hi there...

i tried yesterday to install the new version r121... I put the u-boot on my zaurus 860 and install r121... all work great... but my wifi card (an asus) doesn't work sad.gif

when i put him in the slot, it is recognised by the mount tools, and the led on the card light on and off...

i create a new profile named "wireless" but i can't connect sad.gif

is there a solution?

and it's possible to install older version of pdaxrom (like the beta1 (because my wifi card work with this version)) with u-boot or i need to restore the original nan flash util??

thx all wink.gif

I know with r121 the Lan and Wifi program does not work correctly. Your better off running a script to get it working. Check out this thread

http://www.oesf.org/forums/index.php?showtopic=21852

it may help starting off. I know the pdaXrom website has sample scripts too. A further search will say something like a service for the latest kernel is not the same that the program reference too.

Hope that helps. biggrin.gif

hi... thx for answer wink.gif

but wich script do you speak about?

otherwise it's possible to install beta1 with u-boot... or beta4 work great with lan and wifi?

thx wink.gif
pyknite
no more ideas??? wink.gif

I know this doesn't really help you, but FWIW I'm in the same boat as you. I haven't been able to get my SMC card working in r121 (see details here). Since the last post I've made there & reflashed r121 & am working on other stuff. If somebody does have a solution I think we'd both love to hear it.

Here's a direct copy from pdaxrom.org:

I have made some scripts for loads and configure my Zaurus network gadgets.

eth0.up
CODE
#!/bin/bash
ifconfig eth0 192.168.0.5 up
route add default gw 192.168.0.1
echo "nameserver 192.168.0.1" > /etc/resolv.conf
ifconfig eth0


wlan0.up
CODE
#!/bin/sh
ifconfig wlan0 down
iwconfig wlan0 essid ESSIDNAME mode managed key XXXXXXXXXX channel NN power on


EDIT: You may need to add "dhcpcd wlan0" to the end of the script to get it to work.

Here's the script I wrote on the link I posted earlier

#!/bin/sh
echo "Resetting Wireless"
ifconfig wlan0 down
rm /var/run/dhcpcd-wlan0.pid
sleep 1
echo "Turning Up Network"
ifconfig wlan0 up
iwconfig wlan0 essid Core mode managed key ##########
dhcpcd wlan0
sleep 5
ifconfig wlan0

It's probably not the best. But it worked for me.
pyknite
ok, thx for answer... must i change the "###############" for the key?

thx wink.gif
harvell
Yup... and change the ssid as well. "Core" is the one I have set at home.
pyknite
ok thx, but i have no key on my router... i put none? or i just put that:iwconfig wlan0 essid Core mode managed
thx
pyknite

Yah, good to hear the somebody has it working. i'll try it again & report back in my own thread.
pyknite
hihi.... it s great to come back to pdaxrom wink.gif but there is some bug anymore sad.gif i cant have the right click for example... sad.gif

Holding down the Fn or shift key while clicking should work.
Give it a try.

yep i know that, i'm using pdaxrom for a while now... but it doesn't work sad.gif i try to change the keymap in the input setup but it doesn't work sad.gif
harvell
I just flashed back to cacko for a while. I could of sworn that r121 used shift instead of Fn for right click...
Capn_Fish
Here's the trick for fixing right/middle click:

WARNING: I believe that fixing shift for middle click screwed up my keymap. Use at your own risk!

-Open /usr/bin/inputconfig.py with your favorite editor

-Search for "fn" It should bring you to a line for setting up right/middle clicks. Relpace the number in that line (38?) with "69" (at least on a C3100), or whatever xev says your fn key is.

-Repeat once more for the ctrl/alt buttons (repeat search.

-Repeat for other keys. Note that if you are using the key you are changing, you have to edit it in ~/Choices/input.cfg so it matches the new key you put in inputconfig.py. Even once you've changed it in both files, you need to run inputconfig.py and restart X.


That should be all, but I probably forgot something. Let me know if there are.
pyknite
ok thx... but i think i wiil use cacko and wait for a new version... this is too bugged for me sad.gif

If I were you I'll try beta1 on 860. I's stable and fast wink.gif

Hi

and thanks, Capn_Fish!!!!

The mouse button fix worked for me. I asked about how to fix the mouse button problem in this forum several times but never got an answer.

"69" was correct for me (C860) and I only had to change it on two places.

I didn't change ~/Choices/input.cfg, it was correct.

After running inputconfig.py and restarting X it worked!

Thanks again!

Btw: I find, even with a C860 r121 ist the best. WPA works fine, large SD cards work fine, I have Gnumeric running and KApi/KOpi, Firefox, ...

I found no other ROM that does all that.

Cheers, Jan

Glad to have helped.

Well, I'd swear on the bible, koran & dead sea scrolls stacked all together that this never worked for me, but I decided to fiddle with it again & whataya know, I finally got my card working again under rc121. smile.gif Didn't do anything different, all I can say is that something else I've done in the mean time mysteriously fixed my problem.

I'm still working on a script to enable open AP surfing, so if somebody got something along the lines of SLAPass (wraps the output of kismet into a script to associate found networks) that'll work under rc121+, please don't be shy.

Thanks. Maybe by that time, there'll be an even newer release, though I haven't seen any more hints of one yet.
