If you open the terminal, unmount the card (umount /mnt/card), suspend then resume, is the card mounted or do you have to manually remount it?

If I manaully umount the card, waiting for it be suspended, then resume by pressing "home" key, the SD won't be automactally mount.

Then whatever process is used to mount the sd card isn't following the /etc/fstab settings & erroring out, which is the same situation with Cacko. that I had made my work-around for.

The only thing I can suggest at this point is to do a NAND backup (then you can a NAND restore later if it doesn't work out) & flash to the latest Cacko ROM. It's a lot better than Sharp & fully compatible too smile.gif. You'd get a lot more people that could help with problems as well. smile.gif smile.gif

OOPS! Of course I forgot that the download links are currently dead (oesf problem). Since you have an C860, and I don't seem to have a copy of the ROM files anywhere, then I'll offer you my own base install image HERE that you can install using the flash restore procedure. HTH

I have not been able to make all my prepherals work under my Z. So I have to try flash to other ROM later. Onr thing might be related:

Do we need add the SD card info to /etc/pcmcia/config ?

You're on the wrong track, I'm afraid. The cardctl utility & the pcmcia settings only apply to CF, not to SD. Different slot, different drivers, etc.

hello there
i have a sl c750 running cacko 1.23
added sdlink drivers got the 4gb sd to mount
mke2fs -b 1024 /dev/mmcda1
mount /dev/mmcda1 /mnt/card
SD card mounts ok

i used the custom sdiomgr & cudtom sdcontrol
Still the card will never mount automatically on insert
but mount with no trouble when manually mounted
somebody can help me?

just a thought, have you tried rebooting just in case the manager process has locked up? check the ownership of the mount points too

also check you've got nothing strange in your /etc/fstab?
qx773
Both sdiomgr and sdcontrol are shell scripts that might need to be made executable with:

su
chmod 755 /usr/sbin/sdiomgr
chmod 755 /etc/sdcontrol
exit


if they are not already executable. From a casual review of the sdcontrol script, it appears to write to a log file named, "/tmp/sd", if anything goes wrong with the mounting, so you can try typing:

cat /tmp/sd

to see if any error messages are there. If the, "/tmp/sd", file is non-existent, then you can create a blank file:

touch /tmp/sd

Then suspend and resume your Zaurus and see if there are any error messages in the, "/tmp/sd", file. There should at least be some text in the file.

The C-Guys drivers do not work for me with my current MMC card. I am guessing that my 1GB ATP +Plus MMC card is incompatible. Perhaps the card has to be an SD card instead of an MMC card to work with the C-Guys driver.

I have a Zaurus SL-C760. Would someone please post the original

/lib/modules.rom/2.4.18-rmk7-pxa3-embedix/kernel/drivers/block/sharp_mmcsd_m.o

in a zip file so that I can restore mine, which I accidentally deleted, until I can try out an SD card?

I would like to purchase the C-Guys sdlink11b card to compensate them for their work, but the card seems to be out of stock. Are they still in business?

Hello all,

I read each and every posting in the thread and (unless I missed something), it seems you all have a clamshell Z.

So, the key questions for me is:

Has anyone tried this driver on a stock SL-6000, with the Sharp ROM 1.12 and Linux Kernel 2.4.18? If yes, given the origin of the driver, would it mess up the built-in Wi-Fi configuration?

Thanks in advance.

@GoLinux: I think that you should ask it in the dedicated 6000 sub-forum, if you want to have a 6000 user answer.

Thank you, Cyril92, I have regained access to my MMC card with the module that you provided.

On a related note, I asked the people at SPECTEC if they had a driver for one of their SD 802.11b cards for the Zaurus SL-C760. They did not, but they have a driver for a closely related 2.4.18 kernel for a Samsung handheld computer.

There was some discussion recently about a 2GB+ SD driver that was a disassembled and hacked version of the original Sharp driver, modified by someone in Brazil to work on the Zaurus SL-5500 models. Perhaps that driver might work with the SL-6000. The web page is:

I post this in another message, but I'll add it here. biggrin.gif I don't recommend trying this sd module from the collie on a 6000. The 5000/5500 don't have a "standard" sd driver like the rest of the Z's. Search the forums. That's why OZ kernel's prior to 2.6 kernel were still using the original Sharp module or this one. And the rest of the Z's had a working SD driver in 2.6. I'm not a Z hardware expert, but I hate to see you lose access to your sd slot. biggrin.gif I would think you'd have a better shot trying to c-guys drivers before trying to use the collie module. Take care.

Hmm. Accessing the SD card hardware on the 5500's may be different, but from what I understand the patch is at the protocol level which would be hardware independent. Hence, it would be possible to port the patch to the drivers for the later models.

I took a brief stab at this once - I know asm-fu, but at the time not so much SD-fu or ARM-fu. I might try again using this as a starting point... can someone post a copy of the 5500's original sharp_mmcsd_m.o for comparison purposes?

(yes, I know my 3100 doesn't need it, it's for the friend who has my old 860 biggrin.gif )

Bring back to Ceasar what belongs to Caesar : you should thank speculatrix from zaurus.co.uk wink.gif
speculatrix
the problem with the SL-6000 is that is uses the Toshiba Companion chip to do video (with acceleration), SD and some I/O glue. Thus the SD driver on the 6000 is completely different from the other models. Moreover, Toshiba have never released full technical specs on that chip - and at various times people with contacts at Tosh have tried very hard to get *some* sort of programmers reference guide.

I think because SD standard *was* closed, that Tosh felt impelled to keep the specification secret, and now that the chip is obsolete don't care any more that they could release it.

If you do have some way to contact Toshiba to get a detailed specification then there are many many of us who'd be very grateful.

Oh, and thanks for that.


BTW, it is very important that all Zaurus owners take good care of any downloads they make, since it is quite common for important resources to be abandoned and sometimes they are lost forever.

Even if you don't think you'll want it, try and get the source packages too. Disk space these days is practically free (as are blank DVDs for archives!).

For example, I found an interesting volume control applet for original sharp written by a third party, I managed to get the binary, but the guy had lost the source code in a disk crash, hadn't backed up, and also sold his Zaurus so had no way to recreate his work nor any particular interest in doing so (he wasn't unfriendly/unhelpful, just too busy)!
GoLinux
Thanks to all those that replied with some information on the SL-6000. I did post also on one of the SL-6000 specific forums. In fact, I found by chance this other thread. I saw the very short reference to the SL-6000 in DrWowe first posting but then all the rest of the postings focused on the clamshell models. Being this one of the General Forums and seeing all the activity DrWowe post generated, I figured I'd give it a try here as well.

I work in the semiconductor industry and I have tried too to find information on the Toshiba chip, so far unsuccessfully... Beside the SD limit, getting some info on the video section of it would help too with attempting a better acceleration.

I shall continue my quest..... mad.gif

The fix is really trivial - I think I can patch the 6000/c7xx modules no problem. (Yes, I have looked at the 6000 module internals. No, it is not dramatically different to the others.)

But it's a task for the weekend, I'm afraid - it's already 2:45am and I'm going to be regretting that tomorrow at work...

it would be great if you could do that! Unfortunately I do not have the necessary experience and knowledge to help, but I'm willing to try whatever you can come up to on my stock SL-6000.

You mean you can modify the binary module to support 2 GB SD-Cards? That'd be great, I'll test the one for the C760.

EDIT: Oh, and I've found the driver page, it moved to http://www.zentek.co.jp/sd/support/download/link_e.html since the old company apparently was bought by Zentek.
pelrun
Ok, I've attached a test module for the 6000. No guarantees this thing will even insmod properly, let alone work. It's not like I actually have a 6000 to test it on... biggrin.gif

Remember, it's only for older-style 2G and 4G cards. SDHC cards will not work. Also, remember to rmmod the original sharp module before you try this out.

EDIT: I realised this morning there's a bug in this, it won't work (it'll probably identify 2G/4G cards as just 1G.) Will fix tonight.

And here's the 760/860 version.

EDIT: The same bug from the 6000 version is in this one too - hold off from using it until I get a new version out.

Pelrun,

I'll settle for the old SD!!!!! If you really make this work on the SL-6000 with the stock ROM and kernel, you are going to become a celebrity among Tosa owners...... biggrin.gif

GO pelrun! And sincere thanks for attempting this. No matter the outcome, I really appreciate it.

Well, I fixed the silly bug from the previous modules (I got a bit too clever for my own good and omitted a bit of code which was vital... oops!) and created another couple, hopefully less buggy this time.

Still no warranty express or implied yada yada.

I just received my 2GB Sandisk Ultra II SD card today. Amazon.com had the best price compared to eBay at the time that I made my order. This little SD card flips open to provide its own USB port connector. Preliminary testing seems to indicate that the card works with the modified driver. I have replaced the link to the original Sharp driver with the new driver renamed as the Sharp driver. Here is the result of running:

time nice -9 cp /mnt/card/rfc.cramfs /dev/null

real 0m39.138s
user 0m1.760s
sys 0m19.860s

rfc.cramfs is a compressed file of Internet RFC files. The size of the rfc.cramfs file is 63,242,240 bytes, making the transfer rate approximately 3MB per second in system time, 1.6MB per second in real time.
qx773
I just did another test on my Zaurus SL-C760.

time nice -9 cp /mnt/card/rfc.cramfs /mnt/cf

real 1m6.517s
user 0m3.030s
sys 0m31.410s

My compact flash card is a 4GB Sandisk regular CF card. That's a real-time data transfer rate of about 928KB/s.

The md5sum of the original file and the destination file matches, so they are probably identical.

Thanks for the modified driver. Nice work.
pelrun
1) does df show the true size of the card?
2) can you still read/write files successfully when there's more than 1G on the card?

If the answer is 'yes' to both of those, then I guess we have a winner. biggrin.gif
qx773
Yes to both so far. I was listening to MP3 music just now from my 2GB SD card.

df reports about 1.98GB total on the card, 380MB used, 1.6GB available:

/dev/mmcda1 1983360 379680 1603680 19% /usr/mnt.rom/card
pelrun
Sorry - I mean accessing data stored after the 1GB mark on the card; with only 380MB used on your card you're testing the area we already know the sharp driver can access.

Thanks for the testing help!
qx773
I copied a couple of big files, a 419MB ATI SDK and a 398MB Beyond the Red Line BattleStar Galactica free game demo, onto the Sandisk Ultra II SD card. One thing that I accidentally learned by doing this is that Windows XP ignores the SD card's write protect tab. That pushed the SD card contents over 1GB in size. On the Zaurus SL-C760, I copied the files from the SD card to the CF card and am currently starting to compute their MD5SUMs. That will take a while. I would be more concerned about SD cards which are larger than 2GB in size in case the Sharp code uses signed 32 bit integer representations which would cause integer representations that are larger than 2,147,483,647 (2^31 - 1) to be interpreted as negative numbers.

I know that the Sharp voice recorder will falsely think that a mostly empty 4GB CF card is out of disk space, probably due to the use of signed 32 bit integer representations for checking the available space.

What technique did you use to disassemble and reassemble the object file? I might have to do that with the Sharp voice recorder to disable its disk space check.

The MD5SUMs of the corresponding files are identical. The computation finished as I was finishing this message.

With regards to the device driver I think this is probably quite unlikely (but testing is welcome!), your next point notwithstanding:

objdump (part of GNU binutils) provided the disassembly; I used the version which came with the pdaXrom cross compiler. The assembly I did by hand, applying the changes with a hex editor.

I spent several hours exploring other options for larger edits, but it was not needed here.

I suspect that's more likely to be the card reader not being able to detect the thing on the card, I suspect it does nothing on the card and relies on a sensor in the card reader.

The Oak,

thanks for trying it on the SL-6000, I believe you are the first of the Tosa owners. I'm leaving on a biz trip tomorrow so I'm not sure I'll have time to try it myself with my 2Gb PNY card before I leave. AAAAARGH, the wait is killing me.....

The Sandisk Ultra II SD card interfaces directly to the computer with its built-in USB connector without the need for a card reader, which is very convenient if you are not at home and need to transfer information between the SD card and a desktop computer which has a USB port. Windows XP seems to ignore the write protect tab on the Sandisk Ultra II SD card and will happily write data to the card.

Now have 89% full and movies play on 2 GB SD card (formatted ext2) like a dream. Copying files was a little problematic using the gui (TreeExplorer and sharp's file viewer, (NOT file manager)), but flawless using a simple cp command in qkonsole.

In all fairness the problems with the gui file managers were probably user impatience.

I feel that movies playing are a good test of real time use of the new driver. So far, I see no flaws with this driver. Thanks again pelrun. You have given the venerable 6000 a much needed usability boost after a long stale spell.

We 6000 users can't thank you enough!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Trip or no trip I couldn't resist, I tried the driver on my stock SL-6000 and it works perfectly with a 2Gb PNY card. Just in case I also put a copy of the original driver on the CF before renaming it with "old" and then rename pelrun patched driver with the name as the original Sharp driver. Rebooted and ... voila', 2Gb card mounts and works without a hitch. System Info from within Qtopia sees it with the right size and everything. I copied the content of my 1Gb Sandisk SD to my laptop with a USB card reader, copied from laptop to 2 Gb PNY, inserted 2Gb in Zaurus... DONE!

The PNY SD doens't hit me as blazing fast, but it doesn't feel slower than the Sandisk, even when playing a couple of large movie clips with Zplayer. I don't have time for now to do comparative transfer data rate tests, but I will.

Amazing a fix came only after three plus years the SL-6000 has been out. I guess the fact that >1Gb SD price has become ridiculously low only recently played a role.....

No matter, pelrun: YOU DA MAN!!!!

I'm way late in trying this out. But I glanced through this thread and am I right in thinking that there is no 2gb+ driver for my c3100? Too bad sad.gif
