My initial thoughts/observations:
-dhclient is broken (same problem others have expressed)
-Orinoco/hermes is modprobed by default (I think there's something that can be done with making a list of card IDs or something similar)
-There appear to be some extra Python packages installed, probably left over from WICD's removal

Does anybody know how to rebuild the X server (I gather it's in the Xorg sources, but I suspect there's more to it than just "--enable-kdrive")?

I'd like to rebuild it with the XKEYBOARD extension.

Thanks.

One other thing which has been mentioned here: tskeys consumes 89% and up to 92% of CPU according to "top"
When first booting, I launch the console (which takes awhile) and use "top" to kill it. Once its killed response is greatly improved.

tskeys is responsible for the "selected device is not a touchscreen i understand". It tries to use the device used for the offscreen keys (home, mail, contacts etc) which is configured for Akita on default (sorry, my fault). Try to delete the files /etc/zaurusd/mach-config-funcs and /etc/zaurusd/mach-config-vars and reboot. With a bit of luck the message is gone wink.gif

I deleted both files and I still get the error message upon reboot. It doesn't seem to effect performance, I still need to kill tskeys to get "snappy" performance in the window manager.
I looked in /etc/zaurusd/ and these two files have been re-created.

Now CF slot is working. ^^ But my wireless lan(I heard that it uses prism chip) doesn't work yet.

Here is the result of typing "pccardctl info"

I just commented out the whole block, IIRC.

I managed to get Kdrive built, no idea if it has XKB support or not. I'll get to testing it eventually.

The dhclient issue seems to be kernel-related, since when I boot with the 2.6.24-Yonggun kernel it works fine (still get the unknown hardware message, but it works).

OK, thanks, I'll do a completely fresh install with all the latest files and make sure my card is Ext2 at the same time. Will report back later this evening...


Cortez. I've done a fresh install using the spitz tar file in your link an the other files from your blog - I trust that will give me the latest kernel. I've also made sure my SD card is formatted ext2 this time. I still cannot see any CF devices and hence cant even manually configure a network interface. My symptoms are:
no /dev/hdx devices listed at all
no output from pccardctl ident

Here is my dmesg | tail output:

Has anyone mapped the menu key on the clamshell zaurus to zubuntu's menu yet? If so how?
I have tried xbindkeys-config, but it wants a two key combination when making new shortcuts.
Capn_Fish
Using Fluxbox makes it easy. I don't know if there's a way to switch Openbox out for it (I didn't see anything obvious, ln -s should work tongue.gif), but you could disable the Fluxbox panel and it should act the same (and eliminate the need for xbindkeys).

Hi Cortez,
This looks like a promising release but I haven't had any luck with my SL-C860. I went through changing the event2 to event1 for the touchscreen but when startx runs, it opens a window in "portrait" mode but upside-down. I have the zaurus open for the keyboard.

Mouse clicks are far off the mark.

At bootup I get

/usr/sbin/alsactl: load_state:1313: Cannot open /var/lib/alsa/asound.state for reading: No such file or directory
Can't open display :0
/usr/sbin/alsactl: save_state:1251: No soundcards found...

I hope to get it running to see how it does but have only command line for now.
zmike
Some progress - I edited .xinitrc and it helped but the mouse is way off. Is there a way to calibrate it?
Thanks!
mike

I do get an error "Extended Input Devices not yet supported. when I abort startx

ts_calibrate does the trick. Now I have to figure out how to configure networking with a symbol technologies card I guess.

the socket/symbol wifi card is soft-mac, so you have to have a firmware uploader for it - spectrum24 chipset IIRC. I think it was posted to this forum a while back, let me know if you don't find it as I can probably dig out a copy (I had one once, but traded up to a prism2-based zonet/mercury zcf1100).

My Socket Low Power Wifi CF works.

Initially, it complaints for fw. I goes to /lib/firmware and find nothing there. As I have Debian installed also, I copy all files from there to Zubuntu's and the interface comes up at eth0. Of course, I have to configure the /etc/network/interface manually beforehand. Now my ugly Pretec (works with both Debian & Zubuntu) can now goes to Akita tongue.gif

I also replaced the internal 16G CF (which replaced the original MD long long time ago) to a Socket bluetooth CF (works when dual-booting to Debian, yet to figure out how to set up a ppp connection with my HTC Touch Pro). If everything goes right, I will have a dual wireless Z laugh.gif
zmike
Thanks for the reply. I hope I don't have to update the firmware. It works with Cacko and Angstrom - not sure what is different. I searched and didn't see anything for the firmware so if you have it I could try it. Not sure how I would upgrade it since I have mainly Apples or Linux desktop-wise.

I wasn't getting any response to the card at first but after searching, I ran:

modprobe pxa2xx_cs

Looks like something to do with firmware because I get the message:

spectrum_cs: Cannot find firmwared: symbol_sp24t_prim_fw
spectrum_cs: Firmware download failed
hermes @ c4880000: Timeout waiting for card to reset (reg=0x0000)!
eth0: failed to initialize firmware (err = -110)

I don't mean you have to update firmware in your card. I mean you don't have the firmware (driver) in Zubuntu's /lib/firmware. (In fact the rootfs of Zubuntu release doesn't contain the firmware)

I've sent you the files which are from Andromeda Debian in case you don't have. It work for me.
zmike
Thanks! Got the file and put it onto the SD card. The symbol is now blinking so that probably does it!
Now to wrestle with iwconfig.

Thanks again!

Hi. Can you elaborate on what you did to get beyond the rotated screen. I am stuck there.

Thanks

Sure thng..
In .xinitrc remove the line that has xrandr in it.
To calibrate your mouse -
In terminal before you do a startx run ts_calibrate as root.
Then when you do a startx everything should be ok.

Good luck!

OK, thanks.

Screen now looks good but ts_calibrate returns an error:

Any ideas?

Also, will there be sound (seeing errors about alsa)?

yes, but instead of ipkg and other things specific to sharp and angstrom, it's the regular debian package repository arrangement, so type "apt-cache search fred" to search for a package with "fred" in the name, and "apt-get install fred" when you'd found one. "dpkg -l" will list installed packages.

note if you're behind a proxy, do "setenv http_proxy http://myproxy:myport" and then you can use the apt- commands no problem.

Thanks. That's an incentive to get my wifi sorted.

CL860 suspend issues:

issue 1: suspend happens after no user interaction EVEN if the power suppy IS plugged in.
Is there any way to set the machine to suspend if the unit is battery only powered ?

issue 2: using the metal power button on the side of the unit to resume from suspend wakes the Z for half a second and then resuspends repeatable ad infinitum.
Using the keyboard "home" power button is the only way to wake the zaurus completely.

Otherwise great work! I will be donating as soon as I get some money !

to disable just use

I have a Zaurus C=860.

I put on the first partition of the SD card (which has the first partition as ext2 - I did sudo mke2fs /dev/mmcblk0p1 after creating this partition - and the second partition as linux-swap) the files extracted (i..e. untarred & unzipped using my laptop's Ubuntu Extractor) from the zubuntu-desktop root file system. I then copied the extracted files from the appropriate root-addition archive to the extracted zubuntu-desktop directories on my laptop (i.e. the 3 files from the root-addition /boot directory to the zubuntu-desktop /boot directory and the 2.6.26 directory & its files from the root-addition /lib/modules directory to the zubuntu-desktop /lib/modules directory). I copied the resultant file structure to the SD card's first partition.

I flashed the multiboot kernel OK - using a CF card as I presumed that I wouldn't need to do it again. I got the Omegamoon screen showing the Zubuntu 1.0 distro (as per the instructions). I selected Zubuntu 1.0. The SD card was recognised there was a message 'VFS: Mounted root (ext2 filesystem) readonly' and a message stating 'Freeing init memory 84K). Then there was a message 'Warning: unable to open an initial console' and the Zaurus froze.

Help please!

By the way, people reporting that detection of the NAND partitions takes extremely long during booting, try erasing or re-flashing the NAND, this solves this problem.


Thanks Cortez for all that you have done with zubuntu. It is working well for me.

I tried re-flashing NAND (with the kexec kernel) and still get a long partition detection time. There are several parts to the NAND. Which would I erase if I wanted to shorten the NAND detection time?

I had the same problem with slow probing flash and solved it by installing mtd-utils_1.1.0+git-r1_arm.deb (from "Running Zubuntu from internal flash" blog post) and using command flash_eraseall /dev/mtd2 and /dev/mtd3 (default root and home partitions for Sharp ROM). I don't know if you use those partitions for anything, so take care smile.gif.

remove /etc/udev/rules.d/70-persistent-net.rules

in /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist
you should have
blacklist orinoco
blacklist orinoco_cs
blacklist hermes


then reboot, if iwconfig outputs an eth0 interface instead of a wlan0 interface
delete those modules: in /lib/modules/2.6.26-omegamoon.../kernel/drivers/net/wireless/orinoco* and then hermes*
and reboot
then iwconfig should return wlan0, if nothing is returned, do a modprobe hostap_cs if module is not present in lsmod
then just add to /etc/network/interfaces

allow-hotplug wlan0

#use this config if WEP
iface wlan0 inet dhcp
wireless_essid ACCESS_POINT_NAME
wireless_mode managed
wireless_key PASSWORD

#use this config if WPA
iface wlan0 inet static
wpa-ssid ACCESS_POINT_NAME
wpa-psk PASSWORD
address 10.0.0.20
netmask 255.255.255.0
gateway 10.0.0.1


use dhcp or static, just merge the configuration that fits you
then
ifdown wlan0
ifup wlan0

I then copied the extracted files from the appropriate root-addition archive to the extracted zubuntu-desktop directories on my laptop (i.e. the 3 files from the root-addition /boot directory to the zubuntu-desktop /boot directory and the 2.6.26 directory & its files from the root-addition /lib/modules directory to the zubuntu-desktop /lib/modules directory). I copied the resultant file structure to the SD card's first partition.

I flashed the multiboot kernel OK - using a CF card as I presumed that I wouldn't need to do it again. I got the Omegamoon screen showing the Zubuntu 1.0 distro (as per the instructions). I selected Zubuntu 1.0. The SD card was recognised there was a message 'VFS: Mounted root (ext2 filesystem) readonly' and a message stating 'Freeing init memory 84K). Then there was a message 'Warning: unable to open an initial console' and the Zaurus froze.

Help please!


I'd try redownloading the files and extracting from the command line:

CODE
cd sd-mount-point
tar -xvpf zubuntu-tarball.tar.bz2

Thanks same, finally I can get my 3200 wifi on with Zubuntu.

However, I notice it can't get online if the ssid is hidden (not broadcast)...

Anyway, does anyone ever able to get sound on 3100 or 3200?


To get sound going, run alsamixer and unmute all channels. This should do the trick
