How do you set your timezone in cacko?? I tried to change it but the app freaks out and dumps back to the main screen.
Cresho
congrats on your new z BarryW. Sorry I don't use cacko.

Yea, that's what the second sentence says, it don't work... rolleyes.gif
Cresho
what version of cacko are you using? the lite one gaved me tons of problems. reg cacko was fine.
BarryW
Figures. I'm using the light one.
BarryW
Cacko full does the same thing.
BarryW
Well crap, now my wifi card doesn't work! What would be different between full and lite that would make it stop working? It's an AmbiCom WL1100C.
BarryW
Back to cacko lite. At least the wifi card works. Now to figure out the timezone thing.
Cresho
why not use the sharprom? i can give you a list of stuff you can do to make it run good. cacko is fine but i frankly like the native stuff. meanie is giving us the oportunity of running pdaxrom ontop of cacko and sharprom. great huh!
BarryW
I didn't like the kanji showing up on stuff. I really don't like the sharp pim apps either.

you can use the trisoft backup to convert it to english.
just install whichever pim app you like and remove the sharp one if you don't like them.

I see /usr/share.rom/zoneinfo/localtime, but that symlinks to a non-existent /etc/localtime. I'm not sure what's up with your setup, Barry, but I have not had any problems with timezones.
Cresho
well let me know if you want to try. i have no kanji showing up at all.

Thats strange about the Cacko lite not working with Timezones.

I tried Cacko lite and it works fine setting Timezones. I had to switch to full version since USB support etc were not nuilt in in Cacko lite (USB modules had to be installed seperately).

So once you set the Timezone to whatever - what happens on yoursetup ? It goes back to main screen, but what is the date/time set after that ?
Cresho
he may need to download directly to his drive or redownload from another location. Could be corrupted.
bluedevils
that brings up a good question. What does the date commandline return timzone wise?
BarryW
I just flashed the trisoft rom back on. What it was doing was I would hit the globe to change a timezine, hit Pairs, then choose United States then Anchorage. When I hit anchorage it would go back to the timezones screen, without Anchorage selected, I could keep doing this all day. So I'd quit out of the program, then say about 30 seconds later the world map would pop back up! If I touched the screen it would go away. All without changeing the timezone.
nilch
Ohhh nooo.. here you led us on a wild goose chase...

Just kidding - I guess we learn by those silly mistakes. on my first Zaurus experience even I had done the same thing. Its not realy very intuitive to have the globe map by the side of Timezone selection drop-down.

The Globe Map doesnt have any OK button - so that means you can't set timezone thru the globemap.
BarryW
I just don't understand why it didn't work. That's how I've been doing it with the sharp rom on my 6000 and with the trisoft rom on the 3100. Oh well. Now I get to set up everything, again. I think in the past 3 days I've reflashed it 20 times.
bluedevils
I was able to reproduce this problem with anchorage, but not any other random few cities I tried. This might be only with anchorage. I even tried St. John's Newfoundland (one of those 30 minute off timezone's).

Never understood the 30 min off timezones... Hey quick question, what do I need to install to be able to ssh in from another computer? Right now I get a ssh: connect to host 192.168.2.60 port 22: Connection refused.
bluedevils
It's been a while since I've manually had to put one on a zaurus, but usually openssl and openssh go hand in hand.
bluedevils
check your inetd.conf. Usually people use inetd instead of running sshd as a daemon.
BarryW
Not trying to be an ass or anything. I reflashed back to Cacko full. rolleyes.gif Then I copied the /zoneinfo/US/Alaska from my mac to the /usr/share/zoneinfo/US/ folder on my Z. All works now. The info on the rom is not right.


Thanks for all the help guys, you got me looking in the right direction. Now I need to figure out how to cross compile the pl2303 drivers for my microsoft gps.
