Hi All,

After reading other posts, I got my Pocketop keyboard working with OZ after killing the irattach process. I was wondering then what the IRDA Applet is supposed to do when you click "Disable IRDA", as it didn't kill irattach, and if irattach isn't killed then the pocketop won't work.

Since I likely won't ever use IR for beaming, what's the best way to disable irattach from running on the Zaurus altogether, but still have the ability to turn it on if one wants to?

Thanks!
steven

Rename the binary?

Then you can explicitly call it yourself as and when you need to.

Hi Lardman,

I'm not sure what renaming the binary is going to do, and still don't know what the irda applet is supposed to do when you use it to enable/disable (is it supposed to kill the irattach process?).

I think I might just go mess with the rc#.d and remove the script from there on startup.

Thanks!
steven
