Full Version: Which Rom For A 3200?
OESF Forums > Distros, Development, and Model Specific Forums > Model Specific Forums > C1000/3x00 General discussions
zedkatuf2
Hi all

I've just ordered my 3200 at long last (have sold my collie to help fund!), and am trying to decide on which ROM to use.

If you have a c1000/3x00, could you post here what ROM you're using & why, plus some comments on the ROM's strengths & weaknesses?

In the ideal world, I'd love to be able to boot several different ROM's, and I've seen elsewhere on oesf that someone's working on this. In the meantime, I'm gonna have to make a decision which to go for. smile.gif

I'm using Cacko on my C1000. I chose it for:
- the full english translation (compared to most of the other SharpROMs)
- plug and play support for my wireless LAN CF card (Socket Spectrum24)
- small ROM footprint (it is only using 32MB of my 128MB flash - not important on a 3200)
- has the latest stable build of ScummVM (0.8.2) ported to it (OZ and pdaXrom only seem to have older versions ported)
- TextMaker, TreeExplorer + and the original Shanghai available for it
- well functioning suspend and resume (it has not failed me)


Here are some of the weaknesses I found:

- HancomWord is stuck at the way too small 100% zoom level and I can't seem to find out how to change it. SharpROM does not have this problem
- Kino2/Mplayer is not as fast on video playback compared to my old and slower Palm running the same files under TCPMP. My battle scenes are jerky in the Clone Wars Vol.1 tongue.gif
- Not enough volume options. I want alarms loud and everything else quiet. Is that too much to ask for? blink.gif
- If I loose my wireless connection I have to unplug and replug my CF card to be able to reconnect
- From what I have been told Cacko is way overdue for a service pack to fix some of these issues.

to zaurus i'm totally new this is my first one, for linux not so new i use gentoo in both laptops i have!

i flashed zaurus with pdaxrom beta4, really nice i like it but as a gentoo user i wont satisfied without optimization and testing. so I looked around for information about optimized stuff under openbsd, *imasmith* doing great job smile.gif but still looking forward to see complete guide for c3200.

I flash it again with cacko rom just to have a look, it’s pretty cool, but i think openbsd will be my last station

So what do you guys prefer when it comes to development stuff that runs smoothly on c3200?

Any tips and hints dedicated to c3200?

Hi hus - I'm oscillating between OpenZaurus and Cacko at the moment, or even possibly pdxarom smile.gif

My feeling about it at the moment, though, is that there is a "critical mass" happening for OpenZaurus, and the new 3.5.4.1 release which will be officially out by the end of the week looks very promising, so I think I'll probably go for OZ, albeit the hentges 'distro' gpe version, as it comes pre-rolled with abiword, gnumeric xine & much more besides. I'm just waiting to get my 3200 (also from Japan!), so hopefully this will coincide with CoreDump's production of a spitz image for the 3.5.4.1-hentges distro.

hello zedkatuf

well i'm in the same situation now, thanks for sharing this information, to be honest all i'm looking for is to get the beast out of this device to use it as network administration and penetration test tool, not into other stuff, basically optimized kernel for speed and good network support, that's why i start twisting this device since the first minute i put my hands on it smile.gif

i have installed OpenBSD, really really nice so far (the problem i'm new to BSD)

i'll flash the new OZ hentges to c3200 as soon as its out ( with hope to be my last station) smile.gif

Hi hus - if you wan to do network admin & penetration test stuff, I think OZ will be a very good choice.

OK, np, but not so fast - I don't think the official 3.5.4.1 mirror is up atm sad.gif - BUT CoreDump is preparing a release for the 3200 which should be ready in the next few days, if you can hang on.

The main plus IMO abt the hentges releases is that they come with more 'goodies' than the standard opie/gpe snapshots of OZ; usually things like wellenreiter, for wireless network sniffing, are included by default, for example.

Also, the 3.5.4.1 feed aint quite ready yet, but I *think* hrw might've said that it's ok to use the 3.5.4 feed in the meantime, and if you have wireless or usbnet access, you're 3200 will be automatically configured to grab stuff from the hentges feed.

To grab the spitz stuff from hentges, go here:

http://hentges.net/tmp/do_not_use/spitz/

It's not all there yet, but soon should be by the looks of things smile.gif

Once it's all there, it'll be in:
http://oz.hentges.net/releases/3.5.4.1/T1/
zedkatuf
hus
zedkatuf, thanks for enlightin' me about OZ

i have installed the RC ver (GPE) just to test from http://hentges.net/tmp/do_not_use/spitz/

it's orginized smooth and nice ( works ) clean ...etc
i like it but it's slow i felt like i'm using diffrent device compared to cacko and pdaxrom, i think because its run from the microHD, also its like a waste to not use the flash ram :/

so far OpenBSD feels right to me, going to test it for a week to make final decision besides working out the Wireless Card (the Planex GW-CF11X to work on OBSD)

i'll see how to have Both OZ and BSD on c3200, will be nice mix smile.gif

thanks again and wish you great time with your new zurii ( don't forget to share your experince with it ) wink.gif

Hi,

>- If I loose my wireless connection I have to unplug and replug my CF card to be able >to reconnect

in /etc/pcmcia/network.opts

Change CARDSUSPEND=y to CARDSUSPEND=n

This should sovle the problem for you. It did for me.

well, this will be a project if you intersted smile.gif

Good day first smile.gif, it's been a while now playing with all roms i have put my hands on (did u get ur new zaurus?)

so far here is my first impression

OZ hentges Spitz ver:
As I said before clean tidy all together good on c3200

Original Sharp:
Speak some Japanese or your girlfriend Japanese? Want to keep original stuff as it is? When you read flashing process guide you fell you want extra hand to bush a button or connect the AC?,,,,, Then stick to it and read zbook3k

Cacko 1.23:
You can say tweaked original version in English smile.gif if you after PDA functionality as sharps tend to sell

Pdaxrom beta4:
To be honest FAST!! good if you want optimized version and faster than other roms mentioned above, you will have a bundle (jumbo box) of all your needs of cross environment developing liveCD.

OpenBSD
This is it! I just cant describe my feeling,,,, man this is the one,,, if you wellin’ to mess things with big smile on your face this is it.
It needs extra time (compilation) but don’t forget how is the feeling after that when things works. The good thing here you build your own system and you optimize it the way you want, the choice is yours (it’s like taking one of Morpheus pills and zaurus the Nebuchadnezzar)

Anyway, the question now, what is the efficient way to partition the c3200 microHD for linux? I mean if you get pdaxrom on it what the good HD partition schem strategy?

Mounting partition under /home and another one under /usr?

It seems to me you can partition the HD up to 4 partitions only, means one swap and 2 linux or 1 linux and 1 FAT the 4th will be BSD, and wondering how going to mount the linux partitions with pdaxrom, under /home better or as described /mnt/ide

if i get my wireless card running under openBSD im thinking to have pdaxrom and openBSD together (because pdaxrom use the flash ram which i don't want to waste).
Meanie
standard disk partitioning rules apply. read any dos/windows/linux/unix manual and it will give you suggestions.

all disk can only have 4 primary partitions, which includes extended partitions. you can have as many partitions inside extended partitions as you like.
since the zaurus is essentially a linux system, linux partitioning recommendations apply. there are currently two camps, one that promotes one are two partitions only, and one that promotes many partitions for various things which may or may not apply to the zaurus.

typical partitions might want to consider would be:

/ (root)
/usr (for application binaries)
/home (for user specific data and config, stuff that needs frequent backing up)
/data (for storing large data files such as movies ad music and possibly for sharing via usb)
/tmp (for additional tmp space to open larger files)
/swap (or use a swapfile)
/boot (if you want to kexec or pivot boot)
hus
Hi Meanie

thank you for this information and thank you again and again for the great book (zbook)

i would love to keep it simple using only the primary partitions, the flash taking the / the rest 2 partitiions will be /usr and /home besides swap and OpenBSD partition. so enough space for applications and personal data:

/ Flash RAM (128MB)

/home Partition1 (1024MB) (T.83)
/usr Partition2 (1024MB) (T.83)
Swap Linux Swap (192MB) (T.82)
theRest OpenBSD (T.A6)

with this will makes me happy with 6gb on c3200

Hi hus - thanks for the excellent detail - very useful! I wonder if it's possible to dual boot pdxarom & OZ using the altboot....probably not, IIRC, as they use different kernels....ah well, maybe one day smile.gif

i guess so, i think there is no point to have pdaxrom and OZ in the same device, they almost identical and both have almost the same amount of feeds (both linux).

if you want to use the flash ram go for pdaxrom if you like OZ and don't care about the FLASH ram it's good too.

what's remarkable in my opinion to have pdaxrom (kernel 2.6) and OpenBSD, first you will use the flash ram with pdaxrom, 2nd you will use for example 1gb of HD for linux and the rest for OpenBSD.

and BTW, lately i found pdaxrom beta4 really stable enough to have in c3200 also good feeds for it, these two feeds more than enough check:

http://mail.pdaxrom.org/download/1.1.0beta...rus-Cxx00/feed/
http://mail.pdaxrom.org/contrib/Xromer/Beta4/

i have used firefox with no problems and really fast with it, in another hand OZ hentges looks orginized and clean but really slow and to start firefox u gotta have time to wait smile.gif

IMO to have pdaxrom+OpenBSD gonna be great to suck sl-c3200 resources smile.gif lets hope that OpenBSD dev team release a loader for 2.6 kernel.

yeah, I agree. rebooting is something I rarely do, and dual booting is something that was done in the 90s. ever since I discovered vmware (which I have used since v1.0) I have ditched dual booting.
afaik, BSD can run linux apps so ideally pdaXrom should run inside BSD smile.gif

well, chrooted BSD will not give me the power of already implemented (Hardware Access Layer) for some wirless cards or network cards, this is what makes BSD special for me (Open Source to the bone) the ability is endless here with the tools provided by BSD which linux start to loss it lately, (see madwifi driver branches for atheros WLAN cards where it goes now), also bsd is a unixes more than linux tongue.gif

The PLANEX GW-CF11X works fine under linux all you need is the firmware (found here in the forums) works under cacko 1.23, OZ, pdaXrom.

The problem it dosen't work under OpenBSD yet, i feel it's a minor issue similare cards works fine, OpenBSD print the card ID and only faild in initializing phase, (should load up the firmware) and this is what i'm working on [i got the card as a combo with zaurus from pricejapan] i want to get it work for some reasons:

1- New! i just got it from Tokyo (my first CF Wireless Card) wub.gif
2- The Box really cool (Japanese Anime touch) ph34r.gif

I've got an Ambicom card which worked fine under OZ 3.5.4.1rc-2

In pdaxrom, is it a matter of simply inserting the wlan card & if it's recognised, then you can configure it via a gui app??? Laslty, do cardctl ident & cardctl insert/eject etc work under pdaxrom?

i have followed this one

http://mail.pdaxrom.org/node/78 (new bootloader)

to Bootup emergency system check the note regards c3200 in the same page.

The cardctl is the old tool for pcmcia, as kernel 2.6 the now pccardctl is used and yes it's in pdaxrom works like charm smile.gif

i hdidn't tried the gui one, for my card i just put the firmware in /etc/pcmcia/firmware folder and edited the hostap_fw_load file to include the path, then in console

~:$ iwconfig wlan0 mode manage essid "the_name_of_AP" key f012345678
