Ok I got my new AmbiCom WL1100C-CF Wireless card and it works fine except something I would like you guys comment on it “ This Card gets over heated!“ in a way that’s really can’t hold it, I used to wireless cards heat, but not like this I feel it’s malfunction or something, would like to hear from you guys.

Anyway here the way to get Andy Full HD install for SL-C3200, basically following Andy installation guide as it is Andy Whole HD Guide

I replaced the kernel with tetsu kernel Tetsu 18h SL-C3200 Kernel also i replaced the updater.sh with this one
Click to view attachment

So the files now looks like this
CODE
fdisk
initrd.bin
zImage.bin  <==--- Replaced by Tetsu Kernel
updater.sh   <==--- Replaced by Updater.sh above


Following the guide as it is and after installing OpenBSD and before booting it there is another modification, i used the same method to log to emergency screen using B+D and insert the CF card and preform the following:
CODE
mkdir /mnt/mtdflash
mount /dev/mtdblock2 /mnt/mtdflash
cp /mnt/mtdflash/etc/pcmcia/config /mnt/cf


in your regular Linux/BSD computer (Or Windows with UltraEdit Text Editor) open the file that we just copy it, and replace all ide-cs pattern to be ide_cs.

replace the old file with the one you edit it (cp /mnt/cf/config /mnt/mtdflash/etc/pcmcia/config) now boot the new FULL HD OpenBSD

i hope this will help someone.

and yeah Andy could you plz release full HD image for SL-C3200? you start this guide it will be great to take it to another level, and thank you for all the information you share it with us.

Thanks for writing this up!

Thanks for reply, well that's mean no malfunction with the card then
mathemajikian
What ROM are you running to boot? pdaxrom, cacko, OZ? Or is this installed during the full disk installation? I dont want to waste any room on the hard drive to a linux installation.

Hi mathemajikian

this is full HD install means all the hard drive OpenBSD.

The linux used here only the kernel and the small initrd (both in flash) just to boot the OpenBSD, you have to read Andy Installation Guide, what's in this post is to make it work with SL-C3200

Ugg!!! I have had my zaurus for one night have have already crashed the crappy qtopia OS! It would just keep rebooting itself and never get past the boot upscreen. Stuck at runlevel 5. So then I went into the system restore menu and selected clear hdd. Now I get a HDD 1 error and it will not boot at all. So now that my assumptions that linux is crap I am ready to put on old faithful. BSD! So should I just be able to copy the files in this post and follow the guide written by andy or is the hdd error going to give me headaches? If so what do I need to do to correct the HDD error so I can install openbsd?

Thanks!

if you want to go for OpenBSD you don't need to restore the HD just follow the guide. if you want to use Sharp Rom or Cacko you need to restore the HDD just search the forum.

OZ, pdaXrom and OpenBSD no need to restore the HD.
mathemajikian
Thanks hus! I can't beleave the Qtopia rom crashed like that. I just tried to install mplayer from the killz.de site and the next thing I know it rebooted itself automagically and would just sit there and hang on runlevel 5.

anytime,

well crashes happen all the time smile.gif for example you will find the suspend within OpenBSD somehow not stable on C32000, since yestrday i had crashes when it resume (i'm using the latest snapshots)

i'm trying to test that without the HD softdep,noatime stuff to see, oh yeah i also tunned many things to get some speed plus the set to 520MHz maybe they are responsible of the crash :/

hope you will enjoy your new Zaurii cool.gif

well I tried to install obsd but I can not seem to make it boot. I get to the point where it is asking

disk:
then >boot but it cannot find /bsd
not sure what the deal is? I did full install on wd0a but it seems to be looking for hd0a? Any ideas?

did you start emergency boot ( the D + B) and edited the pcmcia config file?
like the following:

CODE
1 - Log to emergency boot (D+B)
2 - mkdir /mnt/flash
3 - mount /dev/mtdblock2 /mnt/flash
3 - cp /mnt/flash/etc/pcmcia/config /mnt/cf      # copy to cf/sd card the /mnt/flash/etc/pcmcia/config to edit it
4 - open the file by any editor and change all "ide-cs" to be "ide_cs"
5 - copy back the file to zaurus
cp /mnt/cf/config /mnt/flash/etc/pcmcia/config


The reson to copy that file to edit it externaly because vi will crash if u tryed to edit it within zaurus.

enjoy OBSD
mathemajikian
I mounted the location liked you stated but I could not find /mnt/flash/etc/pcmcia to copy the config. There was a pcmcia config but it was not in the directory stated. It was already edited in the form you mentioned when I did a 'more' on it. Atleast it looked like it had been edited already. Is that the reason why it would not boot? If so I will try again. I restored the hdd1 hdd2 and hdd3 and installed cacko. Works like a champ, but I want to try bsd sense thats what I am used to. The cool thing about cacko is that it has opera preinstalled!I also tried out pdaXrom but suspend would not work correctly.I would suspend the zaurus but it would not wake back up? Have you corrected the suspend problems you are having?

i just check it, mount the /dev/mtdblock2 and you will find /etc/pcmcia/config

yes no boot because the IDE module didn't load up which result the internal HD not exist.

i like cacko too, regard pdaxrom suspend it's ok with me i have no problem with it.

Still not looking at it, so busy lately, but there is a good news the version 4 showd up on the snapshots, we will see good things next days. (i hope)
mathemajikian
cacko mounts /dev/mtdblock2 to / according to fstab. I cd /etc/pcmcia and did a 'more config'. I looked over everything that had ide mentioned and everything was already edited? There was nothing in the form ide-cs.

wait!! you are using cacko? not the full HD install (tiny-rom) and files provided by Andy (iamasmith) in his guide?

if you want to use cacko and OpenBSD better to follow the official install guide here zaurus.INSTALL

basiclly install the ipk provided to install OpenBSD.

What i have mentioned it in this topic is the installation for FULL HD using small cutom rom been submeted by Andy here http://www.oesf.org/forums/index.php?showtopic=17213
using the file he provides and simple edit i have explain it in this post.

try to go back to iamasmith (Andy) guide and see what you have missed.
mathemajikian
yes, I'm using cacko now since the full HD install of obsd failed using the initrd file provided by andy and the two files provided in your post. I want to perform full HD install but after I installed obsd via obsd and rebooted the boot loader could not find /bsd or /obsd and just dropped to shell. I'm going to try again. The only difference is that the hdd1,hdd2,hdd3 partitions are not corrupt but I dont think this is the issue since they are deleted during the install.

Got it installed!! Thanks for all the help! Works like a champ. I think I messed up the first time by selecting a mount point for partition a and not changing the config files correctly. I dont know. I'm off to build fluxbox! THANKS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Before i forgot! here is some tunning tips and starting xdm at startup, i'll drop them here and if you wonder what they do try to search the forum and google ( the guys who posted them they provide a lot of explanation specially Andy posts here regard fine tunning OpenBSD

***** NOTE: it's just to give an idea it may not reflect to what do u have in your config files, i just collect it from this forum and internet to boot to gui and gain little speed ******

CODE
vi /etc/sysctl.conf

vm.swapencrypt.enable=0
kern.stackgap_random=0

machdep.kbdreset=1
machdep.apmwarn=5
machdep.maxspeed=520

net.inet.tcp.recvspace=65536
net.inet.tcp.sendspace=65536


starting apmd, xdm and hotplugd
CODE
vi /etc/rc.conf

apmd_flags=""
hotplugd_flags=""
xdm_flags=""


adding softdep & noatime **depend on ur configuration not exactly the same**

CODE
vi /etc/fstab

/dev/wd0a / ffs rw,softdep,noatime 1 1
/dev/wd0b none swap sw 0 0


Turnning off ttyC0 and 1 to use xdm

CODE
vi /etc/ttys

ttyC0 "/usr/libexec/getty Pc" vt220 off secure
ttyC1 "/usr/libexec/getty Pc" vt220 off secure


finally the malloc thing in the console
CODE
ln -s 'azjgpHR' /etc/malloc.conf


AS I SAID B4 to have an idea you may search for more info
i'm not sure if that will give problems, but for me it looks ok (i only have a suspend problem) and it boots to xdm
