I've been enthralled with the Zaurus ever since I saw a video of it online. And since I did nothing but talk about it for months, my family decided to get it for me for my birthday (either to make me happy, or shut me up).
I realize that I have no linux background, and basic programming skills but I really wanted the zaurus to be my springboard for learning as much as it was fun.
I decided to give pdaXrom a try. I flashed it with no problem using an SD disk i had laying around. Then I got stuck.
My family also bought the Planex wi-fi card for me, and this doesn't seem to be working. When I put it in the zaurus when I had the sharp rom it seemed to recognize it as it started blinking. The pdaXrom will not have my card blink (though it will recognize that it's there).
I tried to fix it as someone on this forum had recommended, but I have no idea how to go about doing that.
I also started 3 instances of clock on my pdaXrom and now i can't close them out of the toolbar.
The zoom feature seems to be disabled in pdaXrom as does the ability to use the zaurus as a USB drive.
The windows opened appear to be to big to fit in the zaurus screen and there's no way to resize them.
So, either I am asking advice on what i'm having problems with, or maybe someone could suggest a different rom. I would also like to be pointed in the direction of a basic user manual for linux (moving around files). I am good at DOS, but the terminal seems unforgiving.
I eventually, want to be wireless & load up scummvm as well as several PIM/Office programs. Thanks! I admire you all.
