reset & reboot tells me at the end of the process:
mount: special device /home/user does not exist

then at login:
warning: cannot change to home directory
rip
startx works and makes the bash window. exiting this bash window gives that:
loading /etc/sysconfig/keyboard/kernel.map
xaut: error in locking authority file /home/root/.Xauthority
removing empty element from the valid list of fontpath

using 6k thanks

@danboid : c3000 support will be added as soon as I will have finish with it (btw you can expect at least a second beta of pdaXrom for c3000 before any official support) ...

@everyone interrested in c3000 support : Sorry guys I have some personal problems so I'm not going to work a lot on this at the moment ...
rip
pga, i was assuming this install for 6k was just for rc...

This post will be updated ASAP with the changelog and new stuff added.

Just tested it in my SL-6000 and everything is fine.
In fact, I haven't found any difference with the previous, not being the nice messages at boot time.
The problem with "suspend" on CF (microdrive) continues. As I have my own "xmodmaprc" and copy itto /etc/X11/kb/ , nothing new with the keyboard.
All in all, it works very well, modifying some details.

the -no-owner worked fine, thanks. the same as smuelas, no big changes, except a quicker responsiveness i think. will test further, waiting for the changelog

Has anyone else had problems like rip's ? I've got the ROM on a CF card ready to go...

Update: I couldn't wait. I tried it on my C1000... Works great. Now all I need is a KDE install tutorial.

I've just install the whole KDE !!
This is incredible... everything (almost) is there...
It is posible to configure the desktop in the same way as with the laptop.
Now, really, our zauruses are real small, usable, wonderful handtops!!
Thanks a lot. !!

So may I ask how much space does KDE 3.5 take? Is it possible to install it to the main memory?
Also would it be ok if installed in SD as it's slower than CF?
Thanks!
gromituk
Thanks for the new release. I've put it on my 860.

Is the Tasks Applet new? It helps switch between active tasks, but only shows the tasks on the current desktop, and is only available on the first desktop, because the task bar still doesn't work on subesquent desktops (even though maximised windows leave a space for it).

The Package Manager has the default feed "cacko-unstable http://mirror1.pdaxrom.org/rc8/feed" which doesn't work.

I presume mounting the internal flash partitions with noatime is new. Why does mount report /dev/mtdblock/3 as being mounted at /home and /mnt/user? Is the advice in the "documentation" to partition at 50MB correct?
pgas

no

so that the gui package manager see /mnt/user as a partition.

Root partition size does not matter that much, just take care not to install everything in /.
gromituk
Thanks very much for that, pgas. I think I understand the Z's memory config for the first time. I too am interested in knowing the answer to the KDE question!
pgas
KDE (never tried myself):
I suppose you need to install kde-base at least

http://www.oesf.org/forums/index.php?showtopic=12702

post#10:
just "startx" - to start the default window manager
Then in an "aterm" : "startkde"

post#4:
for start on default (that will init kde right) from clean console:

ln -sf /usr/lib/kde/bin/startkde ~/.xinitrc
startx

maybe have a look at post #15 also

I failed to install KDE in a 128M SD card - not enough space!

Sorry for the delay in answering.
I have installed the packages for kdebase, kdepim and the libaries. So the whole KDE. I installed at the same time "octave" and "vim" and some other minors. I looked at space in SD before and after and it was around 250-300 Mb.
It runs very well althought some applications (konqueror, kate...), takes its time. In fact, konqueror no more than mozilla; around 45 sc. on the 6000 at 400 Mh. Once on the screen, it seems to me a little bit quicker.
My opinion is that it should be installed on SD. It takes a little while to install but afterwards everything is o.k.
Pgas, I don't recommend to launch the X's in the usual way and the run "startkde". I have tried as a variant but there is a mixture of windows from openbox or icewm and the K's.
I suggest for those using KDE and also Matchbox or Rox or any other to write a few short scripts to launch one or the other. Someting like:

rm .xinitrc
ln -s /usr/bin/mbsession .xinitrc
startx

and call it "mbstart". Then: "chmod +x mbstart" and "ln -s mbstart /usr/bin/mbstart" You see the idea....
The same for "kdestart" and any other wanted.
I used "ksnapshot" to obtain the simple jpg attached.

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?

Here worked fine, but this uses 180MB, more or less, blink.gif

But I have some questions too!

- How to control LCD backlight?
- mb-applets works in kde, but we can have k-applets?
- Where is power-manager in kde, I cant find in control panel? cool.gif
- How to use [Fn] key combs in kde 3.5?

Hey nice work again, there is a firefox 1.5 ipk too!
TheWalt
Is it safe to asume those with SL-C3100's are installing to the hard drive (KDE that is, not the basic rom)? I just ordered mine as a upgrade to my old 860 because I knew bigger apps were on the horizon.

Thanks in advance
puthreguy
It seems that http://mail.pdaxrom.org/1.1.0beta1/Zaurus-...860/feed.tar.gz
does not contain the kde packages. They need to be downloaded separately from the feed folder.

Sorry that it seems many people here (including me tongue.gif ) have great interest in KDE 3.5. So shall we start a new thread dedicated to this? wink.gif
danboid
Does this new pdaxrom release have-

xorg 7.0?

alsa sound drivers?

cups printing?

If not, thats my top 3 feature wishlist for pdaxrom (in no order).

Apps I'd most llike to see ported are audacity, zynaddsubfx, seq24 and specimen- combined you have a a full, portable, lightweight(ish) FOSS music workstation, as well as all that other cool stuff you can already do with it. I will port them myself if no-one beats me to it as soon as pdaxrom goes stable on the C3000.

I can't wait to test KDE 3.5 out. I would've thought it would've been agonisingly slow to do anything more than run a console under KDE in only 64MB of RAM though.Anyone tell me how well konqueror, kword and k3b run? He he! k3b on a Zaurus!! blink.gif

I hope things are OK with youTHC. I was greatly impressed with your xrom xmas beta, it was a great Chritmas present to see a full linux machine running in my palm like that! biggrin.gif

I need to know..

1. How much ram still available after installing kde?
2. Do i need to enable swap for kde?

I just wanted to use kdepim...

Overall, the 1.1.0beta1 looks good. Firefox startup faster when started for the second time.
All the other WM works fine.

Problem: WindowMaker brighness function doesn't work...

Need to more testing...

Thank you, looking forward to 1.1.0 release...

Come on guys, please donate !
A monthly contribution would be great.
We had the same discussion not so long ago, where are all these promises about donations ?
Aren't you amazed by all the work the team is doing ? by the power, stability, the many packages available of the X rom ?
ZDevil
Agree. I'm gonna to do it very soon. Their amazing team work isn't only worth a lot of verbal praises, but also real material support. smile.gif

it seems that the gcc header ipk has some error (in the c1000/c3100feed)
two files, stipple and Stipple, are seen as the same file and thus cannot achieved to the same location

On thursday, I got my C3100. On friday, the server went down. Luckily, another board member (adf) offered the akita rc12 zip. When the server was up again I downloaded the whole stuff - just to be sure - and the bandwidth probably dropped a little more because of that. Today I finally spent some time with it - and yes - all that effort that went into pdaXrom certainly is worth some money - as are all the efforts of the original package owners/holders. That is why I donated $20.
But I don't use the Z to make a living. It is "just" a gadget like so many before it. It will soon be replaced by something "better" ... probably a smart(voip)phone ...
