the release feed in future.

Many thanks for another great release. As soon as I can afford to, I will contribute some more $.

Mark

I fixed my nedit problem thanks to the following post (just in case anyone else is having the same problem)...

https://www.oesf.org/forums/index.php?showtopic=6390&st=15

Specifically,

export LD_PRELOAD=/lib/libgcc_s.so

did the trick.

Many thanks to DamienDixon, your very first post on the forums in September 2004 was my solution in February 2006!

Sorry if this is a bit off topic but I thought it would be simpler to reply to my original post.

Mark

Edit: I am an idiot... I was using nedit 5.4 from the stable feed instead of nedit 5.5 from the unstable feed! So many ipk's on my hd.... 5.5 is fine with beta 1.

Hi,

I have been trying the beta 1 on an SL-6000. It seems the Z will hang
during a suspend, when the following actions are performed:

start wifi
ssh into the Z
exit the ssh session
stop WIFI
press the power button to suspend

The backlight will go off, but the contents of the screen stay frozen. I
have to press reset and reboot to recover.

John
miskinis
Hi,

Just an update, ssh is not the culprit, as my 6000 just froze during
a suspend, and I had not ssh'ed into the Z as it was a fresh reboot.
I had started WIFI and shut it down before the suspend froze the Z.

I've installed a lot of packages, and would rather not reflash and
start again, just to whether or not the suspend freeze issue only starts
to happen after a certain package is installed.

Anyway, are other 6000 users seeing these suspend freezes?

John
miskinis
Well, I reflashed the 6000 two days ago, and I have not had any
suspend/resume problems yet. (No extra packages yet)

I do notice that the window manager (folks call it matchbox, but to me
it looks like the WM running is openbox) seems to restart when I resume
after many hours, but all is well after a few seconds, and my active windows
are all OK.

Is this the same thing I have with my 860, as described here?
https://www.oesf.org/forums/index.php?showtopic=17759&hl=
I have reflashed back to rc10 and the problem does not occur. I find that the WM restarts, and some windows like rox and dillo survive, but others like firefox do not. It is really annoying, and I reflashed to the beta a few times, but it kept coming back. So I'm back to rc10 and I will try to increment the rom up until it re-occurs. I really want firefox to pick-up where it left-off after a wake-up.

If there is a better solution I would sure like to hear it.
gromituk
As far as I know, this is the kludge to prevent the window manager hanging after the machine has been switched off for a while. It is annoying, but better to do this than to have to reset the machine (or kill the window manager via ssh if you happen to have a server running and remote access!).

Beta2 has apparently fixed this problem, although I haven't tried it yet.
macwiz
I tried Beta2 briefly. My Z would freeze while trying to access a text file on the SD card from SciTE. I need a Z that doesn't do flaky things at the moment so I went back to rc10, as I had no problems with it using that rom.
miskinis
Sorry, I don't understand what this "kludge" is. Is there some type of
"kludge code" somewhere (WM, X Server, something else?) that was
put in to circumvent some known problems with any (or perhaps all) window
managers when a Zaurus is suspended for a certain amount of time?

I remember posting about the noticed WM restart after along suspend, and at
the time I posted "everything is fine afterwards". I never left Firefox running though,
just simple X clients, so most likely all would not have been fine. smile.gif

In addition to wanting to know a little more about both the kludge and why it
was put in, I'm also very curious as to why Firefox and some other X clients fail. I
think it might be helpful to invoke Firefox from an xterm, and capturing the
output, after resuming and a client termination occurs. I install just about everything
to SD including Firefox, and perhaps the hang occurs due to the fact that
the SD isn't 100% usable immediately after a resume? (just a thought)

In the past, on a variety of *IX machines, I would often change window
managers on the fly. But I would start X11 a little differently, such the X
Server would not terminate when the WM did. I could then simply kill the
WM, and restart a different one at will. I never encountered an X client that
would have problems with this.

Another thought that came to mind, is that if any system time setting is done on a
resume, that could be a factor causing a hang. I figured I'd mention that also,
in case it rings a bell as something that might have been changed after RC10.

I have a feeling that this is indeed what caused the hang, and the kludge is to restart the window manager to avoid this situation.

Sorry to be so vague.

I wonder too - I also have an SL6000 and have never experienced the problems that others here talk about with time being wrong or freezing on resume. I have removed the time set/read from the suspend and resume scripts as I use atd and that locks the rtc anyway. Clock is always perfectly on time (well, as close as a computer clock ever gets). It worked on RC10 and RC11, now on RC12 (yet to try beta1). Maybe its a model-specific problem?

I've read somewhere on this forum that restarting the WM is indeed the fix for the freeze problem. It only appears to apply to matchbox/openbox (whatever it is) though; other WMs just get straight back into it...

Beta 2 bug:

Sometimes (often? usually?) when the Z boots up, it freezes after the line:
"Start CF services: [OK]"

It seems like it does this when there is no CF card in the slot. If there is a card in the slot I think it works fine.

I have a 760.

The only "fix" is to pull the plug and battery to make it reboot.

It did NOT do this with Beta1.

Thanks pgas, I'll be sure to keep my bluetooth card firmly plugged in then. smile.gif I usually do have it plugged in, so I wasn't sure at first why it would freeze at rare moments.

Does this also affect resume from suspend? It seems to, so I just want to confirm that it is the same "issue" that causes periodic "freeze on resume."

Another 1.1.0-beta2 issue.

Has anyone else noticed that the Z does not switch "power profiles" when unplugged? My screen does not dim, and it does not suspend after the "unplugged" time, it waits for the time listed for "plugged in" which I have set for pretty long.

(I did put in a bug report, but I find it is good to post here too to get feedback.)

I haven't used beta2, but the power management is handled by mb-applet-battery, see this discussion for details.

Hi,

Has anyone come up with a solid workaround for the suspend freeze
on the SL-6000 with 1.1.0beta1? Everything was fine for a couple
days after flashing, and now it will freeze on every suspend. I am
using the default window manager, and the power button.

I think I had this working in the past, but I can't remember which scripts
I hacked, and how I hacked them. I believe it was one of the apm scripts,
and/or taking an apm command out of some other script.

I hope someout out there with a 6000 has figured this out, if so PLEASE share!
It is *so* darn frustrating, and I think it's the only issue I have!

Is this a beta1 issue only? I am still using RC12 because it works fine for me, but have been meaning to update...

The one thing I have removed is all the hwclock and sltime stuff from the apm scripts because it slowed everything down, the clock is correct without it, and atd doesn't allow access to the RTC while running anyway.

What else is in your apm scripts? What about cards during suspend?
miskinis
Hi,

I think I'm going to reflash (to ensure a stock setup again), and try removing the
110hwclock script from the both the the /etc/apm/suspend.d and /etc/apm/resume.d
directories. Unfortunately the problem took a few days to surface, so I won't know right
away if I fixed it...

Does that sound like the most logical thing to do? Or are there more places?

Gee, I was not aware of sltime, thanks, I see the binary and a script under the
same name in /etc/apm/scripts.d/ but I only see a call to sltime in the
/etc/rc.d/rc.sysinit script.

Thanks, I'll report back in a few days if I manage to fix it by removing the calls to 110hwclock,

John

P.S. I forgot to mention, no CF cards, wifi/dhcpcd shutdown, and just an SD card inserted.
miskinis
Well, I just removed the 110hwclock file from both directories, and the SL-6000
did not freeze after 3 cycles of suspend/resume.

I did NOT reflash, so I can't guarantee that I did not delete or change
anything else earlier!

What do I need to install this on my new C700? It has old version of Cacko / Qtopia 1.5.4 on it.

I would like to install pdaXrom..

Does anyone have instructions? I have a 32mb CF card and will have a 1g SD after I take the 2G SD back that doesn't work in my Z.

I'm looking to install a version of linux that allows me to install perl, KDE, so on.

Is this what pdaXrom is?

Cheers,

It was a bz2 file..

Is this what I need? I untarred the file to my SD card and it looks like a linux file system. I didnt see the "3" files I needed to extract to the root of my card.

I have a C700 with Sharp/Cacko ROM and I'm wanting to get debian or something similar up and running.. With limited resource I would like to have a single install.

Ok,

I grabbed what I thought was the correct pdaXrom-builder file. This was in the downloads and about 25mb I think.
It was a bz2 file..

http://mail.pdaxrom.org/download/1.1.0beta...7.12.05.tar.bz2

Is this what I need? I untarred the file to my SD card and it looks like a linux file system. I didnt see the "3" files I needed to extract to the root of my card.

I have a C700 with Sharp/Cacko ROM and I'm wanting to get debian or something similar up and running.. With limited resource I would like to have a single install.

Any ideas?

Ok, so the link you gave me above will work with my c700?

For a little clarification-- after I reflash the images below.. what type of linux system will this be? Is it based of debian or some derivitive?

Not clear on if I can add packages like PERL and GTK2.0+??



I'm planning on using these instructions----

It works!

Here is my brief log:

Reboot
Do a NAND backup!

Download

Extract them and put these files on the SD card:
emergenc.img
u-boot.bin
updater.pro
updater.sh
autoboot.sh
kernel.img
rootfs.img

Pull plug & battery for 10 seconds to reset.

Put in SD card.
Put in battery and plug in.
Hold down OK while turning on.
Option 4.
Then SD (or CF if that is what you have I guess).
Then Y.

It shoudl start "Writing " lots of numbers!

Whatch it, when it says it is done and going to reboot, then HOLD OK down until the "pdaXrom emergency system" comes up.

You should see it "Erasing ..." with percent

then "Writing data to block ..." with lots of numbers. (Green LED flashes as it writes too, but the scrolling numbers are just as useful to know something is happening.)

Then at some point it finishes and starts booting.

The green LED is now your "Flash access" light, kind of light a hard drive light on a desktop. So you can tell it is working when the green LED is either dimly lit or flashing. This is useful since things seem to take their time to boot up, and leave you at odd places with no output.

I am now at # prompt!! Cool.

EDIT: no flicker problem once it is fully booted.

Now to see if I can make everything work just like before. Hmm, if I want it to work like before, why did I upgrade?

Is there a problem with tar in beta1? I can't make new ipks for pdaXrom using the SDK image natively on the Z.

When I put the files into a temp dir and then create the CONTROL directory etc. as per http://www.pdaxrom.org/index.php?showid=35&menuid=1

I get the following error:
CODE
tar: --exclude=CONTROL: Cannot stat: No such file or directory
tar: Error exit delayed from previous errors


I've done this a number of times before and never a problem. It's not the directory thing, because I have it there. And it's not the SDK image thing, because I tried it with the older 3.4.4 image too from RC12 and it gives me the same error.

I can't make any ipks now...

Anyone know what the problem is?
