I still have the bluetooth bluez,
load all four bluez packages, card detected, dun of phone detected with sdptools but ppp gets stuck and is unable to detect the dun address of my phone. Bluetooth starts fine according to terminal.

If anyone wants to post a brief idiot guide for how they got bluetooth to connect to a phone it would be greatly appreciated. I'll bet I'm missing something obvious.

In the meantime I'm stuck using cacko and xqt on my c700. Cacko has no problem detecting my phone. Miss using PDAXROM but broadband dillo bluetooth EVDO web surfing rocks and I can only do it with cacko.

I'm wondering if these two handy features can be added to the current version: smile.gif

1. A logging utility like 'script' that can make typescript of terminal session, or something like that, to make it easier to output anything on the terminal screen. Or is it already doable by using some available commands/scripts?

2. Mapping of the little screen swith(es) to suspend?
I'm just using a layman way to find out what the little switch(es) do on my C860. Xev prints this when I used a little screw to push the one right under the swivel hinge (but the other one above the key "1" doesn't give anything):

CODE
KeyPress event, serial 23, synthetic NO, window 0xc00001,
   root 0x33, subw 0x0, time 2229294461, (547,-271), root:(548,26),
   state 0x0, keycode 110 (keysym 0x1008ff74, XF86RotateWindows), same_screen YES,
   XLookupString gives 0 bytes:
   XmbLookupString gives 0 bytes:
   XFilterEvent returns: False

KeyRelease event, serial 23, synthetic NO, window 0xc00001,
   root 0x33, subw 0x0, time 2229294461, (547,-271), root:(548,26),
   state 0x0, keycode 110 (keysym 0x1008ff74, XF86RotateWindows), same_screen YES,
   XLookupString gives 0 bytes:

   state 0x0, keycode 110 (keysym 0x1008ff74, XF86RotateWindows), same_screen YES,
   XLookupString gives 0 bytes:
   XmbLookupString gives 0 bytes:

   state 0x0, keycode 110 (keysym 0x1008ff74, XF86RotateWindows), same_screen YES,
   XLookupString gives 0 bytes:


So it seems this switch behaves just like other keys and is mappable, doesn't it?
Under X it is mapped to XF86RotateWindows, not suspend. But what is the 'suspend' mapped to (not really the 'suspend' command in both X and sharp rom)? Checking the keymap for Sharp rom but no luck:

It would be a very welcome feature if the device can go suspend automatically upon folding up the screen, just like all we are enjoying in Sharp/Cacko. smile.gif

Please correct me if I misunderstand the issues here.

Thanks!

The default behaviour in pdaxrom is to turn off the screen.

The following should do what you want:

CODE
# echo -e '#!/bin/sh \n xset dpms force off' > /etc/sysconfig/clamshell/closed.d/suspend.sh
# chmod +x /etc/sysconfig/clamshell/closed.d/suspend.sh

Thanks. But it seems the screen always stays on even though it's closed/folded up, at least true of RC10-12 (which I've used).
Before trying your script and to play safe, can you tell me if the device will wake up when opening the screen? smile.gif

works for me with my 860 and rc12.

If you want to simulate closing the screen, you have to press simulteaneously the little button under the hinge, and the one above the 1 and 2 keys.

add a line like:
CODE
key "XF86RotateWindows" chkhinge


in /home/root/.icewm/keys

if you don't have the file "keys" there, you can copy /usr/share/icewm/keys
in /home/root/.icewm, and modify it as you like.

thanks a lot, pgas

it works fine.

it is also possible to define the actions for RH1 remote control and silkscreen-buttons as well.

I just installed beta1 on my C1000. I was previously running RC12. With beta1, my D-Link wireless card no longer works, whereas it worked fine with RC12 (both dhcp/no essid and static ip/specific essid worked with RC12, neither works with beta1).

When you boot beta1 and login as root and attempt to type

ping ww.xx.yy.zz

when you type the periods, they are not echoed.

If the D-Link card is in the slot, startx will hang (it becomes unwedged if you remove the D-Link card).

Is anyone else successfully using a D-LInk card with beta1?

is there a simple way to start kde... something like "startkde" (which doen't start x) and not like "startkde --replace" (which leaves a lot o stuff running in the backgrounfd from the previous wm --- in ice the panel and rox are both going, for example)

IS there anything new since the thread on kde 3.4?

I link startkde to .xinitrc and run startx.
It can be necesary to do a "ldconfig" before and also stablish the swapon as kde uses more ram.
Anyway, my feeling is that kde is a little bit "too much" for my 6000 althought for some uses it is o.k.

Changelog ?

Between rc12 and beta1 only minimum packages changed.

Is posible only:

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

I seem to have experience the same issue as the previous RC.
When plugged in to AC, after waking my Z (860 in this case) from auto suspend, the screen (or the device?) will go off very quickly if I don't tap the screen or press other keys. Once I was tapping the screen a few times quickly upon turning it on and the device freezes.
Any hint?

I just reverted my machine to RC12 and the D-Link card is working fine again. I note that you are running RC12, so I'm not surprised why you asked the question -- you and I have the same D-Link card. My advice is to stick with RC12; your wireless card will not work with beta1. Too bad, because beta1 definitely felt more responsive. Looking forward to beta2 ....

I've got the kapi that comes with kdepimpi 2.2.3 working with Beta1 (on my C760). You need to symlink all the libmicrokabc*.so files in /usr/lib/ to /opt/kdepimpi. Then it will work ok, but once you start it you need to press ALT+Tab to get the window to appear as it seems to start up minimised.

Hope this helps

Has anyone else noticed worse wifi performance with Beta1? I have a CF wifi card which under beta1 is identified as a Senao SL-2011CD. Under rc12 it showed up as a Farallon Skyline. Now using the hostap drivers the sensitivity is way way down. If I'm not next to the access point it barely detects it. Also power management no longer works. I've tried setting the sensitivity to maximum but it makes no difference.

Is there any way to revert to using the orinoco drivers? I'm using a C760.

Thanks for any help you can give me.

upgrading from rc12 i can now use my bluetooth gps.. all the previous versions bt wouldn't allow me to connect unless i was really really lucky.. (and i'm not a very lucky person).. so now i can use bt (hopefully! need to test a little more..)!! =]

con:
beta1 has a terrible problem with suspending and never coming back.. i notice this especially when i leave a CF wifi card in.. however, i just did a cardctl eject removed it and hit suspend and the screen turned darker but hung.. so i think theres some problems with the suspend script.... i had to hard reset about 10 times in the past 10 minutes.. =(

with the suspend thing... ive noticed this, (pdax1.10beta1 was the first rom i tried on my new cl3100 so not sure if its different in other versions) .. the key to this problem that i've found out is making sure not the press the on/off button multiple times to try to suspend, at first i would try to unsuspend it and it woudlent come up for liek few secs, and i woudl try it again the screen woudl blink then baclighting would die but u could still see stuff.... Now i suspend/unsuspend with one sold press for each holding down for 2-3 sec

migth not work for u, but, this seems to be what i kept doing wrong

I'm investigating the issue...trying to get WPA-PSK like with Cacko.

I've already found some "omissions" in the file /etc/pcmcia/wireless so that it comes out with an error.
I've googled for the full version and i found it.
Then I've patched like described on wpa_supplicant homepage.

..but sadly it doesn't work.

If I test with a Socket CF Low Power Wlan card the wpa_supplicant runs (but the card doesn't support wpa...)

If I stick the D-Link DCF-660W the wpa_supplicant is not called...why???

The next step will be to change the card description in the files:
/etc/pcmcia/hostap_cs.conf
/etc/pcmcia/config
/etc/pcmcia/hermes.conf

like they are in the Cacko ROM.

I'll let you know.

What works for me EVERYTIME: after the suspend doesnt work wait for about 5 seconds (if it doesnt work again: wait 10 or something) and then press the "home" button. this is everything and it should work everytime (on rc11 and rc12 it also worked).

for the next time you suspend: after the suspend do not press the on/off button again in the next few seconds. because while suspending the zaurus blackens the screen first and after some seconds REALLY suspends.

Sometimes my whole screen goes blank, and then if i hit a key (like shift) it comes up entirely white. Usually I can get it to come up properly by hitting ALT-Tab a few times.

Has anyone else seen this? I didn't have this with RC12, so I thought maybe it was a ROM problem.

If no one else sees it though, then I'll assume I mucked something up myself. smile.gif

I've had this before with earlier releases. Haven't seen it on RC12... which seems to be suspending on its own account. Changing to beta1 in a few minutes will let you know if it happens. Is it related to the screen saver?

I have beta1 installed on both my old C860 and the C3100 , I have the same suspend problem on the C3100. The C860 is ok. Dont know why, apart from the suspend problem it also seems that pdaXrom is more stable on C860 then on the C3100. I couldnt get Kismet to work on C3100 too even though i configure exactly the same
as the C860 and using the same Wifi CF card.

I must to say thank you for your great effort on working out this great Xrom.U r the best .
A problem confuse me form R10~Beta 1.My Z is SL-7500C.
My Z cannt be charged by AC/DC adapter,but the orange light is always lighte.
And the machine will use the power from the plugin power,instead of the battery.It means the AC/DC adapter work for the Z.

I wanna know what happen,If there any solution about this.
Or is it something about the hardware inside?
TheWalt
At one point there was talk about a pdaxrom 'lite' version where only the x-environment and config utilities would be included (basically everything but the default applications).

I understand the origional plan for pdaxrom was to compete with other roms and offer equivalent functionality, but the project has advanced so far beyond that I think many users would appreciate more of an operating system install package. I don't use any of the default apps, or now with KDE available even the window manager. Although these programs take little storage, having a 'clean' system is appealing.

Is this still being developed or has it been put to back burner?


Thanks in advance.

Ok, I tried & can't figure out where to place the swapon -a command in the init scripts on a 3100. Any suggestions? I've tried the pcmcia, and rc.sysinit.

Also, when I boot without a CF card or microdrive, the internal HD get set as hda instead of hdc. Is there anyway to modify the scripts so that they always are hdc, or that the CF is always hdc? That way my swap partition in fstab will be correct. (as a f/u, where the heck are the mount commands for the internal HD? I sure couldn't find them)

Thanks!

I placed mine in /etc/rc.d/init.d/pcmcia. So at the end of "start", I have:
CODE
cardctl insert 1
sleep 1
mount -t vfat -o noatime /dev/hda3 /mnt/ide3
mount -t ext3 -o noatime /dev/hda5 /mnt/hd
swapon -a

       mkdir -p /opt/native/arm/3.4.5-xscale-softvfp
   fi
   mount -o loop /home/root/zgcc-3.4.5.img /opt/native/arm/3.4.5-xscale-softvfp
fi


And at the beginning of "stop" I have:
CODE
mount -d /opt/native/arm/3.4.5-xscale-softvfp
umount /mnt/ide3
umount /mnt/hd
swapoff -a
sleep 2


Season to taste.

Take a look at this thread. If my understanding is correct then /etc/pcmcia/ide.opts (if it works properly) should mount the HDD/CF at the correct /mnt points regardless of whether it is /dev/hda or /dev/hdc, because it uses the pcmcia slot position which is always 0 for the CF, and 1 for the microdrive. But sadly as I note in that thread it doesn't work properly (not for me at least).

Ok, I tried & can't figure out where to place the swapon -a command in the init scripts on a 3100. Any suggestions? I've tried the pcmcia, and rc.sysinit.


I placed mine in /etc/rc.d/init.d/pcmcia. So at the end of "start", I have:
CODE
cardctl insert 1
sleep 1
mount -t vfat -o noatime /dev/hda3 /mnt/ide3
mount -t ext3 -o noatime /dev/hda5 /mnt/hd
swapon -a
ipkg-link mount /mnt/hd
if [ -f /home/root/zgcc-3.4.5.img ]; then
   if [ ! -d /opt/native/arm/3.4.5-xscale-softvfp ]; then
       mkdir -p /opt/native/arm/3.4.5-xscale-softvfp
   fi
   mount -o loop /home/root/zgcc-3.4.5.img /opt/native/arm/3.4.5-xscale-softvfp
fi


And at the beginning of "stop" I have:
CODE
mount -d /opt/native/arm/3.4.5-xscale-softvfp
umount /mnt/ide3
umount /mnt/hd
swapoff -a
sleep 2


Season to taste.

When you say "at the end of start" I'm assuming that you mean right before the
CODE
;;
that ends that section. At least that's where I tried to insert the
CODE
cardctl insert 1
sleep 1
mount -a #to mount my swap partition
swapon -a

That produces a
CODE
ioctl():Device or resource busy
swapon: /dev/ hdc1: No such device

buring boot right after Start CF services
grrr

is that a space between /dev/ and hdc1? that might be your problem, but honestly, you should use swapon /dev/hd${PART}1 instead of relying on /etc/fstab since it isn't dynamic enough, or use sed to 'fix' it on each boot.
