I am pleased to see all the great work put by cortez (thank you sir) and other people into this distro. I had been away from Zaurus developments for a while and this is extremely encouraging.
My question is: Can you run a Zaurus (in my case SL-C1000) without a battery using Zubuntu? I can get it to reboot into Cacko without a battery, but once cacko finishes loading, I get a dialog asking me to change the battery and the system shuts down. I'm thinking perhaps this wouldn't happen in Zubuntu.
This is what I'm doing (I got this information from the forum, try it at your own risk):
- Remove the battery.
- Press D + B while you connect the AC adapter. This will bring a command line prompt.
- When you are asked to login, enter 'root' (no quotes). You need no password.
- At the root prompt (#) type 'reboot' (again, no quotes) and hit Enter. This will reboot your Zaurus and load the OS.
Just wondering if someone knows if this would work in Zubuntu without the system shutting down. Or maybe there is a good reason why a Zaurus shouldn't be run without a battery (power regulation)?
Thank you very much in advance!
